With a gentle flick of the wrist, the rear-facing camera is free and ready to pass inspection alongside its cousin, the iPhone 6 camera...

For your viewing pleasure: the 8 MP iPhone 6 camera (left) and the 8MP iPod Touch camera (right).

Physical size serves as a pretty accurate indicator of relative quality. Despite the equal pixel count, the Touch's camera lacks some of its cousin's finer features, such as the sapphire crystal lens cover and auto image stabilization.

The Touch's ƒ/2.4 aperture also falls short of the 6's ƒ/2.2.

File away this X-ray image of the iPod's primary camera. If rumors can be believed, the next iPhone may far outshine the sensor seen here.
