I know the iPad cameras leave much to be desired but I'm sure someone can come up with some creative ways to take some cool iPad pics. I took one my my wife's grand baby (mine by marriage I guess). I'm posting this with the iPad 2 so I can't upload the pic. I'll send it to and upload it from my Mac.

Seems to be the quality of the earlier iPhones. Not bad,but you can see the noise in the pic.
I know. Even Noiseblaster can't help much. But there are some really cool photo editing apps that can add enough effects to mask the shortcomings of the camera.

Try taking a photo outside in good lighting and compare the difference. Look at the size of the lens, not really made for indoor photos I imagine. Unless your under studio lighting ;)

Are the cameras on the iPad 2 different from those on the iPhone 4?
Yes. The still camera is, for the most part, the same camera on the iPod Touch 4th-gen. That comes out to about ONE megapixel. However, that is good enough to shoot 720p video. So, taking still pictures is vastly inferior to the iPhone 4 but shooting video is as good on the iPad 2.

Wow. What a load of crap for a new product.

No offense guys, but I do not think taking pictures with the iPad was a high priority. I mean think about it, it's 9.7 inches. For the guys who look at only the tech specs, this is going to be an issue. But as far as practical use, I'm not going to be using my iPad 2 to shoot pictures. I have my iPhone 4 for that. I will use the FaceTime feature and once in awhile, I will use the back camera to shoot some video. It's pretty awkward to hold that big iPad to take a still.

Here's a side by side for those interested.

Nothing is retouched. Raw upload, just resized.

First pic, iPad2. Second is iPhone 4. iPad is definitely more grainy but I really don't see myself using it as a camera all that much.

Muddy, on the iPhone 4 pic, did you have the flash activated? The lighting looks different, but it could also just be the iPhone 4 having a bteer camera :)

That second pic from the iPhone 4 looks like the HDR pics. Crisp and detailed but usually the colors are not robust. The HDR is a good feature but if I want vibrant colors often times I use the regular pic.

But Wow I can see the difference and no big deal. Not a deal breaker. iPad 2 is hot!

No lighting difference but probably HDR on.

I'm going to try another one with HDR off.

Why doesn't the iPad have HDR?

And why does the iPad upload in .png format and the iPhone in .jpg format?
