    I held off a purchase of the iPod Touch until after Apple added the camera. My understanding from reading posts is that the camera used in the Touch is nowhere near as good as that used in the new iPhone. It, from what I understand is more for video and will take stills but has not got the features found in the iPhone. An example is the iPhone will take HDR photos, but the camera in the Touch will not.
    Am I going to be disappointed in the camera in the new Touch when I compare it to pictures a friend takes with his new iPhone or is it reasonable?
    Thanks

    Yes, the difference between the iPhone camera and the iPod touch camera for stills is quite noticeable. If you are looking for a camera you should not be looking at any i* device in the first place.

    You've got to think of them strictly as "fun" cameras and FaceTime cameras. If you expect any more from them you will be left frustrated and annoyed. For snapping quick shots to stick up on Facebook, they are fine. I even find the HD video a little grainy, and definitely does not look as good as the iPhone 4's HD video. But again, for fun, and for entertainment purposes, it's good.

    The three F's of the new touch's cams... Facebook, Fun, and FaceTime. Nothing more, nothing less.

    it really does has hdr it's just not built in as a feature ......yet

    but there's a app that gives the ipod 4g hdr ability (it's called "true hdr" for $2) all you do is take a pic, go to the app and select the same pic 2 times to make it HDR, works really well...heres some original vs hdr pics i took with the 4g

    Highlights are still blown, shadows have about the same detail. That's not HDR, you could get the same effect in Levels, etc. But if you like it, more power to you.
