With less that optimum light, the still photos taken by the 4G iPod are poor, like the ones yuo posted. The 4G does not have good camera.

Thanks, but I've looked through the forums and I've done all this several times in the past year for different reasons and never noticed a camera improvement. I don't really need to take it to the genius bar because I will be getting a 5th gen in a few weeks. I was just wondering if there was a problem with it. I literally watch over 5 different videos my friend filmed that we actually surprisingly good for an iTouch 4g camera. Like I said, I've watched camera comparisons that show photos taken with an iTouch 4g and the look better than mine. I've seen concerts that were filmed with a 4g as well and also look presentable. Even in broad daylight, the photos look terrible compared to other 4g's. I don't really know why, either. Does anyone else take photos that look this horrible. Post some if you do, thanks!
Was the picture of the tree taken outdoors? Or anywhere else where there was a breeze? Because of the low light the exposure is a lot longer than in a bright light situation. The lights on the tree therefore move with the wind during the time that the shutter is open and this could cause the blurring. This did not happen in your other picture because the objects were static.
