Camera and videos access

I know that at this moment Android player does not support direct access to playbook camera hardware. But when I open gallery app throught my app, and press the camera button in the upper right corner, it opens the default(QNX) native camera app (and it takes photo normally, and display it in gallery app). Same happens when I try  to load video file throught ES File explorer  (it opens the native playbook video player).

 

Can somebody give me advice how to programmatically open the native camera and video app, from my android application ?
