    I am thinking about getting the 3Gs and have some questions.

    1. The video is recording in h.264?
    2. What is the bit rate?
    3. Can you adjust its quality?
    4. Does it support uploading to youtube or other host site?

    2. Not Sure

    4. Only YouTube from the Built-In Youtube App

    You can also upload your videos to iphoto and send them to whatever service you'd like after that.

    If you sync via iPhoto I believe you can get the uncompressed version. You can also publish to MobileMe if you have an account, and send as an MMS and also email.

    1. Codecs: AAC, H.264
    2. Total bit rate: 782 (taken from info on a video)
    3. Can't adjust but when I upload it compresses.
    4. Not at the moment but there's a free app called "Pixelpipe" which allows uploads to myspace, facebook, dailymotion, etc.

    Hope that helps.

    I believe the actual original recording is done at about 3.5mbit, it is then reduced down to about what you quoted if uploaded directly from phone.

    EDITED: Nevermind. You're right! It's 3.5mbit/sec. I still think that's over kill.

    For some reason that program puts a space instead of a comma.

    Ok, so to answer the OP:

    1. Yes. H.264 + AAC in a .mov container.
    2. ~3.6mbps VBR
    3. Nope.
    4. Yes, you can upload to YouTube via the "share" feature in the Photos app. Or you can use and app called "Pixelpipe" which allows uploads to myspace, facebook, dailymotion, etc.

    I think you're right because i took this from an email i sent to someone. I'm on my work computer so i don't sync my phone to this computer.

    Thx for the answers. It looks like I will go for the 32GB iphone since the video files are pretty big, e.g. 3.6mbps... One more question: can you export the recorded video from the iphone to computer for editing via itunes?

    You get the videos off your phone just like you get photos off your phone. I don't know how to do either in Windows, but in OS X, you just use iPhoto or Image Capture.

    I believe you can import via iPhoto on a Mac, or just drag and drop from the device on Windows Explorer.

    And the video files aren't THAT large. I believe Gizmodo said that they are about 2GB per hour, with one hour being the maximum consecutive recording time (although you can just start a new recording once that one ends).

    Yes, it is. I designed the pool myself. You like it? The coolest part though is definitely my dog Jack. Anybody got any Animal Planet hookups?
