    Good
    Because people should be using their phones or mirrorless/dslr cameras.

    It should only be an absolute last resort, ipad mini was ridiculous enough, let alone ipad, let alone ipad pro
    imo

    I don't get...you purchased iPad pro for camera? Seriously? Is it because you don't make much money or what? I really don't get your statement...it's like you deserve to have higher spec...well...you do..if you go more money.

    Right, because it isn't the photographer who makes the photograph, it's the camera.

    Note I also said phones, and as an absolute last resort ^^

    I mean like, devices that are of a form factor that doesn't make you're entire head / upper torso disappear behind the device.
    That doesn't block others view at the venue or tourist attraction you are at.

    You are not really planning on taking photo's with it are you? I view the camera on my iPad Air 2 as an emergency backup when my iPhone 6s Plus is not readily available.

    "I mean like", apparently you have never used, nor even know about, large format cameras (film or digital), despite your authoritative advice on iPhones and "mirrorless/dslr" cameras.

    Meanwhile, harkening back to mrex's OMG complaint that the iPad Pro camera is a joke because it has only 8.2 megapixels, which both of you find amusing, maybe both of you should look at the following video, made with an 8 megapixel iPhone 5S and an iPad (let us know when you do better):

    You appear to be talking about studio / production grade gear / perspective, yes hasselblads etc are fantastic and if we go like an imax 70mm film cinema camera (or even a more current more compact cinema / production studio cameras once you've added a rig etc) then you'd likely have also rented a dedicated space, ie special permissions to use said camera in the area. In which case you would be out of the crowds, and most likely wouldn't be photographing or filming with a pad.

    So, sticking with the sort of consumer level / price point / likelihood of what other gadgets an iPad owner may have, it is a pet hate for general public to use tablets to take photos / record videos. Especially when you see that same person holding a phone which is much less intrusive that can do equally or a better job.

    No, I'm talking about the fact that mrex and you have said things that demonstrate that you have no idea what you are talking about.

    By the way, the 8 megapixel iPhone and iPad used to make the video to which I linked are not generally seen as "production grade gear", but do back up my statement that people make good work, not cameras. I rather suspect that that video is far and away better than anything that you could do, but I'd love to have you post a video here to prove me wrong.

    As for your last paragraph, next thing you'll tell me is that I shouldn't use my 8"x10" large format camera in public, or for that matter my Leica M, because, being larger than an iPhone, they will trigger "public hate". Just bizarre.

    Your gear essentially warrants it tho. Its their purpose, and they are good at what they do
    Leica is very lovely to use too btw.

    Although I really should plan one, I don't personally have any video portfolios to demonstrate. My content creation is really mostly just down personal (amateur / enthusiast) mini clips / photos for family, or street event / travel photography for fun.

    and how many devices (ipads) would they sell without a camera?

    zero...

    air2 cameras are crap... ipad pro with same cameras, useless... and yes the camera is a joke after iphone 6s+. my air2 has the most horrible camera i have used in awhile. taking a pic or vid just in a little darker environment than a day light? just forget it.

    Lighting is your friend with any iPad camera.

    The facetime cameras are a joke at this point!
