Shooting Video on the Xoom

As I mention earlier in this chapter, the Xoom’s rear-facing 5-megapixel camera can record HD video. This section goes over this procedure.

The video software uses the same controls as the photo software (see the preceding section), plus a few extra ones that I cover in this section.

To open the video software:

  1. Open the Camera app by completing the steps in “To open the photo software” earlier in this chapter.
  2. Move the slider in the bottom-right corner of the screen from the Photo icon to the Video icon, as shown in circle-a.jpg.

To set video options:

  1. Touch the Video Quality icon circle-b.jpg to set video quality.

    Your choices are High, Low, and YouTube.

  2. Touch the Time Lapse Interval icon circle-c.jpg to set time-lapse intervals (how often a frame is captured).

To record video:

  1. Touch the red Record button circle-d.jpg.

    As you record, the elapsed time appears in the top-right corner of the screen circle-gray-d.jpg.

  2. Touch the red and white Stop Record button circle-e.jpg.

To play back your video:

  1. Touch the thumbnail image in the bottom-left corner of the screen circle-gray-d.jpg to go to the video player circle-f.jpg.
  2. Use the player’s controls circle-gray-f.jpg to play your video.

    The controls are simple. Touch the right-facing arrow to start the video and the pause symbol to stop or pause the video.
