Nearly every digital compact these days records movies. But... when's the last time you took advantage of that capability? Here's a little incentive.
You can record movies with your digicam, then move the best of them to your iPod to share with others. It's really simple. You'll need QuickTime Pro, which is a $29 download from Apple (Mac or Windows version). Open your digicam movie in QuickTime Pro, choose File > Export... In the Export popup menu, choose "Movie to iPod." Click Save.
Now all you have to do is drag the iPod movie to iTunes and sync your iPod. You now have home movies with you on the go.
