    Why do we even need this proof?

    The Apple site says "Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio"

    And according to the wikipedia page on 720p:

    "720p is the shorthand name for a category of HDTV video modes having a resolution of 1280×720 and a progressive scan."

    Thankyou for correcting us!

    again most of us have no idea and we openly admit that. Since 960 x 720 is technically 720p, most of us were just assuming that would be it. Hopefull this Apple 'Expert' is correct. Thanks again

    Apple makes it very clear on their website that 960 x 720 only applies to still images. The sensor captures 1280 x 720, but they wanted to support the standard 4:3 aspect ratio for still photos, so they cropped in the smallest way possible to achieve this.

    Thanks for the info. I wrote a thread here about why the 0.7 megapixel camera may not be that bad and there were a few questions on why it can capture 720p video if the camera is only 0.7 megapixels. I'm going to link to this thread along with a brief explanation of what you said there, if thats ok with you.

    This thing is going to dominate the Flip camera.

    I think 'rape' is a more accurate word.
