    That’s not true. The main camera video has only got one fixed focus, so it’s rubbish at close up … even though as you switch from macro camera to video the shot is initially in focus… the video mode changes to defaulted out of focus range…. how annoying. If you want depth of field and close up work use the front facing camera with the lower resolution lens and chip
