First unstaged iSight photo samples from the new iPad appear, iPad 2 camera weeps
We finally have some photos from the new iPad that don't originate from Apple's marketing department, taken by the guys that unpacked a new iPad yesterday. These is the same crew that leaked the iPhone 4 in 2010, by the way. Some of the images show The EXIF data shows Apple iPad and 2592x1536 resolution, which equates to 5MP, so we have every reason to believe these are originals.
The out-and-about shots show a great deal better detail and contrast than the wimpy shooter on the iPad 2, but we would be surprised to witness anything else. Exposure gets a bit wonky when there are contrasting dark and bright spots in the frame, and some noise is evident with the indor shots, but these are valid for the vast majority of cameras on mobile - well, we're yet to see real-life samples from the Nokia 808 PureView.
The new iPad's 5MP camera module is dubbed iSight by Apple, and sports 5-element lens plus backlit sensor, similar to the 8MP cam on the iPhone 4S. It is also now capable of 1080p video recording but we are yet to see a sample of that. So if you care at all about tablet cameras, check out the sample unretouched photos from the new iPad's snapper below. What, Tinhte has its own case/pouch design stint, and its coffee shop serves liquor? Props.
