The recent Windows 10 Mobile Build 14342 offers fixes for a series of annoying issues. One in particular was the video recording bug in the Lumia 435, 532, 535, and 540. Microsoft has not yet provided more details about the type of other issues this fix solves, therefore we can conclude Lumia phone owners should not encounter any more bugs when recording videos with their devices.

Judging by the reports of Windows 10 Lumia owners, the video recording issues range from resolution problems to users actually not being able to record anything with their phones:

i own a Lumia 640 xl . […] Recently when i tried to shoot a video nothing happened  and nothing is saved in the gallery . If i press hold the the button on screen in the Lumia camera app its supposed to record the video , but all that happens is that the recorded time increases but the screen will be frozen {no real time view is what i mean} and when i take my finger off the button , the screen will go back to normal . but the video wont be recorded . If try rercording the proper way by pressing the video camera icon in the app and press the record button , this time it will show what the camera is pointing at but the recorded time will be 00:00  and wont save.

This is not the first time users have complained about video recording issues on Windows phones: Last year, Microsoft rolled out an update aimed specifically at fixing video recording issues for Lumia devices. Seems like a bit of deja vu.

Speaking of video recording, Microsoft recently rolled out an interesting feature for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile that allows users to pause video recording. The ability to pause the recording while shooting a video will certainly be a welcome addition since this is a standard feature on Android.

Nevertheless, Microsoft still has a lot of work to do before catching up with the competition’s phone camera capabilities.
