When I ask for the picture path for taking a camera picture
Gives the wrong path. I can only use:
Perhaps this is a bug?
Are you sure you are using the API as expected?
Here is what I tried on emulator:
Console.WriteLine (Android.OS.Environment.GetExternalStoragePublicDirectory (Android.OS.Environment.DirectoryPictures));
Also note that the documentation for DIRECTORY_PICTURES say: "Note that this is primarily a convention for the top-level public directory, as the media scanner will find and collect pictures in any directory."
If you still have some code that should work fine with your environment, please post/attach it.
