    Hey All,

    I recently visited England and recorded this on my iPod Touch 4G. It's an overcast day, with mostly natural light but not much in comparison to other video examples given so far.

    I say it did really well, compared to my Kodak Zi6 I used to carry around for HD recording. I can't believe how great these new iPods are. The camera still quality is not quite there, but good for capturing the moment...

    Uploaded directly from my iPod to YouTube

    Feel free to ask questions.

    The video looks very jerky. Is that how the original looks, or did youtube do that during the conversion process?

    Yeah, I noticed that YouTube compress iPod output files pretty much so it lacks much details and sharpness/smoothness. It is really pointless to judge quality of iPod camera unless you have seen original RAW file.

    It's better than what I expected. Very nice. The quality is better than my FujiFilm by the way LOL.

    The original is pretty bumpy actually. I don't have a steady hand. That being said, the link I put automatically links to the HD version of he video. Maybe it's too mch for some peoples computers to handle?

    YouTube does seem to compress he video though. It looks nicer on my computer

    Just out of curiosity, how long did it take you to upload it to YouTube? My upload speed is #$%# as hell and it will take very long to upload a video, especially an HD one.

    That took around 8 mins to convert and upload. Not bad, considering it never saw a computer in the process.
