As usual with embeds, feel free to click through to YouTube for maximum (in this case 1080p) resolution if you want to:
I shot at 1080p, by the way, in order to give the stabilisation more of a chance and to give the digital zoom more headroom. I'll shoot at 4K in future tests, perhaps, depending on what Microsoft changes in the monthly feature updates. There's no reason why the Snapdragon 888 chipset shouldn't produce much better quality and performance here. It's just a matter of extra coding and quality control. Issues like the '2x' zoom control actually producing around 4x digital zoom are rookie programming errors.
Comments welcome. Video capture is merely 'average', though I'd argue that at £1400 or so and with a flagship processor, capture needs to be significantly better than 'average'. What do you think? Can a productivity-centric device be forgiven a disappointing video capture experience?
