    This does not involve hard modding or anything, but is rather simple.

    1. Get ur cell phone and take a picture.
    2. Bluetooth transfer it to ur ipod using iBlueNova
    3. Done

    That easy. Although its ur phone taking the picture, the snapped pic still ends up on ur ipod and u could upload it to facebook from there or something. It's easy and takes 10 seconds longer than normally taking a picture with an iPhone. This is potentially useful for people with computer without bluetooth or phones without cables.

    Or you could send the picture to your email if you're not jailbroken

    Why? He's trying to help somebody.

    The title may be misleading, but there's nothing wrong with thread.

    On topic:
    I prefer emailing it to myself. That way I have it backed up on my iPhone.
    I just use the camera in my iPhone, but used email when I used my iPod touch)

    I know. I understand that.

    That's why I said I used to do that (except emailed) when I didn't have an iPhone.

    While we are at it, if you have an old phone you can duct tape it to your ipod and just use its camera.

    I think it's entirely possible for a camera for the ipod touch. All that's needed is a case with one built-in, and a nice app to allow it to work (on all iPod touches hack and not,) and the ability to have the photos or videos be instantly imported to the camera roll.

    I'd think it can be done for like $50, maybe like $80 if it also had built-in battery.

    Someone get a company for us all to bother until they come up with something like this.

    I'd say Mophie or Incase, since both have made battery cases.

    We need mobs.
