    U probably all heard of the Zii EGG and its fancy "HD camera" well, it isnt as fancy as u think...

    lets find the number of megapixels in an HD picture (1 MP = 1 million pixels)
    for 1080p Widescreen (1920 pixels X 1080 pixels) = 2,073,600 pixels or about 2MP, but isnt that the MP of the original iPhone

    ?? Yes it is...

    for 720p Widescreen (1280 x 720) = 921,600 pixels or just a mere 0.9 MP

    Creative only mentions "HD Camera" so it has to be at least 0.9MP, maybe more, but they probably want to earn as much moneys as possible
    and a 0.3MP VGA camera (same as the Lame DSi camera)

    so even if the iPhone 1G camera is included, it has enough chops for 1080p FULL HD pictures (with the right software)


    this is just a reminder of what advertising does to your head

    Bottom line: 0.9 MP (lame) is enough to be an HD camera; the Zii has a 1.3 MP camera
    so if u think the iPhone 1G camera is lame, then... Creative Zii EGG camera is absolute trash

    There's a difference between HD video cameras and still cameras that shoot at an HD resolution.

    no, i remember seeing a $200 HD camcorder with a 2MP camera, it shot HD, but not like high quality (semi bad lighting and stuff)

    also, Creative didnt say it had an HD video camera

    1mp is not the same as 1920 x 1080 full HD

    the quality is VERY clear in the difference, also a HD camcorder can have a 2megapixel camera but the picture wouldn't necessarily be a HD picture

    Lol the difference is how much clearer and better these photos will be be, because of how well it's processor will be able to handle it.

    i said that 0.9 MP is 720p HD and 2MP is 1080p Full HD

    and that 2 MP camcorder recorded 720p

    and i never said that it recorded good, its kinda like playing a video game with min spec, works but sucks at it


    also, iPhone 3G S has the chops to record 720p HD videos

    everyone has this idea that the more megapixels a camera has, the better picture it takes. this is COMPLETELY false. the quality of the image sensor and lens combined determine the quality of the photograph. the only reason still cameras have MP specs over 3MP is solely for digital zoom purposes. with this new "stem cell" mumbo jumbo, i'm sure the thing will be able to process a decent photo. keep in mind, they're not selling you a camera, they're selling you a media player.

    but more MP is better, kinda for digital zoom, but mainly since more higher res and better details, your pretty much comparing HD to Über HD"
