BricksAccording to Apple, the 5-megapixel camera on the back of their New iPad (third-generation) uses the same five-element lens system and digital processing as their successful iPhone 4S.
To put this claim to the test, we shot a number of indoor and outdoor photos on both devices to see the difference for ourselves.
In this first example, you'll see a photo of bricks taken with the iPad (left) and the iPhone 4S (right). Can you spot any differences in detail, color or clarity? Neither could we.
Admiral Sackbar & friendFor this indoor photo, we photographed our beloved cubicle mascot, Admiral Sackbar and his armpit-sniffing woodland companion.
The iPad photo is on the top, with the iPhone version is below it. You'll notice that the iPhone photo is slightly closer, and tricks the camera into a shallower focus. This was an unintentional, but recurring quirk, caused by how we naturally wanted to hold each device and view its screen.
