So How Good is a Tablet Camera

You can achieve some very good results from a tablet camera depending upon the model you have and how you use it.

  • Provided you have the tablet camera settings correctly set.
  • If the lighting is good.
  • Using ‘tap to focus’ will help with focus and light.
  • You hold the tablet still you can achieve some very ggod results. 

The photos below are some of the ‘better’ photos from members.  (I have also included a few from an iPhone5 as I don’t have a tablet camera.)

Members were then asked to access the wesbite later Tuesday to see their photos.  The slideshow below shows the photos.
