Since Vuforia blocks the Android camera (So Camera.open() does not work) how can I tell the Vuforia camera wrapper to make a high-resolution image ( like via android.hardware.Camera.open().takePicture(... ). I dont want to get the current frame (which is always 640x480 i think?) I need a high resolution version of that. How is that possible? Thanks in advance :)

Hi, 

you can get the camera image as explained here:

https://developer.vuforia.com/forum/faq/android-how-can-i-access-camera-image

However, this will be at the resolution of the camera video background (e.g. 640 x 480 or 600 x 480), indeed;

grabbing a  higher resolution snapshot is not supproted by the current version of the SDK; however, we have seen another couple of similar requests, so we are taking this into consideration for a future update of the SDK;

in the meantime, the best is to capture your request in our Wish List, so that it gets the best visibility:
