Video recording on the BlackBerry Z10 is accessed through the camera app, where you'll need to switch to video mode using the icon in the top right corner.
The rear facing camera on the Z10 is capable of capturing footage at full HD 1080p resolution, while the front facing snapper can grab 720p video.
With the rear camera you can choose whether to record in 720p or 1080p, and like the camera mode there's a very limited selection on options.
Image stabilisation is a welcome addition which keeps your movies smooth, while over in scene modes you have a selection of just two – night and beach or snow.
An added benefit with the video recorder on the Z10 is when you've started to record (by pressing anywhere on the screen) you can then toggle the single LED light on and off.
This is great if you're moving between light and dark areas during filming, or if you just fancy giving your friend a bit of a strobe light while he performs an embarrassingly poor rendition of Gangnam Style.
You can also use the 5x digital zoom while recording but as with pictures in camera mode video quality is greatly reduced if you decide to hone in on the action.
Video quality is pretty good and easy to watch on the handset's display and you'll see from the video clip below it doesn't look too shoddy on a larger screen either.
