iPhone music video

If you've been on the fence lately about buying an iPhone 4, this video may just convince you to whip out the ol' credit card.

A  band from Dayton, Ohio, called BJSR, has filmed a video for their song, "Play," entirely from the camera on an iPhone. While it may not be the quality of a Scorsese or Spielberg movie, it's definitely not your grandma's Handy Cam.

The video follows a man riding his bicycle through the streets of the Greater Miami Valley, stopping to play Scrabble with random citizens. The video camera built into the iPhone allows high definition recording at 720 pixels and up to 30 frames per second with audio. The tiny lens also serves as a 5 megapixel camera.

Of course, if you're not interested in buying a phone, the latest iPod Touch also includes an HD camera along with the high resolution "Retina" display. The iPhone 4, with an AT&T contract, will set you back $199, and the iPod Touch starts at $229. For more information, visit To see more videos filmed from an iPhone, check out Mashable.
