We have to level with you. The iPad 2 has some flaws. One would only expect that the iPad 2, a device many many months ahead of the iPhone 4, would have an equal or better quality camera. Sadly, it doesn’t. So to see just where the iPad 2 camera ranks with the rest of the meaningful tablets, Macworld thoroughly tests them.
The baseline for the test is the Canon PowerShot S95, a camera that continues to blow our minds for its size. While it isn’t fair to compare the S95 with any of the mobile devices, it does put things into perspective.
So what to take away from the testing? Tablet cameras aren’t very good. But the iPad 2 isn’t much better or worse than the rest of the relevant tablets.
