Created attachment 8467247 [details] 2014-08-04-12-20-55.png [Blocking Requested - why for this release]: End users should be able to videotape anything without extreme backlighting. Flame, while running: Gaia 9e5907995c9327f14cb5d182cee5ff16b1743ed4 SourceStamp 3f7db58a354c BuildID 20140804000204 Version 32.0 Base image: 123 STR: 1. Using another Flame device, open up the settings app so that a white screen is showing. 2. Open the Camera app on another Flame device, and point it at the screen and try to record it. Expected: I could record the screen and would be able to see the text in the settings app Actual: I cannot see anything but white glare and extreme backlight Will test on v122 and see if it worked there. On the ZTE Open C with a current build there is some backlighting, but not as extreme as on the Flame.
This issue doesn't occur on v122, so I think it is a Vendcom issue.
QA Wanted to check if this reproduces on the v123 base image.
I misunderstood the qawanted request upon first starting this and ended up checking more than requested. What I found was that neither the 122 or 123 base image alone reproduced this issue, but I was able to reproduce this using both bases on the latest 2.1 Flame build.

Can we do more branch checks here to see if this is a regression?
Able to repro on Flame 2.0, Flame 1.4 and Open C 2.1 Actual result: While another Flame's settings page is in the DUT's video recording viewfinder, the screen will be unreadably bright if the DUT is about a foot away.

NI mike here to get his input before making a blocking call. Could this be a JB specific issue ?
(In reply to bhavana bajaj [:bajaj] from comment #6) > NI mike here to get his input before making a blocking call. Could this be a > JB specific issue ? This doesn't seem to happen with Flame/KK (v162-3). If I start recording and then point the camera at my very-black mousepad, then point it at either a window (it's very sunny outside) or the Settings screen of another Flame (with backlight set to maximum)--or vice-versa--the exposure automatically adjusts correctly.
Created attachment 8471048 [details] [diff] [review] WIP - expose exposure (heh) metering modes, v1 Flame reports some curious values: - metering modes: default mode 'frame-average', supported modes: 'frame-average' 'center-weighted' 'spot-metering' 'center-weighted' 'spot-metering-adv' 'center-weighted-adv' No idea what the 'adv' modes are; not sure why there are two 'center-weighted' modes.
We've decided to not block on this because the use case in the bug isn't a regression & unlikely use case for a user to trigger.
