FocalBoxWhile the iPhone 3GS has a number of improvements, the game-changer is video capture and distribution. While other handsets have some video capability, the iPhone version is already becoming the de facto standard for mobile video capture—and with good reason.

To hijack a bit of Elizabeth Browning’s famous poem, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. I love thee to the depth and breadth and height” of OutColor’s newest update!  YESSSS!  The good people at Vizros Software have done it.
