unable to select BackFace camera on Surface Pro 4

  • Hi, I have a simple camera test app with a button to flip the camera from from the front facing camera to the back facing camera, but this does not work on a Surface Pro 4. It works on an iPhone 6. There are definitely 2 cameras available when I check QtMultimedia.availableCameras. Is this a known bug or is there something wrong with the following code? Thanks.

    Camera {
    id: camera
    captureMode: Camera.CaptureStillImage
    position: Camera.UnspecifiedPosition

        function flipCamera() {
            if (camera.cameraState !== Camera.ActiveState)
            camera.position = (camera.position === Camera.FrontFace ? Camera.BackFace : Camera.FrontFace);

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Are you using one of the Qt for Windows package or for WinRT ?

  • Hi, it's for Window 10 Enterprise edition, running on a Surface Pro 4

    Then you will more likely have two items it in the list of available cameras.
