    Is the default and only recording resolution for iPhone 4s 1080p? I'm a new iPhone user and get lost in the settings. I thought I saw an option to change to 1080p from what I thought was a default 720p. Was I dreaming? I've googled the hell out of this. Thx

    One of the reasons I went with 64 as well. Tool a 7 minute long video of the kids last night... It was well over a gig.

    Yeah it's pretty annoying you can't downgrade the quality. I have a 16gig so I usually remove videos from the phone when I can. I'll res them down on my computer if it is something I want to put back on my phone.

    I'm sure people would if they had a fast internet connection. Someone mentioned that 7 minutes of video took up over 1GB? With my cable connection (1.5Mbps up) it'd take an hour and a half.

    That is a good idea. I'm a big fan of sugarsync over Dropbox. But I could get the video and then quickly upload (relatively quickly depending on upload speed like you said). Very convent!

    Do videos that get sent to utube convert to smaller sizes? I'll have to check on that but makes a valid point also.

    App Store - Camcorder Pro - HD Video with Retina Display

    you can use Camcorder Pro to CHOOSE what quality video you are shooting. [480, 640, 720 or 1080 depending on he device]

    and YES. the videos are downsized to 720p when uploading to youtube directly from your iPhone 4S. if you wanted it in 1080p, you'll have to import the videos to your computer.

    edit: camcorder pro shoots in 1080 on the 4S, and 720 on the 4

    He means from your phone to icloud or dropbox. You should get fast speeds around 7mb with the 4s. takes no time

    When uploading straight from your iPhone to your Dropbox account, there is a 180MB file size limit. That knocks out almost most videos over a minute long on the 4s (1080p). Does anyone know if SugarSync has this same problem? I would love to find a way to upload videos (on my home WiFi) without tethering. Any thoughts?

    I know that's what he meant. Where did you get the 7mb from? Even on AT&T, I haven't seen anyone get a upload speed past 2Mbps.

    My upload speeds blow at home, but I do go ahead and copy 15min 1080 vids to pc then upload to YouTube. It takes about 12 hours per vid, but it doesn't really bother me how long it takes as long as it's off my iPhone then I delete from pc. If I ever need the vid again I just rip it from YouTube back to pc.

    Yeah, that definitely works. If I were to do that, I would probably use a work or school internet connection to upload it, as long as YouTube isn't blocked. Or even the Apple Store's WiFi would work, they have pretty fast internet.

    it can be changed by using a different app to do your video recording. I use FilMic Pro and it has a resolution that allows you to choose between 1080, 720 and 480.

    Thanks... I was searching for an app like this...

    I don't think the filmic app is compatible with the 4s at the moment. I can't locate it in the app store and following the Buy It link from the filmic pro website gives me a "Your request cannot be completed" message.

    Update: I guess there was a serious bug in their iOS 5 update of the app so it was pulled. They are fixing it and it should be available again soon.

    Looks like FiLMiC is still buggy (too few reviews to get a good idea). I did find Camera Plus Pro claims to shoot in 640x480 (with live video filters), but it doesn't look like you can select beyond that.

    1080p is just too much for me. I don't have the storage capacity for that kind of resolution. I'd love to hear if anyone else has luck with FiLMiC Pro with an iPhone 4S.

    I have sent an email to the developers of ProCamera and Camera Genius to inquire about whether their apps allow one to choose resolution for video recording. Will let folks know if I hear anything.

    Update: FiLMiC really looks to be the perfect app for me (4 resolution settings). They are very active on their Facebook page and it looks like they are working on an update as of Friday, Nov 4, 2011 for a bug that may not even affect all users.

    Update 2: Heard back from both developers: Camera Genius says they don't offer the ability to select resolutions but are considering it for future releases. ProCamera says: "ProCamera offers exactly the feature you were asking for. While in video mode, you can choose from different resolutions via the menu on the right."

    So now to decide between ProCamera and FiLMiC Pro...

    FiLMiC Pro has worked out really well for me if you are still on the fence.

    You must have more than you think cause that is only in the 4 gig range. That's still a nice chunk but shouldn't fill up your phone.

    I ended up with FilMiC and love it. Four resolution settings is good enough for me. If you get it, leave the frames per second setting at 30 fps otherwise your iPhone won't import it back from iPhoto after syncing.
