    So finally a video camera app is out on the market, pretty decent. Promises of bug fix and overall update in the next 5 days in good to know. Question is, has anyone else gotten it and it makes ur G1 sound kinda like a computer. Let me explain, when im phone is on, sense i downloaded the app, i can hear my phone running, kinda like how u can hear ur computer run, it makes wierd little sounds like its computing something, kinda weird i know. Kinda bugs me but i'll survive, anyone else having this problem though?

    No I havent had that problem but the problem I had was that it only worked once then would force close every time thereafter.. :thinking: Also the original camera app would no longer work so i uninstalled and still didnt work so I had to reset my phone.. :( But the one time it worked it did what it was supposed to :) but I think he/she just made the app to do a photo burst anyone else??

    It's pretty cool in theory, but a few nitpicks personally: It doesn't save out to a video, it saves to a folder of pictures... how are you supposed to play it back besides in the application?

    Seems kind of rushed. And like mentioned, I've had a few force closes, it seems like it only works for a few seconds, maybe 20 at most.

    I have not installed this app, but I have a similar sounding app called "Continous Shoot" ... it takes 30 pictures as frames and then processes them afterward. You can view each frame or in continous run but also viewing is only within the app.

    The app had none to the side-effects described above ...

    I use continuous shot...I found that it works great if you turn the rendering to just 5 shots, instead of 30.

    No, not interested in continuous shoot. I can wait for real video, my Canon is better, this would just be a "nice to have" feature on the G1.

    It also messes up your camera app causing it to force close on opening. I had to reset to factory default.

    Is does force close a bunch, and the pop up for update available, is crazy.

    It takes ok video, but as mentioned no way to offload to a PC.

    Believe I will uninstall it now, that I learned it is just a FAST camera reel.

    Anyone else also noticed that it seems like the jpegs it outputs to are corrupt? Can someone confirm?

    The developer did warn that some of the pics would be corrupted. I appears to be an unavoidable side-effect of whatever he did to make video into pictures. Usually there are relatively unusable shots in a set. If you're seeing more than 1:10, you probably have some other problem.
