Detail App: Use multiple cameras (including iPhone and iPad) on the Mac

On the Apple Mac, you need a camera every now and then, for FaceTime calls with family, for online team meetings, for streaming, tutorials, interviews and more. Whom the built-in camera in MacBook, iMac, studio display and Co. is not sufficient or if you want to be able to switch between several cameras, you can use the Detail Use Mac app. Detail helps access the cameras of connected iPhones and iPads, as well as connected webcams and other devices. A studio setup can be tinkered with and you can switch back and forth between the individual perspectives – ideal for creative projects, twitch streaming and the like. The app is part of the 230+ full versions in Setapp.

The Detail App for the Apple Mac helps to bundle multiple camera signals, switch between the video feeds, display text and graphics and simplify streaming, meetings or tutorial recording with additional functions.

    Hey,
    I use the two Apple cameras a lot for video and photos on my iPhone 7.
    What really annoys me is that I can't switch from one camera to another (from front to rear camera) without stopping the video function.
    Are there already possibilities with the newer IPhone?
    Thank you

      I just tried it on my iPhone 13, but the button to select the camera disappears after starting the recording. But as far as I know, the Filmic Pro app allows you to record all cameras at the same time. You would then have to cut it together to fit.
