I'm just comprehending the fact that the viewfinder displays almost 1:1 pixels of the sensor. That's the sensor feeding 270MB/s of data to the application.

That 5 megapixel image looks great when scaled down to about 1 megapixel. Really what is the point of all those extra pixels if they're just a blurry jittery mush? And I'm not pointing the finger at Apple here, its all the people who demand more megapixels without understanding what they're getting.

Still cannot see the point in using an iPad to take pictures....

It's good to have just in case your digital camera or iPhone dies and need to take a picture.
