MP3 cameras

I do not have a smart phone nor do I have a strong desire in getting one. However, I want instagram!

I believe that you can get instagram on the itouch and galaxy mp3 players. I couldn't find that much information on the new itouch (5th generation) camera except that it is a 5 megapixel camera.

Anyone know how this camera stacks up to the iphone cameras? Or better yet, any samples?

As an alternative I believe samsung makes galaxy mp3s too. Any samples of those?

I believe that the cameras on the phone counterparts to both of these players are better.

I know I'm better off getting a Canon S100, Ricoh GRD, etc. but I always have my MP3 player on me so getting a camera-enabled mp3 player makes more sense to me. I have my MP3 player on me more than my phone, actually.

If I do dive in and get an iphone, how do the cameras compare between the 4, 4s, and 5. To tell you the truth, the camera is the most important part of the phone to me so if the cameras were identical then I'd get the cheapest.

To paraphrase Will Rodgers: I only know what I read on the web.

You might give this a look: http://www.steves-digicams.com/news/...are_issue.html

It appears that in some ways the camera in the iPhone 5 is rather inferior to the earlier models.

The MP3 doesn't do Instagram.

On the apple side: Itouch does for sure.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/insta...389801252?mt=8

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

I'm not 100% sure on the android mp3 players but I see no reason why they wouldn't.

Yes, a confusing title to the thread!
