Nokia C6-01 review: Video

Although some Nokia technical specs list the Nokia C6-01's video capture as VGA, a quick visit to the video settings identifies that it is actually capable of HD 720p video.

Other things to note are that video stabilisation and geo-tagging are provided in video capture mode along with the ability to manually set white balance, colour tone and set for low light or night recording, although these can all be left in auto mode.

Images and video taken on the Nokia C6-01 are good enough for just about any casual use, with the only limitations being the capacity of the users microSD card and the lack of physical zoom, which can be partially mitigated by image cropping since few users will need to blow their pictures up to sizes that would cause pixilation.

Disappointingly, unlike the Nokia C7 and Nokia N8, there is no pre-installed video editor on the Nokia C6-01. Our frustration is that there must have been a decision to remove this function, since the C6-01 is the first Symbian^3 device to not have one.
