To iPad, or not to iPad?
I'm thinking about purchasing an iPad specifically for use as a filmmaking tool. I've seen the Paper app used pretty effectively as a storyboard tool. Then I look at my hand drawn crumpled up storyboards that barely make it through production in one piece and wonder, "what if I had one of those iPad things?"
Of course, I also see that they can be used as a slate and a teleprompter. Interesting, but I'm not sure I'd use it as either very often.
So, what's the consensus in the room? Is the iPad a valuable filmmaking tool, or just a cool thing I can use to make people assume I'm cool too?
