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.
Adding to the fun are 15 video effects that 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.
A musical Genius
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 (up to 12 different mixes). 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. 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 it like a salt shaker
You want to 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.
Pause live radio
Not only does the new FM tuner let you see the names of songs and artists, but two other amazing features”iTunes Tagging and Live Pause”make listening to the radio nothing like listening to the radio.
Say you need to take a quick break from listening to your favorite radio station. With the Live Pause feature, iPod nano lets you put the music on hold 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.
What about those times when you're listening to a song you like and later on you go to can't remember the name of the artist or the song. With iTunes Tagging, you'll never have to worry again. Just 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 later to your iTunes.
With VoiceOver you'll never hear your music in the same way again. Say you're listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. With the press of a button, VoiceOver tells you without interrupting your music. It's a simple and clever way to navigate your collection. VoiceOver also tells you the names of your playlists, so you can easily switch between them to find the right mix for your mood.
Your iPod nano is designed not only to talk, but to say the right things. How is this possible? 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 with your computer and it really speaks to you.
After you sync your iPod nano, the voice you hear depends on which computer system you use. If you sync your iPod nano with a PC or with a Mac running Mac OS X Tiger, you'll hear the English voice included in the VoiceOver Kit. Since Mac OS X Leopard and Snow Leopard have an amazing built-in English voice, that's the voice you'll hear when you sync your iPod nano with a Mac running one of those operating systems.
However, like most people your music library probably has songs from all over the world”a love song from France, a bolero from Spain, or a pop tune from Japan. Luckily, VoiceOver speaks fluent song in 20 languages. iTunes will select 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.
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. With the addition of your music, this makes iPod nano the ideal exercise partner.
The built-in mic lets you capture a thought, a reminder, a class lecture, or any audio recording you want with Voice Memos.

I bought this as an addition/upgrade to my other ipods, I have a touch and a 1st gen nano (which as been great, and still kicking). I thought about buying the 6th gen but considering its price and lack of features compared to this 5th gen, I had to go for the 5th gen. My only complain would be the battery life, but I guess all ipods are like that. It's cool looking and up to now seems scratch resistant, although I'll be buying a cover for it still.
