    Hi friends,

    My business client who lives in a less advanced country in Asia has asked me to buy him a Camcorder (I am in the USA) for him to take home videos of his kids growing up, family time etc.

    I was wondering how the VIDEO RECORDING QUALITY of the IPAD 2 is? Would it compare to a mid range Canon/Sony Camcorder?

    Do you think the IPAD 2 is a good VIDEO recording substitute as it offers so much more at the cost of portability?

    I appreciate your advice as I need to purchase either the camcorder or the IPAD 2 this weekend.

    Thanks so much,

    desidude

    Don't use the iPad. It's videos are, quite frankly, horribly. And, it's incredibly awkward to hold.

    Don't get him an iPad....a mid or even low end digital camcorder is going to beat the iPads video capabilities into a pulp.

    Look at the JVC Everio range...I still have one of the top end ones with the memory cards ( it has two slots for continuous recording) and I still use it.

    Can't remember the exact price, but it wasn't as much as an iPad 2 with 64GB that's for sure.

    A google search or amazon should help you decide.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    I will skip the IPAD2 option as a substitute to the Camcorder!
