Switching between cameras while recording video

When I had an Xperia SP smartphone I could switch between cameras while recording video. It was very convenient for me. But in Z3 Compact the camera switch button disappears when I start recording. I tried other camera apps, but with the same result. Does anyone know how to solve such a problem?

Re: Switching between cameras while recording video

I haven't seen this option on my Xperias, you should contact your local Xperia Care

Hi Solar

 

There is no feature like this that i'm aware of  but try looking on the Play Store to see if there are any third party apps that can do this.

Unfortunately, i haven't found any third party app with this function. I tried about 10 different cameras, but when I started recording, the camera switch button disappeared.

I'm afraid there isn't any app that can help me. It's so strange that an older smartphone had such a good feature and the newest one doesn't.
