Title
(EN) Automatic camera selection capturing intended subjects in an image
Abstract
(EN)

Methods for capturing intended subjects in an image are disclosed. Various embodiments may include determining a first quantity of a bilateral body part of individuals visible in a first preview image obtained by a first camera-lens combination having a first field of view, and automatically selecting one of a plurality of camera-lens combinations to use in capturing an image based on the first quantity of the bilateral body part of individuals visible in the first preview image. Some embodiments may include selecting a wide-angle camera-lens combination in response to the determined quantity of the bilateral body part of individuals visible in a first preview image is odd. Some embodiments may include automatically switching back to a standard or default camera-lens combination if an individual added in a wide-angle image is separated from the individuals visible in the first preview image by a predetermined threshold distance or distance ratio.
