    When my "room" is exhausted, i get a message that says 'Cannot take photo, there is not enough storage' and it gives me the "done" and "settings". So, i go into photos and erase a few photos and videos, but if i don't erase enough, i can't get rid of the message.....even though i know there's enough space there for at least what i just deleted.

    I'd like to bypass or get rid of that message and be able to take photos until there actually is no more room, this message is not exactly accurate as the machine should know that if i erase one picture, i should have at least room for one more picture.

    There's no way to bypass this message.

    But here's something else:
    If you use iMessage, Safari very often, and open email attachments (just an example), they also need storage space on your iPad. You should regularly clear history and website data in Settings - Safari, delete messages you don't need any more, and look at your email account's usage. From time to time, if storage space builds up, delete the account and reinstall it. This will also free up storage space.

    Also, take a look at "Other". That's something you'll see when you connect your iPad to iTunes (computer). When you choose your device there, you'll find a bar at the bottom, showing what takes storage. If Other is a large amount, restoring your device should help getting back some of this space.
