    Possible to just tap the Camera tile and go to video mode straight away with just one tap?

    I am asking this, because I find the video and photo mode switch is just way too slow.

    I don't believe there is. Maybe a third party solution but nothing native that I can see.

    You'll have to settle for 2 taps. Camera button then video button. I know, i know it's tuff. But there's nothing that can be done. My fingers are bleeding nubs. I'm going back to ios!!

    I do not know how you can do it.
    However there is a chance that it can be done in the future if you write your idea on microsofts user voice
