iPhone hand-on videos

I am always seeing your iPhone Hand-on videos. But they are always with black background and everything is dark. Firemint made a Video where you can see how to make a white background and then you can actually see the iPhonescreen better because the camera doesn't always change it's brightness.
That would be great.

My main issue comes from the huge discrepancy in color reproduction and brightness between how the video looks on my camera's screen and how it actually looks when you import it in to iMovie. It would be nice to have the some kind of SLR functionality in a camcorder where you can actually see how the video is going to look without just needing to eyeball it off a comparatively low resolution LCD sticking out of the side of the camera.

The closest thing I've been able to get is just hooking my camcorder up to my TV via HDMI and using the TV as a pseudo-viewfinder of sorts since it has extremely accurate brightness and color compared to the crappy internal LCD... But this kind of setup seems kind of overkill for recording video of 99 games.

Just saw the NFS:Shift video with the white background. It's pretty cool.
