I decided to capture this “changing of the guard” with both iPhones to better illustrate the differences in camera capabilities. The first part was recorded with the iPhone 3GS (640×480), and the second part with the iPhone 4 (1280×720).
I was trying to do something fancy with the camera at the tail end of the video, so I (inadvertently) held it in such a way that the microphone was covered. This is why the tail end looks good but sounds muffled. This is not a shortcoming in the device so much as it’s a shortcoming in how my wrist twists. 😉
