Adding Effects to Your Videos on Your iPod nano

Before you start shooting your video, you can apply some special effects, like Black & White, Sepia, X-Ray (I can’t imagine why), Cyborg (cooler than you’d think), Film Grain, Thermal, Security Cam, and then some that get downright...well...let’s just say you’d probably only apply these to videos of people you don’t like (stuff like Bulge, Kaleido, Motion Blur, Mirror, Light Tunnel, Dent, Stretch, and Twirl). The thing to keep in mind is you have to choose an effect before you start shooting—you don’t get to add these after. To bring up the list of effects, first choose Video Camera from the main menu, then press-and-hold the Center button until they appear onscreen. Use the Click Wheel to look at a live preview of the different effects. When you find one you want, select it and press the Center button. Now, you’re ready to start filming, and that effect will be applied to your video (but only for this one video. If you want to use that effect again on the next video, you have to press-and-hold the Center button again, scroll to it, and select it again).
