    On this section of the fourms, I've been seeing many users debate about a Camera being added on the iPod touch. Some even go as far as saying that the iPod touch will have a video camera. While it is possible, some of those users claim the iPod touch won't have a mic. Well, what would be the point of recording videos without a mic? That leaves a Video Recorder out of the window unless Apple adds a mic to the iPod touch 3g.

    Discuss?

    Which would sound better?

    "We have a VIDEO camera in this model"

    or

    "There is a camera, but it is for pictures only"

    i'd honestly prefer they put video camera in it, as that would imply mic too lol

    If they add video, there will be a mic. How could there not be?

    But, if Apple goes the way that Microsoft would, they would put a camera in, but restrict it to pictures only.

    they probably won't put a video camera's in it (including a mic), they probably didn't want to put a camera in it at all, but the new competition has force them too, useless they really do want to lose loads of profits.
    but with this other rumor going around that they'll have front facing camera aswell is stupid, they have more reason to put it in there iPhone 3GS and haven't so why would they put one in the ipod touch GS?

    what i think will happen, is that they won't have a mic in it but have a attachment for a mic for video capture. this is more valuable to them since it's boasting the new 3.0 (soon to be 3.1) update.

    Edit 1: if they did put a Mic in it they'll have to keep some applications for the iphone (like voice memo's)
    put then people will kick up more about that then if there was no mic at all

    you do know that you can already plug in a mic to a 2g, right? apple wouldn't be stupid enough to put in a video camera without a mic. maybe they will restrict the mic only to apple approved apps, like the camera app. this seems like one of those asshole moves they are known for making.

    The Zii Egg has an HD video Camera and another camera, It can watch videos at 1080p. Apple would be really stupid if they just added a camera and "demoed" camera games.

    But if they added a camera AND a mic and didn't have the vid camera feature then I'm pretty sure the jailbreak community can help me out >

    Let's hope it's a video camera (with a mic) in the new iPod Touch.

    But let's see how the nano was first in history.

    The iPod video was the only iPod to watch video and every body bought it.

    The nano was used strictly for music and it was to small to watch video (just like how the itouch is to thin to hold a cam and a mic)

    The 3rd gen came out with video and EVERYBODY bought it.

    iPod video became the iPod classic with Tons of memory.

    The end. It seems likely the same thing could happen to the itouch

    id actually prefer it if they just put in a front facing camera for stuff like skype and make it the first mobile device for video skype. Also if they brought a new service for the ipod touch like wifi evrywhere?

    I believe it's going to have a 2.0 megapixel camera, and a mic. No video recording.
