If you’re not already familiar with 1st Video, here’s a video tour.

Foundry’s RollingShutter can Fix iPhone Jellocam

Ever shot video with an iPhone 3GS?  Ever tried panning, or shooting a fast moving subject?  If so, then you are no doubt aware of ‘rolling shutter.’  It’s that weird looking warble that makes everything look like it’s made of Jello… hence the commonly used term, Jellocam.  It’s not just the iPhone that suffers from this debilitating condition.  It effects many low cost digital cameras.
