Image Control not updating when variable is set

I have a camera control (camCamera), a button (btnCapture), and an image control (Image1). When I click the button it should set the image in the image control through aa variable to what is shown in the camera control. However, the image control doesn't appear to be updating. There are no errors on the PowerApp. Here is how the button and image controls are configured...

 

btnCapture.OnSelect:

Set(_txtImageFilename,(Text(Now(),"[$-en-US]yyyymmdd_hhmmss") & ".jpg"));Set(_CapturedImage, camCamera.Photo);

 

Image1.Image:

_CapturedImage

Hi @bshannon ,'

You cannot "remote activate" a camera control - the only way to capture a picture is selecting he control itself.
