Video on the N95

The maximum quality for video on the Nokia N95 is 640x480 30 fps.

It's a lot better than what I used to be shooting, 320x240 15fps

I think the photos and videos are excellent and have been using the N95 to shoot lots of video.

The format is mp4 which makes editing in FCP take longer than if I was capturing DV from my GL/2.

The audio/video seems out of sync in FCP's Viewer window, but after it hits the Timeline and I render all is well... I'm wondering if this is the case with all mp4 video in FCP.

You can edit the mp4 files directly in iMovie and I hear that you can edit mp4 files natively in the new FCP. I'd like to see that my self.

There are some new cameras out that capture H.264 and if the N95 did this it would be perfect.

H.264 would be perfect - perhaps even making it possible to get 4 hours out of a 2gb MicroSD.

For me, the best video capture Nokia is the N93i, I love the N95, but the mono sound is a downer.
