[Wired] Just how bad is the iPad 2 camera? - Page 2

post #11 of 68
I don't mind that it shoots poor quality stills. I only plan on using the cameras for video chat anyway, I have a DSLR for stills.

Pretty much...

It's extremely likely that the iPad 2 and the iPod Touch share the exact same camera (although we won't know for sure until iFixit tears one open to see). It seems that it will be fine for movies, and bad for photos.
Without using the device or taking it apart to see what kind of camera it uses this is all just speculation. We have a section for those kind of articles...

Though, I agree with the above comments that the camera is good enough for what it will be used for app wise. If you are overly concerned with picture quality buy a point and shoot for less than $200 and it will be better than any cell phone.

My money is that they don't allow taking pictures on either cameras.

This picture I just took on my cell phone at 640X480 the lowest setting an its not 100% horrible so why would one at 720 be that bad.

Good contrast, color, and sharpness would make 720p AMPLE. Because monitor-bursting images are stupid when they need to be downsized to 20% to actually make anything out from all the blurr.

The megapixels standard is really killing cameras.

They cannot be doing this, phones have 5mp+ quality!

It would be funny if you go on one of those group photography trips and some dude whips out an ipad to take a photo of a lion 10 feet infront of him. Or you see like one of those red carpet photo-shoots and some dude is holding his ipad up snapping photos.

Are any of you who are complaining really REALLY going to buy an iPad to take photos and shoot video? If so, you're nuts.

The picture and video quality will be fine for what it will be used for, AR apps and video chatting. Do you REALLY need huge images being sent over your network, bogging down the bandwidth? Do you REALLY need high quality images just to Skype? I think not.
