Ok not the best camera Apple have included so what have you produced with your IPad .. Preferably wholly edited on the IPad - if not, say so..

Fed up of seeing ipads sticking out in the aisle of a church during weddings.
I currently have a very successful exhibition ongoing that includes approx. 60 images .. Produced from a mixture of the Canon 5D, Sony DSC R1, Fujifilm X100, flatbed scanner and the iPad (just under 50% using iPad). Currently the favourite image, by a clear margin, was done using the iPad. It just goes to show that you don't need a good camera to produce nice images that would even be accepted in an exhibition.

Rev2 may agree that the 'fun' aspect of the IPad is that you get great instant feedback on a large screen and if required you can carry out any necessary editing at the scene. I know it isn't the best in terms of quality, especially in low light, but it does provide a fun experience and sometimes it is great to show an edited image, when asked by someone who stops to speak to you, took there several minutes ago while the scene is still present. From day one of the exhibition I was contacted by a school regarding passing on experience to teenagers in using their mobile phone cameras .. So if it only serves to capture the interest of young people into photography as a starting point it will be something worthwhile ..
I do agree. I have an iPad mini and a Canon 7D, I only have the iPad with me when I'm working away. You know what they say about the best camera...
Exactly ... I've caught several shots on the iPad that I stopped and thought that I would loved to have caught on a DSLR but realised I would, in reality, have not caught at all had I not had my iPad. Many people have an iPhone with them every minute of the day and that has a better camera. The apps provide great opportunities for artistic as well as subtle editing for minimal expense or no expense at all. Maybe the next subject would be the apps of choice ...
Spotted whilst out looking for macro subjects, how do you compose in bright light with these things, approximately I assume.
Well I would suggest that it would need a cloth over the head like the old cameras used to have.
I fail to see Ipad as a fine art instrument. And it is definitely not photo-on-the-fly solution simply because it's front projection is larger than from almost any DSLR. But it may be fun - with applications that include HDR, slow shutter photography, etc. I wonder if one day we will see iOS enabled camera in compact ( at least) format. It would be a great thing to have a camera that accepts third party firmware - legally, without hacking CHDK way. Well, as long as one does not need to pay some sort of subscription to use it
Very good photos above - not many compacts could do anything like this just 6 or 7 years ago...

I doubt we would see an iOS camera, unless it came entirely from Apple and why would they bother as they are too busy selling ipads & iphones as cameras.
Android is a different matter though, I would expect to see it on more and more cameras (like this one from Nikon) as manufacturers slowly realise the world has changed and cameras without an open OS are going the way of the dodo.

What exactly are the rules on what can be used then? I presumed more or less anything was ok .. It's like trying to say what can or can't be art.

I have been using one or a long time now and haven't had any real problems with bright days.
