    I did, in both the still camera and the video mode, and was very pleasantly impressed. If someone could tell me how to post photos here, I would show a couple.

    No, I kind of wished I did, but I was at a pool party with my kids and the odds of it ending up in the pool or getting wet was high so I left it home. considering what I saw online, the camera produced some nice results.

    I used mine! It's just a 3G though so probably not as impressive as others. Still, I was surprised by the quality especially since fireworks are difficult with any camera. :)

    Only my video, and its too large a file to attach for MR. However, I took some pictures of my dinner on the 5th with my girlfriend for our 11 month anniversary. :) I can post those if anyone actually cares about it. :p

    The videos I took for my dad who lives in Wisconsin.

    The smaller one uploaded fine from my phone. :)

    The larger one is too big to even be put in an email (13 minutes long > 25MB) but I dont know how to cut the video in half to send to him. :(

    Yes, please pubish some shots. I don't have an iPhone, but I am curious how the pictures turned out. (Maybe this is gonna convince me to get one.) :)

    Fantastic steak and salmon dinner.
    Greatest dessert ever! (Canoli and teramisu (sp?))
    Restaurant.
    Oh, and calamari and fried mozzerella and brushetta.

    Yeah, this dinner broke the bank. lol But it was sooo worth it.

    And yeah, it was 4th of July weekend so it counts. :p

    I took a short video of some from a far distance, came out as good as I'd expect for how far I was from the home fireworks.

    I am too busy to upload the video, but I have some pics from my blog.

    By the way, these are just snap and shoot photos. Wasn't looking for anything special.

    Video of Atlanta Fireworks (Lenox)

    Here's a link to the last minute or so of the Lenox Mall fireworks in Atlanta. (supposedly the biggest show in the SE).

    I was pleasantly surprised with the video as well as audio. (You can hear the drunk shouting behind me quite clearly:D)

    The drunk behind you sounds like Barney from The Simpsons.

    I've taken some shots of fireworks on my 1st Gen and always was surprised at the nice photos I got.

    No, but I really wish I had. I had my real camera with me last time, so this year I thought I would just sit back and enjoy rather than photographing, but it wouldn't have taken much to snap a few.
