iPad mini camera creates mesmerizing video
On a recent flight while in Southeast Asia we boarded a regional commuter flight and I was fortunate enough to sit close to the turbo-prop of this aircraft. I decided to pull out my iPad mini and shoot some stills and video. I knew the camera in the iPad is not like your normal camera that captures an image instantaneously but rather behaves like a tabletop scanner or photocopier. So imagine when your camera is scanning the scene from top to bottom (which it does very fast) but the image itself is also moving very fast. You get some very cool results.
