    Hello. I just got my IPAD 2 this morning (Wifi 32GB black). I had read about the camera quality and i didnt expected much. When i tried the rear camera (0,7 mp) i took photos with a lot of noise in the picture ... When i tried the front camera i took phots with less noise ... thats quite strange .

    Here are 2 samples of the same object taken with the 2 cameras of ipad.

    Picture takes with the rear camera ...

    Picture taken with the front camera...

    Please see the pictures and tell me if the "noise" at the picture with the rear camera is normal for IPAD2 ... i keep thinking that my camera may be a bit deffective ...

    thanks :)

    Well ... you could help me with a straight answer :p This is how the picture should look like with the rear camera ? Or does the camera has a problem ?

    Easy answer, the rear camera sucks and yes the front is better. Same with mine.

    I thought this was a problem with mine as well but if you take pictures in daylight there isn't noise. The camera is not very good in lowlight it just creates noise.

    I sincerely apologise - we get so many members trying to 'trick' the moderators that I mistakenly assumed this was the same here - because they were not regular pictures - i.e. some scenery or a family shot. I was not trying to be unhelpful and I really do apologise for misunderstanding your post. I'm pleased you received some helpful responses though.

    A humbled Tim
