This is basally what I want to do: The user taps a button, the camera comes on, a 5 second timer starts, they step back, center their face in the camera and the picture is taken automatically.
This is may camera code, this works but the user needs to push the camera button to take the picture. Thanks!
var file = await CrossMedia.Current.TakePhotoAsync(new Plugin.Media.Abstractions.StoreCameraMediaOptions
DefaultCamera = Plugin.Media.Abstractions.CameraDevice.Front,
PhotoSize = Plugin.Media.Abstractions.PhotoSize.Small
if (file == null) return;
byte imageAsBytes = null;
using (var memoryStream = new MemoryStream())
imageAsBytes = memoryStream.ToArray();
