    This was a great idea put to me by one of our very cool members. I will let him pop in if he wants. I don't have an iPad 2 so I will live precariously through you guys!

    Please do not turn this thread into how bad you think the camera is or isn't.

    Let's include videos too ~ I'm curious.:D

    Is there an easy way to upload them straight up from my iPad? I.e., without uploading it to file hosting servers? Would installing tapatalk fix that?

    a quickie i took this morning of one of my mutts... (taken in landscape rotation)

    (i've certainly no complaints on the camera as a whole, other than the physical size it shoots)

    Generally, the ipad2’s camera's internal shots come out very grainy, good light or not. But, there are occasions, especially when natural light is excellent, a sweet spot can be found.

    And this is the key - good external natural lighting. Artificial internal lighting is generally where the poor ipad2's camera falls over. Outside on a decent day you can take decent photos.

    This is very true! I was using Max's iPad to take outside pictures and they were very nice. Excellent color.

    So......take some more.:)

    i first email myself the photo, then on my desktop i upload the photo to my own server, then post link here :)

    most peeps dont have their own servers, so use a public photo dump to upload to like http://photobucket.com/

    Very nice. Thank you for posting them.
    I'm looking forward to seeing more.
    I was taking some on my Galaxy Tab and found that a center metering works so much better than spot or matrix for shots in bright light both indoors and out. What was the metering set to for those. The colors look very realistic and not washed out like so many cameras on mobile devices do. Whether 2mp or 20mp I don't think the tablets have the software to compensate for variable light/shadows without help from a program after saving the shot.
    that's why I like threads like these. If you post more will you write any settings changes you've made or whether full auto? Thanks.

    If you tap on the screen whilst framing your pic, it will adjust the exposure for that point.

    So full auto and it decides what's best?
    Interesting. I'd be interested in how it handles shadows and bright in the same shot.
    I have an Ipad 1 so have to do like SP wrote , live vicariously through y'all

    Tapatalk allows direct upload.
    There is a roundabout way as well if you want to use your browser. Icab mobile allows upload of files.
    You can also use photobucket app , upload the picture to it and post a link to the photobucket picture url.
    I took this picture on my Tab, emailed it to myself, saved the photo on my phone, post it with Tapatalk.

    Cool! Thanks man. Here's a photo I took before game six of the Stanley Cup finals. Looks quite prophetic now, haha.

    Well, as I tried to describe, you can tap on any are in the photo and it will adjust the autoexposure using that point as the new reference for light and shade. That way you can 'force' it to brighten or darken overall to produce a better shot. If that makes sense......

    Yes that makes sense. I think.
    Just to clarify there is no "settings " to set up beforehand like being able to force the white balance, metering,ISO , etc . A true point /shoot camera.
    From what I'm seeing here it does a pretty good job. Of course expecting a bright photo in a dark room won't happen without help and the direct sun or a light , the flash being a foot away from the subject , etc won't either. I think sometimes our expectationsb are not capable of meeting reality.
    Very interesting and kudos to whoever did the software.
