It actually seems to be better than our HTC Desire HD, at least in comparative tests - which you wouldn't have predicted given the naming of the handsets.

The options are roughly similar to photography: you can mess with things like exposure or add an overlay to change the style of video.

The video we shot in lighter and darker scenes was pretty consistent - at night the frame rate obviously drops to make sure the maximum amount of light is let in, but overall it was more than acceptable.
