I want to buy a camera which records HD videos like this DSC-WX7 : W Series : Digital Still Camera : Sony India

While browsing the net I also came across ipod touch 4G Apple (India) - iPod touch - Now in white. It has fun written all over it. which supports HD recording .

Now I am divided what to buy .. The ipod solves my music woes because my old 20 gb ipod got stolen and also records HD vids ..

Is HD video recording good in the ipod touch ??


Please suggest .. :blink:

Budget - 10 to 15k

apply logic. ipod touch has a shitty camera. even if it does record video in hd... it does not have the lens or the sensor or the zooming capabilities of a dedicated camera. if recording videos or taking photos is a priority, get a point and shoot. if music is a priority get the ipod touch. i own a pretty decent camera. pretty old but is still very good. i also own a hd camcorder. but my needs are simple. i end up using the camera on my phone to take 95% of all the photos/videos i shoot. i went for the one x because i wanted a decent camera on my phone. otherwise i was pretty cool with the nexus s. if i were in your position, i would focus on getting a decent point and shoot... and buy an ipod shuffle or a similar device.

I agree with Sushubh. An ipod is a disgrace to HD videos!

Since you have a budget of 15k, let me recommend THIS.Its retailing at 15-16k.

Its decent, but there are a huge number of improvements in the one I suggested. Esp the zoom (o & d) and the manual settings that it cnan take.

Do go through the comparison
