    I created a post a couple days ago for my blog trying to estimate how much space the new iPhone 4 video camera will take.

    I based my original calculations on a 4:3 ratio based on 720 resolution given on the Apple iPhone 4 page. 4:3 ratio is the same ratio as the iPhone 3GS and same as the still pics from the iPhone 4 (check by looking at samples on the iPhone 4 info page).

    So I figured a resolution of 960 x 720.

    Others are saying that if Apple says 720 HD than it must be the true 1280 x 720.

    Does anyone have any details on this? One way or the other?

    Look at the video they showed off that was made on iPhone 4 and edited in iMovie.
    Look at the iMovie interface and the video size it shows.

    It's 16:9 1280x720.

    There's no way Apple would do something as weird as 960x720. Also at that size you can't call it 720p, which they did. Steve actually said specifically "full 720p".

    16:9. Pretty simple stuff.

    I went back to the keynote and I did see he said "full 720p" so that would seem to confirm 1280x720p, but I didn't catch where showed the video size?

    Look at the final cut demo video though, it definitely looks like it's in full 720p 16:9


    16:9. Pretty simple stuff.
    I wouldn't say simple because we are talking about Apple and a phone, not a regular HD movie or something.

    When they showed the sample video that was made in iMovie on iPhone 4 it was definitely 16:9, and the iMovie interface displays a video preview pane which is also 16:9.

    Yeah, I caught that as well. The timeline was below making the video above it a 16:9.

    True, either way. It is 16:9.

    I still don't see an answer on how much space it will take. The way 3GS video recording is now, roughly 100 megs a minute.
