iPod Nano Shoots Video?

iPod Nano

Yes, I can read the specs…

H.264 video, up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; H.264 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats; MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
Yadda, Yadda, Yadda… If that’s all meaningless jargon to you the real test is how it looks – simple as that.

So let’s see how it compares. I just happened to have both my older Flip Ultra II and my new iPod nano handy and captured the exact same moment (post big game Stanford vs. Cal). I held both side by side and here’s the same video output from both.

First the new kid on the block.
Details: The new iPod nano 8GB, approx cost $140 – holds 8 hrs of video.

And now here’s the same video from my Flip Ultra II, which has been literally tossed, dropped, and thrashed for a couple of years now.
Details: Bought this refurbished on eBay for under $60 - holds 30 minutes of video.

To be fair, this isn’t a complete test. It was one instance at one point in time. The next test would be low light, low ambient noise, as well as yet another one in daylight.

So what do you think?
