nano Shoots Video

Video a-Go-Go
iPod nano now has a built-in video camera that lets you record fun as it happens. Then share it with friends on the Internet. It's the video camera that's small enough to take with you everywhere.

Video Recording--a Whole New Way to nano
A quick scroll through the menu takes you to the video camera. Then you're ready to record video in portrait or landscape--perfect for emailing or posting on Facebook or MobileMe. A built-in mic lets you capture audio, too. And when you play back your video on iPod nano, you'll hear the recorded audio with it. All of which means your indispensable music player is now your indispensable video camera.

Special Effects Department Included
Fifteen fun video effects let you add a little Hollywood to your video. Just scroll through, choose the effect you want--such as film grain or motion blur--and start recording. When you're done, sync iPod nano to your computer and iPhoto (or your favorite photo software) opens. Then email your miniblockbuster or post on YouTube or Facebook.

Sync, Share, and Put More You in YouTube
Connect iPod nano to your Mac, and iPhoto opens and syncs all the video you shot on iPod nano to your computer. It's just as easy on a PC when you use your favorite photo software. On a Mac, you can browse and edit your videos in iPhoto, too. The video file sizes are perfect for sharing on YouTube or emailing to friends.

Design Makes Rock More Glam
iPod nano now has a polished anodized aluminum finish in nine electrifying colors. And a larger 2.2-inch color display for your viewing pleasure.

This Is Genius
Control your Genius. Or leave it to its own devices. Either way, Genius explores your library and finds songs that go great together.

Genius Playlists
Say you have one song you really love and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. A few clicks on iPod nano, and Genius uses that song to find other songs in your library and makes a Genius playlist for you. You can listen to the playlist right away, save it for later, or even refresh and give it another go. Count on Genius to create combinations you wouldn't have thought of yourself.

Genius Mixes
Now there's another great way to get a customized set of songs on iPod nano--have Genius do all the work. Introducing Genius Mixes. All you do is sync your iPod nano to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library and finds songs that sound great together to create up to 12 Genius Mixes. These mixes are like channels programmed entirely with your music. It's a great way to rediscover songs you haven't listened to in forever, and some you even forgot you had.

Go with the Cover Flow
View your album art in Cover Flow for a faster way to find the song you want to hear. Or just press and hold the center button to flip the album cover art over so you can see the songs. When you find the right song, press the center button to add it to your on-the-go playlist.

Shake to Shuffle Your Music
Hear songs in a totally random way. Just turn on Shake to Shuffle, then give iPod nano a shake and it shuffles to a different song in your music library. You never know what iPod nano will spin for you next.

Don't Just Listen to the Radio, Pause it and Tag it, Too
The new FM tuner lets you see the names of songs and artists. And two amazing features--iTunes Tagging and Live Pause--make listening to the radio nothing like listening to the radio.

FM Radio--it Gives You Yet Another Way to Rock
There's always something great on the FM dial. And now the FM tuner lets you hear your favorite morning shows on your commute and discover new music while you work out. It even shows you what and who you're listening to.1

With Live Pause, You'll Never Miss a Beat
Say you need to take a quick break from listening to your favorite radio station. iPod nano lets you pause it with a click. Another click and you're listening to your station again. You can even rewind as far back as 15 minutes, then fast-forward to catch up to the live broadcast.

iTunes Tagging--the New-Fashioned Way to Discover Music
It's quite a dilemma: You're listening to the radio and you hear a song you like, but when you go to iTunes, you can't remember the name or even who sings it. Enter iTunes Tagging. Now, you can use the Click Wheel on iPod nano to tag the song. iTunes creates a list of all your tagged songs so you can easily preview or purchase them when you sync iPod nano to iTunes.

VoiceOver--the Talk of the Music World
VoiceOver tells you the title and artist of the songs you listen to. And does it so seamlessly, you'll be surprised at how brilliant it is.

Let's Talk VoiceOver
What if you're listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist? Just use the Click Wheel or the controls on the optional Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic and VoiceOver tells you the song name and who's performing it without interrupting your music. So you're never distracted from your ride or run by looking down at your screen.

The nano now includes an FM radio with iTunes Tagging and Live Pause functions.

Capture a thought, a reminder, a class lecture, or any audio recording you want with Voice Memos.

The new Pedometer counts every step you take. Or add Nike+ shoes and a Nike + iPod Sport Kit for the perfect workout partner.

How it Works
You'll notice how smoothly and easily VoiceOver works. A lot of thought went into creating an iPod nano that not only talks, but says the right things. It all begins with iTunes and its seamless integration with iPod nano. First, iTunes reads your song information, then uses the VoiceOver Kit to generate the announcements for the songs, artists, and playlists. Just sync your iPod nano to your computer and it really speaks to you.

It Speaks Multiple Languages
Your music library has songs from all over the world--a love song from France, a bolero from Spain, a pop tune from Japan. Luckily, VoiceOver speaks fluent song.

iTunes selects the language and best voice for your song titles and artist names. It looks at song data, like the title, artist, and album information, then applies intelligent algorithms to choose the right language. For example, iTunes recognizes the song "Ya Viene el Sol� by Ozomatli as a Spanish song, so your iPod nano will automatically speak that song title and artist in Spanish. If you prefer to hear that information spoken in another language, you can change the designated VoiceOver language for that song in iTunes.

