He 720 means... Video taking capacity.... And still photography is measured in pixels... I believe this iPad is 5megaixels... But it is not that much good as my iphone....

This is an oft asked question and a simple search would likely provide plenty of information - the iPad's cameras stink! They are useful for video conferencing and for low to decent quality video.

The front camera has a resolution of about .3 MP useful for video chatting only; the back camera has a higher resolution but is still under 1 MP - still images are possible but disappointing; now there is a thread on 'showing your images' and some decent pics are illustrated especially if the light is good.

Bottom line - if you want decent 'still images' take your digital camera along; the multi-MP current iPhones are a vast improvement - :)

Giradman is right on. However if no other option I use Camera Boost.

Neither camera is that great compared even to your cell phone. But, for video chat its not bad. I use an app called Top Camera for taking pictures (when I do take pics). I often transform a picture into artwork by tracing over the lines and filling in colors. For that, the ipad camera is just about right and very convenient.
