Hello ColorOS SuperFans,

INTRODUCTION

For taking photos, we can use main, wide angle or telephoto lens according to our need.

But if you go into video recording mode, you will see that only main lens is available at various zoom levels for video recording.

What if you want to use the wide angle lens for video recording? Previously, I have posted an article showing a method of using wide angle & telephoto lens during video recording. But that method was somewhat complicated. You can view the article here: 「ColorOS How To」 Record Video Using The Wide-angle / Telephoto Lens

After posting that article, I found out a surprizingly simple way to enable the wide angle lens in video recording mode. So this is a short tutorial about this setting.

THE DEFAULT VIDEO MODE

When we go into the video recording mode in the camera app, there is no way to select wide angle lens. Other company mobiles using ColorOS does in fact have a wide angle recording enabled. This made me curious to find out more about it.

THE REASON IS RESOLUTION

If you go into the settings, you will see that the default rear video resolution is set to 4K. But the wide angle lens can only capture at 1080p 30fps. That's the reason why wide angle lens is not available during 4K video recording.

THE SETTING TO CHANGE

So if you select 1080p 30fps video recording mode in the settings and go back, you will notice that an additional dot now appears on the left side in the bottom lens selctor. That's the wide angle lens selector.

Select it and now you can capture wide angle video easily. But remember to to change the setting to 4K afterwards if you want to should the best quality footage by main lens.

CONCLUSION

We would like to use the best resolution for video recording. That's why we never change this setting. Why would I select 1080p when I can use 4K? And there is no mention anywhere that we need to decrease the resolution to use wide angle lens. This feature is obscured and difficult to find out, that's why I made this article. Many people are asking for this feature repeatedly but it is already available but hidden inside the settings. ColorOS should make this setting easily discoverable.

I have created a YouTube video titled "Enable Wide Angle Lens For Video Recording In ColorOS (In Hindi)". Please watch it here.
