The new iPad lands tomorrow and, among other updates, it has a real camera instead of the nonsense offered on the iPad 2. Yes, the 5MP shooter on the back should take good pictures now and, as a result, an entire new world of iPad image manipulation will be opened. Sure, you will still look like a dork while using a tablet to snap pictures but at least you’ll get decent pictures in the process! One of the first apps updated to take serious advantage of the new iPad’s camera is iStopMotion for iPad 1.2 from Boinx Software. Optimized for the 2012 iPad, it now supports “the new iPad’s iSight Camera, video recording in full 1080p HD, and optimized for the Retina display”. As Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software notes
The new iPad is the dream machine for running iStopMotion for iPad 1.2. The much improved optics of the built-in camera make for much nicer image quality, the improved performance of the new iPad allows us to support full 1080 HD formats, and the app just looks gorgeous on the Retina display.
In addition to supporting the 5-Megapixel iSight camera, the app now records video in full 1080p HD and lets you export in full 1080p HD video to YouTube, Dropbox or the Camera Roll. iStopMotion for iPad 1.2 is available on the App Store at a special price of 4.99 USD. (Beginning March 18, 2012, iStopMotion for iPad will be priced at 9.99 USD.) You can grab it here. You can also get the iStopMotion Remote Camera – Boinx Software here.
