My question is...with the iPad 3....will you FINALLY be able to transfer HD 1080p video shot with a canon dslr like the T3i to the ipad via the Apple cam kit....and then BE ABLE TO EDIT THAT VIDEO IN IMOVIE?!!!! Lol

Thats all i wanna know. Love my ipad 1st gen....but skipped the ipad 2nd gen cause it couldnt do this. I am a photographer/videographer/blogger who travels alot, and I LOVE the form factor of the ipad and all it does.

But this is the one sticking point for me. I know there will always be things a laptop or desktop can do that an ipad isnt meant for....however...Tim Cook keeps stressing about a "Post PC world"....and this is a real world application. People shoot high quality video with dslrs and would like to edit that video while on the road. It seems like the umbilical cord has been cut btwn the ios devices and computers with the icloud and syncing....but not being able to load and edit video directly onto your ipad keeps the device stuck in the umbilical cord days. I find it very annoying.

The new retina display and faster speed make it the perfect device to edit videos while on the road.


You can do this, they updated iMovie a few months ago to support this.

Just a heads up, apparently you can't run iPhoto on the iPad 1:

"Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G.Requires iOS 5.1 or later."

Didn't want someone to buy it over the desktop iTunes and then find out after the fact.

Thank you for mentioning it. You just saved me wasting some money.

This is bloody annoying. If you try to install it on an iPad 1st Gen it produces a pop-up stating that you need a front facing camera - Why /

Are we expected to believe that all the photos used in the Apple demo were taken on an iPad ? No, of course not - they were up loaded onto the iPad the same as the 1000's on mine, - so why can't I have use of the app ?

I'd say the "front facing camera" requirement is Apple-speak for "the iPad 1 is far too crippled in the RAM department for you to even think about running this app. But lol, as if we're just going to come right out and say that".
