Poll: Are you using your iPad 2 cameras?

What do you use your iPad 2 cameras for?Market Research

Are you using the cameras on your iPad 2? Apple really didn't go out of their way to provide great cameras, basically porting over what they had in the iPod touch 4 instead of the much better camera in the iPhone 4. But they say the best camera is the one you have with you and from time to time, that will be the iPad 2, right? No, really? Perhaps you have seen our TiPb TV tourist episode and gained some inspiration?

If you've made regular use of your iPad 2 cameras for still pictures, shooting video, FaceTime calls, Augmented Reality apps, or anything else, let us know!

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/images/stories/2011/03/iPhone-4-NFC.jpg" alt="Sony 8mp image sensors for iPhone 5 delayed?" title=Sony 8mp image sensors for iPhone 5 delayed?" width="400" height="300" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-58220" />

9to5Mac's Seth Weintraub was watching the Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg interview Sony CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, when stringer let slip that cameras meant for Apple iPhone and iPad would be delayed to due the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Paraphrased: “Our best senor technology is built in one of the (tsunami) affected factories.  Those go to Apple for their iPhones…or iPads.  Isn’t that something?  They buy our best sensors from us?”

Apple considering 3D camera technology for the iPhone?

AppleInsider has discovered patent applications showing that APple may be interested in including dual rear-facing cameras and additional sensors for a new 3D image technology in mobile devices such as the iPhone.

The hardware-based system would be an improvement over recent Android devices that include 3D camera technology due to software that takes "guesses" at how to conduct stereo disparity compensation on 3D images. The more guesses needed to process these images result in loss of quality and artifacts.

Photo Booth on iPad 2

One of the new features of the iPad 2 is a Photo Booth app for use with its new built in cameras.

Things are about to get pretty twisted. Photo Booth takes snapshots of you and your friends in ways far from ordinary — from funny to artsy to really bizarre. Make a few faces, snap a few snaps, and see your wacky side.

The iPad 2 has two cameras, a front-facing VGA camera and a 720p HD rear-facing camera. According to Apple, Photo Booth uses the front-facing camera, but the screenshots seem to point to the ability of using the rear-facing camera as well.

Using Photo Booth is simple. Just hold up the iPad and snap away. When using the front-facing camera, Photo Booth will flash the screen white just prior to taking the photo to add light to your face, much like the Mac version of Photo Booth.

Once you're done twisting up your face, doubling your head, or making yourself look like an alien, a comic book character, or an X-ray, share your photos via email or assign them as contact photos. Everything in Photo Booth is saved in your photo library, so sharing to Facebook, Twitter, or other social platforms will also be a breeze.

Photo Booth will be a fun addition to iPad 2 for children and adults alike. Are you looking forward to playing around with Photo Booth on the iPad 2?

Follow along for a few more screenshots!

Blue spot camera bug fixed with Verizon iPhone?

Remember that annoying bug that causes a blue tint in the center of photos? It looks like it may have been fixed in the new version of iOS that is running on the Verizon iPhone 4.

For many people running iOS 4.2.1, there is a blue tint in the center of images - most notably of subjects that are white. There have been mixed reports of the lighting situations that cause it. For some, it's only in the presence of fluorescent lighting. For others, it's only when using the flash, and for the incredibly unlucky, it's for all lighting scenarios.
