    Default video camera

    I am looking to buy one of these tablets mainly to video my daughters dancing and then playback the video to her to help her in her training. What is the video quality like when videoing indoors on these tablets.

    I wouldn't spend the money just to use it for a video camera. I would buy an independent video camera because it will be better quality. I know I'm not answering your question because I have never taken a video with mine but figured I would tell you what I thought.

    Yes but an independant video camera doesnt have a large enough screen to replay the video straight away. The advantage of the tablet is you video then immediately replay the performance so as to improve it next time - which can be only minutes later.

    Video quality is more than adequate for your purpose.

    Keep in mind that while a stand alone video camera may not have the largest screen for instant playback they typically have superior zooming capabilities. this will come in handy if you shoudl find yourself seated some distance away from your daughter's performances.
    I think your skills are improving.

    I took a quick video to show you how it looks (there were high school kids walking across the street and didn't want to look like a creep with the camera). I uploaded it to my drop box so just click the link to view it. Its a short video that has me moving the camera back and fourth and holding it still for a few seconds. I will gladly take a longer video but wanted to give you a quick sample. Let me know what you think and if you have trouble viewing it I will try and post it a different way. Thanks.

    Don't worry about it. I am here to help. I will take another video later on and post it up. I am assuming there will be a decent amount of lighting so I will try and get some similar.

    So I took two samples for you. Both inside my living room. One is with only sun light coming thru the window and the other is at night with a ceiling light on. Let me know if you need anymore and if you have trouble viewing.

    Just to say i bought a Nexus 10 and used it at a dance competition today and the quality of the video was excellent and it did exactly what i wanted. My daughter was able to see her performance between rounds.

    Thank you for your help.
