    I work for a historical restaurant here in San Francisco and tourist are in and out of this place. One of the most common thing I see carried by tourist is their iPads which they use to take pictures. I just find it awkward using an ipad to take pictures. Now that the iPad Pro is out I'm sure I'll be seeing ginormous ipads out in the street with tourist using it to take photos. I just don't think iPads are made for taking photos and definitely not this large iPad Pro.

    i'll be taking site/work photos and reference photos when sketching and painting, but for general vacation/tourism photo use? yup, looks as silly as using it as a cell phone .

    The camera on this ain't all that great. It wasn't very good on the iPad Air either.

    I have fun taking pics of people that are taking pics with iPads. Our San Francisco trip last year was a blast out on the Wharf. :D

    Woe woe woe. Wait a second. Anyone using the new iPad Pro to take photos will only be a professional photographer because the iPad Pro is aimed towards Professionals heh.

    Which mostly proves that you have never used a large format camera (film or digital back) and do not understand the benefits of seeing a large image before you trigger the shutter.

    So, since you sound like an expert on "large format cameras" what are the benefit of using iPads and now the iPad pro as your travel camera?

    Can't wait to see the first internet memes of these being held up at concerts/events/etc... Talk about self-centered d-bags. :rolleyes:

    "No it's ok, I was just planning to watch the entire show on your iPad screen anyways" -person in row behind them.

    Joking aside I think it's going to be hugely popular as an all-in-one camera, hand fan, sun shade, GPS foot navigation, food tray, etc.

    Not surprise if it does happen. Some people are just inconsiderate. I personally experienced this during the SF Giants World Series parade last year where an elderly couple in front of me and my daughter kept taking photo and video of the Giants player while on the stage at city hall. It kept blocking me and other people behind them from seeing what's happening in front of us. My friend who's with us eventually inform them that they're blocking some people watching the event. They were nice enough to put it away.

    Being local to Disneyland, I've seen this happen a lot at the park too. Even worse is when people turn on their super bright iPhone LED light/flash to record video of fireworks or dark shows. :confused:
