When capturing HD video the iPhone 4 holds more information per frame than the iPad is capable of displaying on its 1024 x 768 IPS screen. This means that iPhone 4 video look gorgeous. Surprisingly this mostly holds true even when viewing iPhone 4 HD footage via YouTube on the iPad either through a browser or the YouTube app. In our experience YouTube HD footage looks a lot nicer on the iPad than it does using Flash on a PC or Mac - something to keep in mind if you intend to shoot a lot of iPhone 4 footage.

At present there is one missing ingredient. iOS 4 currently has no option for uploading HD footage straight from the iPhone 4 to YouTube. Steve Jobs, in one of his midnight e-mailing sessions, has promised to fix this in a forthcoming update, but until then you can always use the rather lovely Pixelpipe app.

UPDATE: Hmm, looks like YouTube is acting up. It has played back fine on the iPad, but at the moment it seems to be showing up as unplayable.
