Advantages of a Dual Lens Camera
The dual lens camera is a type of security camera with two lenses that capture the same scene from different perspectives. The two images are then stitched together to provide a higher resolution and greater depth of field.
Reolink Duo is a waterproof dual-lens security camera with several models to suit how you want to use it. It offers 24/7 continuous and scheduled recording, motion detection with alerts and is available in PoE, wired Wi-Fi or battery and 4G.
1. Enhanced Image Quality
When two lenses work together to capture an image they can achieve superior quality over a single lens camera. In addition to the increased resolution and enhanced depth of field, the dual lens can help to minimize distortion, providing a more natural looking image.
This is a great benefit for those who are worried about their car being stolen as the dual lens will be able to record the driver and their license plate from all angles of the vehicle. The camera will also help in identifying the person who stole the car, so they can be caught.
The dual lens will also be able to provide better low-light performance. This is because one lens will be able to pick up color while the other will focus on picking up details, giving you much more detailed photos in less light.
This is the reason why most of the flagship Smartphones come with dual camera setup. The dual camera allows the smartphones to take stunning pictures in low-light conditions. The smartphones can also use both lenses to capture images in different focal lengths, giving them the ability to zoom without compromising on the picture quality.
2. Enhanced Detail
Using two lenses can help with image detail. One lens will capture color information and the other will focus on brightness. The images are then combined into a single photo with enhanced color and improved detail. This feature is especially helpful in low-light conditions.
Dual Lens Cameras are also used in security cameras to provide better Dual Lens Camera video footage. The dual lenses help to improve the quality of the video by capturing more detailed images. They are also able to capture images at higher speeds.
Video Stitching Technology is used to combine the wide-angle and telephoto video shots in order to create a seamless panoramic view. This allows the user to monitor a larger area and keep track of any activity going on around their home or business. This allows for more comprehensive protection and can help prevent crime before it happens.
3. Enhanced Color
The other advantage is that dual lens cameras can offer richer and more realistic colors. In order to achieve this, one camera captures the brightness of the scene while the other takes the color information. Then the two images are merged by EZVIZ’s proprietary algorithm, resulting in vivid and lifelike pictures.
The first time we saw a dual-lens camera with real depth analysis was in HTC’s One M8 back in 2016. Since then, the technology has seen more adoption and it is now available in smartphones like the Huawei and Honor flagships.
Reolink’s Duo is the latest dual-lens camera with this advanced feature and it’s a good choice for security and home use. It features a wide-angle and a telephoto lens that can be automatically switched to zoom on a detected object. The camera has a number of other useful features, including auto-tracking and person/vehicle detection. It also supports 24/7 continuous recording and can store videos locally on a microSD card. It’s available in PoE, wired Wi-Fi, and battery-powered versions. The latter two models reduce the amount of cabling you need to run indoors.
4. Enhanced Zoom
Dual camera apps are smartphone applications that take advantage of the additional sensor found on some devices to enable a wide array of features. The first such device was HTC’s EVO 3D in 2011, but it was the 2016 LG G5 that really started the trend, using a second lens for ultra-wide angle photography.
Since then, many phones have adopted dual cameras. The iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 8 both use dual-lens camera to offer optical zoom capabilities (although this isn’t as great as a real telephoto zoom lens). A more sophisticated approach is taken by the OnePlus 5 with its Smart Capture software, which averages frames from the main and secondary lenses and stitches them together. This isn’t ideal, however, as image stitching often introduces artefacts and doesn’t always deliver the pixelation benefits of optical zoom.
In a dual lens camera, the motorized zoom lens is replaced by a board lens. This allows the camera to switch between lenses at super-fast speed, delivering an enhanced zoom experience and improving AI functions such as face detection and face capturing.
5. Enhanced Flash
The dual lens camera has a special feature called enhanced flash. This technology allows the camera to capture photos with clearer images in low light conditions. The camera can also produce more accurate colors compared to single-lens cameras.
In addition, the dual lens camera can produce higher quality close-up shots by focusing on objects using a telephoto lens. This is a great benefit for anyone who loves to take Instagram-worthy pictures with their smartphones.
Another feature of the dual lens camera is its ability to create more realistic Dual Lens Camera effects like the shallow depth of field that was previously only available with expensive digital SLR cameras. The iPhone 7 Plus dual lens camera also allows users to blur the background of a picture and focus on the subject.
Dual-lens cameras are being used in many different types of devices, including security cameras. This Reolink duo 2 PTZ security camera features a 180° wide angle view, 6MP super HD video resolution, person and vehicle detection, flexible power options (battery or solar), and advanced night vision capabilities.
