Videos

Recorded in 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 11.4 Mb/s

Recorded in 1728×1296 30fps with an overall bit rate of 11.0 Mb/s

The above 1296p video looks very weird. Think best to stick with 1080p.

Rear cam recorded in 720×480 30fps with an overall bit rate of 3,672 kb/s


Note – You can connect to the Shadow 3 via wifi on your phone using FinalCam app which I forgot to test out.
