Some comments to http://dev.w3.org/2009/dap/camera/Overview-API.html.

This statement is unclear: ³If a CaptureAudioOptions parameter was present,
and its maxNumberOfMediaFiles attribute was defined, successCB must be
invoked after the user has captured a number of audio clips defined in
maxNumberOfMediaFiles.  If user exited the native audio recorder application
prematurely, errorCB must be invoked.²:

If the user exits the recorder before the max clips are recorded, why is
that an error? In general, how is ³premature² determined? This comment also
applies to the other capture types.

+++++

What is expected to happen when the pending operation is cancelled? Is the
camera application automatically exited and the user returned to the
browser/widget application? What happens to the media the user may have
already captured?

+++++

How can a similar function to the ³ViewFinderStreaming² feature of the BONDI
API be provided, e.g. through some other API, or is this under consideration
for this or a later API version in DAP?
