720P video capture compared on the HTC 7 Trophy, iPod Touch, Flip HD and many other devices

Nigel Parker have published this video comparing video capture on a variety of devices, including the iPod Touch, Windows Phone 7 HTC Trophy, Samsung PL150, Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10, Flip UltraHD, Flip minoHD, Nikon D7000  in 1080p, all shooting the same scene of Pleo toy in bright sunlight.

When comparing the 720p video of the iPod Touch with the HTC 7 Trophy, the video from the iPod Touch has less compression artefacts, but is a lot softer, while the 7 Trophy shows more detail, at the cost of some significant compression artefacts.

In the end however what is pretty surprising is that the result from all the devices look nothing like what one is used to on one’s 50 inch flat screen, making one wonder if HD video capture is in fact worthwhile on these mobile devices.

What do our readers think of the video quality on these devices? Let us know below.
