iPad 2 Photo Quiz: Which Picture Came From Which Camera?

We're currently in the process of rating the iPad 2 camera's image and video quality against those of competing tablets (and a few other devices). In the meantime, why not try to identify which of these photos were snapped with which device?

Below are our unmarked sample test shots from the iPad 2, the Motorola Xoom, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab. As bases of comparison for our subjective evaluations, we've also included snapshots from the iPhone 4, the iPod Touch, and the Canon PowerShot S95.

Can you tell which photo was snapped with which camera? If you're familiar with the hardware specs of each device, you may realize that some clues are lurking in each shot (and yes, we've scrubbed the EXIF data for each photo, so don't even think about cheating).

We have two pages of test shots in this quiz, and the order of the test shots has been shuffled from page to page. Post your best guesses--and your opinions about which shot represents the best image quality--in our comments section below. We'll update this page with the answers (Update: The answers are here.) and a link to our review of each tablet's image quality (Update: The image-quality roundup is here.) as soon as we're done testing (Update: We're done testing).

Photo 1: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 2: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 3: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 4: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 5: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 6: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Our Color Accuracy and Exposure Tests

Here's another round of test shots from each device, and this time, it's the test shot we use to judge each camera's overall color fidelity and exposure quality. We don't use a flash for this test (hint, hint), so it may be a little harder to guess which image came from which device.

Photo 1: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 2: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 3: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 4: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 5: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Photo 6: iPad, Xoom, Galaxy Tab, iPhone 4, iPod Touch, or Canon S95?

Time to post your picks in our comments section below. The answers are on the next page, and video samples from each tablet are on this page.
