From BGR's review:
"The video the Epic shoots is not spectacular, it isn’t bad by any stretch of the imagination, but it is not as crisp as the 720p video you get from the DROID X or EVO 4G. We’ve got a sample video below; we’ll let that speak for itself."
I remember the Epic 4G video samples looking better than the Evo's...
Also, a-GPS instead of GPS?

a-gps is what every phone has. the regular gps gets assisted by radio towers. Basically, it gets a rough idea of where you are and then it knows what satellites to look for, so it takes less time to get a real GPS lock.

... Video is similar. EVO does a great job in moderate light, but has issues in direct sunlight. Opposite was true in my tests on the Epic. Video in direct sunlight was best and moderate light (i.e. shady outdoors) not as crisp. Interesting, really.

That was a great review but I too didn't particularly like the video and photo comment. I have one waiting for me tomorrow at a Sprint store but I keep reading mixed reviews on the video and camera quality. I think the best review for me would be my own. I'll just put it on a new account and cancel it within 30 days if I don't like it. No damage done. If I do like it then Ill just cancel the service and let them charge me for the phone.

on the engadget podcast josh said that the iPhone camera is much better than the one on the Captivate.
The iPhone 4 camera really is very nice, but for videos the angle is messed up, the wide angle on the GS phones is much more flexible.
