Head-To-Head: Apple iPad Vs. Apple iPad Mini


Cameras

The cameras on the iPad 4 and iPad mini are physically identical and offer exactly the same capabilities. Both devices are equipped with a 1.2MP front-facing camera and 5MP shooter on the rear. In terms of relative quality, they're among the best cameras available for a tablet, but they're mediocre when compared with, say, a DSLR. Both machines can shoot video at 1080p (rear) and 720p (front). Apple's rear iSight camera offers a five-element lens with f/2.4 aperture and autofocus. Unfortunately, neither can take advantage of the much-publicized Panorama feature of iOS. But don't worry -- a replacement can be found in ... (the next slide).
