FiLMiC has launched a new and very cool app named DoubleTake. It’s is a free app that lets you shoot with two different iPhone cameras at the same time. You can choose between all available cameras on your device and simultaneously shoot two different videos with the same device.
DoubleTake is available on recent iPhone models from XS and 11 series. You can use DoubleTake’s camera picker to visualize all available cameras for your device and decide how to frame your shot and which cameras to use. You can choose between different rear cameras (the ultra wide, wide, and telephoto) and the front camera. In other words, you can combine the shots from two rear cameras, or from one rear and one selfie camera.
The app’s interface lets you see what you capture with both cameras at the same time through Picture in Picture (PiP) window. Alternatively, you can use the split-screen view. You can also decide if you want to record your videos as separate files, or if you want one composite video that includes the PiP window animated as you see it on the screen.
You can choose between three different frame rates of your videos: 24fps, 25fps, and 30fps, Each of them shoots 1080p video at high bitrate, and note that 4K is not supported. Composited PiP or separate discreet video files are recorded as .h264 .mov files. They’re saved to DoubleTake’s internal library which supports batch export to the Camera Roll.
Here’s a tutorial to help you get started with DoubleTake:
DoubleTake can be a great tool for different content creators who use their phones to shoot. I believe that you can find it useful for different applications such as vlogging, filmmaking, or interviews, to name just a few. The downside is that, for now, it’s only available for iPhone, If you remember FiLMiC‘s other recent app Firstlight, it was also only for iOS when it was first launched. Still, Firstlight is now also available for Android, so I believe that Android users will be able to get the DoubleTake app soon, too.
