Darwin Camera

Darwin camera makes it super easy to add camera to your Flutter app. It uses the official camera plugin implementation underneath.

  • Captures RAW image at maximum resolution supported by the device camera.
  • Provides a toggle between front and back camera.
    • You can configure what it defaults to on opening.
  • Provides configuration to set quality of the captured image.
  • Provides a minimal UI for the reviewing the capture before saving image.
  • Supports both Android and iOS.

       filePath: filePath,
       resolution: ResolutionPreset.high,
       defaultToFrontFacing: false,
