public static abstract class CameraState.StateError
extends Object


Error that the camera has encountered.

The camera may report an error when it's in one of the following states: CameraState.Type.OPENING, CameraState.Type.OPEN, CameraState.Type.CLOSING and CameraState.Type.CLOSED.

CameraX attempts to recover from certain errors it encounters when opening the camera device, in these instances, the error is recoverable, otherwise, the error is critical.

When CameraX encounters a critical error, the developer and/or user must intervene to restore camera function. When the error is recoverable, the developer and/or user can still aid in the recovery process, as shown in the following table.

State Error Code Recoverable How to handle it
CameraState.Type.OPEN ERROR_STREAM_CONFIG No Make sure you set up your use cases correctly.
