I need to access native mobile camera through my web application which runs in the mobile browsers to capture and save the images to database.

How can i achieve this.

Thanks in advance.

You can use input type file and accept image. Meaning the user has the option to select the camera.[^]

Good luck!

For that you need to use html5 upload features. This also requires the server to support it to work.

Normally you get to choose between video, camera or choose existing. Maybe you choose a default input method and maybe that could be the reason you don't get a choice anymore.
