I want to make a video. What must I do?

Open the camera App. Either it says "Video" somewhere or you are looking for a camera icon in side view. Tap on the word or symbol. The "trigger" symbol" gets a red dot. Point the camera at the subject you want to film and tap the shutter release button. Video recording starts. When you tap the "Shutter" icon again, the recording stops.

Tip: Move slowly when you record.

How can I watch the movie?

This works the same way as viewing photos. Only the camera app must be in video mode. There is also a tiny image that shows a picture from the recorded video. Tap on it and the first frame of the movie appears on your screen. Tap on the "Triangle" briefly and the video starts playing. When you tap on the movie again, a timeline and a "Pause" icon will appear. Use the timeline to quickly get to any part of the video. Tapping the "Pause" icon pauses the video playback.
