This is a simple landscape view video test of the new iPad (aka iPad 3). It uses the same ageing camera sensor chip as the iPhone 4 (the 2010 OmniVision 5650) but inherits the improved lens assembly from the iPhone 4s.

This 30 second static panorama clip was recorded using Filmic Pro at 25fps, extreme data rate (came in at 50 Mb/s). I used Handbrake to crop it vertically to 816 pixels and re-compress it using the High Profile (h.264) preset with RF=20. The result (download from the link below) is a little under 3 Mb/s but the slight visible mush and noise appears practically identical to the 50 Mb/s original.

I over-exposed the scene and will try again tomorrow!

All comments welcome.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
