    Find and press the Lumia Camera tile to open the application
    .
    We can see the tile on the right side of the screen on this device. It has a purple background with a white outline of a camera in the middle. If the Lumia Camera tile is not pinned to the home screen, swipe left and find it in the apps menu. Tapping on it will take us into the application. Once the application is loaded, we will need to change the camera to video mode.

    To do that, we need to press the white video camera in a white circle
    .
    This will switch us to video mode. We will need to go to the settings to change the resolution of the video camera. We may want to do this because changing the resolution means reducing the quality of the video recordings. Doing this allows us to create more videos because videos of a lower resolution take up less space on the phone or SD card. Therefore, if we change the resolution, we have the opportunity to make more videos because we can store more data, more information and more video footage onto the phone.

    If we press down on that box, it will bring up our other option, "VGA (640 x 480)
    .
    It's a lower resolution, which means it is a smaller size so that we can store more files. We will press down on the "VGA (640 x 480)" option.

    We can go back by pressing the white arrow in the bottom left-hand corner
    .
    This will bring us back to the camera. We may not be able to tell the difference between the different resolutions, but there is a difference in quality as well as file size.
