Facetime camera ipod touch 5

Mine just arrived and i pressed the facetime icon but my image isnt showing up. Its just showing blank pages for favorites, recents and contact. Is the front camera not working or am i missing something? All my other apple devices show image right away with facetime. Help appreciated.

Try using the camera app and flipping the camera around to see if it works. If not then something's wrong with your front camera.

Oh. I understand. When you open up the FaceTime app on a Mac or an iPad 2 or later, most of the screen will show stuff from the front facing camera and the rest will show the contacts, favorites and recents. Since the iPhone and iPod touch does not have enough space on the screen to show whatever is on the front facing camera, it limits it to contacts, recents and favorite. Then when you FaceTime someone, you'll see whatever is on the front facing camera.

Yep, although if apple really wanted it they could have squeezed it in somewhere..

I downloaded a couple of other camera apps that work with the front camera and the camera dies work. So is correct that you have to do the contact first.

I have an iPad mini, ipad3 and nexus 7 but the touch5 is great. It does it all and the screen is great plus the rear camera is pretty decent.
