Hello there,

I've recieved the Mi 11 Ultra on Saturday and having quite a bit of trouble when trying to access the different lenses through 3rd party apps like open camera, droidcam obs and iriun webcam.

I need access to the ultra wide lens with 4K support but currently it seems that only the front and main lens are exposed to apps.

My Firmware is 12.0.6 (Europe/Germany)

Is this something that has been fixed with the 12.5 update or are the lenses still missing?

Thanks!

I think it depends on the application, e.g. for Open Camera user reviews explicitly state that multi-lens support is a lacking feature. I just tried with 12.6 Weekly, Open Camera indeed only accesses the main sensor.
But for example *no-support-for-this-app-on-this-forum* has no problem accessing all lenses (and this was also the case on 12.5 or 12.0.x)....

This is not app related, since I am taking about the camera2 API exposure of the additional lenses. Open camera, Iriun webcam, droidcam obs - they support all lenses that are exposed to the API.
I can switch through all lenses with open camera on a p30 pro just fine, since huawai exposed the cameras to the API
