  1. if itunes will play while recording video, I can see this being used by many people for music videos…. it would be easy to put in-ears on an artist and shoot wirelessly. I know that for quick and dirty work, it would make syncing the stuff up much easier when i go from the green screen to the editing station.

  2. I think this is the iPod that finally sucks me in…the combination of the App Store, 2 cameras, onboard video editing et al has me thinking of using this as a VERY capable flash recorder…now I have to check out whether or not the Blue iPod add-on will work with this!!!!
