  • Wide (1x)

  • Selfie (x0.7)

  • Selfie (x1)

  • Ultra-Wide (0.5x)

  • Telephoto (2x, or 3x on iPhone 13 and later)

Note: Currently, Switcher Studio does not support Cinematic Mode. Additionally, the Ultra Wide and Telephoto lens options will only appear if they are available on the selected device.

Selecting & Changing Camera Lenses

Switcher Studio lets you choose from the available camera lenses for your camera views. You can only record or broadcast from one lens per device at a time. However, you can change the lens selection at any time.

To change the camera lens for a camera view:

  • Open the Switcher Studio app

  • Tap the camera you want to change in the Sources panel.

  • Tap the blue camera icon in the top-center.

    • A menu will appear displaying the available lenses.

  • Tap the camera lens you want to use.

Note: If you switch camera lenses while "Record On All Cameras" is enabled, Switcher Studio will temporarily stop capturing video for the camera you are reorienting and start a new video file.
