One of the features RIM snuck into BlackBerry 6 was improving the video camera options along with the regular camera. While the camera has some easy to select scene modes the video camera hides them in the options menu for some reason. It also has image stabilization off by default on mine. I found the close up scene was really good for taking a video of another BlackBerry screen or a product you are going to put on eBay. The image stabilization is also a nice touch and sometimes results in better videos at events like marathons.
Thanks to nah.uhh for pointing out the tip!
