    How many hours of recording would we be able to get on a 16gb iPhone 4? How many still photos?

    The video clip of 1080p hot air balloon footage that's been floating around is 35 seconds and 38 MB. That's 8.6Mbps. So you could cram a maximum of 4 hours of video into a 16GB iPhone 4S.

    Photos are 2.1MB each. So 16GB would accomodate a max of about 7500 photos.

    I don't think that saying the 35 second video is 38mb is an accurate depiction of what the recording size will be.

    For all we know, the video could be compressed in an editor.

    There's only so much compression you can do to a 1080p video file and still be able to call it 1080p. 8Mbps is a pretty decent bit rate for high quality 1080p.

    Thanks, seems like 16gb is more than I can handle.

    38mb for 35 seconds of 1080p ?? am i delusional or does no one know anything about videos these days? lol compressed simply because its for online purposes no one in the hell of nature would put a raw video of 35 seconds itl be much bigger....the fact that the video was edited as iv mentioned millions of times before in the other thread doesnt give a true representation of anything for the camera stats of this phone, until people have it hands on no one can speculate...

    Looks like no one had an answer to this, and I found this thread on a Google search.
    Anyways, from some Google-fu, I found an answer to the OP's question:
    178.95 MB/Min for 1080p video. So go ahead and take that into consideration, including your installed apps and other data.
    Those 8 megapixel photos are roughly going to come out at 2-3 MB a piece, FYI.
