Camera.open() returns null

When I call

mCamera = Camera.open()
it returns null, what could be causing this? My device is the Nexus 7.

I already have the permissions set in my
AndroidManifest.xml
:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.CAMERA" />

Answer

Figured it out,

You need to call Camera.open(0).

THIS IS ONLY VALID AND WORKING ON THE NEXUS 7 device, as it only has one camera, so is only useful if targeting that device only.
