Real-world iPhone 4 video performance

As many of you know, yesterday was Independence Day in the US, and I figured it was a perfect time to really put the iPhone 4 video feature through its paces. I decided to take some videos of the fireworks and their musical accompaniment (for which we can thank the San Francisco Symphony). The darkness, rapid changes in illumination, fast movement, and explosion noises were pretty much as unfavorable conditions as one can use, but the performance was surprisingly good.

An iPhone-compatible video is available after the jump, as well as a download link for the full 720p video. Pretty impressive for a cellphone, huh?
