Seems camera support saw progress for the low-level driver part as
recent as yesterday:
User-level access to camera seems tracked here:
Using the camera from sripts seems possible since 2 months (but possibly
specific to certain revision of the phone, or maybe the devkit):
The phone ships with the more stable "amber" release of PureOS. Geeks
might wanna explore the in-progress "byzantium" release instead, to get
and play with bleeding edge changes:

A geeky way to locate _some_ adaptive apps is to look for packages
depending on libhandy-1-0 (or libhandy-0.0-0). That only covers GTK
apps, though - I am unaware if any such package-level indicators exist
for Qt-based apps like VLC.
The user-friendly way is to use the appstore, which shows only adaptive
apps - and yes, there are only very few so far...
