I USED MY Lumia 1520 to record our activities during St Patrick's Day 2015 and the HD video recording alongside HQ audio recording consumed more than 10 MB of storage for every minute I recorded--all to produce the YouTube clip below the break. I need to clean out space on the handset and perhaps get a larger micro SD card.
When the Lumia 1520 has less than 4 GB available of its main storage, certain processes slow down. Anything that connects to an index runs slower--all my photos, videos and music pause before displaying. My email clients don't work smoothly either. OneNote will not launch. And I cannot depend upon Lumia Storyteller to perform.
The six minute clip I rendered on the Microsoft Surface is a combination of HD video recorded on the Lumia 1520 along with an interview with the narrator (7yo Mia) as she reviewed the footage.
It took less than 15 minutes with the narrator to get the audio that I then used as a track inside Camtasia to produce the final cut.
I need snappy service close to hand in order to make more of these clips in the future so I will free up several gigabytes of space.
