The hail didn't materialize, but it was quite the light show...
I've mentioned before I am a weather enthusiast and what better way to test out the iPad mini's HD video recording than shoot some lightning? My thoughts exactly!
This is pretty much a typical storm here...got a few tenths of an inch of rain, but really enjoyed the lightning!
I was on the porch, in the dark, and had never shot video with it before...You can barely hear me, but what I say isn't too important...That also helps keep the emphasis on the lightning and the iPad mini's capability!
I was pretty impressed with it, although the sound pickup/mic isn't super great...Then again, maybe my hand was in front of it? I haven't had it long enough to check...I did record this with the plastic still on so that might have lessened the quality slightly.
Nonetheless, I was happy to break the mini in with such a great light show!
