Well that's the deal isn't it? All these people touting professional uses for consumer gadgets don't go out and practice what they preach.

"Oh, I use an iPhone here and there when there's not other option for the footage I want to use."

There is no reason why you can't shot an entire project using an iPhone and editing it on iMovie on the iPad...except for the fact that it won't look or sound that great. But I thought "just good enough" was the mantra here? YouTube taught us that, hasn't it? It just has to be "good enough", "content is what matters" yadda yadda yadda. So why don't people shoot with the iPhone as their "A" cam? Sure it doesn't have highlights, lots of jello, not much in the way of manual controls, but so what? Isn't it good enough? Why aren't more people who make their money from editing/shooting/ect. editing projects on iMovie on the iPad? Sure it can't do that much, but can't it get you to "good enough"?
