YAY! 512 downloads in July 2004 and 344 in August and 273 in September... :-)
This is my first released P900 software (click here for other P900 downloads). I wrote it because I did want to see a "full screen viewfinder".
The software itself is based on some BUGS of the standard SonyEricsson ecam.lib library (at least in the R1A release of CDA/organiser firmware). Playing a bit around with these bugs, I eventually found a dirty hack to get a "full screen viewfinder" (it's actually a shot without the direct-screen viewfinder hanging around).
Since it's based on other people bugs I cannot guarantee it will run on any P900. But it was just too nice to have it only on my P900, so I released it as freeware - enjoy it! It does not feature anything except the continuous shooting routine.
Cheat mode: if you installed a screen-capture software like Yipton's SCap, then you can capture and save a screen image soon after it was shot...:-)
This software has an official UID assigned to me from EPOC UID Number Allocation Service at Symbian on 2004-Feb-11.
Sources: extract with tar xpjvf - the included Makefile is good for P900 UIQ SDK for Linux; if you want to compile them in a Windows environment, you will need to change a few things (but, please, don't ask me for them).
I am still experimenting; I hope to get to a clean solution and write a software that analyzes real-time the data captured by the camera eye.
If you have fun with it, drop me a line at the e-mail address at the bottom of this page; I happen to like very much to receive emails like "I am from Japan and I am showing this stunning software to my friends".
