Working on my iPhone app today I came across the need to setup the camera to only take still photos, and therefore ignore videos and hide the video camera. The Apple docs mention that to do this you just set the
mediaTypes attributes to only
[[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects: (NSString *) kUTTypeImage, nil]. Unfortunately it’s a bit of a pain to figure out just how to pull in kUTTTypeImage. Here’s how you do it:
- Add the
MobileCoreServicesframework to your project.
- In the header file that is used to create the UIImagePickerController, add
cameraUI.mediaTypes = [[NSArray alloc] initWithObjects: (NSString *) kUTTypeImage, nil];
I hope that helps. You can also use
kUTTypeVideo is you want to use only video and not include still images.
