    I was curious if other iPad 2 owners experience poor quality in their photos. Every time I take a picture they come out very gritty. Videos are the same way too. Is this normal with the iPad 2 camera? Is their something I can do to improve quality?

    Light's always the problem with grainy videos/pictures. That's why professionals bring huge light stands when taking video/pictures.

    I have iPad 2 and the photos/videos are reasonable, not dark or gritty.

    I prefer the iPad for indoor sport videos over my normal (not new) camera.
    Outdoors the iPad is not much for field sports even though there is plenty of light.

    I find the ipad 2 camera not too bad in really good light but we knew the camera was not going to be very good. The video I have found to be quite good.

    What you use depends upon what your priorities are.

    IPad does not pretend to be all things to all men.
    I admit I like them, but I am not a rusted on fanatic!
