    Default Can't delete .mov file loaded onto ipad from camera

    I just bought a Nikon S8100 camera, it can shoot video as well. I shot a couple of test videos, and left it in 1080p mode. I used my camera kit to connect it directly to my iPad, and uploaded the pictures I had taken, and the two videos. They all load into the Photos app on the iPad, but the videos won't play. I figured out that the format was not supported on the iPad. When I lower the resolution to 720p or lower, it will play on the iPad, and can be managed there. My problem is that I can't figure out how to DELETE the 2 .mov files I initially loaded. When I am in the Photos app, the thumbnail just say "MOV". Unlike every other item, this one I cannot select, so I can't delete. I've tried syncing through iTunes and accessing my iPad files that way, but there does not seem to be an option there to delete.
