New Cameras

Apple upgraded the cameras in The New iPad, with a 5-megapixel iSight camera on the back of the iPad. It will also contain auto-focus and auto-exposure, use the same optics system found in the iPhone 4S, and be able to record 1080p video.

This will help with some of the new features that Apple announced today, most notably iPhoto for iPad.

Already available to other Apple users, iPhoto for iPad allows you to change how pictures look, you can browse your pictures, beam pictures to other devices, and create photo journals. Randy Ubillos, chief architect of photo and video apps at Apple, described it as a "reinvention" of iPhoto.

In addition, iPhoto for iPad will be able support photos up to 19-megapixels. The reinvention of iPhoto seems like it is taking direct shots at Instagram, the popular iOS app, as well as Facebook's Timeline. It is available immediately for $5, and if you already have it, the updated version of iPhoto is free.

Images can be shared with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, email and other applications.
