Hello Soukaina,

In order to run your two cameras together you will need to connect a cable between them, or use an OptiHub. Once synchronized, the cameras should run together as expected.

For further questions about synchronization through the Camera SDK, you can read the "frame synchronization.txt" and look through the FrameSynchronization sample that is included with the SDK.

I hope this helps.
