iLounge has just posted a new gallery of images comparing the camera capabilities of the iPhone 4 to that of the new fourth-generation iPod touch. Notably, the iPhone 4’s camera is a five-megapixel shooter while the fourth-gen touch’s camera is designed primarily for capturing 720p HD video, cutting off the sides of the 1280×720 sensor when shooting stills, resulting in 960×720 stills and a greatly reduced effective width. In addition, a pair of videos have been added to our Vimeo account comparing the video capabilities of the iPhone 4 to those of the iPod touch 4G.

  1. I agree with aj. The difference is acceptable, i would say. However, to be competitive in the market these days, apple’s choice should have been at least a 2MegaPixel camera. A 5MegaPixel would hit the spot… but like i’ve said,.. it’s acceptable but x x x

  2. It would have been nice if the photos had been more carefully labeled and the video shot with some real audio (not just wind noise). Oh well.

  3. Definitely a quality hit for the touch, but it is better than nothing. For grabbing impromptu pics where I didn’t think to bring my real camera (which is better than any iPod/iPhone camera), I will appreciate the option.

  4. I agree, there is noticeable loss in photo quality in the iPod Touch in comparison to the iPhone 4; However, the difference in video quality isn’t too noticeable.

  5. I agree with cv, you need to update to descriptions for each photo. They all say both iPod and iPhone.

    Also, we need to see some low-light samples of each device. 🙂

  6. Appreciate your doing this, but… (yeah, we’re armchair critics all right!).

    The pictures were not done at the same scale or position–they should be to make the comparison right.

    The gallery should be one page showing all the pictures–and labelled clearly! That would make it easier to compare them.

    Adding landscape and person portraits would have been helpful as those are what people often use their cameras for.

    Hope you can do another round of comparisons with those features in mind!

    As it stands, this is too thin a reed, alas, to draw any conclusions. I’m not looking for iPhone quality, just better than my cheap cell phone camera!

  7. Its a simple marketing strategy, in this year apple lauch ipod camera, the next year surely apple will lauch a more resolution camera with flash led… the iphone is the way…

  8. Apple usually is targeting teens who are using the ipod touch for using photos for facebook ect. People really could care less because it looks great online but it wont be super mega high quality. I mean you’ve probably been begging apple for this camera and well, they gave it to yah. Personally I think it’s a great camera for such a small device. Even if the camera bums you out you have all the new feature included with the new iPod touch

  9. i reackon that the ipod touch with camera is nicee u can take pictures and doo all kinds of stuff and can any one answer my question .. umm… does the iphone4 have face timeee realiii
