There are slightly less options to play with in the video recorder on the Nokia Lumia 920, but the phone can still capture 1080p, full HD footage.

Accessed via the camera application the video recorder sports the same layout as its still image equivalent, with the ability to toggle the dual-LED light and zoom levels before hitting record – however both are locked while recording.

Open up the video settings menu and you can adjust the video quality, however you only get the choice of 720p or 1080p – no substandard filming allowed here then.

You can also dabble with the white balance and switch to film with the front-facing camera, but that's pretty much your lot on the Lumia 920.

Sadly the annoying touch to capture which appeared in the camera mode rears its ugly head here as well, leading to accidental recordings, and ending of recordings, leaving us infuriated after a while.

Video results are pleasing, although not quite as stunning as the still images, but you can happily watch them back on the 4.5-inch display, or on the larger screen of a computer or TV.
