TV station tests iPad 2 against traditional TV camera

Interested to see how the new iPad 2 stacked up against the station's traditional news cameras, Mobile's WKRG sent web reporter Lauren Styler out to shoot a news package with the popular tablet. Styler was joined by photographer Gary Arnold, who simultaneously shot the package using one of the station's Panasonic P2 cameras.

"The P-2 won hands down in quality of course," Mike Rausch, WKRG's director of digital journalism, told TVSpy via email.  "But, I believe the iPad 2 has great potential, once it can be tethered to the emerging 4G networks and then has the potential to be used for live breaking news."
