We grabbed the iPod nano and did a few tests to see the video quality in everyday situations.
For instance, we took it to get burritos, and spun around in a circle with it. You know, what you do in your everyday life.
If definitely won't replace your dedicated DV cam, but it's a fun feature to have when you're out walking, or when your cat decides to climb the curtains.
We also shot video with the Flip mino and iPhone 3GS along side the iPod nano to gauge the differences between the three devices. You can judge the quality for yourself in the three videos at the bottom of this page.
We did notice that the iPod nano can be difficult to hold without your finger, or fingers, covering the lens. You can flip the device over, thanks to the accelerometer, and that solved some of the problems. But folks with large hands will still have difficulty handling the small device without covering the lens.
Below are the tests we conducted.
