    Default Footage of Gas Main Explosion Edited in Four Minutes using iPhone and iPad


    Geek Squad founder, Robert Stevens was driving to work the other day, when he witnessed a giant fireball in the sky. Apparently, a gas line exploded in St. Paul Minnesota and he was able to shoot video of the event as he drove by. Luckily, he had his iPhone 4 with him and was able to drive and shoot video at the same time.

    After shooting the video he pulled into a local drug store parking lot and transferred the iPhone footage to his iPad 2 using Apple's camera connection kit. He then edited the video using the latest version of iMovie and added a voiceover. Later he tweeted, “That video shot on iPhone4, copied to iPad2 via camera connection kit, and edited in 4 minutes with the new iMovie.”

    After uploading the footage to YouTube and CNN’s iReport, other news agencies soon began requesting permission to use the footage as well. "I'm not a journalist, but I was quickly working with major news organizations," Stephens said. "That's why I tweeted permission." "It was iPhone to connection kit to iPad to iMovie to CNN."

    After the incident he later said, “I wouldn't have gotten so close to the explosion.” If not for his quick thinking and Apple gear, the world might have missed this dramatic event. Luckily, no one was hurt as a result of this explosion.

    Wow that looks like an interesting drive to work. I wonder if he got paid by all the news agencies.

    Well I don't see the point of transferring it to the iPad, the editing could have been done on the iPhone4 as well.

    This can all be done on iPhone 4, why do u need the iPad 2 to edit movies, everyone should get "ReelDirector" - way better then iMovie !!!!

    So what???????????????????

    People with substandard video cameras have been submitting video of news events for more than a decade now to news agencies. Professionals with broadcast quality cameras can't be on every street corner in America to record things like this.

    The article is written like the guy invented the wheel. Yeah, technology is great. Anyone can shoot video with a cell phone, hook it up to whatever other device to edit their substandard video and then send it to whatever agency accepts video tips from whomever.

    The guy could at least park and get a reasonably still shot of the fire.

    I believe there's laws about "no texting while driving".
    Good thing he wasn't texting!

    I live less than 20 blocks away. I'm glad no one was hurt and it was only a gas line and not terrorist or other horrible behaviors.
