Webcam, from a very non-essential hardware feature in laptops, has become one of the critical features during Work From Home in the years 2020 and 2021. Hopefully, this will not continue in 2022, but nevertheless, the corporates are talking about a hybrid working model and seem like Work From Home has become permanent. Whether you are using it for meetings, conducting live streaming and vlogging, let me share my experiences with you with my experiences on setting up your smartphone as a webcam. Basically, there are few ways to show your handsome or pretty face. They are: 1. Using a webcam and plug it into your computer directly. 2.

The rear camera set up a 12-megapixel main sensor with f1.8 and Dual Pixel binding and OIS.  8-megapixel for telephoto lens and 12-megapixel for the ultrawide lens.   Here are some sample shots on my Instagram profile.
