The problem that I have with the first post of this thread is that basically, if you found your way from the front page to this forum then surely you saw all of the one million articles all over the Internet including the front page of this site saying that the cameras took bad photos. If I post a sign on a road that says that there's a cliff ahead are you gonna drive off and be mad that there was actually a cliff?! This makes no sense to me. You seem like an intelligent person so I'll assume that you normally do a little research while waiting to drop several dead presidents on ANYTHING. How did you not know this before you got in line?!

By the way. I also have a Nikon DSLR and an iPhone 4. They both have excellent cameras. Therefore, I never intended to use my iPad as a camera. I also have an HD video camera so I doubt I'll ever shoot video with my iPad. The cameras are for FaceTime. It's been said long before the lines started forming for iPad 2 sales. I just don't get what your problem is since I'm sure that you saw all the same reviews and articles that I did. I'm afraid that I've come to the conclusion that you sir are a troll.

Well coming from a person that has never used a tab let alone owned one. I'm not disappointed at all. This is my new toy and my wife knows to scoot over because it's sleeping with me. The camera even though it's low quality is still fun to use with PhotoBooth. You don't need pimple spotting quality with a fun camera. The build of the iPad is solid and the display is great to me. I'm sure it would look way awesome with a retina display. But, again I don't think it's entirely needed. My biggest disappointment is with Apple Apps and file support. But I'm sure it'll get better with time.

I think the point that was missed in the original thread is that they should have at least put the same camera as the iPhone 4 in the iPad 2. I probably would have bought it if they had. Obviously it's not going to be my primary picture taking device but Apple gave us the option, and it was a bad one. If you're going to shell out hundreds of bucks for one of these, then the camera isn't going to really drive up the cost that much more anyway.
I guess I'm looking more for for a productive device and not a media consumption device.

The camera on the iPad 2 is not designed for taking photo's, it is designed for Facetime. Both back and front.
If you want a good camera then buy a camera - I am not at all disappointed by my iPad 2 (64GB with WiFi & 3G Black), it's an amazing device and does everything I want it to!

I have the First Ipad and I have a Iphone 4 and a Ipod touch. When I bought my Ipad in Feb my Grandson told me about the Ipad2 coming out. I opted NOT to buy the 2nd one I'm sort of a stickler for when things first come out to wait. Yes it's definitely NOT meant to be a Ipad Camera lol. To each it's own and YOU have every right to buy what you want. However don't get so upset over something that was NOT meant to be..just my 0.2 cents....

I can (barely) bring myself to use my iP4 as a camera or camcorder. I cannot bring myself to try to use something the size of a notebook pad as a camera. My wife did at a recent graduation and got quite annoyed by the ergonomics of the exercise, wholly apart from image quality. Personally, I'm fine with saving some money on cameras that work for video chat but aren't great for real photography. YMMV.
