    While my band was on tour in Texas between Abilene and Fort Worth, we saw this massive fire and decided to explore. When I loaded the footage up I was amazed by the quality of the iPhone 4! I was also glad to have been able to catch this great interview with someone who narrowly escaped death. We were able to give him some water and AC and he told us the whole story.

    Check it out...

    I like the Daniel Johnston t-shirt in the backseat. :p
    I'm a fan of the quality as well, although my videos look pale in comparison, to me they're excellent.
    And you should post this as well in the sticky on top of the forums.

    My first college girlfriend got me the soundtrack to the movie Kid's as a birthday present, it wasn't until a couple years ago when I rented "The Devil in Daniel Johnston" that his songs came back to me. One of those "Hey I know this song!" moments.

    Yeah, we have the original footage in 720p. I'm not sure why it didn't upload. I'll have to look into it.

    Whoo

    I guess I should be saying something positive right now, but man I would not want that guys face against my iPhone! Lol.

    Seemed like a pretty cool guy though. He shouldn't lose his job, for one, and two, you can be commended for your generosity. That said, I thought you were pulling his leg in the beginning!

    ios4 does not support 720p direct uploads to youtube. You have to put it on the computer then upload it.

    Didn't the old guy in the backseat notice that alien sitting next to him?

    I thought YouTube didn't allow videos longer than 10 minutes if you're not a partner or have special privileges. Do you?

    Yeah, One-Eyed Doll is a YouTube partner. We mainly did it so that we could upload long videos.

    Iphone 4 has the best camera...
    Not even HTC EVO, Droid X or Captivate can beat this.
