How to capture images from camera and store in Common Data Model entity?

I made a basic app against a new entity and an Image field. When I tap the field I just get iCloud or OneDrive retrieval. How do I activate the camera?

Re: How to capture images from camera and store in Common Data Model entity?

 

Please add a Camera control to the app. This will allow you to use the camera device and take snapshots (e.g. when tapping the live camera image). The output of this control can be used in formulas, for example:

 

    image2.Image = camera.Photo

 

I hope this helps.
