Let’s talk about video production… I thought you might want to check this out if you are looking to buy a pocket HD camera like the Creative Vado HD or the new Flip Slide HD to shoot your videoblogs and YouTube videos.
Here is the first ever video shot using an iPhone 4 showing its 720p HD capabilities:
As you can see the quality is pretty nice and it’s another good reason to get the new iPhone 4.
I’ve always been an android guy and I’m currently using a Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 phone running android 1.6.
An android 2.1 update for the X10 is scheduled for Q3 of 2010 that will allow us to shoot video in 720p (the Xperia X10 has a 8 megapixel camera and shoots video in WVGA resolution now, which is pretty cool).
Also, Google Nexus One users can now shoot video in 720p using an easy firmware hack.
Here is a 720p video test on the Nexus One:
And now a HD test for the Flip Slide HD pocket camera:
So… What should you get?
Pocket HD Video Camera vs iPhone 4 / Android Cameras
If you are looking for quality I would say go for the pocket cameras. It will not only save you battery on your phone but you also get those sexy integrated usb ports that you can use to easily transfer files to your computer without messing with itunes and stuff like that.
External Mic Input
You can’t use an external microphone on the iPhone 4 and that’s a big problem for me as audio quality is one of the keys to a good online video.
I can’t wait to see how the X10 does in this field but if I can’t use an external mic input I think I’ll go for a pocket camera, at least they are much cheaper than the phones!
So, what would you choose? I personally think that the flip slide hd one looks best…
