    Can someone please tell me why the new iphone doesn't have a camcorder??

    It has a good camera (2.0 Megapixels), but why can it take pictures but not videos?

    No need to start flaming him. Most phones nowadays have the ability to record videos and he was wondering why the iPhone didnt have this feature.

    @MJeto7- The iPhone doesnt have a camcorder no, but if you jailbreak there are many applications that let you record videos at around 5fps.

    The 3G iPhone's camera supports third-party applications, so developers are likely to make an application for this, and it will be released in the App Store.

    I just think it stupid to even put a cam in a phone. Phones are made to call ppl not to take pic that what cam are made for. And most phones with camcorders have the crappiest video quality any ways why not get a nice camcorder with excellent video quality

    Apple improved many things; but also didn't change some things. For example, the camera could have been upgraded to something better than 2 megapixels.

    even so, you would have thought apple would have put it as a basic addition to the iphone
