    The iPad 2 seems to lack resolution adjustment. Could there be a supporting software application for that?

    The front camera of the iPad2 is VGA - 640x480 - and is designed for video conferencing. The rear camera is a 1 megapixel camera designed for HD video. Neither camera was designed for taking still pictures and, although the iPad can take stills, they are of poor resolution. There is no way of overcoming this - it's a hardware issue that cannot be addressed by software. Apple never thought that people would want to take still pictures with their iPad.

    I am sorry you are having network problems from your service provider. Are these 3G problems via the cellular network, or WiFi problems via a broadband modem?

    Tim! The problems are commonly with the 3G service providers.

    Cameras

    I think it's worth bearing in mind that using an Ipad for still photography is not the most ergononomically friendly soloution. In these day's of hand held HD still and video cameras, holding an ipad for still shots makes little if any sense.

    I have a JVC hand held HD video and stills device. On a stand it makes sense, even my bridge camera (Fuji) is designed perfectly for the purpose. Add to that a Samsung 8 mega pixel compact, and that covers photography for me.

    The FaceTime camera is good, but you need enough light to show it off at it's best.

    Apple never intended to compete in the camera market with the ipad.

    But if I may argue, we are in the 21stcc living within time and space. The essence of all in one modern day technology is to reduce excess baggage in the time of journey and as well control the issue of global warming as there may be a greater opportunity for global decongestion. One iPad and or it's equivalent can handle everything ranging from transaction, media, medical, organizers and all sort of provision by the digital age.

    In some ways, the iPhone4 tries to be that universal device, but its screen - although high resolution - is too small for many people for comfortable viewing. Hence the iPad - a larger screen device that's been optimised for media consumption - but not for taking photographs, I suspect.

    so if its not ment to take good pics, why are there so meny photograpgy apps like camera Pro ect. And correct me, if I'm wrong, but if the lens is capable to record HD video, it should be as good for still pics. The problem is in software. Remember how it was said in iPad 2 ads ? back. They may be tiny, but they’re a big deal... It’s HD, so whatever you shoot is a mini-masterpiece. And you can take wacky snapshots in Photo Booth. Doesnt it make youthink that it SHOULD take good pics ?!

    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.

    Really ? camon guys ! Apple cheated on this and should replace the rear cameras on all sold iPads, if it really only in hardware.

    one more thing - even if you read the specs in iPad 2 homepafe, they never say, its a crappy 1mp camera. Everywhere they write in big and bold,that its a HD camera, that works best even in low light conditions .

    Absolutely agreed with You, and if I may suggest Apple iPad should correct the mistake and make a free replacement offer with the coming iPad 3 for all those who purchase the iPad 2.

    I wouldn't hold my breath. Most don't purchase the iPad for hopes of an awesome camera. You can see just what you should expect from doing research on the camera, before purchasing.;)

    May I take you back to my earlier threat posted on the 11th may 2011 as I'v argued that time and space is all about 21stcc regarding all in one and that one need not to carry excess baggage especially to the way farers.... And if not why then the camera from the first place? I refuse to purchase samsung galaxy tab because I was awaiting the iPad 2 simply because of the camera, reduction on weight and speed. And if I may argue many people decided on the iPad 2 simply because of the mention quality not because we don't like the ipad1.
