Samsung wave iii pr image 5

The video camera is capable of 720p shooting at 30 frames a second – and we'd expect nothing less from a quality smartphone.

You can see from this video that the camera has trouble with light and shade, and even though we are panning quite slowly things aren't silky smooth

So, we tried a couple of experiments holding the phone still and shooting moving footage instead. We got pretty smooth images this time, but notice again how washed out the colours are. This is probably partly due to the dull days on which we were videoing, to be fair.
