New iPad Video Camera Tested With Prototype Padcaster Rig [Video]
Josh Apter & Peter Olsen from peteandjoshmakemovies have posted a video shot with the new iPad and a custom designed video rig called 'The Padcaster'.
Completely by accident, I began shooting, cutting & distributing interviews with the iPad 2 at a convention I attended in Las Vegas last year. Since then, I've been working on a simplified video rig for the iPad. I figured even with the crappy camera in the iPad 2, it was still worth it as an all-in-one interview machine. I called the little movies "Padumantaries" and dubbed the rig, "The Padcaster." Needless to say I am overjoyed at what Apple unveiled a little over a week ago.
And this is what Pete and I shot on the iPad 3 with the latest "Padcaster" prototype, a 35mm lens adapter and some other goodies too. A little test on the first day of Spring and some good news for people like us, who've been desperately trying to force video to look like film.
Check out the video to see the iPad 3 and the Padcaster in action. No further details on the video rig have been provided; however, you can check out the link below for more information when it becomes available.
