HarmonyOS Multi Camera Mode: Everything you need to know
At present, Huawei HarmonyOS is one the most favored operating system to capture headlines in the software industry. There are so many things that grabbed our attention like its features, rollout process, markets, update schedules, users experience, and so on. Alongside the market competition, the Huawei device holders are also keeping their eyes on these things.
The reason is its amazing distributive capabilities and features that make excite users. Over this, the Chinese tech giant continuously adding more delightful features that make users think- WOW! we can also do this. In this article, we are going to discuss one of the HarmonyOS exclusive features called- multi-camera mode.
Which device cloud use multi-camera mode:
HarmonyOS 2.0 version 22.214.171.124 officially installed the multi-camera mode on eligible smartphones. The flagships device, which has been updated over this version can use this photography mode. We can count 20 devices including the Huawei P50 series, Mate X2, Mate 40 series, P40 series, Mate30 series, Huawei MatePad Pro 12.6-inch, etc for receiving this camera mode by this time.
As of now, it’s only available for Chines models. You can match this update version on your smartphones if you have already installed it, will be able to use this feature.
Where to Find: Under the same WiFi or Hotspot users can find the multicamera mode on the camera app. Just select your friend’s device after opening the camera preview and you can start shooting the scene or whatever you have planned.
What is HarmonyOS multi-camera mode:
The recently added multi-camera mode lets the user access the camera on other HarmonyOS devices during the video shoot. In means, a user can access the camera of other users with the same version for clicking snaps or recording videos in a certain range.
In other words, the new feature allows you to connect multiple HarmonyOS devices including smartphones and tablets simultaneously and control their camera. However, they must connect with the same Wi-Fi network. When the connection is established, the user can record videos from various views through one device using the default camera app.
Additionally, users could remotely control the camera on other devices using a single smartphone. It allows multi-angle shooting at the same time using different devices. The users that are often involved in video shooting such as vloggers, videographers, social media influencers, etc will feel blessed after having this multi-mode.
Let discuss this mode more deeply-
Benefits of having multi-camera mode:
Let do a point-to-point comparison and understand what this mode has brought us. Suppose a scenario that you are shooting a video with your friends somewhere in between lake or sea enjoying surfing, paddling a sea kayak, or any other sport. We’ll discuss two situations, the first one with normal camera mode, and the second one with multi-camera mode.
In the first condition, you and recoding a group video from multiple angles using two or more cameras on a smartphone or tablet. In this condition, all you can do is to shoot one scene from different devices placed at different angles. Afterward, you have to merge those videos and set the order using other video editing tools. It’s not only hectic work but time-consuming too.
This situation can be more simplistic with the HarmonyOS multi-camera mode. If all devices are on the latest HarmonyOS version, all you have to do is to set the device at the angles you want to recode video from. Now, turn on the multi-camera mode and recode the seen simultaneously in one decision. Furthermore, you can also switch in between the back and forth during the record. No after recoding work, no video editing tool, all is to just to set angles and shoot the video. Isn’t it amazing?
Nowadays, the multi-camera mode isn’t a big surprise with the latest technology. It’s a come thing is moving, web series, variety shows, daily soaps, even in short moving. This multi-angle view lets the audience experience the same scene from different respective and brings a more engaging and enjoyable experience.
Smartphone with multi-camera modes is quite tricky and surprising. Although, shooting the same scene with a different smartphone simultaneously can capture multi-angle scenes, control them was still a big issue. HarmonyOS multi-camera mode is the answer to the question that makes controlling all device the device connected under the same WiFi network easily.
Huawei’s and Photography Features:
