    I haven't checked it out on the ipad but that is a common feature of all cameras. If you went back to your old 35mm and took careful notice of what you saw in the view finder and then (after the trip to the drugstore for developing) looked at the picture you would see that the picture is slightly more. Same with video cameras. You didn't notice it then because you had to go print the picture and the opportunity was gone. It is just something you have to account for.

    I took some video with my camera phone (Motorola Cliq II) as well as video camera (Sony Nex Gen 2) and didn't notice any extra space in the shot. I agree that with older cameras this was the norm, but with newer devices I don't see why it would be an issue.

    Yeah, I noticed that.

    Whilst in camera mode, if you switch between photo and video recording mode you can clearly see that the screen image zooms in a few levels when video is selected. Which, as you say, doesn't 'fully' reflect what you're actually capturing on the screen.

    It's not a big deal for me because the iPad is not my primary camera for either photo or movie capture, but it still does beg the question, why was it setup this way? Perhaps the video image zoom level is linked to the front face-time camera or something like that?

    In any case, I'm still absolutely loving the new iPad and use it constantly, it's truly a remarkable machine.

    Ps. I've answered your question here, but see that you've started multiple threads on this topic.
