New iPod nano w/ video recording - September 11, 2009, 10:18 AM

So I just read Apples latest email regarding the iPod nano with it's new video recording feature and of course I began to wonder how well it would shoot video while riding.

For $180 you can get the 16GB version (roughly 14 hours or video; 640x480 @ 30fps). I am unsure if there is a video clip 'cap' limiting the videos to a specific amount of time.

Now, from what I've read, you get near 5 hours of 'video playback' which I'd imagine is very close to that of recording time; from experience, you should should be able to have it charging while using it at the same time.

Like the iPhone/iPod touch, I am sure there will be many hard cases with camera-lens covers and adapters (I'm sure some cases will over 'wide angle' lens covers).

So, if you've added this all up like myself you might see what I'm getting at...

a cheap ($150-$180) video recorder with the capability of running off the motorcycles power and recording 7-14 hours of video, all in a sleek/slim case that when covered can protect it from debris and allow you to tape/mount it to anything.

I guess the next thing would be to see how well the video looks when it's mounted to a vibrating object.

Thoughts?

Unfortunately, it seems to use a CMOS video sensor meaning you may get the 'jelly'/rolling shutter look with it is moved around.

If it has a hard drive in it, I won't touch it.

I agree but it's the same as most other PVR's (gopro, flip, etc).

My FlipHD is 720p and a good chunk of these cameras from Kodak, Vado, Countour, are 720p as well. The latest crop of these cameras are 1080p. My flip HD 720p cost me ~$100.

I do agree with you (I have a flip ultra non-HD) but the flip has it's downsides that the ipod does not; limited to 60 minutes of video (depending on the model you get) and you're stuck using AA batteries without the option of running it off a power source.

Now yes, I pretty much prefer my Flip as a form of recording on the bike since it also has the ability to screw on to a base (the nano does not). But my ultra is rather bulky and only records 1 hour of video.
