Video Shootout: iPod Nano VS Flip SDSep 12th, 2009 | By James Lewin | Category: iPods & Portable Media Players
Chris Albrecht (NewTeeVee) made this side-by-side comparison of the video quality of the iPod nano vs the Flip SD.
“Overall â€” the Flip offered a MUCH better picture both indoor and out, providing way more detail in the image,” notes Albrecht. “The Flip microphone was also a little more discerning in our test, able to distinguish our subjectâ€™s voice in a crowded room much better than the Nano.”
The video quality of the new iPod nano is clearly inferior to the Flip, but it may not matter. With 8GB Nanos starting at $149, buyers are likely to see the Nano’s video camera as a freebie.
