The camera on the tablet is similar to the one which was present in the earlier model. You will not find much of a change in there. Some minor alterations in the features like panoramas, slow-motion videos, and time-lapse, can be felt when taking a photo or video. However, the most notable area here is the editing of photographs. Once you have finished taking a snap and want to edit it, you can easily perform that using the snap editing feature, which is commendable. Apart from that, there is nothing new in the camera resolution or features. Those of you, who have the iPad air 1, might not notice the changes in the camera in the iPad air 2 as there is hardly any.
