    I finally had some time off and decided to take a couple of video with the iPod Touch 4 and I found it to be a pleasure to work with.

    Here is a HD Clip taken at the Universal Studio Singapore just the night before.

    This is an unedited HD Clip 1:18 minute clip is about 98mb in size.

    The iPod Touch 4 saved the videos in MOV format which did work out fine. I thought it would have been saved in the MP4 format but I guess it would have been more CPU intensive.

    I am not sure if there is actually a capped time limit to how long each video clip can be but I supposed not because earlier in the day I took a 8 minute 41 second clip which was about 659mb.

    In the beginning, I was quite skeptical about the iPod Touch 4 video taking capability because the video camera is just one small tiny hole and the mic is even smaller. Of course, a lot of people have been complaining that the camera is merely a 0.7mp camera and such. As such, I expected a blurry video especially when it was taken at night. But the outcome was actually quite good.

    The iPod Touch 4 does not come with auto focus feature camera but tapping on the spot which you want it to focus on would do the trick. It is actually a cool feature as it allows you to decide where you want it to focus on. It does not support any type of zooming unlike in the still camera mode which offers digital zoom.

    With sufficient light, the video and still images does come out quite rich and well. Even the sound pick up came out to be quite impressive.

    On a side note, I was taking this clip with my left hand while holding another digital camera on my right hand so the video does not come out too professional.

    I supposed I let you decide by watching the clip. It is big so it might not be a bad idea to let it load first before watching it.

    It's actually just adjusting exposure. ;)
