SCap: Screen Capture utility for the SonyEricsson P800/P900
SCap for the SonyEricsson P800/P900 (Symbian
OS version 7
) allows you to capture the full screen of a P800/P900 and save
it to file. Start screen capture by selecting Start capture
from the SCap
menu, then use the hotkey to capture the screen. The images are stored in a folder
and you can use the P800/P900 Pictures application to view them.
SCap can take screenshots in both Flip Open and Flip Closed.
- File format: Save screenshots as 24-bits bmp, 8-bits bmp,
gif or jpg. For jpg you can configure the image quality (and
thus the file size).
- Location: You can configure screenshots to be stored on either the internal
disk or the Memory Stick.
- Filename: You can specify the base file name of the screenshot image files.
SCap will append a unique number to the base filename. For example, the default base
file name is screen and the default image type is jpg, so images are called
screen.jpg, screen-1.jpg etc.
- Hotkeys: Select Camera button, Browser button, Power button
or Jog dial select as the hotkey.
- Auto/manual stop: You can configure SCap to either automatically stop the capturing
after you've taken a screenshot (and thus release the hotkey to its normal use) or to leave it
on until you manually select Stop capture from the SCap menu. This is handy if
you want to take several screenshots.
- Visual feedback: If you enable visual feedback you get a small popup to say SCap
is saving the image and a popup to say it is done. You can disable them which is usefull when
taken screenshots of games such as EDoom or EMame as these popups will take these games out of
their full screen mode.
- Audible feedback: You may select an audio file to be played after the screen capture
is fully completed. Audible and visual feedback are usefull because for example saving a
screenshot as gif on the memory stick may take 10 seconds. In that period you cannot take
- Latest version of SCap for the P800/P900 is 1.0. Download
the .SIS file and install it on the P800/P900 as per normal.
- Latest source code is released under the
GNU General Public License (GPL).
To build from source:
- Unzip the SCap source code preserving directory structure
- Change directory to \scap\group and build the project scap.
There's not much to see, but here's the general configuration

Both are taken with SCap of course ;-)
