Apple has so far only said it would take photos. It could in theory take video since the CPU is probably fast for a phone, but you may be forced into taking MPEG-4 clips. I can't imagine live H.264 encoding is realistic.

By all means, read through the report and let know what it says.

Or is it true that Brits don't know how to read which is why they expect Americans to do it for them?

Apple also asked the FCC to seal some of the documents until after the iPhone is released. Until then, everything is just silly speculation.

I've wondered about this capability also. Rather retrograde to not offer video these days.

I have only managed to find a few pages of the report, none of which point to camera capabilities let alone video so if you have that by all means please share

As for what format.. I dont think anyone is expecting H264.

Basic H263 is fine.

Even if the video is shit, it will do. If it doesn't do video, that would be a big no no.

The worst video right now has to be qcif. QVGA and CIF are good and VGA is the best.

Im not expecting 30fps but at the least Apple should put in QVGA/CIF.

As its being released next month for you guys in the states shouldnt there be some reviews now or are apple not going to let anyone review it until after its out?

No review iPhones will be sent out until the shipping date is announced, and that's the earliest they would send them out. Most likely reviewers will get their hands on one when the rest of us do.

I'm sure a couple reviewers (Mossberg, Pogue) will receive them before it's shipped, but their mouths will be shut until the release date.

Why is that? There are a number of cheap video cameras that encode in h.264, like this one. And that one does 720p. I imagine the iphone could do VGA h.264, which is the iTunes Store native format.

I could be way of but H264 encoding is a bigger strain on the battery (i think). But H263 fine anyway.

Sersiously Apple dont need VGA 30fps video or anything that high, just something in the middle like QVGA/CIF 15fps. On such a big screen im not sure how videos would look if they were qcif. And if the same rule applies that all videos have to be watched in widescreen then putting qcif would just be even sillier.

VGA 30fps can fill up 2gb in 30 min

Whats that got to do with anything. In any case it wont be vga 30fps, I think 15fps is possible but again with such a small lens I cant imagine anything higher than CIF.

I went to the iphone add at apple.com and it said in the fine.

...p to 5 hours of battery life is based on H.264 1.5-Mbps video at 640-by-480 resolution combined with 128-Kbps audio....

I think the 640 by 480 resolution your referring to is the ratio of the H264 being watched. Not captured
