The built-in cameras on your mobile phones are getting more and more advanced each year, with some being able to record 4K or even 8K. And as you upgrade your phone every 2-3 years, the specs of those built-in cameras are still way more advanced than your ordinary 2 Megapixel webcam! So why let it go to waste?
Why not turn your unused/old mobile phones in to a high spec webcam that can do 1080p (at 30 or 60 fps). It’s perfect for last minute emergencies when your main camera is broken/faulty, or use this solution as an additional webcam for interviews, unboxings and more. In this article we will show you how to set up your mobile phone (both iPhone and Android) as a webcam using FREE to download software.
