Wide angle on iPad for music lesson



i want to use the wide angle camera on my iPad air. Clearly Zoom has access to it since center stage works fine, but how can i use it without center stage?

I need it for my online music lesson as my whole instrument should be visible.

The centre stage is being given to Zoom as the video device.

You can turn off the centre stage and switch between front-facing and self-view camera, but the aspect ratio of the screen will just give you a standard window view, you can not see the "whole stage", I believe this is a limitation of the way apple has set up their cameras.
So, for your use case, I suggest moving the iPad further away and turning off the centre stage. The button is on the top-left of the screen.

Please mark this reply if it solves your question.

thank you for your response. so basically its not possible to use a wide angle in zoom at all? the wide angle camera works fine outside of the zoom app.

unfortunately moving the ipad away isnt optimal since i need to be able to read the displayed sheet music as well
