The video capture module 11 can further include images of the user in the captured footage as well (e.g., as a narrator that can be seen).

[0018] While recording video with the front or rear camera, the user can switch to the other camera without stopping recording by swiping right to left on the touch screen 21 in live capture view. Video output is one continuous clip, even if cameras are switched during recording.

[0019] A user has the ability to record both front and rear camera video input simultaneously. An output file allows user to simply tap (or click) to select which recorded feed they would like to maximize.

[0020] FIG. 2A shows a functional block diagram of the capture module 11, according to a one embodiment. The capture module 11 allows a user to record video from multiple cameras on the electronic device 10 (e.g., front facing camera 15 and rear facing camera 16). In one embodiment, the capture module 11 allows the user to switch between the front camera 15 and rear camera 16 while continuing to record video.

[0021] In one example, the user first selects the rear camera 16 via the capture module 11 to capture video. While the capture continues, the user selects (activates) the front camera 15 via the capture module 11 to capture video (i.e., switches from capturing from the rear camera 16 to capturing from the front camera 15 only).

[0022] The capture module 11 continues to record video during the camera switch and captures video from the front camera 15, instead of the rear camera 16. The capture module 11 provides the user with the ability (e.g., via control icons on the touch screen 21) to select a camera from which to capture video, and to switch between the cameras as desired while continuing capturing video from the selected camera. In one embodiment, capturing video further includes recording the captured video.

[0023] As shown in FIG. 2A, the camera source capture output displayed on the touch screen 21 comprises a video clip from the rear camera 16, then from the front camera 15, and then back to the rear camera 16 again as the user switches between the cameras, without breaks and including continuous sound.

Screenshot 2 shows a user selection action, such as a gesture on the touch screen 21, as swiping right to left, as indicated by the arrow 21A, to switch from the first camera to a second camera on the device 10.

[0025] Screenshot 3 illustrates video output on touch screen 21 indicating camera switches, using a cube rotation effect when switching from the video 21B from the first camera to the video 21C from the second camera. A left side of the touch screen 21 shows video from the first camera with freeze frame during camera switching transition, and a right side of the screen shows video from the second camera with live capture view (moving picture).

[0026] Screenshot 4 illustrates playback of recorded video in the event that a camera switch took place during recording (no simultaneous recording). Images 21D depict playback from front camera recording, images 21E depict playback from rear camera recording after camera switch gesture, and images 21F depicts playback from front camera recording after camera switch gesture is used once again.

[0027] For example, screenshot 4 shows a captured video example, wherein images 21D from a rear camera relate to "Bob is going surfing in the sunset... it looks so much fun". Images 21E from a front camera relate to "We're going to stay back home at the house". Images 21F relate to "Let's hope he catches a wave!" from the rear camera again.

[0028] In another implementation, the user first selects the rear camera for recording video therefrom, and while the recording continues, the user selects (activates) the front camera (i.e., switches from recording from the front camera only to recording from both the rear camera and front camera).

[0029] The capture module 11 continues to record video and now records video from the front camera and the rear camera at the same time. The capture module 11 provides the user with the ability (e.g., via control icons on the display screen 21) to select both cameras from which to record, and to switch between the cameras as desired. The capture comprises simultaneous recording of the video from both cameras.

[0030] According to an embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4A, the camera source capture output displayed on the touch screen 21 comprises a video clip from the rear camera 16 and front camera 15 in split screen mode.

[0031] FIG. 4B shows the camera source output on the touch screen 21 in more detail. According to an embodiment, as shown in FIG. 4A, the camera source capture output displayed on the touch screen 21 comprises a video clip from the rear camera 16 and front camera 15 in split screen mode. FIG. 4B shows the camera source output on the touch screen 21 in more detail.

[0032] The user can further capture and record input from a first camera and a second camera simultaneously, by tapping an icon (e.g., thumbnail) in live view on the touch screen 21 which contains the feed from a non-active camera.

[0033] In another implementation, output displayed on the touch screen 21 comprises a video clip that is split screen whenever simultaneous recording takes place (with continuous sound). An output file comprises a format that allows the viewer to tap and select which camera recorded content the viewer would like to bring into full screen view.

[0034] FIG. 5 shows video output of simultaneous front and rear camera capture/recording, according to an embodiment. Screenshot 1 on touch screen 21 illustrates live video capture view of the front camera feed 21, including a thumbnail view 21R of the rear camera feed. Screenshot 2 illustrates a user tap 21 T on thumbnail 21R on the touch screen 21 to record rear camera feed content (i.e., record from both front and rear cameras).

[0035] Screenshot 3 illustrates a user tap again to stop recording rear camera feed content. Screenshot 4 illustrates a user swipe 21S on the touch screen 21 to change the location of the rear camera feed thumbnail 21R. Screenshot 5 shows the location of the thumbnail 21 R changed on the touch screen 21 R. The thumbnails 21G at the bottom of each of the screen shots 1-3, indicate content being recorded to storage.
