On some camera models, Arsenal allows you to start and stop video through the app. Video support depends entirely on each camera’s technical limitations.

To see if video is supported on your camera, switch to Video Mode in the app, and tap the shutter button. If it is not supported, you will receive a notification that reads “Arsenal does not currently support video on this camera. x” If you do not see this message your camera is supported.
