Prevent automatic syncing one time, without changing settings: Open iTunes. Then, as you connect the iPhone to your computer, press and hold Command-Option (on a Mac) until you see iPhone appear in the sidebar.
Then, open iPhoto and import the video.
Then, eject your friend's iPhone.

I just tested with my iPhone 3gs on an imac I don't sync to, using iMovie. If iTunes opens, when you plug in the phone, just quit iTunes. Then open iMovie, and click on the camera button, on left side of window. It will build thumb nail images of video files on the iPhone.

When I connect iPhone to iMac it is NOT recognized as a device in finder. Likewise When I connected then closed iTunes and clicked on the camera on the left in iMovie the iPhone is still NOT recognized.
I successfully e-mailed a 33 second video from the iPhone. But videos 50 seconds and longer were too big to e-mail.
Photos are easily transferred via iCloud but videos are ignored by iCloud.
iPhone is visible in iTunes (unlike in Finder and iMovie) but when I select "MOVIE" and sync, the video is not transferred during the sync.
I followed Jim VanLeeuwen's (above). It worked.

I followed your instructions.
This works exactly as you describe!
