The iPad is a line of tablet computers for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, and web content designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. Its size and weight falls between those of smartphones and laptop computers. The iPad runs the same operating system as the iPod Touch and iPhone. The iPad is controlled by a multitouch display and a virtual onscreen keyboard. The iPad uses a wireless local area network (“Wi-Fi”) connection to access local area networks and the Internet.
Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad 2 on March 2, 2011. iPad 2 is about 33% thinner than its predecessor with a faster processor and a 10-hour battery life. It is managed and synced by iTunes running on a personal computer via USB cable.
The original iPad had no camera; the iPad 2 has a front VGA camera and a rear-facing 720p camera, both capable of still images and 30fps video. The rear-facing camera has a 5x digital zoom for still images only. Both shoot photo and video in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio, unlike the iPhone 4, which shoots in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Unlike the iPhone, the iPad does not support tap to focus. The cameras allow FaceTime video messaging with iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, and Snow Leopard Macs.
DSLR Lenses for iPad!
The term DSLR or digital single-lens reflex cameras (digital SLR or DSLR) generally refers to cameras that resemble 35 mm format cameras that use a mechanical mirror system and pentaprism to direct light from the lens to an optical viewfinder on the back of the camera, the mirror reflects the light coming through the attached lens upwards at a 90 degree angle. It is then reflected three times by the roof pentaprism, rectifying it for the photographer’s eye. Many professionals also prefer DSLRs for their larger sensors compared to most compact digitals.
dSLRs are often preferred by professional still photographers because they allow an accurate preview of framing close to the moment of exposure, and because DSLRs allow the user to choose from a variety of interchangeable lenses. Most DSLRs also have a wide range of apertures ranging from as large as f/1.0 to about f/32. Provide pre program setting with Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority, and full Manual modes. They often include full-auto, landscape, portrait, action, macro, and night modes, among others.

In photography, a fisheye lens is a wide-angle lens that takes in an extremely wide, hemispherical image. Originally developed for use in meteorology to study cloud formation and called “whole-sky lenses”, fisheye lenses quickly became popular in general photography for their unique, distorted appearance. They are often used by photographers shooting broad landscapes to suggest the curve of the Earth.
Wide Angle Lens
“Wide angle means that you can fit a lot of stuff into the image”

A wide-angle lens is a greater apparent perspective distortion when the camera is not aligned perpendicularly to the subject: parallel lines converge at the same rate as with a normal lens, but converge more due to the wider total field. Because different lenses generally require a different camera–subject distance to preserve the size of a subject, changing the angle of view can indirectly distort perspective, changing the apparent relative size of the subject and foreground. For example, buildings appear to be falling backwards much more severely when the camera is pointed upward from ground level than they would if photographed with a normal lens at the same distance from the subject, because more of the subject building is visible in the wide-angle shot.
A macro lens is classically one lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1. Macro photography is close-up of very small subjects. Classically a macrophotograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative is greater than life size. However in modern use it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size. The ratio the subject size on the film plane (or image sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, although it now refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1.
a telephoto lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length. Telephoto lenses are sometimes broken into the further sub-types of medium telephoto: lenses covering between a 30° and 10° field of view (85mm to 135mm in 35mm film format), and super telephoto: lenses covering between 8° through less than 1° field of view (over 300mm in 35mm film format) The basic construction of a telephoto lens consists of front lens elements that, as a group, have a positive focus. The focal length of this group is shorter than the effective focal length of the lens. The converging rays from this group are intercepted by the rear lens group, sometimes called the “telephoto group,” which has a negative focus.
