What is really puzzling is, other tablets have 5 megapixel cameras so it's not like Apple couldn't easily have done the same thing. Apple should be ashamed to put in this piece of junk that would have been outdated 10 years ago.

I agree. The ipad2 camera is horrible. For such a high end device, they slacked on the camera. If only I could mod my evo's camera into the ipad...

The iPad isn't intended to be used as anyone's main camera. Did you research it, before buying?

Agree. Using it to take HQ pic would require more functionality such as macro, zoom, picture modes, etc. It's better to use digicam for that purpose.

Honestly, who wants to take a picture with a floor tile? It's a cheap web cam and you gets what you pays for. Works for video, not so much for stills. Use your phone or a real camera for that.

And besides, it's better than the cam in the first iPad. ;)

You guys are missing the point. I didnt get my ipad so it could replace my computer, camera, ps3, cellphone, etc. I know its not a replacement for any of those. But you have to admit that the camera is mediocre compared with the rest of the tablets out there. Ive noticed that most apple products are popular because theyre easy to use, they have a huge userbase and they have a nice apple in the back, not because they are the superior product. And while I love my ipad i think its dissapointing that they couldnt put a better camera in there seeing as how we are in 2011 and 4+ MP cameras are pretty much standard nowadays.

You'll get 0 argument from me on any of your points but with you already having those points of view I'm surprised that you are upset at the ipad camera. It seems you knew beforehand it was going to disappoint you.
Just like anything Apple , or any other platform for that matter,you either adjust to their view of your needs or move on to something else.

Actually I expected apple to be a bit less predictable with their wait-till-3rd-or-4th-gen-to-make-devices-competent-even-though-technology-was-available-since-launchness. I knew the ipad would never have a 5mp camera but I did expect a usable one. :/

Overall though I am very happy with my ipad. But as a costumer I have every right to complain about what I might see as shortcomings in the device with the camera being pretty much my only concern. Other than that, the ipad is godly.

It's not that bad, I think you'd look a bit pretentious taking photos oot n aboot with an iPad anyway.
