    I personally wouldnt see someone out of 200+ at my ceremony if they did this. I also would not care. I guess to avoid this just have an unplugged ceremony like many others have done or will do.

    @MrsEdamame:  THANK YOU!

    Seriously.  Use your iPad as a camera in the privacy of your own home where it doesn’t matter that you look stupid.  I get it, it takes nice pictures.  But how is that any more convenient then carrying around a real camera?

    I don’t own an iPad, or really mind what people do with theirs, but that picture is seriously hilarious.

    @MrsEdamame:  meh…it doesnt bother me. What I find weird is that an iPad is big to carry around with you. I would never have something like that at a wedding, theme park, show, etc. But to each his/her own. I’m 5 ft tall so something or someone is always blocking my view! Haha

    Thank you for posting this !

    I recently went to Disneyland and all these people taking pictures with their iPads during shows and parades were very distracting and annoying.

    I saw tourists in England in big groups with huge ipads out. I thought it was weird, partly because they had the cases dangling open. It looked awkward. I understand the world’s need to have these all-in-one devices now, but I’m of the camp that I want a camera that’s a camera, a kindle that just reads books, a computer that’s a computer, a phone that’s a phone, etc. Gah I’m old. I resist change. Haha.

    Agreed. We were at the aquarium and people were using them all over the place, which blocks other people’s views of the tanks. Annoying.

    They are so expensive and delicate, my mind boggles that people are happy to wave them around like that and take them places.

     

    I’ll stick with my indestructable Olympus compact thankyouverymuch.

    I really don’t care. My MIL is technology illiterate but has mastered the iPad. For some reason she just gets how to use everything on it and therefore uses it as her camera.

    I think it looks a bit ridiculous but I really don’t care what others use as their camera. I have no idea what the quality is, but if someone already has an iPad that takes good pictures and you already take it everywhere, why invest in a camera as well?
