    So I had my iPad 2 for more than a half a year, and to be honest, one of the reasons why I bought the iPad 2 was because of it's video recording capability and iMovie.

    But as all know, iPad 2 Camera is pretty terrible under low light condition.

    I figured, okay, how well does it perform under a large amount of light? So I took it outside. The result? Hmm, pretty decent. See for yourselves.

    Nothing wrong with that, great video. Brought back memories for me, we were there 6 years ago, the skate board park wasn't there at the time, although they were doing some major works, maybe that's what it was. I'll have to try mine, thank you for sharing!!

    Really think you did a great job on the video, I was wondering if I was the only person that thought that way. Everything that I have taken outside or in good light has come out great. Also if you want to use iMovie for editing, taking the video with the iPad works much better than trying to convert some other video format to get iMovie to work.

    I do like the video... Thanks!

    Thank you! glad you liked it.

    Yeah, give it some time and try shooting outdoors. Camera is great, but you might be pulling some of your hair out while editing...

    You're welcome. Venice Beach is regardless still ghetto and dirty, but it's got style.

    iMovie definitely isn't a top notch editing software, but it does its job. I don't think anyone would want to use iPad to edit using iMovie though. Thanks for watching!


    Thank you so much!
