See original GitHub issue

Here is my code.

View .html

<ion-view title="Sell Your stuff" class="viewc">
	<ion-content scroll="false" class="viewc" has-bouncing="false" style="margin-bottom:0px;">
		<div id="maincamerasect">
			<a href="#/listing" style="text-decoration: none;color: white;font-size:28px;padding: 5%;float: left;">X</a>
			<a ng-click="switchcamera();" style="position:absolute;right:81px;font-size:32px;color:white;top:3%;"><img src="img/refresh.png" style="width:36px;height:36px;" /></a>
			<a style="position:absolute;right:22px;font-size:32px;color:white;top:3%;"><img src="img/flash-on-indicator.png" style="width:36px;height:36px;" /></a>
			<a ng-click="takepic();" style="position:absolute;font-size:32px;color:white;bottom:5%;text-align:center;width:100%;left:0;"><img src="img/takephoto.png" style="width:80px;height:80px;" /></a>


      CameraPreview.startCamera({x: 0, y: 0, width: window.screen.width, height: window.screen.height, camera: "front", toBack: true, tapPhoto: true, previewDrag: false});

     $scope.switchcamera = function(){
	$scope.takepic = function(){
		CameraPreview.takePicture({width:200, height:200, quality: 85}, function(base64PictureData){
		  //$scope.inputPicture.content = 'data:image/jpeg;base64,'+base64PictureData;

The idea of toBack=true is that the camera is at the back of your app. You have to make a hole in your app for you to show the camera. To do that you have to make every layer transparent.

aside from doing this:

html, body { background-color: transparent; }

you also need to make your ion-view and ion-content transparent., .camera-transparent ion-nav-view, .camera-transparent ion-view { background-color: transparent !important; }

I set .camera-transparent class to body element only when its in the page where i need to show the camera.
