Thumbnails are supported for a low shutter lag single photos and photo sequences.

To enable thumbnails, set ThumbnailEnabled to true.

You can set the desired thumbnail size through DesiredThumbnailSize and set the thumbnail format through ThumbnailFormat.

The desired thumbnail size.


The actual dimension of the thumbnail is not guaranteed to be the value specified by DesiredThumbnailSize, but the system will attempt to create thumbnails as close as possible to this value.
