Taken (will some mod.) from http://discussion.forum.nokia.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=63464 pys60 (the full name is python for series 60) 1.1.3 provide both camera and graphics display. So, it is trivial to take photo and preview.
from appuifw import * import camera canvas=Canvas() app.body=canvas running=1 def quit(): global running running=0 app.exit_key_handler=quit while running: image = camera.take_photo(size= (160,120)) canvas.blit(image, target=(8, 12, 168, 132)) # center it
Here I use the small size (160x120) for preview. When the real photo is taken I can use the full (defualt) size of (640x480) on my 6600 phone.
