Like the stills mode, the video recording options on the Panasonic Eluga are abundant. Top shooting is done in 720p HD (1,280 x 720) and there is autofocus technology on board so you don't have to worry about your subjects being shot in blurryvision.

The digital zoom is available for videos, but only before shooting begins, and there are 11 preset recording modes so you should be able to find one for your scenario.

The shooting modes from the stills side of the camera are all onboard for video capture.

As well as the 720p HD option, you can also shoot in qHD, VGA or QVGA. If you want to record a quick video to email to somebody, there is a preset function that caps the length of the video to keep the file size down.

We found the video quality to be pretty good, even when viewed back on a 1080p Full HD big screen TV with minimal blurring. Sound recording isn't too bad either.
