Use Director's View and Dual recording on your Galaxy S21 5G phone
Are you an aspiring vlogger or YouTuber that has difficulty juggling multiple devices when you are trying to record yourself? Or maybe you just need something new to freshen things up in your videos? Either way, you should check out Director’s View and Dual recording on the new Galaxy S21 5G lineup. It lets you record a video using the rear camera and selfie camera at the same time! You will be able to record things around you and your reactions simultaneously.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.
Note: You can use Director’s View by itself (with no selfie camera) or with Dual recording, which lets you simultaneously record with the rear camera and selfie camera at the same time. Director’s View also gives you the option to switch between the rear camera lenses.
- Tap Picture-in-picture to have a small window appear in the corner, where you can see yourself in real time as you record.
- Tap Split to display the camera’s viewfinder on the top and selfie camera on the bottom. You will get a large view of whatever you are recording as well as yourself.
- Tap Single to make only the camera’s viewfinder appear. In other words, this will turn off Dual recording and the selfie camera.
Note: Switching from the rear camera to the selfie camera while recording will turn off Dual recording.
