How Good is the iPhone 3GS Video Camera?

One of the new features of the iPhone 3GS is the built-in video camera. Apple’s website promotes the video capability of the new iPhone by saying, “Shoot and edit a mini-masterpiece right on [your] iPhone 3GS”. A mini-masterpiece? How good is the video capability on the 3GS anyways? The technical specifications read: 3 megapixels, autofocus, VGA up to 30 fps with audio and ability to record in widescreen format. Sounds promising… for a cell phone video camera.

A few creative musicians have recently popped up on youtube.com touting their “first professional music video shot entirely on an iPhone 3GS”. I’m not sure it will ever be clear who came out with the “first” 3GS music video, but each video is impressive nonetheless. For your viewing pleasure, we’ve placed the three “first” videos below. Granted the music may not be your cup of tea, but focus on the video quality and you’ll have to admit the 3Gs video camera has made a good first impression.
