    How often do you use your Ipad 2 camera? I know it's poor quality but is it still useful or even for video?

    I only use it for FaceTime. I haven't even tried using it for pictures or recording video.

    I haven't used it at all other than showing people photo booth. If I want to take a photo or video I'd rather use my iPhone 4. Easier to hold.

    Not at all. Used it a couple times for FaceTime and once or twice to test out quality. Haven't used them since.

    Twice. Once to test FaceTime and the other to full around with photo booth.

    But to be honest I was never interested in the cameras.

    I love and use the front camera almost every day. FaceTime, photo booth, and taking pics with friends.

    My wife and I own iPhone 4's, and we never FaceTime. I don't plan on doing much FaceTime with the iPad 2, but it is nice to have. We have a DSLR for pictures, and the iPad camera kit to upload the pictures. Yesterday I used my iPad 2 to take a picture of my wife and kids at Sea World, and my wife couldn't stop laughing on stupid I looked taking a pic with the iPad.:p

    My kids do like the photo booth app. We've had many laughs with that app.

    I've had my iPad 2 since launch and I've never used the camera.

    Just use it for Facetiming here and there. My kids like to make funny faces with the camera.

    Tested FaceTime and played with photo booth once. It was a big reason why I got the iPad 2 and I never use it lol. But it's good to have I guess. If iPad gets Skype then things willnbe diff.

    Never used the back camera, But I did use the front camera to FaceTime a few times, and messed arond in photo booth a few times with my girlfriend. Other than that, never really used it to take pictures or videos. I'd rather to that on my iPhone. Better quality, and it's way easier to hold

    one time. to play with iMovie, which I already had for my iPhone. i never really wanted a camera, and in fact wish it wasn't there, given that I often go places where cameras are restricted.

    Facetime. iPad to iPad Facetime is pretty impressive by the way. The big screen makes for a different kind of experience than Facetime on the iPhone/iPod touch.

    I'm still waiting for some killer "VR" App to come out that makes use of the rear camera to super impose data over the "real" world.

    I haven't used facetime on my iPad 2, I have only used the camera a few times and that was to show people photobooth. I'm not impressed with the quality of pictures the camera on the back takes.

    I'm an iPhone 4 owner and will be an iPad 2 owner in a couple of days--I keep reading that I will hate the iPad 2 because the screen sucks and the cameras are no good compared to the iPhone 4.

    I went to Best Buy yesterday just to get my iPad 2 fix since I still don't have mine, and I found the screen to look great. I tried the facetime camera and found it to be adequate for video chat. I really don't care if my video chats aren't in HD. It would be cool, but it's not necessary.

    I held off on iPad 1 because there were no cameras and the main way I communicate with my parents is Facetime or Skype. iPad 2 solves that problem, even though it's not HD. Cripes, it's not like you're going to be using this thing as your main camera.

    Back camera: Just once to test that it works. It's as useless on a tablet as I had predicted.
    Front camera: Skyped a few times.
