So how much better is the new iPad's new camera?

0. phoneArena 18 Mar 2012, 12:35 posted on

Admittedly, for a tablet, we’re impressed with the results produced by the new iSight camera. Outdoors under sunny conditions, there is enough balance in various key aspects to make its shots worthy enough for an actual print out. Visually, details are sharp enough to...

The display is outstanding. But do we need that much hi res. Full HD is more than enough for most of the users. Apple made the A5X with quad core GPU to fire up the hi res. But what I learnt is that the A5X is generating considerably more heat than A5. If users can feel this extra heat generation while using their new iPad then it will become a big issue (like iPhone 4 antenna gate). So it is too early give conclusion.

Mine honestly doesn't get hot at all,only slightly warm with very heavy usage. That will vary device to device though.

It's funny you ask that. I think the closer we can get to actual printed text, the better reading is on the iPad. I have to say it's pretty damn close.

But the reason I say it's funny is that, I always wonder why people need to have 30Mbps on their sell phones...but no one is turning it down. Hell, sometimes folks get upset without it...even though they are only doing basic web browsing on their mobile devices.

I don't think we should shun any breakthrough on technology...except artificial intelligence...which will always scare me.

"...it exhibits more grainy visuals due to the increase in exposure." In low light the exposure is all the way open at f2.8. Noise is caused by not enough light hitting the sensor. The only way to reduce noise is to add light or to have a lens with a lower f-stop. Although f2.8 is pretty good for a mobile device. My fastest Canon prime lens is f1.2. It would be awesome if mobile devices could get there one day.

Imagine a Nokia Windows 8 Tablet 7inch with 41megapixel PureView technology that would outshine the iPad.

Yeah, when Windows 8 comes out this summer, iPad may be gone.

41 megapixels still blows my mind.

The size of each picture is going to be HUGE.

After a dozen pictures ... you will be out of space on your phone.

Crazy cool though ...

when ibutt2 was out, people thought the cr@ppy camera is a live with as a camera is not a neccesary thing on a tablet for baristas. so what's the point for comparing a "standard" camera with a cr@ppy one? you will think water is yummy when you are thirsty, so how much yummier is a glass of water vs a cup of peee??
