    The quality of the photos taken on my ipad is so poor as to be not worth taking them at all. I have so far failed to take a photo which is not abysmal quality. Are there some settings somewhere which I ned to change, or is the camera just useless?
    Thanks anyone who can advise ;)

    I took some photos the other day which I thought turned out fairly well - but then I'm not a great photographer by any means...

    The camera is low-quality, intended for video calls and such, rather than photography.

    The iPad camera is less than 1 megapixel, making it next to useless for photos. As previously said, it's fine for FaceTime, where too much video resolution would be difficult to transmit smoothly.

    Ah thanks. That explains it. No good for photos - my phone camera is 10000 times better!

    At first I was bummed about the camera but in reality, it's awkward to try to take photos with it anyway. The front facing camera, as said above, is great for Skype/FaceTime though.

    Hi there,
    iPad front camera is poor, but what about back camera ?

    We have used iPad camera images in our iPad app . So user can import images right from camera when make shots. Of course it's not like professional one but mostly not bad quality, even you want quickly make some video using your camera shots.

    I would like to recommend our app , it's free and powerful there is soon another version for Xmas .

    That's called Foto Flo, Holiday version soon !!!!
    Give your visuals a voice !

    Thanks

    Well, the back camera is also poor in resolution - about .7 MP (my first digital camera in the 1990s was 2 MP!) - the amount of lighting (such as daylight) seems to improve the quality somewhat as is evident from the link given previously.

    NOW, the new iPhone 4S has an 8 MP camera - great stills w/ that one! Will Apple put in a better camera in the next iPad - who knows? :)
