I'm on the verge of getting an iPhone 4 but before I do, can anyone help me with a question about video sound?...

Is it possible to connect an external mic source (I have a Zoom H2) to the phone, to give better quality sound on HD videos (For upload to YouTube)?

This is not Zoom specific, but may point you in the right direction.

I have recorded a few videos with my iPhone 4, and the sound quality seems pretty good.
I recorded a friend, whilst the TV was on in the background, and it picked up all the sound perfectly.
I have recorded a couple of pieces with the voice recorder as well, and even though the phone was sat on the keyboards speaker, it was near perfect quality.
I think you can connect an external mic through the headphone jack, but it isn't really something I have looked into.

There are a few solutions out there to connect external mics to the iphone. kvconnections sells various adapter cables depending on the type of mic you want to use (e.g. balanced xlr, line level from your zoom , etc). Keep in mind that there are limitations to the mic input on the phone so don't expect recording studio quality stuff, but it will be quite better than the onboard iphone mic (esp if you want to use shotguns to deal with misc noise).
