    Hello guys.

    1st of all, I'm no video expert. Feel free to go int as much detail as you want for reference, but keep it simple for me.

    What are the current devices are capable of when recording videos? What is the best they can go? 240p? 320p? 480p? 720p? 1080p (hehe ok ok I know they can't go this high)?

    2.0 mpx (81xx, 85xx, 9000) - ?
    3.2 mpx (8900, 9700, 95xx, 96xx) - ?
    5.0 mpx (9780, 9800) - ?

    And how does that translate to the "youtube" quality I refered to (240p, 320p etc)?

    Torch and 9780 have same cams isn't it so?

    Max is 480p.
    On what camera? 2mpx, 3.2mpx or 5mpx? I find it hard to believe this does not matter, but if it is so do clarify.

    The second number is the quality of the video. So for 640 x 480, the video quality would be 480p.

    Blackberries don't do HD Recording. 480p is VGA Resolution: 640x480.

    It's also important to know how many Frames per Second the camera records at at different resolutions, as well. There's a discernable difference between 24 and 30 FPS. I'm not sure what the different blackberries do.

    Blackberries should be able to do 240p (Half VGA or HVGA), but I don't know why anyone would record at that resolution, personally...

    CRASH, that's the answer I've been looking for really. Thanks!

    N8ter, I know they can't do HD (in fact nobody mentioned HD... althou I did kest about 1080). Sad thing really considering what's out there. Do you have any ideas on how to figure out FPS? Maybe some software would be able to tell?

    Hey Tucker, see what useful posts look like?

    On my computers, Windows XP, Vista, and 7, all I have to do is right-click on a picture and click on properties to find out the fps rate. I also get what brand and model camera was used.

    Funny thing... My 8520's cam records are 7FPS while my 8310 records at 12FPS. The video quality on the 8520 is a lot better but the FPS is a joke.

    I had notice that the camera performance on the 8520 decreased from 4.6 to 5.0.... anyway, that's enough info people. Thatnks for the help.

    Now I know the 9780 should do 480p at 24FPS.

    Impressive loss from 4.6 to 5.0... 15FPS down to 7FPS. The camera was actually pretty good! Wonder why RIM messed it up...

    Nick, test and tell us.

    Good for you, but I'd bet its just an impression. Many people over the 8520 board have complained about this issue, I just never bothered testing. Till now, that is.
