In Defence of Taking Photos with iPad

September 10th, 2012

A phone or a camera will show you a minified version of your motive before you can take a picture. An iPad shows your motive on a much larger display, in a larger size.

It is a digital window into reality. A window that you can ask to capture whatever you see through it at any given time.

But it is not a minified version of reality, not a preview. The power lies in showing the real thing. An iPad allows you to cut out a piece of reality.
