Tablets may be awkward to shoot pictures with, but the front-facing cameras are a great feature to have for video chat. Many of the large tablet computers with good cameras are actually for business users. The slate style devices are $1,000 and more, but for consumers, the popular devices are getting better as far as cameras go. Most smartphones have better cameras for obvious reasons. They are easier to carry and you're much more likely to take out your phone to take a picture than you are with a tablet.

Cameras are often measured by megapixels, and while those numbers can sometimes be misleading on a smartphone, they matter more for tablets. That's because the resolution on many of the devices is so low. Resolution on a one megapixel device will be much lower than a five megapixel one. But an eight megapixel camera my not be that much better than a five megapixel camera.

The top five tablet cameras are not going to replace your camera or even your smartphone, but they are the best ones if you are a shutterbug. One notable exclusion here is the iPad. It's cameras are not great, even though they do make decent videos. Start the slideshow to see the top five tablet cameras.
