Global Variable

AVCaptureDeviceTypeBuiltInTelephotoCamera

A built-in camera device with a longer focal length than a wide-angle camera.

Declaration

const AVCaptureDeviceType AVCaptureDeviceTypeBuiltInTelephotoCamera;

Discussion

Devices of this type are not necessarily “telephoto” by a traditional photography definition; rather, this type merely distinguishes the narrower-angle from the wider-angle device on hardware equipped with cameras of both types. To determine the actual focal length of a camera device, examine the AVCaptureDeviceFormat objects in the device’s formats array.
