Read things about the cameras, didn't think they'd be as bad some of the reviews mentioned, but I got my hands on an iPad 2: Cameras are AWFUL. There's no way to mitigate it. The stills look like a 1988 demo of "The Future of Photography (Except In The Future The Pictures Won't Make You Cringe)." Not just the pixel count, but the optics are terrible. A TINY bit of mitigation: Since you can use both cameras for FaceTime, I'd say the video quality on both cameras is acceptable for FaceTime.
