    The iPad has a pretty decent camera. Combine that with iMovie and you have a really good way to produce nice movies. The big problem is the lack of a camera mount. This one is pretty inexpensive, has hotshoes for accessories and adapters for 37 mm ancillary lenses. Me thinks Skip should pick it up.

    I saw something like this on the new iPad commercial this spring. They had it on one of those hand held "steady cam" units filming some waterfalls. Brilliant as my British friends would say!
