I can't seem to find a reference on Apple's website about this.

Are you telling me that Apple is allowing video on the nano, but not still shots?

That's just weird.

No 720p either? Pah.

I'll stick with my Kodak Zi8 Order.

Yeah it's a bit odd. I would've assumed it would take photo, but Apple's website mentions only video.

it's not really weird. The camera takes video at 640x480 pixels, which isn't a whole lot. it's enough for the occasional video, but i reckon if they let people take photos with it too they'd need a much better camera.

of course i could be completely wrong. :)

from my understanding, your still shot quality is higher than video quality. iPhone 3GS takes 3.2MP pictures, but shoots video in VGA. So I'd assume you could get a higher quality picture than what the video is

Extract a shot using QuickTime, then enhance in iPhoto or Photoshop.

The nanoCam is supposed to compete with this (http://video.nytimes.com/video/2008/03/20/technology/personaltech/1194817112152/the-flip-ultra-video-recorder.html) (commercial precedes).

Anyone know if there's a size/length limit for recorded videos? Or are free space and battery power the only limit?

I'm thinking easy, decent (better than most cell phones) bootleg concert videos, when supplemented with a separate audio source.
