'Error capturing image' with Phonegap on Android

I need to capture an image with my Phonegap app. On iOS everything works fine but on Android (via Phonegap Build) it throws an error with "Error capturing image".

I added the following lines to my config.xml but that doesn't change anything:

<feature name="Camera">
<param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.camera.CameraLauncher" />
</feature>
<feature name="http://api.phonegap.com/1.0/device" />
<feature name="http://api.phonegap.com/1.0/camera" />
<feature name="http://api.phonegap.com/1.0/file" />
<feature name="http://api.phonegap.com/1.0/media" />
<feature name="http://api.phonegap.com/1.0/network" />


My API call looks like that:

$(document).on('click', '#cameraPreview', function() {
pictureSource = navigator.camera.PictureSourceType;
destinationType = navigator.camera.DestinationType;

navigator.camera.getPicture(onGetPictureSuccess, onGetPictureFail, {
quality: 40,
sourceType: Camera.PictureSourceType.CAMERA,
destinationType: Camera.DestinationType.FILE_URI,
allowEdit: true,
encodingType: Camera.EncodingType.JPG,
targetWidth: 1000,
targetHeight: 1000,
saveToPhotoAlbum: true,
correctOrientation: 1
});
});


I use Phonegap 3.7 with Phonegap Build.

Answer

Ok, now I know the answer. The problem is the saveToPhotoAlbum: true option. Android doesn't recognize this. When I delete this option everything works fine.
