Hands-on Review - Part V
Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs iPad 2 Photogaphy Performance
We have compared Galaxy Tab 10.1 vs iPad 2 in Part III. We have also seen how the 3MP camera perform for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 perform.
Now, let's see how it compares to the pictures from iPad 2's 1MP camera.

Low-light night landscape shots

Close-up macro shots

Panorama shots
(iPad 2 does not come with a Panorama function, I used a 3rd-party app "Panorama" by Free the Apps)

One significant difference in both camera is the angle of view. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 camera has a wider angle compared to that of iPad 2. Both cameras give usable pictures when resized, however, on close-up, the resolution difference is obvious. Pictures from the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is crisp, sharp and clear, while the pictures from iPad 2 appears slightly smudgy. Night shots from the iPad 2 should never be view close-up!
Galaxy Tab 10.1 allows you to go closer for a macro shot compared to the iPad 2.
The built-in Panorama feature in the stock camera app of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 clearly stitches the frames much more perfectly than the 3rd-party app on iPad 2.

The winner is clear! Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1!
