Plz tell me coverage area covered by a mobile front camera during video call on mobile. Is it captures an object situated besides the chatting person & mobile at a 2meter distance? If smartphone is of samsung, then I mean to ask, suppose A & B (A is also walking slowly while on video call) are doing video calling. And A's friend is standing at 2 meter on the right side of A. Whether B will be able to see A's friend parallely with A on his video chat screen (at B's location).

I'm trying to understand your question... I think you're asking about the "field of vision" that the iSight camera has on your Mac? The field of vision for example with my 2013 27" iMac camera at 2 meters is actually quite good. If the lighting is bright enough, the field of vision will be at least one meter on either side of the object in front of the camera.

Maybe. Maybe not. That depends on the angle; any obstructions in the way (like the person doing the chatting); perhaps the size of the object; and so on.

And size of the person taking up the FOV . .

background & surrounding light regarding video call on mobile

Suppose A is doing video call on mobile with B. And A's friend is present at 1 to 1.5 meter distance from A.
If A's friend present in poor lighting, then whether B will be able to see A's friend with A(on B's mobile screen)?


Next situation, suppose A and A's friend both are in slowly moving condition, and A's friend is in average lighting, whether B will be able to see A's friend on B's mobile screen. And if A's mobile screen size is 6 inch long.

Charlie, I took a different slant on this. I thought the OP was talking about a video call on a mobile device and wanted to know about FOV, depth of view etc from the front camera whilst making the call?? Maybe not?

Perhaps the OP can clarify this for us?

FOV = field of view.

Honestly, the best way to figure out what this is for the conditions that you're in is to simply test it.

yes, talking was about a video call, but i don't know about FOV & depth of view.....
what is OP?
I did not post the same question twice, both are interrelated, but different.... on moving condition as well as lighting conditions.....

It's hard to answer this question without knowing anything about the context. The distance from the camera, lighting and any obstructions will all affect what the FOV is.
