Sony Xperia Tipo review

The video camera on the Sony Xperia Tipo largely mirrors the stills photo camera in both features and performance - which is to say that it's a mixed bag at best, but not too bad for the price.

It has exactly the same scene modes as the photo camera (Night, Sports, and Beach and Snow), and the same options for adjusting exposure value, white balance and metering.

Shooting in VGA, the results are mediocre, as you might expect.
