The DepthVision Camera is a Time of Flight (ToF) camera on newer Galaxy phones including Galaxy S20+ and S20 Ultra that can judge depth and distance to take your photography to new levels. It uses the known speed of light to measure distance, effectively counting the amount of time it takes for a reflected beam of light to return to the camera sensor. This smartphone ToF Camera is used with Live focus video and Quick Measure, letting you add more creative flair and get information in a way you've never seen before.
In the case of Live focus video, you're now able to blur out the background in real time as you take a video, adding a brand new vibe to your movies. You can even swap between foreground and background focus with ease, to switch up the focus with a tap. Live focus video is available on both the front and rear cameras, so simply open the Camera app and swipe to Live focus video to try your hand at movie direction.
With Quick Measure, the camera acts as a 3D camera, judging width, height, area, volume, and more when you put an object in frame. Quick Measure is a preloaded app, so open it up and put an object in focus to get a real-time measurement right on your screen.
