Video shot with Samsung GALAXY Nexus appears on YouTube in 1080p glory

During the introduction of the phone the other day, Google played a video shot with the camera on the phone. The video was of a sunset on a beach and while it showed potential, a problem with the streaming of the video gave viewers an incorrect impression of how well the handset captures video. As a result, the Google employee who took the footage-Romain Guy-posted the video on YouTube where you can get a real idea of the quality of the camera on the Samsung GALAXY Nexus.
On Google+, Romain explained that he used Adobe After Effects CS5 to produce the final edit, but only to speed up the first clip. So for the most part, the video on YouTube gives you a good idea of how video you shoot on the phone will turn out. And even watching it on a computer screen or phone, it sure looks good. Just make sure you have YouTube set for HD playback.
If you are interested in seeing how Romain Guy was able to take such a great video of the sunset on the beach using the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, just check out the pictures below!

Depends on the 5 MP and 8 MP cameras... there are some great 8 MP and some lousy 8 MP, ditto for 5 MP. This just goes to show you can't judge any piece of tech by numbers alone.

All of Samsung's high end android phones have had good cameras. From the SGS and no surprise with the Galaxy Nexus. I don't care enough about camera's to even worry about what kind of camera it has or the quality. ICS, 4.65 720p hd display is alone a reason to buy.

Not good, just excellent ! Even on fullscreen on my 22" desktop screen. But I don't understand why he made the clip faster ?

An older 5mp SLR still destroys ANY cell phone camera (even 8mp). MP don't really matter unless your blowing something up. And even if so, you can have a lot of pixels that are of poor focus/processing.

720p and 1080p versions of this video keep crashing for some reason. Don't know if anybody else is experiencing this.

Was trying on a work computer earlier. Windows 7, Google Chrome, enough internet bandwidth. Must have been a problem with the plugin, because it is working fine on my home computer, which is also a Windows 7, Google Chrome setup.
