    For those of you with an iPhone 4, open your camera app. Compare the zoom for pictures vs video. Why does video appear to be more zoomed in? It doesn't detract from quality, does it?

    Yes it is, isn't it? I just hope it doesn't detract from the video quality.

    Because the resolution of iPhone 4 video is longer than the screen so
    It has to blow it up a bit.

    ProTip: if you double tap the screen in movie mode it zooms in and out.
