Ah I see, I figured it would be better since it has iPhone 5s specs and plenty of light in my living roomYes.
The camera is there mostly for FaceTime and apps that use the camera (like the ones Apple show in their Keynotes).
I have owned every model of the 9.7" iPad since 2012 and never took a photo with it. My camera roll is always empty.
The optics suck, but that's to be expected in a 6mm device tablet.
