Record a video

Besides taking photos with your phone, you can also capture your special moments as videos.

To open the camera, press the camera key.

  1. To switch from photo mode to video mode, if necessary, select Switch mode icon.

  2. To start recording, press the camera key.

  3. To zoom in, place a finger on the screen, and slide it up. When the frame includes the area you want to zoom in to, lift your finger. To zoom out a bit, place a finger on the screen, and slide it down. To fully zoom out, slide your finger past the bottom edge of the screen.

    You can also use the volume keys to zoom – you may find it easier to change the zoom level.

  4. To stop recording, press the camera key.

The videos are saved in Gallery. To quickly view the video you've recorded, select Camera roll icon > Play icon. To view the previous photo or video, swipe right.

Tip: You can send your video in a multimedia or mail message. To limit the video size for sending, before recording, select Settings icon > Creative > Resolution, and select a small enough size, such as 360p.

Video tips

To open the camera, press the camera key.

  • For best results, close any open apps before recording.

  • Record to your phone mass memory, if possible.

  • If recording videos to a memory card, for best performance, use a compatible, fast, high-quality microSD card. For 360p and 720p videos, the recommended microSD card class is 4 (32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s)) or higher. For Full HD (1080p) videos, a class 6 (80 Mbit/s (10 MB/s)) memory card is recommended.

    Before first use, back up any important content on the card, then use the phone to format the card, even if the card has previously been formatted or used in a Nokia phone. Formatting deletes all content on the card.

    If the memory card gets slower over time, back up any important content on the card, then use the phone to format the card.
