The new HTC Rhyme is one of the latest handsets to be released by the South Korean manufacturer. This model is aimed at the mid range market yet still manages to offer some excellent multi media features. Previously we took at look at the superb camera features that are incorporated on this new model and now we take a look at the video capture facility.
The HTC Rhyme records video footage in a resolution of 720P. This means that each frame features 720 progressively scanned horizontal lines which is the minimum standard needed to be classified as High Definition. The footage is captured in the MP4 format at a frame rate of 21 per second which means the final result is very smooth and easy to watch. Just like the camera feature the video camera uses a brand new interface that is much easier to use than what can be found on some earlier devices. The main record button is located on the right hand side of the screen together with a number of other options. By having these all positioned to the side of the screen means that it keeps your hands away from the main bulk of the display which in turn means you can see more of the scene that you are recording. The video capture uses an auto focus but this locks the moment you start recording so it is worth making sure everything looks clear before you start to record.

There are a number of customisable options available on the HTC Rhyme which have some interesting effects on your final recorded footage. Perhaps the most impressive of these is the excellent new slow motion record. Although this mode reduces the resolution of the recording the final result looks great with the speed of the footage reduced by 50 percent. There are some other great effects that can be applied to your recording including Sepia and and a Gray Scale option that gives the film an interesting vintage look. Editing facilities for your final product are fairly limited although you do have the ability to trim sections from the beginning and the end of the recording. This is great if you have pressed the record button a little early or left it recording for longer than you need to. Video footage can consume a large volume of storage space so it is reassuring to see that the Rhyme not only incorporates 4GB of internal storage capacity and also features a micro SD card slot that can accept card sizes up to 32GB. This means that the phone has a potential total storage of 36GB.
We loved the camera features on the HTC Rhyme and the video facilities are equally as impressive. The HD footage looks superb and some excellent effects mean you can hours of fun with this area of the phone.
