Tinyman December 5, 2011, 3:27 am

You have to jailbreak it first

GoodBoy September 2, 2010, 2:41 pm

What, only 0,7mpix rear camera?!? Is that a joke? That erases new ipod touch out of my shopping list 🙁

armyman1016 November 19, 2010, 3:50 am

well the 780p video makes up for that!:]

[email protected] January 5, 2011, 12:09 am

well the camera is great but really doesnt cover or justify the camera i take pics off the internet the seem to appear in better pixels so……. apple put a better pixel in the ipod touch we really didnt ask for such a slim ipod or did we? anyway the only thing about it being slim is it just slips in our pockets but there harder to keep in our hands with out a case so… still fix the camera

david November 19, 2011, 2:43 am

apple everything September 2, 2010, 10:53 pm

come on apple youve done a top job but youve spoilt it with that crappy camera

leftieswillrule September 6, 2010, 7:43 pm

I’m not sure why everybody complains about the .7MP camera. It’s perfect for viewing on the ipod itself, and if you need good pictures, use a real camera or a cell phone.

m4ximum December 1, 2010, 6:18 pm

you’re absolutely right, its all about the quality of the camera, MP only comes in play when you really want to print those pictures, in that case you’ll probably going to use a photo camera anyway.

Mike s September 7, 2010, 11:08 pm

Wait untill the 7g comes out at least then it will be impossible
to put crappy features on.
Look at the iphone 3g had a 1 mp now where at 4g and its 5 mp
in other words apple just want your money and expect you to wait for top
features while they get rich by our spending and spending until we have what
we want in that of a 5 mp camera.
Its just like stringging you along and teasing you at the same time.

JazzytheMudkip September 8, 2010, 3:13 am

This is great.
You would think that they would have a greater pixel number rather than 0.7??

I just picked one up from the Futureshop. I’ve bought each model since the 2g model because there is simply no other device like it that isn’t a phone too. The iPod touch 3g was already very fast and easy to use.

The only thing I don’t like is having to buy a new case for it. It is a little smaller than the 3g model. I had to buy a cheep rubber 3g case and cut holes for the cams. It’s not perfect but at least I can protect it until proper cases come out.

All in all a very nice upgrade for owners of any previous models…the retina display is just beautiful!!!!

Goombah September 10, 2010, 5:16 am

I just found out about the substandard camera they’re loading in these. Sorry apple… Ya dun goof’d

Minehava October 19, 2010, 8:45 pm

I returned mine in less then 24h!
Apple sales people actually tried to tell me that the .92 (after update from .7MP) is a lie and that quality it is much better. When I asked for spec. they mumbled around and instead took pictures to show me the amazing (amazingly blured) photos this ‘thing’ can take.
The fact that they consider the (bad) ratings on any (googled) web an unjust and refered me to their own web without specs or rating speak for it self.
Also they accepted the rating 5MP for the iPhone but the iTouch camera according to the tech whizes is measured not in MP but in some other unspecified picture quality media.
…… Sheesh! What a rip off!

Mark November 3, 2010, 11:40 pm

Guys! Actually, it does not mean that the higher Megapixel the camera is, the higher the quality of image, it’s the size actually. It is stated that it is VGA, my laptop has .3 megapixels and still has good images on well lighted places. Dont blame apple if you are an idiot. Always remember, Google is your friend. do sum research

PsychoLotus November 11, 2010, 8:01 pm

why would dude have to research? he bought it what more research would you need than that? and it isnt the size its the quality look it up.. google is your friend remember

bammaster November 17, 2010, 7:41 am

You are partially right. However contrary to popular belief, mega-pixels aren’t everything. They determine the size of the image which definitely has an effect because you can fit more pixels per inch thus creating clear images. However as apple stated with he iPhone 4, mega-pixels are not everything. ts the exposure that the sensor gets thats what counts. The more light that hits the sensor the better the image. You can take a 15 mega-pixel shot and a 10 mega-pixel shot with higher sensor exposure and the 10 mega-pixel would probably look better. HDR is also something to consider im imagery HDR photos look amazing in comparison to non HDR.
Also the camera is not the only let down. That A4 chip is not new hardware from the 3G at all its got the same processor and video chip-set, just in a smaller slightly more efficient and higher clocked package(the A4 Chip) so upgrading from a third gen is in my opinion off this information useless.

oudinmelanie09 November 15, 2010, 8:19 am

I just got the new iPod Touch 4G and it is really a video playerwith thinner design including two cameras for FaceTime and HD video recording, Retina display from iPhone 4, Apple A4 chip.
But there still a limitation of its playable video formats. iPod Touch 4G can additionally play video with formats of MPEG-4 (H.264/MPEG-4 AVC) and QuickTime video formats. This is a headache issue because various video downloaded from web or Blu-ray/DVD video can not be played in this iPod Touch 4G. Via google, I found a program named Aunsoft iMedia Converter for Mac is an ideal assistant for iPod Touch 4G. This software can efficiently transcode almost all formats of video to iPod Touch 4G video formats.

Now share this info with you, guys.

Hope useful.

sam December 27, 2010, 8:12 pm

Hi i bought my ipod touch 64gb like a week ago, but seems having problem with the battery life. it sez here that it runs at least 40 hours during music playback but mine is just aroun half a day and it’s dead as in full drained. got to bring my usb cable and adaptor everytime. anyone please give advise of what i have to do??? do i need to bring this to the apple service center??

Gggfg January 6, 2011, 1:26 pm

Yea, I have the same problem, with battery

Matt January 28, 2011, 9:17 am

You can try double tapping the home button to bring up the multitasking bar and then holding a finger on one of the icons to put into wiggle mode. Then tap the red minus symbol to quit applications that are being run. Also, if you are away from home or not using wifi, turn it off. It drains battery substantially. Good luck!

pauloq January 9, 2011, 8:32 pm

hey i got the ipod touch 4g for christmas and it rocks the camara quality is ok but i like the multitasking feauter and the retina display.

BAM March 9, 2011, 6:38 am

When you record video on the itouch 4g, what file format are the videos when they are transferred to your computer?

BaddaBoom April 1, 2011, 3:00 am

thanks for the specs but there is a little typo by the way “The A4 chip – the same technology as of iPas and iPhone 4”

iPas = iPad

rajveer April 10, 2011, 8:50 pm

i have this ipod and you all are talking about how junky the camera is, well it takes excellent photos. nuff said

cornfedBC October 11, 2011, 4:07 am

I was surprised to by the low MP. But the quality is better than my 1.3MP camera phone. I suppose it’s because the shutter speed is faster in the iPod than my cell phone. If you’re not getting a smart phone, this is what you want.

jyotirmoy07 November 14, 2011, 8:06 pm
