Description:

Each viewfinder mode provides a different set of capabilities, which can be checked using camera_has_feature() after choosing a mode. Not all cameras support all viewfinder modes, so ensure you query camera_get_supported_vf_modes() before using camera_set_vf_mode().

For more information, see Viewfinder Mode.
