I really appreciate the help, but I don’t know what’s going on. I even saw in the video you mentioned that it worked.
I am studying.

Try this one :nerd_face: :point_down:

  • Action: android.media.action.IMAGE_CAPTURE

It opens the camera but you won’t be able to get a result after activity as mentioned above. Is there a specific reason that you want to use activity starter instead of camera component?
