    I didn't get from the Apple site what's the quality of the back camera of the iPod Touch 4G.
    Does anyone know?

    Probably 5MP like the iP4.

    WTH?
    why would they put such a low quality camera when the iPhone 4 has a 5 MPX camera...
    and why would people want to film in HD with 0.6 mpx camera...

    Are you sure about this?

    You don't need more than .7 MP to shoot 720p.

    It does suck for photos, though.

    Well, maybe you don't NEED, but I can't get why they added this rear camera.
    If you want to put a camera so put a high quality one, if you don't so don't put one at all.

    Apple succeeded! I'm disappointed again...
    Last event all the rumors were that the 3G iPod Touch will have a camera, so I wanted that, and then I got disappointed.
    This time I was really skeptical, but then I saw that they did add a camera, so I was happy, but now I understand that it is a low quality one...

    They wanted to make the ipod 4g thinner. The same camera as the iphone 4 would necessitate a thicker casing. And that's the problem. I also wished it was better. Heck I wasn't expecting 5mp same as the iphone 4, but at least 3mp. I was quite surprised it was only .7mp.

    Oh well, for video, its okay, but still shots would be a different matter, unless all your doing is uploading to facebook.
