The First New iPad Camera Shots: Pretty Good! But Don't Use It, EverS

The iPad 2's camera was "really terrible," and you look like an imbecile when using it. The latter factor is still firmly in place, but at least this time around Apple's tablet takes pretty decent photos. Still, don't do that.

The Vietnamese gents at Tinhte.vn, who received their new iPad early, put up a big batch of test shots—and they're damn nice! A little washed out in places, but even indoors the iPad's beefed-up sensor looks to perform well, and doesn't generally resemble a late-90s webcam. Shots are sharp, and colors are okay most of the time. It's not a great camera, but it's definitely decent. Particularly for a tablet camera you look so stupid using that we'd recommend against, if not outright forbid, you from using it. Seriously. People will laugh at you. But daps to Apple for improving technology that ought not be touched.
