The stock camera software on the iPhone is extremely basic and only those with a 3GS have video recording capabilities. If you’ve jailbroken your early gen iPhones then, yes, your device is capable of recording video, but that’s illegal. Heh.

It’s just icing on the cake that it comes with all the bells and whistles you’d want from a camera app.
