    Went for a ride to shoot a bit of video today as a test for the forum uploading capabilities of the iPad I got for Christmas.

    This is an old road in rural Blount County near Skyball Mountain.

    So... Here goes :deal

    Nah, he's just testing the Ipad to except the video from his helmet cam. Then uses the Ipad to post to ADVrider.

    ...And a Happy New Year to ya!

    I shot the video using a Contour HD helmet cam, then downloaded the video to my iPad, uploaded to YouTube from the iPad, then used the YouTube video editing feature to trim and paste three video clips into one video with transitions.

    What iPad did you end up going with? Mine shipped two days ago :evil. I'm hoping to do the same with the Hd Go Pro and the iPad. Thanks!!

    Got me a 16g - the 3G. The keyboard takes some getting used to, but otherwise, it's awesome. Love the mobility.

    FYI - Apple makes a wireless full size keyboard that synchs perfectly with the ipad or iphone. :D

    I love my iPad but haven't tried to do anything that "intense" with it like uploading videos. For more serious stuff, I picked up an 11.6" MacBook Air.
