    I am considering buying an iPhone 4. However I wondered if anyone could advise me about the following:

    1) I understand it is able to record HD video. Is the quality suitable for burning to DVD for playback on a TV?

    2) How many GBs per hour does HD video at full quality, when recorded on the ipHone 4 take up.

    3) How easy is it to transfer video from the iPhone to a mac, for editing in iMovie. Will this still be HD quality?

    4) How long does the battery last if recording HD video on the iPhone? I understand it runs it down very quickly.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    1. yes

    2. not too sure, but trick is to keep your iphone free of too much music
    and apps if you film a lot (also get the hightst gb model you can afford)
    on my 16 gb I have shot around 40 mins fine with out it being free of all other data but i cant be more precise.

    3. easy plugin, l load into iphoto for archiving then this appears inside imovie

    4.Not too bad around an hour, but it does drain.
