This may sound selfish, but how much does an iPad cost? $500? Is he spending the same on a camera or will be be spending $2000 on a camera?

I world choose an iPad. Enrich the homeschooling. Take pictures/video (and you can download them to a pc). Apps in the car for trips. You can do way more!

I just have a smart phone and take pretty good pictures of my kid. So, I'm sure an iPad will take better pictures.

I don't really want to know the costs. Btw. I was just saying keep that in mind. You can find a nice camera for pretty "cheap". If he is going to spend the money on an iPad, "I" (selfishly... even though I am totally NOT a selfish person) would rather have a $500 iPad than a $200 camera! Lol I say that because if it were my dad he would know nothing about cameras...lol

I sound super ungrateful with my comment if I were in your shoes....and I don't mean to sound that way. I would actually decline the offer. BUT, if I HAD to choose.... that would be my thinking/reason behind my choice.

I vote ipad. I absolutely LOVE mine. It will be great for homescholing plus it comes with a built in camera (although it's not as good as a regular one).

Re: I can not decide on a gift someone wants to GIVE me ???

I would get the camera. We have 2 smart phones, a tablet, an iPod touch, and an iPad. Our camerabroke last year and I miss it. It was a simple point and shoot, but it took better pictures than any of the others do. We have the iPad only because ODD won it from the library, and the tablet because we travel a lot (and DH takes it on deployments). We also homeschool, and while there are cool apps for it, we rarely use them. There are so many websites on the internet that we go for the computer before the iPad.

Hands down Ipad. We homeschool too and LOVE, love, LOVE them! And it is a decent camera AND captures video. I'd buy a cheapie camera and a have the Ipad as the gift. What a great dad!!!

I really want an iPad (my dh has one) but I'd go for the camera. But then, I'm a hobby photographer! I'm a bit biased. As awesome as iPads are, gadgets break but photos tell a story and capture moments you can't have back.

I agree with the first one who commented. I think the iPad is a much better choice because you could do a lot of things with it. You can only take pictures with a camera and even the iPad already has its own. I would take the iPad if I were you.
