The maximum resolution of the camera is 1280x720, which is 720p HD for video. However, this produces a 16:9 aspect ratio (widescreen) which is not typical for photos and definitely wouldn't be what most users would want or expect. Hence, the sides are cropped for still photos leaving you with 960x720 for a more normal 4:3 aspect ratio.

It's extremely unlikely that iOS 5 will change this, particularly since Apple is likely to be releasing an entirely new iPod touch model in the next few weeks.

I see. I really like the video recording, looks very nice.

But the pictures don't look good at all, only when taken under abundant sunlight, and using the focus feature... But the video quality seem far superior, even if it had the same resolution.

Unfortunately with all the buzz around "HD" people actually forget that video recording resolutions have always been inferior to still photo resolutions. Even the cheapest point-and-shoot cameras these days are around 5 megapixels, and most camera are now easily in the 8 - 10 MP range.

By contrast, even a 1080p HD video camera is only recording at 1920 x 1080, which works out to only around 2 megapixels. A 720p HD video is only around 0.9 megapixels and standard-definition video is around 0.3 megapixels.

well Mr. E the new 4th generation has all those features you are talking about. With wifi capabilities, external speaker, a back facing camera with mic, a front facing camera, app capable, push notification, and multitasking with push it is exactly what you are looking for. It is now become a great wifi VOIP phone with chat/SMS/Voip calling as well as the new ios 5 with all it's great new features like notification center, icloud, and imessenger and many more great features

After nearly 2 years with no iPods (been using DSi, PSP, and most recently 3DS as music players), I got myself a shiny new 8GB Touch (Pearly White) for Christmas. Loving it so far! Not only can I finally play that copy of Mirror's Edge I downloaded last September, but my entire libraries on both Comixology (admittedly, a bit small) and Nook (a bit bigger) are at my fingertips. Plus, the whole messaging things a nice touch, as I can communicate (around WiFi) with other family members' iPhones. Double plus, I have a decent camera with me for pictures and video. I know there are rumors about a more better Touch right around the corner, but very happy with my purchase, though I do kind of wish I'd waited a bit longer and got the 16GB. C'est la vie!

It's quickly becoming apparent that I should have sprung for the 32GB Touch. Already having to shuffle games in and out (losing saves in the process), and there's no room for the few shows and movies I have on iTunes. What to do, what to do?

I didn't have this problem with my 1G Touch, but then the only game I had on that was Tetris... no Mirror's Edge, no Touch Detective, and certainly no 990MB Batman.

Maybe I can weed out a bit of the music on my iPod that I don't really listen to.

Hey guys,

I am a new iPod Touch owner and I need a cool case. I have been having my eye on this case called the Morphcase. Do you guys know of any sleek cases? I don't want a big case that is difficult to get in and out of my pocket.
