In this mode, long sequences of low-resolution (160 x 120 pixels) images are captured in very rapid succession (at 0.1 or 0.2 second intervals). The resulting movies can be played back directly on the camera's screen, or downloaded as composite images to a host computer, where they can be assembled back into a movie via software.
A feature available on many digital still cameras that enables users to record short movies that can be transferred to computer for storage, or viewed on television with a special connector cable.

Recording time varies based upon camera model and the size of the memory card being used.
Allows photographers to record digital video clips, sometimes with sound.
