What is Videon?

With this application you can also take photos while the video is recording. This is a feature that you cannot find with other iPhone applications.
The cost of Videon is much less than most users would expect. Unfortunately there is no free version or a free trial version that you can use.

However, the resolution settings are only available when you use the rear camera because the hardware for the front camera has already maxed put the resolution. While you set the resolution you should also look at the frame rate. Changing the frame rate will offer you better video recordings in different light conditions. The default setting is the 24-30 frames per second selection.
The video quality and the sound recordings can also be altered. The video quality can be lowered to make the recording smaller and to save space on your phone. The recording can be turned off completely or you can disable one of the microphones. The iPhone offers two microphones and you can choose to use both or only one.
There are a number of other settings that you should consider. The video stabilising option can be enabled or disabled. You can also turn the lock focus, crosshair and geotagging on and off.
