    I just tried to shoot some HD video, during a video recording session while the other cameras were rolling, and unless I did something wrong, the video quality is absolutely horrible. Yes it's HD dimensions, but there is no clarity whatsoever, so many artifacts, worse than VHS quality in my opinion. I attached a screen cap of part of the video picture. What's wrong here?

    While I can't speak for the video quality since it isn't posted, that pic screams low lighting and it's using a high iso to compensate for it (which makes it grainy).

    Im not sure yet but I think that when I move the video to my Mac, then to Youtube I get better results that if I upload it directly from my Droid X to Youtube.

    Play with the settings, there might be more than you may have noticed.

    I've recorded a few movies in low light and they look the same, very grainy. I actually have not yet recorded in normal lighting to see if there is a difference.

    Your trying to shoot good HD though a pinhole? ;) Buy a real camcorder if you want semi-pro results. This thing is a "toy" when it comes to video and pictures.

    It does O.K. in full sunlight but I would NEVER consider the X video "good"

    I agree, HD on my Droid X is nice in full sunlight, indoors, not so much. Then again, indoors, my Sony HD Camcorder isn't the best either. If you want High Quality, you gotta pay for it.

    Let's all remember, it is a phone (and more) after all. dancedroid

    Droid X video

    It is true that the video is not the best. Yes, it is a smartphone but some do have better camera's and video recorders than others. As for the Droid X I found that outdoors during the day I recorded great videos. If indoors I needed good lighting. If not enough lighting the video was horrible as you know. The iPhone 4 takes better pictures and videos I noticed.

    Droid X

    HAHA. I know it sucks to not have good coverage in your area. I had to give up my Droid X because I could not take the bad coverage in my area. I know that it just depends where we live. No company covers everywhere. Since the states I lived in (Virginia, Michigan, IL and now Southern CA) always had good coverage with AT&T I went back. I always heard that Verizon was superior and started believing it but as I said earlier it just depends where you are. In the end I went with the phone that worked in my area and that meant returning the Droid X for the iPhone 4.
    But even though the video is not as good. I can tell you I really miss having the option to use the Droid X as a mobile "HOTSPOT". I also found a Verizon store that was amazing. Can't stress how great customer service was.
    Pro's and Con's-ever phone has it.

    I'm definitely disappointed in the HD Video capabilities of my DROID X. That is NOT HD... someone said barely VHS and I believe I'm going to have to agree. I'm going to keep working it and change my ISO, right now I'm trying it on 100 instead of auto to see if it makes a difference.
