The Samsung Galaxy Note has the all-important 30fps 1080p Full HD video recording at its heart, and it works jolly well indeed.
The range of options is less extensive than the standard camera, but nonetheless it's more than enough.
Exposure and white balance can all be calibrated manually to ensure you're getting the best resolution, and touch-to-focus will also alter the brightness of the scene, although this will revert back once you've let go.
A video light is also included for darker scenes, which is a godsend for when you're trying to get the the Samsung Galaxy Note to actually work out what's going on for an...er, art movie.
Fast moving scenes can hurt things a little bit when it comes to autofocus - it could have been a lot smoother and sharper at times in our view.
