Camera in Game Canvas... Please Help!

[ Edited ]



I'm trying to port a camera application from regular J2ME phones to blackberry Bold and Storm.   I have only been able to make the camera appear if I extend UIApplication class and post a Field object into the main screen.  When I initialize with VideoControl.USE_DIRECT_VIDEO inside GameCanvas, it fails silently and nothing appears on screen.  When I call getSnapshot an array of length zero is returned. 


Is it possible to use camera inside GameCanvas for Bold and Storm?  If so, am I supposed to impliment it differently from other j2me devices?
