On the playbook OS 2.1, when I compare what I am seeing between the camera on a swf file and the native camera app - I see about half as much - so the swf camera looks zoomed in by a factor of two.
I am testing with a local swf file and browsing to it with the browser. It gives me the usual accept message. (Another thing about it is that it does not rotate - the rest of the swf file contents do but the video is upside down.)
Here, somewhat, is my code. I have tried scaling my holder down to make sure there is no video outside the screen and there is not. What is in my camera is just zoomed in! I have also tried it with the desktop webcam and it is mostly comparible in zoom - Flash cuts off a little compared to the Web cam software but not nearly as much as on the Playbook. Any thoughts?
cam = new Video(1024, 600);
myTimer = new Timer(200, 1);
holder = new MovieClip();
// then in the init
signal = Camera.getCamera("1");
signal.setMode(cam.width, cam.height, 30, false);

Anybody else have this problem?
I have just tried out the camera with an app now (before it was a swf) and it still starts zoomed compared to the native camera app. It is about 1.5 magnification which is really annoying for my purpose.
Has anyone used the camera - can you confirm it starts zoomed in or did you find a way around it?
