nano_cameraApple introduced a new video camera-enabled iPod nano today. New nano owners will be able to record up to eight or 16 hours of video, depending on whether they opt for the 8 or 16GB version. You won’t have to squint quite as much to review your footage, either, thanks to the new 2.2-inch 240×376 pixel TFT display. Video will record at 640×480 pixels, at up to 30 FPS. It’ll be H.264 VGA formatted with AAC audio.

It’s not HD, but it’s also much smaller and cheaper than Flip’s HD offerings. Flip’s SD cameras offer similar quality to the new iPod nano, at the same price as the 4GB model, but without the media player functions, and with far, far less onboard storage.

Video can also be recorded with a variety of iSight-style special effects and filters, including Sepia, Motion Blur, Mirror, etc. Once synced with your Mac via iPhoto, it’s easy to share and publish your recordings to Facebook, MobileMe, and YouTube automatically, without any third-party conversion required.

That was just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to new Nano features, get the full scoop on all of today’s Apple news over at The Apple Blog.

    This post has left me puzzled re your price comparison.

    Right now I am looking at Flip Ultra Standard def at £64.95 on Amazon UK
    and the lowest spec 8gb Ipod nano also standard definition at £115 on the Apple Store UK
