    During the event, they only referred to the cameras as "video" cameras. Also, I didn't see any hands-on photos or reports of photos being taken.

    Can you use the iPad 2 as a still photo camera?

    I'm sure .99$ and camera+ would do the trick!

    I think that you must be able to at least use the front camera as a still camera for PhotoBooth.

    I was also confused over the back camera but thanks to the above poster for confirming that the back camera does take photos :)
