    Manfrotto Element(tripod)

    Shooting is always fun. However,you must use any stable tripod to try this new method.

    Rear lens on the side of OLED

    You stand in front of the rear lens at the first shot and then, step forward quickly before the second shot. That's all, quite simple. I recommend you to set 2 sec for both timers. I don't need the first timer. However, we have no choice for the time being.
    **I've sent the feedback for the next update.

    Disappering person

    Thanos snapped again? No way! You should watch carefully before shooting. I believe we can mitigate the annoying results when the side at the 90 degrees from lens is clear.

    ***We should know the classical workaround is removing any artifacts with Photoshop or GIMP.

    Conclusion
