Platform and device compatibility

Updated

Camo offers a broad range of features across an even broader set of devices. This can mean that support for a particular feature may vary depending on the device being used and the platform Camo Studio is running on. Below, you'll find an overview of the main factors to keep in mind when trying Camo with your particular setup.

If you run into any issues, or find that this information doesn't seem to apply in your case, please check the troubleshooting doc or contact us so that we can help.

Webcams, built-in cameras, connected DSLRs and other USB devices

When using a dedicated camera that is connected to your computer via USB, or a built-in camera like ones found in many laptops, Camo Studio will rely on a standardised protocol to communicate with and receive video from the device. This means that Camo can work with a wide variety of devices, but also restricts what it can do to what is allowed by the protocol.

Available functionality can also be restricted by which features of the protocol a particular device supports. For example, some cameras might support many different kinds of image adjustments, even zoom and pan, whereas others will not. Camo attempts to minimise these through software where possible.

If you are planning to try Camo with a webcam, built-in camera, connected DSLR or other USB camera device, please keep the following in mind:

  • Supported image adjustments may vary from device to device. In many cases, Camo will emulate controls in software, but where that is not possible the control will be disabled.
  • Audio pass-through and advanced controls are not supported
  • Stabilisation is currently not supported
  • On macOS, the Portrait, Privacy Blur, Replace, and Spotlight image enhancement modes are supported on a limited set of devices
  • Augmented Reality (AR) modes are not supported

Camo for Android

If you're using your Android device with Camo, please keep the following in mind:

  • A frame rate of 60 fps is only supported on Google Pixel phones, due to manufacturer restrictions
  • Smart zoom is not currently supported
  • Auto framing (with or without zoom) is not currently supported
  • Stabilisation is not currently supported
  • The Replace, Spotlight, and Filter image enhancements are not currently supported
  • Vibrance image adjustment is not currently supported

Camo for iOS

Camo supports Portrait Mode and additional AR modes on any iPhone or iPad with an A12 processor or higher. Note that this is different from Apple's Portrait Mode within the Camera app, which works on some slightly older devices.

Support for super high resolutions, like 4K, is limited to devices with an A14 or M1 processor and later.

Support for higher video frame rates, above 30 fps and up to 60 fps, is also limited to devices with an A13 or M1 processor and later.

You can use the table below to find your device and check compatibility.
