  Fortunately, there are two very useful self-explainatory boolean
gconf keys for these things:

1. /system/osso/af/camera-is-out
2. /system/osso/af/camera-has-turned

  BTW, since it's gconf, you can set-up notification callback in your
applications for these events to, in case you need that. Hope this

P.S There is a D-Bus way to do the same thing as well but i think
gconf is much simpler to deal with as compared to D-Bus.
