As we all know that Apple’s iPhone 11 Pro has three cameras on the back and one on the front for taking mesmerizing pictures and shooting videos. All users use front or back cameras separately according to their requirements to take selfies, photos, and shooting videos.
And honestly, we’ve all be curious about how it would be possible to use all cameras at the same time. However, even now technologically it has not been feasible.
Let’s recall the Keynote address on launching of iPhone 11 Pro at the last WWDC. Apple in demonstration of FiLMic uses all the cameras on the phone to make a video simultaneously. And now an app naming Double Take is available by the FiLMic Pro guys to take pictures and videos using all the cameras of the smartphone at the same time.
Additionally, Double Take is compatible with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XS, and the iPhone XR and users can free download it from the App Store.
This app will allow users to use all the four cameras on the iPhone 11 Pro, three on the iPhone 11, two on the iPhone XR. Also, it give choice to the users that they can start shooting after selecting different cameras. According to the demo presented at WWDC, the FiLMic Pro guys utilized all the four cameras on the phone at the same time. Nevertheless, there is a slight difference in the app.
Double Take has the ability to access all the cameras on your iPhone 11 Pro at once and will display a feed using a split-screen. However, for recording in the iPhone 11 Pro the user has to choose any two of the four.
Moreover, according to the app description,
“DoubleTake by FiLMiC converts your iPhone into a multi-cam studio offering you to shoot video from two cameras at once on the latest devices.”
When talking about the interface of the app, its a very simple and user have to open the camera picker view to watch all the outlooks from different cameras. It also allows the user to choose their frames and cameras. You can select your desired cameras to shoot with by just tapping on different feeds.
In addition, there is an option naming Picture in Picture (PiP) provided by Double Take window. This enables the user to keep an eye on both the cameras. Moving the PiP around the screen, zoom in, or swipe it away are the options available for the user in the app.
Users of the app can shoot videos in two ways. One as a separate file and second as a composite video that includes the PiP window just like you watch on the screen. Double Take lets the user to utilize any two cameras to create a 50/50 split-screen effect, saved as a single video.
There are many other features available in the app such as focus and exposure lock on both cameras during shooting video. Double Take allows the user to create 24fps, 25fps, and 30fps videos at 108p which are considerable for film projects.
