android (Archived) Problem! Camera Mode won't stop taking pictures

Recommended Posts

Everything was fine yesterday. Am sure I got an update last night. 

 

Tried to use Camera Mode to save documents just now and the bloody thing just keeps taking pictures and doesn't stop until it has 8. 

 

Galaxy s3. Tried turning off burst mode and things in the camera settings but it doesn't effect it. 

 

 

It is only in document mode that this happens. It didn't happen 24 hours ago.

I am testing Moleskine Notebook for Evernote using Samsung Galaxy SIII with Android 4.1.2

 

When I open Evernote version 5.0.1. in Page Camera (for Moleskine) mode, there is a bug:

  • I press the green Shot button --> system starts making series of flash photos I cannot stop (I am not holding Shot button!). At the end photos are not saved and I cannot use this functionality.
  • If I disable "Activate multishot camera" in Settings then everything is working fine, but I cannot use advanced features of Page Camera - cropping, deskewing, smart stickers...

 

The same issue has been highlighted in another post by another user (as above).

Reporting.  Just to clarify, this is while you're in Page Camera mode?

Yes in Page Camera mode. 

It just happened in the standard camera mode too. 

 

After a bit of testing it seems it only happens when the flash is used.

I have this same problem as of this morning on a Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Have only tried it with page camera. Kept shooting pictures, can't X out, only way to stop it is to press the home button.

Mine happens with both the flash ON and OFF selected.

Same problem, Galaxy S3, only in Page Camera mode. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling current version of app, but did not help.

Definitely repro'd this internally.  With flash on and off.

 

The pictures that do end up getting taken are funky as well.  I would not recommend using at the moment on any current notes you have.

Strange. It definitely doesn't happen on mine when I have the flash off.

Update--same error occurred with regular/non-page Camera mode.

 

Yup, we're reproducing that one too. Thanks for reporting.

I have the same problem with Samsung S3 (4G). It worked once this morning, immediately after the update, then when I've tried to use it several times since I've had the problem of it taking pictures in 'burst' mode.

Everyone, thanks for reporting.  If you can Private Message logs, I'll append them to the active bug we're working.

 

UPDATE: (Belay that request.  We've identified the bug and should have a fix out in short order)

Thanks for looking into this so quickly.  I was excited to see the Flash always on bug fixed, but was disappointed with this new multiple shot bug.  I get this bug regardless of Flash setting.  Also, it does seem intermittent.

Hi All, 

 

We are working on this issue and we will push on update very shortly. 

In the meantime you can use the default camera: 

- go to settings 

- select Note Creation 

- uncheck Activate Multishot camera

 

Thanks!

Thanks.  The multiple flashes and my desperate attempts to cancel must've been a real sight for my coworkers!

New to the forum, which I found after a panic search following experiencing the exact issues described above.  Delighted to discover that I am not alone with this AND that the guys are fixing it.

And by the way, deactivating the multishot camera setting did not fix things.  I tried to take a page shot using the widget and it started snapping away, again.  After a reboot, the setting was still unchecked.  Galaxy SIII

Hi All, 

 

The problem is fixed in the latest update (5.0.2)!

We could see some flashing phones around here too...

Great!  That works now.  Still can't get it to recognize the stickers, alas.
