UIView to show the camera, take a picture, preview it, return UIImage.

Even though an UIImagePickerController allows a custom overlay to override the default camera controls, it gives you no control over its camera bounds. Instead it captures a UIImage in full camera resolution, giving you the option to edit as a second step.

Note: as of v0.3.0, you must specify the camera position before the camera will activate.


pod 'JBCameraView'


Interface Builder

  • Drag a UIView into the interface and set its type to JBCameraView
  • Set its delegate to a class that implements JBCameraViewDelegate
  • Set the preferred camera position (will failover to the other one)
  • Call takePicture on JBCameraView the UIImage on your delegate


JBCameraView *cameraView = [[JBCameraView alloc] initWithFrame:CGRect(320, 320)];
cameraView.delegate = self;
cameraView.position = JBCameraViewPositionBack;

[cameraView takePicture];
