    That is, in the same way you plug a digital camera into your iPod to back up your photos...

    I'm going overseas, want to buy a Canon TX1 but it only stores 13 minutes of HD on its 4GB storage! So I'm wondering if I take an iPod too, can I just backup the 4GB onto it?

    (I'm backpacking, so I'm NOT taking my computer)

    I don't think there's a way to do with with a laptop or computer, so no. Make sure that it's a really, really good 13 minutes of footage. :)

    its gonna be expensive. Maybe a memory card based one and one of those adapters for an Ipod. It be cheaper to not go HD. Maybe even DV?

    If that takes SD cards, get a 4GB SD cards and then you can have 2 minutes per country. :D

    Use the 7.1 MP camera on that thing. Now that's high-def. :) :p
