    I just want something simple. I don't need anything fancy at all.

    I know android has an app called qik that can do this. It sends the video over 3g, but there is a 5 second lag. Search the appstore and maybe itunes has it too.

    Yes, there's an iPad app called (I believe) Camera For iPad which connects over Bluetooth to stream your iPhone's camera.

    Camera A and Camera B is as simple as you can get. I don't know the distance that it will operate at but believe it is normal Bluetooth distance.

    The set up allows you to take pictures on your iPhone from your iPad, one of the advantages to this is that the iPad makes for a much larger "viewfinder."

    There's also an app called ustream which streams a live video feed to any computer and I believe also any other iDevice

    The Justin TV app allows you to broadcast your phone's camera via their site. Create an account, login and view from computer. Not high quality though.

    Thanks for all of the advice!

    Are there that broadcast near instantly?

    I've tried "Camera for the iPad" and it has a pretty decent lag to it...

    i have an app on my iPhone called "Mini Webcam" and it broadcasts the camera, all you have to do is enter the IP address it shows, on your computer, ipad etc on the same network to see the broadcast, and you can select different levels of quality , the lowest quality, gives very little lag. and it's free. so worth a try.

    i like to use it as a lookout when i'm expecting a delivery.

    and before you say anything, no i am not the developer, nor affiliated with the app in any way lol
