    ^^ You've got to send that to USHA, They might just use it on their FB page with a bunch of gibberish explaining what it is.

    The end result is same, essentially all videos are still frames moved with high speed. Gif is multiple frame together. So in theory GIF are simplified version of video but the tech is seemingly reversed because video are no more stored as multiple pictures.

    initpidzero Ya.. technically you're right.. it's a very highly optimized animated gif.
    But I defy you.. take a regular camera (not even asking you to take a cel phone).. grab a bunch of images..
    import them into photoshop.. make an animated gif.. now optimize that gif till you get only selective parts to optimize..
    and do this in under FIVE Hrs (as opposed to the 5 secs these Lumias are doing it in)

    And NO.. you can't shoot a video and convert to animated GIFs.. since the max resolution you'll get is 1080p ..
    These are true Hi-res.. upto 8mp on my phone.. but theoretically upto 42mp on MrsJD666 's phone. (don't know if they have released this for her phone yet)
    So you're gonna be woking with 5-8mp big animated gifs.. Hope you have one heck of a computer :)

    Kinda busy on Sat. We're going out to dinner :)

    Thank Jiju for me, please.
    This thing is really good.
    I know I'm beginning to sound like an ad for this Usha 3212 Halogen Oven.. but it's really that good.
    It can cook some things that my 5-1 Microwave and regular oven had no chance of doing.

    I bought 17 KGs of meat from 5 places today.. something I've Never done in my life..
    Quite frankly I doubt in the west I could Afford to buy 17KGs of meat together.. among them..
    Jumbo Shrimp, Ribs, Chicken Wings, Pork Chops, Fish fillets, broiler chicken & more..
    and in India.. it cost me the price of a good dinner for two!! (In INDIA.. not good dinner in the west.. I could probably get 40KGs for that)

    Sure.. lets have a meet in my place..
    Just gimme a week to try these different kinds of meat out to see what works good in this thing.

    Too bad not everyone likes meat.. :(
    But so far I've had the best potatoes & garlic bread from this..
    But haven't tried any real vegetarian foods like Paneer Tikka etc on it.

    SERIOUSLY.. I've got to stop sounding like a walking Ad for this thing..
    It's just that cooking and making food hasn't ever excited me before :)
    Just wish this was around when I was there.. and I could have made myself Indian delicacies that I could never get...
    Hear that initpidzero .. go get yourself one (not an Usha ofcourse.. but the UK has some really cheap halogen ovens, and essentially the same thing)
