Since the first Flip Video proposed by Pure Digital Technologies along with the digital camcorder to shoot videos in MP4 format, as computer compatible file, more and more models are designed just like Flip Video UltraHD. Sony recently announced Sony Bloggie Touch (MHS-TS10, MHS-TS20) as a new model in 2010.
Sony Bloggie Touch MHS-TS20 is similar to MHS-TS10, but more 4GB for internal Flash Memory. Sony Bloggie Touch includes 3.0" touch screen with Exmor CMOS Sensor to capture 1920x1080 and 1280x720 full HD videos in MP4 with MPEG-4 AAC as video compression. After capturing videos in 1080p for your journey, do you want to transfer Bloggie Touch flip videos to iPad with no quality loss?
From the Apple official site for iPad, we could see that iPad supports videos in MP4, M4V and MOV with H.264 as video codec, up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio. Thus, the MP4 format from Sony Bloggie Touch is compatible with iPad, but not the 1080p resolution. Aunsoft Video Converter is what I found as the perfect converter for the January model Sony Bloggie MHS-CM5.
