Your friends are never going to believe what you did. The only way to prove it to them is with that video you took. Rate this thread to express how videos shot on the Xiaomi Mi 10 come out. A higher rating indicates that videos are smooth (and not choppy) and that auto-focus works very well, and that the camera adjusts quickly to different lighting conditions while recording.

Then, drop a comment if you have anything to add!

I have never seen better video recordings than on the Mi 10 so far. 4K @60 fps is gorgeous in terms of sharpness, colors & artifact handling.
The video bitrate @4K is at 38 Mbps.
At 8K it has insane 104 Mbps.
The stabilisation is also remarkable.
I wonder what the Samsung S20 devices are capable of?

could you try testing if HDR is enabled on mi 10 pro? try shooting a video of sunset or very high contrast scene, if you can try, plz provide a comparison between non hdr phone?

Question to Mi 10 owners - how would you rate 4k60fps quality?
In some samples on youtube, I saw that 4k60 isn't fluid and drops some frames. The same it was on mi 8, but using gcam 4k60fps works quite well - much better than native cam app. Would be interesting to hear if somebody uses Filmic Pro / Mcpro24fps on Mi 10 to comment if there's some video quality increase and stability using 3rd party apps?

Video quality is actually one of the best I have ever seen on an android phone (iPhone is the king of video in my opinion) at least on the main sensor (the wide angle is very, very dark and it can't do 4k60 on native camera, only 4k30 or 1080p60) . I'm on Miui.eu beta and, at least for me, 4K60 is very fluid. But is important to say we don't have electronic image stabilization at 60fps (at any resolution) so the video is gonna be a little shaky using only optical stabilization.

Filmic pro is incapable of using the wide angle or the macro lenses, only the main one (mi9 can use all of them with the last updates of Filmic Pro), but it can do 4k60 and 1080p120. You can enable OIS, EIS or even EIS+OIS on Filmic, but EIS seems to be doing nothing actually even if you enable it. Apparently it does not works yet. I appreciate the manual controls Filmic gives you, but since Mi10 already have a manual mode for video and other advanced options like a very good LOG mode, the only real benefit of using filmic is the higher bitrate, except if you want really manual precise controls.

Feel free to ask any other question. Hope I helped.

Thanks xLeonix,
Glad for your answer!
Interesting to know about the sensors availability on Filmic Pro. For Mi Note 10, I send request to devs through the app: information -> version x.xx.x (click) -> and press contact us (after that you will be guided to email, the app will generate metadata.json file and please write to FilmicPro devs to look up for possibility of enabling additional sensors. Thanks to Filmic Pro team they helped me and with latest update gave additional (ultrawide/tele) sensors option to use with Filmic Pro. Hope this would be with Mi 10's ultrawide camera too!
For 1080p/60 and 4K60, have you tried to enable electronic stabilisation through GCAM app (urnyx and burial mods)? On my wife's Mi 8 4K60 works stabilised with OIS/EIS via gcam. EIS works interestingly, but if there's not much camera movement, I would say the quality is fine. Also can use much higher bitrate without loss of quality (native camera's app bitrate is equal for 30/60fps).
Also would be interesting to see a comment from a person, who also tried the mcpro24fps on Mi 10 - does it let to use ultrawide camera, and availability of 4K60.

Answering your questions, yeah, I have tried a couple Gcam mods for photo and video (specially for night sight on front facing and ultra wide lenses, since Mi10 doesn't let you use might mode on front facing camera. It didn't let you use it on ultra wide neither, but xiaomi added night mode on ultra wide with an update).

At the moment, I have installed Urnyx and Nikita gcam mods. Urnyx surprisingly let me record 4K60 on the ultra wide (can't do that on native camera) but with no stabilization of any kind. And it freezes if I try to enable 60fps on the main sensor. Nikita let me actually use the main sensor at 4K 60 with EIS but it isn't even half as good as the native one, It's only a little better than using OIS only. Nikita by the way freezes when I try to use ultra wide sensor.

About mcpro24fps, there's not much to say. It can do 4k 30 on the main camera with OIS, EIS or both OIS+EIS. It can do 1080p120fps too, but for some reason it won't let me do 4K60 in any way on main camera. Mcpro24fps can use wide angle and macro lenses without any problem, but it can't do 4K60 on ultra wide, only 4k30 . Surprisingly mcpro24fps let me set the ultra wide sensor to 120fps at 720p, but it is really noisy (unusable) and the field of view seems to be cropped so it almost match the main sensor. So there's no use for it. It can also do 720p 120fps on the front camera. That's all I can say about mcpro24fps based on my testing.

If you have any other question, feel free to ask. Hope I helped! :D

That was really helpful, thanks xLeonix. Quite surprised to see you use all the video recording apps as well!
Interesting that with Urnyx you can record with ultrawide! Nice!

    By the way, they just added support for the Macro and Ultra wide lenses on Filmic Pro's lastest update.
