I always laugh when people do video on their Ipads or Iphones and hold it upright instead of turning it 90 degrees. Why not just shoot your video through a set of half closed closet doors.

I hate these morons (iDiots) with their iPad and iPhones, they have ruined numerous shots, events and concerts for me.

iCloud and Google+ prevent this from being an issue. By the time you get home, the video you shot on your iPhone/Android will be ready to play on your iPad/tablet.

In theory...perhaps. This is assuming a lot.In fact, I think a careful analysis will show this sounds good but does not hold up in many situations.

First, this assumes that you are going home or have a Wi-Fi connection with a fast upload speed. Remember, the video is pretty big - about 1 GB for about 10 minutes. Assuming 100 MB for one minute... the upload is time consuming and the downloading to the iPad is a significant amount of time.

What if you are not around a Wi-Fi connection - you cannot transfer more than 50 MB (or about 30 seconds of video)

Oh, and don't forget the battery. Try to upload 100 MB on Wi-Fi and see how your battery like it.

So.... iCloud may be a solution for some. However, to say "prevent it from being an issue" ? No, just no. At least in 2013.

Ok, I don't imagine too many 10 minute continuous iphone clips at a recital, but your point is valid for large videos. So iCloud has a 50MB limit? WTF? g+ is 1GB for a single video.

Videos like an actual individual kid performance, 4x50m swim relay, or a great soccer play will always be on g+ waiting for me when I get home, and that's over HPSA, not wifi. Many times I share them before the game or performance is over.

My Nexus 4 battery has no difficulties with upload/data usage.

Of course they are annoying not to mention how silly they look. However the person holding up a DSLR trying to video a show is just as annoying to me. If they want to do this then go to the back or find a spot where you don't have people behind you. We seem to have to have this attitude where it is our god given right to record every event that we attend and we seem to do it with total disregard for others there.

Is our complaining about it on an anonymous forum board going to do anything than make us feel better for the moment, nope. Events, whether it is a paid concert or your child's music recital, should be tackling this but I doubt they will. Someone mentioned that brides should announce that no tablet photography allowed but I can't see that working even though it is not a bad idea. The biggest problem I see is some people's selfish nature and not caring about those behind them and generally everyone else just accepting it without complaining to those that can effect change.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I stand by the belief that it's only rude if it intrudes on the experience of others.

If someone is filming a kid's baseball game with one and isn't blocking the view of another person, then it's nobody's business. Why should we get annoyed with people because we don't like what they are doing?


The deeper issue, in my opinion, is the consideration of people around you. If you are driving down a street looking for a particular house, you should consider looking in the rearview mirror to see if you're holding people up.

When walking in a crowded area, pull to the side before stopping to look at a map, etc.

And when carrying any kind of camera, consider people behind you before pulling it out to take a pic.


In most cases we need to just mind our own business. Someone using an iPad to take pictures shouldn't bother you.


Thank you. bw!

If the person in front of you at your kid's recital, etc., is blocking / obstructing your view by holding the iPAD / camcorder / whatever in front of you or by the glare from the screen, just remember... those things record sound, too. If you can figure out which child is theirs, just start a running commentary critical of their kid! :lol:

You must've missed the memo: "Apple is cool."

Apple could launch iToilet and people would be carrying that around to poop. I'm sure it'll have a retina display so you can see your poop in all its glory.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

If people want to take photographs with their iPad/Samsung Tablet / Google tablet, so be it. However it is my personal opinion that they look like a complete moron doing it. Each to their own though. Doesn't impact my life, provides me with a little entertainment but I guess we can be thankful that enough people still wish to record their surroundings and things that are happening etc.

I do take exception to the bright screen in a dark environment problem though. That is something that does annoy me and I would solidly support an outright banning of such devices in a dark environment or in a situation where the device could obscure the view of someone behind. Sadly, the nature of our wonderful species nowadays is that often you cannot even ask the person politely to stop what they're doing as you're likely to get a tirade of insults or even physical threats.


There was one very entertaining occasion thought, when in my city centre, there were some street performers doing their thing. There was a family of both parents and 3 children watching. ALL of them had a combination of iPad's and iPad minis all recording the event. They were all stood side by side so the resulting garbage would have been pretty much identical on each device.