Hit the Ground Running--Or Walking
With the Nike + iPod Sport Kit (sold separately) and a built-in pedometer to help keep you motivated and track your fitness progress, iPod nano makes working out less routine.

Step it up with the New Pedometer
You take your iPod nano with you everywhere. Why not use it to stay fit? iPod nano now doubles as a Pedometer. It uses the built-in accelerometer to keep track of your steps and help you meet your fitness goals. You can create a daily step goal or set it to Always On so it counts all the steps you take, all the time. Which makes iPod nano the ideal exercise partner.

Rock and Run
Your shoes and your iPod nano team up to maximize your run. See the minutes tick by. Watch the miles unfold. Hear real-time voice feedback. All to your favorite music, including your chosen Power Song--that one song that always gets you through the home stretch.

Rock the Gym
Take Nike + iPod to the gym and minute by minute, mile by mile, you're motivated by more than music. Connect your iPod nano to a Nike + iPod compatible cardio machine. Record your pace, time, and distance as you work out. With iPod nano, every trip to the gym becomes a new challenge.

Sync
When you're finished, connect your iPod nano to your Mac or PC. iTunes automatically sends your workout data to nikeplus.com. Every workout and every run is there, ready for you to review. Get pumped for your next run with recommended challenges, custom training programs, and maps of new routes to try. Or share motivation with runners across the world.

Note to Self: Voice Memos Are Here
The built-in mic lets you capture a thought, a reminder, a class lecture, or any audio recording you want with Voice Memos.

iTunes: Your Greatest Hits
It's even easier to organize, browse, grow, and share your digital music and video collection with the new iTunes. And now you can save items with a wish list and enjoy iTunes extras--bonus features on select albums and movies--like lyrics, photos, interviews, and behind-the-scenes media.

After years of resisting the Apple bandwagon, I finally took the plunge and bought an iPod Nano. I have owned three different MP3 players in the past so I was curious to see how the Nano stacked up to the competition.

My first impression of the device was that it's by and large the most attractive player I've ever used. The Nano with its sleek design, lightweight body, and polished exterior is a sheer joy to hold in your hands. It FEELS like a high end product. The larger, high resolution screen is an improvement over the previous generation and allows you to comfortably watch videos without squinting. True, the iPhone and Touch screens are better suited for videos but this is the best size screen for a player of its form factor. It's well-suited for watching short clips, TV shows, and music videos. Watching full-length movies however may asking too much from this little player. Unfortunately it can only read MP4 video files which means I have to convert my existing videos first. That's not a big deal as there are plenty of freeware tools that allow me to easily do just that.

Believe it or not, the biggest feature that compelled me to buy the Nano was the addition of the new FM radio. I listen to NPR throughout the day so having an integrated FM radio was a must for me. The radio has some nice features including RDS support, ability to save favorite stations, and live pause. But I was disappointed in the reception which is no better than my Sansa. It doesn't work well inside of certain buildings and can be spotty at times outdoors. I also wish you could name your saved stations by something other than the frequency number.

I bought the Nano mainly for listening to audiobooks and podcasts.

This was purchased as a used item about 8 months ago and is still working well. I've had another one since it was a new model, and also own the older, simpler Nano 2G, and they both continue to work well with daily use. It's sad that Apple decided to go to that touch screen wristwatch thing, because this was just a wonderful product. The price of used Nano 5's has gone up, so apparently others agree. I own and love the IPOD touch, but its dazzling touch screen is too much for me on a daily basis - I want something that is small and light and gets me easily through my playlists and podcasts, which the Nano does admirably(and with a much longer battery life). It has other toys, like the radio that records and the movie camera, but they stay politely out of the way until you want them. I think I may be talking myself into buying a backup Nano here.....

I like this ipod better than teh newer 6G model since you can still record and view videos and tv shows on it. also the fm radio is nice that they finally added. No problems with the hardware itself so far. Only thing is that itunes is a pain to configure and initially setup and figure out all the options on file format and where the location of your library is. Itunes 10 gave a bad fix for windows sp3 users and screwed up the ipodservice.exe. Had to reload the old version, save the old file and release and copy over hte new file. crazy. Also the accessories like a wall charger are extremely expensive from apple.

the nano seems to be very good. the only negatives for me are 1. you can't delete songs from the unit. must be done on the computer. 2. to increase or decrease sound volume, it must be in the music mode. other that than I'm very satisfied.

Although well designed, this ipod doesn't work very well due to poor quality of fabrication. The earphone jack is defective. You have to wiggle it back and forth to get any sound out. I finally threw away the earphone that came with the ipod and bought one not made or sold by Apple.

Evidently Apple believes that the operation is so intuitive that very little explanation is necessary. Maybe if the unit I bought was well made it would not have been an issue, but I would have appreciated a better manual.

Also, the battery doesn't seem to hold a charge for very long.

I have an RCA MP-3 player that cost a fraction of what the ipod cost. Granted the interface is not as neat as the ipod, but the sound quality of the RCA is just as good as the ipod and it records from FM radio, something I thought the ipod did but apparently doesn't.

I use it for songs and books. It holds it all and it is still working great. If you don't want to spend a lot of money for a good product this is it.

My daughter loves the iPod Nano so was thrilled to find this for her. 16GB is enough room for all her songs with plenty of room to spare. Definitely a great, easy to use model.

It is exactly what I was searching for. The best part was the price. I saw several different one that were not in the same shape for much more money. Deal
