Well, Recording video to SD card generates a jumpy Video. So, I told device to record videos to the Phone instead of SD Card, and then recorded another video. Then tried to tell the Lumia to copy the video to the SD card, but the option was nowhere to be found. So I took the SD card out, and plugged into PC, the video that was supposed to be on the phone, was recorded to the SD card after i told selected record to phone??? Strange. Anyway, video was still choppy.
Then removed SD card completely, and turned phone back on. Took new video, and then plugged into pc, and copied video to PC. IT was very Good quality and no jumpy issues.
Plugged SD card back in to 822, and turned back on. Located the video in the camera app, and was looking for an optiont to save/share the to the SD card. NO option exists.
Appears as though the record the SD card is an issue if quality is a concern. SD card is a Class 10 Sandisk card.
And it appears as though there is no way to save videos from the phone to a SD card.

I've been having this same exact issue with my Lumia 822. Even if I select to save new videos to the phone storage, they're still choppy. The only fix is to physically remove the SD card or to soft-remove it via Settings. Even after re-mounting the SD card (via restart) there's no option to copy the video from phone storage to the SD card. In fact the Camera Roll doesn't even let me select any video files. I have to connect it to my computer, copy it over and then delete it from phone storage to reclaim the space.

Recording in 1080p with a Sandisk class 10 ultra+uhs1. Class 6 should work. Even class 4 does provide 32mbit/s and the lumia only records with 20 or something.
The clips are fluid but sometimes the camera app crashes. If the app crashed the only way to watch the clip is with help of the PC. The file is corrupted and showing a "time jump".
Example of clips with my 820:

Most times when recording to the SD card, the camera app crashes after ending the video and then only after rebooting and waiting for a several minutes the video appears in the camera roll. Playback is jumpy on both the phone and when playing on my computer.
I'm going to try with a Class 10 today and see if that helps. However, considering the OP is having the same issue with a Class 10, I'm a little doubtful this will resolve the issue.

Could also be shady cards...I've seen more than my fair share of cards sent back because of bad build quality. I've always been an ADATA fan over SanDisk, but that's just me. Never had an issue.
Also, what capacity do the cards being used have? I've yet to try the SanDisk 64 gig cards so couldn't speak on them.

I might be able to provide a little insight here as a class 10 should be all you need
I have not been able to test this myself, but I would try formatting the card in a pc as exFAT, with at least 2048K allocation unit size.
This will give a lot less read / write overhead due to reading larger chunks of data per allocation unit. The downside effect to this though is that each file you put on the card will consume at least 2 megabytes. You wouldn't lose a lot here from video / audio, but if you had a lot of documents on the card it would't be using the space as efficiently.
exFAT is relatively new, I dont know if it works on WP8 or not, and I dont have an SD card slot to test it on my 920, but it is worth a shot. Otherwise, your best / fastest bet would be to format using the largest allocation unit size you can go on FAT32.

Inserted a Class 10, took a four minute video in 1080p, camera crashed when stopping the recording, and had to restart the phone and wait for it to show up in Camera Roll. After an initial glitch about a second after the recording started, playback was fine.
Recorded another video for only three seconds, stopped the recording, camera crashed, had to restart the phone and wait for it to show in up in Camera Roll. Playback was fine.
Recorded another four minute video and all worked well.
Maybe I'll try getting a UHS-1 card next.

Well, this issue is still causing me a problem. Recorded a new video, and instead of recording to the phone, it recorded to the sd card, even though the settings are set to record to phone???? Anyone have a clue why this is happening? It worked a few days ago after i rebooted phone. But for some reason, the phone decided to start recording to SD card again. Another choppy video.

One thing I just discovered. The storage settings are misleading.
"Store new music+videos on" doesn't apply to recorded videos. Probably applies to videos downloaded.
"Store new pictures on" seems to apply to pictures and recorded videos.

I don't think it's the phone. I spent several hours at the Microsoft Store with their phone tech trying to figure out what's going on (but on a Lumia 810). It looks like the SanDisk 64GB microSD (part # SDSDQUA-064G-A11A) card is at issue.
I did everything I could think of to get the SD card to work. "Quick" and "Long" formats, format the card with different allocation unit sizes, delete the partition, recreate the partition, you name it, I think I did it.
Other microSD cards work just fine in the phone. We even found a lower class SD card (class 6 I think) that worked, and was able to write 720p and 1080p video without issue. I just returned my SanDisk microSD card to where I bought it. I'm now on the look out for deal on a Kingston 64GB microSD card to try out.Guz

Has anyone had any luck with any 64GB microSDXC card? I just cancelled my Amazon order of my Sandisk card after reading all this.
Even if you ARE having good recording with your card and it's not 64GB, let us know the type of card.
This is kind of a bummer. My 822 is coming on Wed - was so looking forward to loading a bunch of movies on there.
UPDATE: Check out this thread ==> Nokia Support Discussions - Nokia Lumia 810 64GB MicroSDHC - Nokia Support Discussions
If you don't want to click, here is what was interesting from the thread:
I have a Lumia 820. Bought a 32GB Class 10 Sandisk SD card. Problems from the word go - freezing / locking when trying to access / sync with computer. No problem wit the card (checked on other systems). After such a long time talking with various Nokia personnel: THeLumia 820 can only support MU 22 to MU 44. In other word old slow class 4 maximum cards! What a joke. Another Nokia person told me they were rushing out a firmware update to reslove the issue. So, at the moment I have a 'phon in which I cannot load a 'modern' fast SD card.
Any suggestion would be better than those I have so far had from Nokia.
Not sure I really believe that the only cards are the old Nokia branded class 4's. I think I'll just hold off on any microSD card until more concrete info is available.

A Patriot 32GB Class 4 (part # PSF32GMCSDHC43P) card, has issues and creates jumpy videos. Which is expected because it's a Class 4 card. (I had one of these lying around in drawer).Guz
