Comments on: Treo Footage Used to Break News Story

Reuters is reporting that earlier this week when a single-engine plane crashed into a New York City apartment building, Fox News Channel delivered early live video to its viewers from the crash site shot using a Palm Treo.
Scott Wilder, a cameraman for the network, had been about 20 blocks away on another assignment when the crash occurred. Wilder ran uptown and reported live from the scene using a hand-held Palm Treo smartphone that uses the existing mobile network to transmit video to the Fox News control room. From there, Fox News sent it out live on TV to supplement other video being shot by local traffic helicopters. Wilder's work represents one of the first instances of a network using video captured via mobile phone camera live on the air.

What's the camcorder resolution on the 700 series? The 650's camcorder is next to useless given that it's limited to 352x288.
