    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.

    Well, I think of it as so much better than being stuck with no camera or an even worse one.

    Can we please have one thread about camera issues and then merge all these repetitive posts into it so they don't clog the forum up.

    As much i dont want to I have to agree with apple and them not putting effort into the camera.
    Like has been said who seriously is going to walk around with a giant square and take photos. If you want to take photos put the money into getting someone designed for it.. I remember listen to a radio show in which someone was review mobile phones and he was saying how great cameras are on them these day and how you really dont need to but point and clicks. I have to completely disagree with this I think if people understood the level of photos you could take with just a imple point and click they would be surpised.

    I took this with a £100 canon point and click...
    Basically try not to be feel to let down with the iPad camera. It just is what its made todo

    In my opinion the best camera I have is the one to hand!

    So if the kids are playing whilst I am sat browsing on my iPad, I want to capture that moment then and there and not say hold on let me pop to the office and grab the dslr etc or if I have my phone to hand I will use that - very few pictures I want to take are planned but the ones that are, are normally for sales items on eBay, which ain't great with the iPad lol

    Still I am sure that the iPad 3 will address this issue :)

    Lighting is your friend.
    If you look on the "photos taken on your Ipad" thread there are many that are more than adequate.
    The best shots seem to come from outdoor shots and more natural lighted indoor shots

    Apple should be ashamed of themselves promoting a camera and coming up with this one. Would have it been that hard to put a better one in the ipad 2 and let it be your choice whether or not you want to use it for that purpose.

    Apple didn't promote the camera perse, the users did. Apple simply stated a camera is included for video calls and such. At no point did they promote it for snap shots that I'm aware of. The general public chose to like or dislike it for photos. It's no different than when cameras first started showing up on phones. They never tried to hide the capabilities of them, we chose to accept or not accept a vga sized camera usage. Just like with the phone industry, the feed back is heard and look for Apple and others to improve tablet cameras and people to still complain.

    i cant agree, that Apple didnt promote the camera. Actually he said some big words about it, but did not ever mention that it does not take aceptavle stills, that are under 1 MP ! It’s HD, so whatever you shoot is a mini-masterpiece....create your own mini-masterpiece right on iPad....Shoot all day and into the night. Bring on the candles and little white lights. Go find fireplaces, sunsets, or a sky full of stars. You can get the full effect on iPad without a big flash. The advanced backside illumination sensor lets you capture great moments even in low light...

    in technical specs they say. Back camera: Video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 frames per second with audio; still camera with 5x digital zoom. They never mention, that the ca is crap, but if you read everywhere avout HD cam, you are more thsn sure, that it also takes good photos ! All the others do...
