Video camera settings overview
The Scene selection feature helps you to quickly set up the camera for common situations using pre-programmed video scenes. Each scene setting is designed to produce the best quality video possible in a specific recording environment.
The Scene selection feature is off and you can shoot videos manually.
Use for shooting videos against soft backgrounds.
Use for videos of landscapes. The camera focuses on distant objects.
When turned on, light sensitivity is increased. Use in poorly lit environments. Videos of fast-moving objects may get blurred. Hold your hand steady, or use a support. Turn off night mode when lighting conditions are good, to improve the video quality.
Use for videos of seaside or lakeside scenes.
Use in bright environments to avoid overexposed videos.
Use for videos of fast-moving objects. Short exposure time minimises motion blurring.
Use for indoor videos in poorly lit environments. This scene picks up indoor background lighting or candlelight. Videos of fast-moving objects may get blurred. Hold your hand steady, or use a support.
You can adjust the video resolution for different file formats.
HD (30 fps)
These settings are only available in Manual capturing mode.
When you select an object by touching it in the viewfinder, the camera tracks it for you.
Use the Smile Shutter™ function to determine what kind of smile the camera reacts to before recording a video.
When recording a video, it can be difficult to hold the device steady. The stabiliser helps you by compensating for small movements of the hand.
Use the video HDR (High-Dynamic Range) setting to record a video against strong back light or in conditions where the contrast is sharp. Video HDR compensates for the loss of detail and produces a picture that is representative of both dark and bright areas.
This setting is only available in Manual capturing mode.
Use the flash light to record videos when lighting conditions are poor or when there is a backlight. The video flash icon is only available on the video camera screen. Note that the video quality can sometimes be better without a light even if lighting conditions are poor.
