I have to share though that I took my first ipad on EE and the poor thing got totally confused and never worked properly afterwards. I took it to Apple and they were perplexed - never saw that before, but they replaced it and my new Ipad LOVES EE!!
Maybe someone can take the Yeti to Apple, and they'll replace for an arm swinging one!

Someone wearing a large hat doesn't bother me. First of all, they usually don't hold it at arm's length up above their head. Second, I can see the hat when I choose where to stand or sit and can choose another spot if needed.

BUT. People taping or taking pictures with an ipad do not stand with their ipad out extended over their head in advance of the show, so you have no idea that it's coming until the show starts and by then it's generally too late to find another spot. Same thing with putting kids on your shoulders last minute. I think it's equally as rude.

How waterproof are those iPads? Do they have the power to withstand the misting fans? Just asking because if someone pulled out an iPad and held it in front of me, I'd get so hot under the collar I'd need to start misting...

I'll be there tomorrow for a week. I highly doubt I will pull out my ipad just to snap a picture, that's what our dslr is for. However, I will use it for the My Disney Experience app

I just returned from Disneyland a few days ago and I was amazed at the number of folks I saw using their Ipads to take pictures or film events (such as the x-mas parades).

I'm not about to tell anyone what to do with their property...heck I carried both of my dslrs with me throughout the entire trip. I did make a concerted effort to make sure my photography did not interfere with other's enjoyment of the rides or attractions. My greatest concern using my ipad as my camera would be accidentally dropping it. Also...while the picture quality has certainly improved it does not provide as much flexibility with my dslr.

Talk about irritating? Sit behind some clown video recording Candlelight Processional with an Apple tablet . Sometimes you have to wonder what goes through people's heads.

I truly think some of these people try to use the ipad as a "status" symbol.

"look at me, i am cool, i have an ipad'

this has been an issue with me since march 2010 when the ipad 2 came out (1st one with camera)

overnight, you started seeing them pop up everywhere. Yes, i have one too, but it doesnt go out in public... its too big. the camera is crap. it was made for face time. even the one on the back. its a face time camera...period.

I'm not much of a photophile or a videophile when it comes to going out and doing activities ... to me, it's a waste to spend a lot of time taking pictures and videos while you're at Disneyworld because it's more about making memories rather than looking at pictures later ... this has caused some arguments with my wife over the years.

But that being said, I was glancing down at a woman that was recording the entire IllumiNations show on her iPad and couldn't stop wondering ... "when are you ever going to watch that? And how is it going to be 1/100th as good as watching it live and not fiddling with and watching your video screen?"

I guess everyone has to do it at least once though (I did too) to find out that later when you show your friends back home how impressive it was, and then get the "oh huh ... yeah, that's nice" that it's not interesting on your phone or iPad.

I got an iPad 2 for Christmas last year and not once on our WDW summer trip or my DL trip did it occur to me to use it as a camera. I did see a lot of people using them though but seems like entirely too much carrying it around. Plus the camera is a little low quality. I'd much rather just carry around my iPhone. Picture quality is so much better on the iPhone.

Plus I am a very forgetful person and I'm worried I'd set it down and forget it.

On a side note I bought one of the Disney iPad cases and they fit mine perfectly. I love them, even if it was a little on the expensive side. But that's all the "Disney" I want for my iPad haha!

Wow I never thought my iPad mini would be the next thing to annoy people. I'm sorry but I do tke pictures with it, and why should I not? Because its rude to others? Well it's kinda rude to constantly complain about what others do. First it's sitting middle of the row, then it's saving tables, now it's pictures with iPads? What's next? I think as long as people are not use them when they are not supposed to there is no problem, but I guess everyone will complain about something.

If you see me in the parks feel free to tap me on the shoulder for using my iPad as a camera but I'm not gonna stop, I can't please everyone every minute.

We encountered this for the first time last September in Yellowstone National Park. I call them padographers and they drive me crazy. It is a big distraction and the pad up in the air can really block the view of folks in the back.

The issue is that when someone lifts up an iPad and films something like entire show or parade it blocks the view of those behind them much more than just a small camera.

Also if its a darker show, its just like if you had a 10 inch wide view finder on your camera.

I'm sure others wil chime in on the rest of your post.
