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

My dad texted me tonight and said that he came into a little extra money and wants me to chose between an iPad or a camera.....
Well, first off I was shocked.....what a blessing!!!!!
Now, i can not decide.....what would you do?
here are the factors......
I do not have a camera or an iPad.....
we homeschool so I could use the iPad......
I also would love to capture my kids pictures on my own before they grow up!

Do ipads have a built in camera? Most tablets, smartphones, etc...have cameras and i have a cheap digital that takes pretty darn good pictures. If you want to really get into takeing awesome quality pictures go with the camera I'd probably do the ipad though. Either way, thats awesome!

I don't even know what an iPad does...but I totally LOVE photography, so I'd vote CAMERA!! Mine is broke and I'd esp love a new one right now.

The iPad has a 5MP camera, that's what I would choose Unless you're really wanting to learn photography and could get a DSLR or something...that would be fun too! I would just be afraid of not really getting into it and not putting a fancy camera to use.

Go with the iPad. You'll have it for homeschooling and it has a camera!

There are a ton of great apps for the Ipad that would enrich your homeschooling and even be a substitute teacher on days when you're just not up to it.

I'd vote camera, hands down! We have a desktop PC and iPods, and I have no interest in an iPad. I adore my DSLR though.
