This review is from: Apple iPod nano with Camera 8GB - Black - 5th Generation (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Okay, so i thought there wasnt much more that apple could do to improve the nano; how i was wrong. The new nano has some major changes incorporated into the new model : fm tuner, pedometer and camera as well as the voiceover technology that has recently appeared on the new shuffles.
The new incorporated camera is great for shooting video. It does so recording onto VGA and the itunes will automatically keep 200mb of space free to shoot some video. The camera is placed on the bottom left opposite side to the front of the unit, and is a smallish lens. There are also 16 modes which can be used to create some effects instead of normal old video. However, the camera will not let you take still images!
The new fm radio transmitter is great for radio on the go, and with an added feature of allowing you to pause live radio! However, this will eat into storage capacity on the ipod, which can be annoying if you have little left to spare.
The new pedometer system on the ipod works with nike+ which will help collaborate the data which can be later viewed on your pc (or mac)to monitor your exercise. It allows you to set goals to help you try and achieve them.
All the ipod nano range has received a paint job, with brighter paint being used, which makes them look a lot better than the 4th generation.

Not a radio transmitter... a receiver... A transmitter, like the Nokia N97, would have been a huge bonus but probably too big a drain on the battery...
