    Hello Forum,

    I am an educator and the ipad 2 would be ideal for our early childhood classrooms. Our teachers spend the day working with children and carrying around a laptop and camera to document the children's work.then after work they put the pictures into the written document.

    The iPad 2 would be ideal because of it's size and the ability to take a photo, write about the experience taking place immediately. This would eliminate the extra step that would take place of putting Docs together after school when the moment is over.

    My question is, Is the ipad2 camera good enough to take a decent still of a child say building with blocks? Or would any slight on the childs part make the still blurry?

    It is hard to say with no hands on experience with the iPad 2 yet
    However, from all indications, your answer is "yes" it will be adequate to take stills

    Expect reviews this Wednesday night from the usual reviewers (Walt Mossberg, David Pogue, Engadget) to get a more accurate hands on test with specs and benchmarks.

    Pure conjecture on my part but if it's the same cameras from the iPod Touch, the quality will be horrible indoors and upclose shots will look blurry due to the lack of AF.
