    Theres been a lot of talk about the iPods new camera, its only has .7 megapixels yet it can record HD video. I dont understand that. I've also heard that the camera is the same as the iPhone 4g, but software restricts the quality of the images. Any thoughts?

    This really should be merged with the already numerously merged threads with regards to the camera. And I don't believe that "software restricts the quality of the images." That would be the hardware.

    Its just like how you can, on a 10 megapixel device, set it to a lower resolution, which is essentiall what apple is doing without giving us a choice. Theres really no reason though. Who would want a 1280 x 720 picture. Thats a widescreen picture.

    You do realize that 720p HD video is less than 1 megapixel right?

    Also, the iphone 4 camera is way too thick to fit in the touch 4 chassis.

    Mega pixel has nothing to do with quality.

    You must be really new to the forum. Do some searching.
