  5. Aim your device at the subject and touch the screen to focus on a specific area. When the focal point turns green touch the camera shutter button.

You can also touch Switch Camera to switch between the front and back cameras, which will switch the back camera image to the thumbnail view and vice versa.

Recording Dual Video

    Note: You can change the thumbnail image border only in camera mode. But you can adjust the image size after switching over to recording mode.
  2. Aim your device at the scene and then touch Record Movie Button to begin recording.
