Now we're about ready to go ahead and head out. But it's a great way to check the shots before you roll for real. One of the things that I've done that I really like is that, For example, if I just exit out of the app we previously set up the GoPro app to see all of our different cameras. Now in order to do this, I have to switch between the networks. for a second and go to my general wi-fi settings. What you'll see here is that I can see a list of all the wi-fi networks. We'll just flip that over for a second and tap on wi-fi, and you'll see they start to pop up.
So for example, there's redpixel3 which is one of our GoPro cameras. So I can switch to that. It remembers the password from before and it's going to connect. There we go. And now I can switch back to the Gopro app. There it is. We'll choose connect and control. It starts up the preview and I could actually see the shot from inside the car. In fact, when I am ready, I could just actually trigger it, right from the up. Now, while it's recording you can't see the actual recording happening. It can't write to the card, and stream over the network to your tablet, or your phone, but this is really cool.
to your tablet, or your phone, but this is really cool. And if I needed to make any changes to that camera as we were going through these last minute checks, I can just pop up the camera settings, and I can do the things like tweak the field of view. Right now it's on narrow, but let's just see what that looks like in a medium field of view. There we go, I'll choose done. Starts up the preview. I can see that, so if I wanted to see both the driver and the passenger there, I could actually see inside the car. Maybe we did one take on a closeup, and then we reset the camera just by changing its setting.
We don't even have to adjust the rig. We can see both the driver and the passenger. I want to switch back, piece of cake, I'll just tap settings, and I can see the field of view there, and I'll go back to the narrow field of view. There we go. And we'll just close that out. Starts the preview up, takes a second, we can see it there. So let's just tilt that so it's a little easier. And I can actually see right inside the car. That works really well. And when I'm ready if I need to switch to another camera, It's piece of cake. We'll just exit out of the app, go to our WiFi settings, and choose the camera from the list.
There were go. There's one more of our Gopros. You see in fact there's a couple in that list. Switches over, makes the connection. We can go back to the app. It's going to fire up for a second here. I'll connect and control. There we go. And now in fact you can see the camera at the back of the car.
Of course, the crew is right there filming us doing And now in fact you can see the camera at the back of the car. this training, but imagine when the car's on the open road. We can now actually see behind and from inside the car or remotely. I can trigger that and that camera's going to start to record. Of course again, when you start the actual recording the preview is discontinued. So the use of the app is fantastic as you need to make some of those last minute tweaks. Now, speaking of last minute tweaks, let's go ahead and do a final safety check before we take the car out and drive around a little bit on this cold winter day.
