There are probably other YouTube videos testing the camera. I haven’t seen those. This is the kind of footage that interests me.
My notebook maxes out at 720p playback. You would think that would actually make the image sharper, but it doesn’t. The video is … well, the only word to use is crappy. It looks like it was shot with a crappy generic bargain Chinese sports cam! There seems to be a lot of machine edge sharpening going on, making everything look artificial — and there are many points where the damn algorithm just gives up and vomits out a collection of indistinct pixel blobs. I know YouTube can also degrade things but, seriously, this is surprisingly bad for anything from an iPhone. I’ve watched hundreds — if not over a thousand — of ride videos shot with a variety of cameras (some even iPhones) and this is one of the worst.
