    how good is the camera on the new ipad? I know a lot is about the lens and not just the MP of the camera.


    ive always wanted a nice photo collection but never been interested in DSLR cameras et al. I see iphoto on the ipad + a good camera as been a monstrous combination if the camera is up to scratch for the CASUAL user... any opinions/views on this?

    IMO, if you're buying the new iPad to use as a camera, you're barking up the wrong tree. Get a Canon point-and-shoot and the camera connection kit for the iPad. It'll work wonderfully with the new iPhoto.

    that requires dropping another 200 though... which is a problem. i'd love for a casual person like myself that the ipad could also serve that purpose.

    I'm sure for the casual user it will be fine and as good as any point and shoot, don't expect DSLR level of low light performance or zooming. A downside to the size of the camera too is that it will tend to keep everything in focus, it'll likely be impossible (unless maybe through post processing) to get a narrow depth of field (think model in focus with blurry background) like is really popular these days.

    The lack of a flash is also a pretty big hole even for casual use.
