    Is there a setting for the image stabilization? Does the image stabilization work taking pictures and video? I don't see a difference from my iphone and the iPad3 as far as the video being smoother and less jittery? Any feed back appreciated.

    Thanks

    The iPad apparently uses the iPhone 4 camera with some better software from the 4S. For someone who has not used either iPhones, I found the camera feature great, but have not had a lot of time to experiment. It may be a long time before I get totally used to it, but I like what I see so far.

    I agree, so far so good. But the whole "image stabilization" feature stumps me. can't tell if it's on or off, or if it even works. The video is amazing though!

    The camera in the iPad 3 is not the same as the iPhone 4. It has a different fixed aperture for one. By all accounts it is the same set up as the iPhone 4s just with a smaller resolution sensor.

    I know nothing about mobile device cameras, but this is the report from ifixit's tear down.

    I'm surprised by that report. Take a photo on the iPhone 4 and check its exit data. It uses f/2.8. A photo on the iPhone 4s or iPad 3 uses f/2.4. A different aperture and since thee devices use a fixed aperture, it can't be the same unit. Similar yes but not the same unless the iPad 3 keynote was incorrect about the f/2.4 quote.
