First Images and HD Video Footage From iPhone 4



With the first iPhone 4s being delivered today, Apple fans are anxious to learn more about the device as users begin to get their hands on it. One of the major new features in iPhone 4 is the rear camera's ability to shoot high-definition 720p video, and while some sample footage popped up in the Czech Republic last week, people are clamoring for more.

One user who received his iPhone 4 today has put together a blog post with some sample images and HD video shot with the new device.




One of the videos taken by the user has been made available both on YouTube and in the raw video format, and we're mirroring the raw video here. [Link to Raw Video, 26.9 MB]

Is it too much to ask to hold the phone horizontally when shooting video?

Is that the best this guy could do for a "test video"?

Also, what's with the coffee/booze problem?

Talk about having the shakes.

Man, do you know how many seconds it would take to do that?

Like...one.

So why don't you just forget about it, ok?

iPhone 4 Reception

I have patiently waited to purchase an iPhone hoping and waiting that it would come to Verizon. I have waited for three years and quite frankly I am done waiting. My only concern has been the reception. I was curious if those that have already received their iPhone's have noticed an improvement in reception due to the antennas being moved to the exterior of the phone. Let me know.

You know I would never post a video or pictures on here for others to see. You think you're doing some folks a favor by sharing but all you get is a bunch of complainers and whiners. The members of this group never fail to amaze me. Sometimes I think the average age must be about 16.

Resolution looks good in HD. The video seems to have a lot of frame stuttering. I don't think that's its the user. Looks like rolling shutter to an extent.

No matter how high tech your cell phone is, the video taken will ALWAYS be jumpy/stuttery.

The small tiny sensors just cant work fast enough.

But the iPhone 4 isnt a SLR, its a cell phone, and it shoots suprisingly amazing videos and photos, atleast thats possible

Ther quality looks pretty good. there is a bit of rolling shutter going on with the video but all in all it's pretty impressive.

The photo is overexposed (probably wasn't metered correctly with the tap to focus), however it is sharp. The grain seems under control to an extent (for a cell phone). Will be more than enough for most general photography in good conditions.

I honestly feel the camera and video are the two biggest features of the new device. I'll take much more pictures with it than ever with this level of quality.

The new iPhone looks like it has a lot of stabilizing software built in. Looks quite steady to me for an excited iPhone owner holding such a light thing.

it's really amazing that the phone in my pocket will have such better quality than the $800 video camera my dad filmed our vacations with throughout the 90s and 00s.

What are your computers?

I saved that test file from a few days back and it jumped a bit on my work PC but played fine on my Mac Pro.

HD H.264 requires a fair bit of horsepower (or a dedicated decoding chip) to play back smoothly.
