"In another surprising move, Apple has approved iVideoCamera, an iPhone application that can record video on an iPhone 3G or 2G."
Called iVideoRecorder, and available now for $0.99 USD in the iTunes store, this will allow you to record video on your 2G or 3G iPhone without jailbreaking it. You won't get the quality of the 3GS since there is less computing power in the 2G and 3G and the camera in those iPhones is only 2 megapixels, but there are some benefits. One is you don't have to jailbreak your iPhone to get video ability. Another one is that you can upload to Facebook and Vimeo and the developer plans on Twitter integration as well as improvements to the frame rate. Frame rate is only 3 frames per second, paltry when compared to the 3GS 30 fps. But for 99 cents adding some functionality seems pretty cheap. Just don't expect the quality of the video to knock your socks off.
