Capture image

A decision block that starts a Camera app and lets the user take a picture.

The fiber will pause until the Camera app has taken a picture or the timeout expired.

If you want to take a picture without user interaction, use the Take picture block instead.

The destination path can be set to an existing or new file, or to a directory where the file will be placed with an automatic name. The path to the actual JPEG image file saved is assigned to the image file variable.
