Q: I have an Ultra Wide camera in my smartphone but the app still uses just Wide Camera. How can I go Ultra Wide?
The app is capable of manual selection of the numerous cameras onboard.
If you haven’t already you can make the selection button visible by going to:
Menu > Settings — and enable “Icon to switch front and back cameras”
You will have an icon (camera-like) on the screen. Press the icon to switch cameras. Please note that you may need to calibrate (Calibrate menu option) the wide camera, if you notice some error in the field view.
Q: I have only a couple of primes that I use. How can I setup the app for this?
You edit the Rotation Wheel to contain only the primes you have (by pressing + or – within the yellow pointer-triangle).
If you have different sets of primes you can easily switch between the Packages by a long-press on the menu icon (but be sure you have enabled the Packages feature in the Settings menu).
Today an update was posted for Canon and Nikon ViewFinder app. The main new feature is an auto focus switcher. It is placed in the right bottom corner of the main window and is used to turn on / off the auto focus of the viewfinder.
In general, Magic ViewFinder uses the central area to focus constantly with a moderate speed (non-aggressive AF, as Google describes it). So if you need to shift the focus from the central part of the frame, use AF switch.
NOTE: AF switch may behave in different ways on some Android devices. If you think you see such behavior, please report to me.
This new feature will spill over to other versions, including Universal, very soon.
Also the update 1.8.3 has improved display of non-(16:9) frames, especially in situations where the the lens view is wider than the view of the Android-device camera. Those using the anamorphic setups will appreciate the improvements.
