Question
What are Digital Lenses

Where does it apply?
MAX

Answer

Digital lenses (formerly referred to as FOV) let you choose how much of the scene is captured by your camera.

The different lenses also affect the zoom level and fisheye effect in your shot. For Video mode, Max SuperView captures the largest field of view while Narrow captures the smallest.

Each shooting mode has specific lens options
