    i personally dont have froyo yet but ive been watching some videos on youtube and yeah, they are impressive.

    but i have two questions

    1) how does it compare to new iphones camera quality? ive seen some samples on youtube as well, and i think that iphone wins this one
    2) hm as i stated in an earlier topic, whenever recording videos with desire (at least 2.1) you can see that the image is kinda "floating". what i mean by that is that the image looks like it was filmed with shaky hands even if you lay the phone on the ground; as soon as some movement occurs it looks like the image is floating or waving... is that issue gone with the new froyo update, or does it still persists?

    if youre not sure what im talking about here, just see this video YouTube - HTC Desire Video Sample (moving object)

    and then see this one

    YouTube - iPhone 4 sample video: Thriller

    image seems waaaay more stable (stabilized?)

    heres maybe even a better example of what im talking about

    YouTube - HTC Desire - HD 720p - test2

    and honestly, i prefer desire over iphone because 1) i already own an ipog touch which i dont use anymore since i got desire 2) android is a system for me... its more web-ish than iphone...

    the only thing i miss though is: applications which SUCK compared to iphone, especially given the HUGE possibilities that hardware offers

    FPS depends mostly on the lighting conditions, and the SD card. Photography 101 - If you have less light, you need to expose each frame longer to get the correct exposure. It's more complicated than that in reality, but that's the basic idea.

    So try the Desire's video outside on a nice sunny day, with a class 6 microSD card in, and see if it's any better than testing indoors. It should be. Not that I'm saying the FPS couldn't use some improvement. :p

    i know that, im not talking about fps... fps is not the issue, eg in car video - theres nothing wrong with fps but the picture is still shaking!

    1. iphone 4 has a better camera. not apple fanboy or hater, im neutral.
    2. your Desire will take better pictures and videos if you take the back cover off.
    3. video is same as shaky as with 2.1, only with added 720p and led light option.

    The picture is shaking because his hands are moving around while he holds the phone, and the low FPS is making the motion seem choppy and sudden.

    I'm seeing around 18-21fps with my Desire using 720HD. This is OK, but I was hoping for 30fps.
