Video recording on the iPhone 5C can be accessed by heading to the camera app and swiping your finger from left to right over the shutter key to switch between the ability to capture static and moving images.
The rear 8MP iSight camera is capable of capturing video in full HD, 1080p resolution at 30fps, while the front facing camera has been upgraded to support 720p recording.
As with the camera app you're options here are severely limited, with the option to switch between front and rear cameras and toggle the flash on and off.
If you want to use the flash light while filming you'll need to turn it on before hitting record as there's not option to toggle it once you're running.
When you have pressed record you'll notice an additional shutter button appears in the bottom corner of the screen - pressing this will capture a photo while recording, allowing you to capture special moments in still form as well as in motion.
Video quality is pretty good as long as you keep the iPhone 5C still and don't zoom in, because as soon as you start zooming things get blurry and pixelated.
