    Hey folks,

    I don't know if this has already been posted here, I couldn't find it if it has, but here is a cool video sample recorded on an Epic 4G in 720P.

    It might not wow everyone, but it looks better than the samples taken by Engadget. The audio pickup is awesome! And the video is so smooth I didn't know the video was being taken by the Epic until he mentioned it.

    I'm really looking forward to this device!

    The sound quality is great but the lighting in the room wasn't that great. All in all, it was pretty good with the lighting conditions. I can't wait to see some nature video samples.

    Yeah, I think it was really good for the lighting that was available. Plus, even with direct sunlight from behind, you could still see the host clearly without him becoming a black blob as you would normally expect from a cell captured video.

    My fears of low-quality EVO-like HD recording due the Epic's limited on-board storage (thus using the external SD card for saving) have been fully put to rest. :)

    Given that the write-speed of the external SD card isn't affecting the Epic's HD recording quality, I wonder why the EVO records such crappy HD video..

    Yeah. I don't get it either. Also, consumers are going to be tricked into thinking the Evo's camera is better because it is 8 MP. We know which camera is better but the average consumer will be clueless.

    I think the video looks great, and I'm very impressed with how it handled the bursts of sunshine.

    I fear sounding too much like dietcoke here, but,...

    If this video is to believed, then what is up with Engadget's Epic 4g review regarding the video recording?
    I will say, the video samples Engadget posted are far too jittery for my liking. I'm really interested in seeing the video performance first hand. Aug 31st can't come soon enough!

    Samsung makes real digital cameras. HTC doesnt. :) They also make the sensors that go into their digital cameras. They are a vertically integrated company, something you cant say about a start-up like HTC. Samsung has been around for over 60 years.

    We all know that Engadget is licking the loo loo of Apple for their paycheck. It doesnt surprise me one bit. I always tell people to take these online reviews with a grain of salt. Use them as a guidance but not as a definitive answer to all things.

    Gotta make sure to watch that youtube clip in 720p rather than 360. It makes a difference as I found out (the hard way lol)

    Stabilization is pretty good, could be better, but def better than some other highend phones.

    The quality of the video looks great. My only beef is that both of those videos look very jittery - like there's a constant but subtle bounce to the entire picture. Can they do some sort of image stabilization to steady that out a bit?

    It doesn't matter how the video quality is, the gps doesn't work and that's all that matters



    :p

    I'm thinking that second video was a little shaky because he had too much coffee. The videos look down right awesome compared to the Evo, and I'm very impressed. Although the FPS can always be better, I think this is a wonderful start for the Epic. Perhaps, like the Evo, they will tweak it even further with the Froyo release.

    Meh, my old Vibrant did the same- 720p recording. Not that big a deal, especially since the Galaxy S phones camera's have severe white balance issues. You'll see if you ever end up buying an Epic.

    Nothing to write home about.

    I am really liking the pictures in the reviews, looks like it will be a good camera on this phone.
