Apple iPad Pro 2021, which was officially launched today (April 20) on the Apple event, has a new 12MP front facing camera that can automatically shift and enlarge when you are making a video call, making sure you are always in the middle of the frame when making a video call ,
Features, known as the center stage, use the field of view of 122 degrees of cameras, along with engine learning capabilities provided by the M1 chip, to recognize people in the frame and keep them in view, even when they move, even when they move around when they move around call.
Similar features can be found on the Amazon Echo Show 10, Facebook portal, and several Motorola smartphones, which supports ready mode for multitasking which allows you to connect the phone to the monitor and access various functions including enhanced video calling. ,
This is a clear camera that automatically pan and zoom becomes a trend but are they really useful or creepy features that are just another way for your gadget to follow your movements?

Skeptics at first …
I admit that I’m skeptical about how well the camera that follows you around the room really does the job. Like most of us, the number of video calls that I made has increased since the global pandemic, because this is a great way to stay in touch with loved ones when you can’t meet face to face.
But that means I also experience a video call trap – awkward pause, an example of talking to each other, forgetting to open yourself when talking, and a bad internet connection causes the screen to freeze. Of course the automatic panning and zooming will only add headaches? I was expecting a better movement that only made it worse for everyone in a call.
However, when using Amazon Echo shows 10 for video calls, where the entire view of the rotating and camera pan and zoom, I was surprised. Panning movements and zooming cameras are smooth and soft, and while the camera is positioned again when we make a big movement, like walking opposite the room, it doesn’t move to accommodate small movements like tilting our heads or stretching us. Arm, make sure the recipient of the video call doesn’t feel they are in the middle of the action film.
In addition, when one person walked away during a call, the camera did not follow when others were still talking – it made the caller left in the middle of the frame.
I have high hopes that the Truedepth Apple camera can match, if not exceed, the smooth running of the camera on Echo shows 10. For some of these it might do it wrong on the creepy side, but in my eyes, the experience of course exceeded the problem I have with the camera followed me , so it’s a feature that I will use – actually, I can’t wait to see if it was introduced on the iPhone 13.
