    Question iPad footage

    I recently shot a 50min long clip of an event in iPad and it turned out to be a whopping 9GB in size. Is this just how iPad is it creates large file sizes and anyway for me to bring that file size down.

    this is normal. Most camera will do the same thing if you take video at high-res for 50 min. If you want it smaller, you need use lower resolution. Not sure if you can do that on iPad.

    You may have to use an editing app to compress the video.

    So if you're trying to broadcast a live event through an iPad or an iPhone with one of those free services that allow you to do this, then will it work with HD or do you have to lower the resolution. But I am pretty sure they do HD video broadcasting through such services as well. I presume the issue will be the WIFI connection will be the bottle neck I guess for HD video you will need wired broad band connection.

    They may compress it on the fly....or drop pixels from the broadcast....transmitting 9 GB via wifi is not going to be something any free service is going to want to do.

    I think the front camera is lower res...
