    Hi everybody.


    Does anybody has REALLY tested 720p recording with some class 6 card?

    What frame rate have you achieved?

    ...or, the rumors are not true? you achieve horrible framerate even with an speedy card?


    Thanks in advance.
    Sorry my english. :-(

    Yes I have tested it
    Standard froyo the image was choppy and baggy
    Flashed to leedroid and it was improved but still lowish frame rate
    I read a workaround and sure enough I get between 22 - 28 fps

    Open camera in photo mode and change the ISO to 800. Then go to video and reenable 720p recording
    It works

    I have a Samsung 8GB class 4 which when tested shows up as a class 6 - My 720p recordings have a recurring 'freeze' issue whilst filming, it pauses for a fraction of a second then continues, makes it unusable.

    Having read some threads on here it seems like the speed of the card is the usual culprit but I'm hesitent to buy a class 6 when this Samsung class 4 is meant to be running at class 6 and still has the problem.

    Do you have the freezing issue Peter ?

    run it in a media player on windows, it will usually tell you the fps

    In my opinion, in short, 720p is pointless!

    Yes, you can record in 720p but its very choppy. I have an unlocked unbranded up to date Desire. Once restored to Factory settings, with my Class 6 card (that has been speed tested), the video was just shameless.

    It should not have been included in the FroYo update since its pointless. If you really really want 720p recording, I wouldnt suggest relying on this handset. Otherwise this handset is great ! :)

    Hi
    No it doesn't appear to freeze up solid if thats what you mean??

    But i havent had chance to make a clip and try it on media player to see what FPS im getting.

    Ah k. Mine pauses for a split second then continues, making the recording have a jerk effect every few seconds.

    Strangley it doesn't do it every time though - another thing that makes me nervous about shelling out

    Thanks for that. Might have to consider a faster card then.

    it depends on the lighting you're recording in.

    in fine daylight it looks really good. however, indoor lighting is a mostly miss for as the low(ish) frame rate of the camera is exposed.

    This was shot on my class 2 card if anyone's interested.

    Haven't tried it in the dark tbh so can't comment on that,but it's perfectly acceptable in good light at least.
