Palm Pre Gets Filming on the Sly

precorderThe Palm Pre has been afflicted just like the iPhone was.

Its camera is good enough but the makers missed out the opportunity from moving pictures.

But now you can shoot 480 x 320-pixel video at 30fps.

The homebrew software is only an alpha (so it’s not totally stable and you’re not able to preview what you’re recording), but the app works, and is free to download.

When WebOS 1.3.1 skipped updating the camera app, the developers of Precorder decided not to wait any longer, and things are looking pretty good.

The app supports MPEG-4, H.263, and H.264/AVC video recording, lets you control the flash, and videos can be played back in the Pre’s video player.
