As much as I love Copy.com, videos are big files to upload and if you're travelling someplace where you are reliant on paid Internet cafes or otherwise don't have access all the time to fast, stable Wi-Fi, using a cloud service to store the videos may not be the best idea. If this isn't going to be an issue, then by all means grab some copy.com love, even if you only use it to backup those valuable video files!
Because you're shooting video, I'm going to suggest you spring for the 32GB iPad. Video takes up a lot of space, since it shoots natively in HD resolution. I'd also suggest you use a video editor to trim your footage to just the good stuff each day, so you have a) less to upload and b) more room for more footage later.
Also, I believe that Notability
is an app that lets you both record audio AND type simultaneously. It's designed for classroom use, primarily, but its handy.
When I write in Pages or some other word processor, I tend to use Voice Dictation which means you can't simultaneously write and record, but for my purposes, it saves me a lot of time even though I'm a pretty fast typist.
Geez, remember when knowing what your WPM score was an important thing?
