There’s no doubt that we’ll be editing video on the iPad in the very near future. Nexvio’s ReelDirector has already brought video editing to the iPhone, so it’s just a matter of time before the iPad gets the royal treatment. But, unlike the iPhone, the iPad has no built-in camera. So, we’re going to need some other way of importing our footage.
Introducing some other way.
Apple is now taking pre-orders for the iPad Camera Connection Kit. For 29 bucks, you’ll get an SD Card reader, along with a USB Camera connector. While this kit is mostly touted as a means of importing photos, it will also import your camera’s video files. So, if you’ve a video camera, or still camera that shoots video, and it has a USB connection, or shoots to SD Memory Cards, there’s a very good chance that this connection kit will allow you to import your video files directly into the iPad. There may be some issues with compatible codecs, but we’ll know for sure soon enough.
Saturday can’t come soon enough.
