That is what Apple claimed at their launch on the 16th October. It is the thinnest iPad ever and the features are:-
– a slow-mo camera mode
– a panoramic feature
– iSight camera – 8 megapixel
iOS 8.1 makes full use of these features. In particular, I like Replay which is an visually better alternative to iMovie and can create seamlessly with iPad Air 2 some great movies.
