Thanks to a couple of debaters, the last thread was closed.
The question remains.

Leo confirmed in his question, that Nokia 5200 does support video capturing. And acting on Hartti's advice, I also bought a Nokia 3110 Classic.
I'll report back once I've tested these phones (expecting delivery within 2-3 days)
While the Nokia 5200 does support video capturing it must be said that the implementation is highly unstable. Often the JVM hangs/takes a very long time initializing the camera (> 10 seconds).
The default resolution for getSnapshot(..) is 120x160. It works with 240x320 and even 480x640 although the latter takes several seconds.

Yep the Nokia 3110 Classic supports video capturing. The camera is initialized within 2 seconds, so that's much better than the 5200 + it's stable (it works every time).
But ... if you tell it to USE_DIRECT_VIDEO on a Canvas, the camera initializes instantly!Code:append((Item) videoControl.initDisplayMode(VideoControl.USE_GUI_PRIMITIVE, "javax.microedition.lcdui.Item"));
