Never owned an Ipod before. What one should I get? - August 9th 2015, 09:06 PM

Hello!

I hope you're having a groovy day.

I know nothing. There. I said it. About iPods anyway. [I know all there is to know about everything else though!! haha ]

I want to make videos of ME [for the most part] and post those videos to YouTube. I'm thinking iPod-something. But I don't know. Would it be easy to do? Or would something else be better? Any ideas would be helpful. And please be specific. [i.e. the exact model you would recommend. Whether or not I would need a separate microphone, or headphones, a carrying case or whatever] Also - I can't afford to spend more than about $250 U.S. or so.

Thank you!
Craig!

You would need an iPod Touch, an iPad or an iPhone. As far as which size too get it depends on how much you plan on putting on it. I just have an 8GB iPod Touch and iPhone, both work great for me.

I'm pretty sure the only way to get an ipod 4 is over ebay or something like that. It isn't as good as the 5. The camera quality is better on 5 so if you were wanting to put things on youtube the 5 would be best. BUT... They are more expensive than the 4 which is probably the only one you would be able to get for under $250. You could always look at online shopping sites and see if anyone sells them for under normal price, maybe second hand or something. Second hand ones are still the same just cheaper. This probably doesn't help but oh well. I commented anyway haha

Are you looking for the mobility aspect? I mean do you want to be able to record something say at the park or the store? Or do you want to be recording only in your house? Because if you're not planning on recording in different areas, you could always use a webcam for your computer (laptops have them built in and you can get them to attach onto your desktop computer for a decent price.)

You could also use your phone if you have a smart phone that has a front facing camera. Also, you can look to see about a refurbished or second hand iPad as well.

If you do decide on getting an iPod, then the iPod five does have a better camera which do cost more. The Apple website sells refurbished ones but right now there is only iPod fours that are available.

Best Buy, Staples or Walmart may have sales as well.

You're from the same province as me so I linked some of the webpages. I'd check out Kijiji or Craigslist. URL="http://shop.simply.ca/pages/clearance"]Simply Computing[/url] is worth checking out as well. They have refurbished apple products and are pretty fairly priced.

Good luck.

Hey,

I am moving this to technology & gaming since you're asking what specific piece of technology you should buy.

That being said, as far as iPods go, the most recent ones are normally pretty expensive, maybe over $200. I have the 4th generation iPod Touch and camera and video quality aren't honestly that great on it.


Let it come and let it be...

Hiya Craig,

As others have said if you want to buy an iPod to film videos on then you should buy an iPod Touch, if you get an older generation then it will be cheaper and more in your price range. However, if you are just buying an iPod for filming videos to upload them to user then I think that a video camera or a camera that has the option to film might be better suited for the job, because it will be a better quality video. Although you'll have to download your pictures from the SD card to your computer and upload the video to YouTube from your computer, I still think that it may be easier for you as it will also give you the option of editing the videos if you would like to.

I hope that this helps, let me know if you would like any further information on it.
