1. The iPad 2’s 10 inch screen is enough for reviewing homemade videos right on the spot. 1. You could have been able to include the video clips shot and imported from other cameras into the iPad. However they don’t work in iMovie without going through a serious effort.
2. With Apple’s $4.99 iMovie app, video programs like ReelDirector and Splice, you can turn the title productions into mini video postcards. Then it is very easy to get them right onto FaceBook directly from your iPad 2. If you are travelling some where you do not have to wait until you get home. 2. iPad 2 disadvantages as a video capturing device are no flash, no zoom and it is bulky. So it does not fit well into my pocket. There is no tripod mount for it, therefore the finished video is quite shaky and unsteadiness is much more noticeable on the large screen.
3. iPad 2 as a video capturing device has big advantages like a huge screen, instant gratification, exceptional video quality in good light. 3. You can not create high quality videos that you can do with cameras like cameras from cannon, Nikon, Sony and Panasonic etc. They have features like Flash, zoom, tripod mounts, removable memory and better lenses that is not present in iPad 2. In iPad 2 videos can not be sharper and crisper like in Cannon PowerShot S95and other cameras.
4. However the major advantage of iPad 2 is that it has huge tablet screen for monitoring the video. It has add-on features that people love about iPad such as web browser and all other apps. Plus you can not make a video in cameras like cannon, edit it right there on the spot, click a button and sent it directly to FaceBook, but you can do it with iPad 2.
