Glyn Evans, who writes the wonderful iPhoneography blog, is excited about the new, fifth-generation iPod touch, which comes with a 5-megapixel camera that supports HDR image capture and the new Panorama shooting mode. Evans believes that it opens up the world of iPhoneography to those who don’t own or don’t want to buy an iPhone. On his blog Evans writes: “…whilst this new Touch may not offer a physical zoom lens like a traditional point and shoot digital compact camera (neither does the iPhone), with such a vast array of photo taking, editing and sharing apps, I think this new Touch will appeal to many people both young and old.” Read the full story at Giga OM.
