    I'm not sure which of the iPad cameras you are referring to, but neither were really designed to take good quality still pictures. Even the rear facing camera is only a 1 megapixel camera - very low resolution compared to modern dedicated digital still cameras. Rather the rear facing camera was primarily designed as a video (movie) camera and the front facing camera for video conferencing.

    So, if you are aiming to take still pictures, you really need to use a dedicated conventional still camera. The iPad camera was not designed to replace this and is really not capable of taking good quality still pictures.

    Haha. I'm a little disappointed as well. But I think Steve jobs wanted to make sure you knew these cameras were made for video chat. Not taking real photos because come on, who would hold up a giant screen to take photos? No matter that a lot of people would actually do that.... It's just the wrong way of doing it :)

    Plus. At least it has a camera now... That was everyone's gripe about iPad 1.

    Its meant for video chatting. Using a 10 inch screen as a camera isn't exactly great.

    I'm not sure the rear camera is for video chat. Yes it's unwieldy but it's still useful to be able to take pictures- for me it's the quality not the size that stops me using it.

    The front camera if VGA (640x480) quality and is for video calls.

    The rear camera is 1 megapixel and is for HD video. Neither camera were designed primarily for still photography. For example, the iPhone has a 5 megapixel camera, while most dedicated consumer still cameras are 5-14 megapixels.

    Apple never really thought that users would want to take serious still photographs with it.
