    Hello everyone,
    I'm new on the forum and i wanted to share my experience of buying my ipad 2 with you!

    So first of all i live in England and as you know the ipad 2 only came out a few days ago here. After spending 7 nights in a row on the website of my local Apple store to book one i finally managed to book the precious Ipad 2 white 16gb Wifi!
    I went to collect it and all went very smoothly!

    When i came back home i checked if my screen was infected by the infamous backlight bleeding and i thought it was since my screen was quite light around corners in the dark but it didnt look like a major issue to me. I then dowloaded garage band and after messing around with the guitar for a few minutes my ipad froze completly and i had to do a hard reset.. Not the most convincing start lol. Finally i tried the cameras and filmed my garden by a cloudy day and... Surprise !!! Something very odd occured! Here is the video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6VluZ4IaRg&feature=youtube_gdata_player
    I made an appointement with a genius yesterday and decided to show him the video. He pulled a very surprised face when he saw the video and admitted that they had never seen it before (considering that the ipad two only came out a couple of weeks ago it may be normal...) so he took my ipad and left for a few minutes. He came back a few minutes later and immediately offered me to replace my Ipad since he thought it was a defect of the camera and he asked me if he could make a copy of the video to send it to the Apple technicians for examination. I also mentionned the "bleeding" screen and he said that it was alright... I asked him to check the screen of the new one in a dark room which he did and he said it was fine too, althought i still see slight patches of lights around the corners of the screen which is apparently normal according to the genius! So to conclude very satisfied with the customer service of Apple my replacement ipad seems to work perfectly fine and so far garageband hasnt crashed either !

    Well, it's not that your English is an issue, but rather that your story is boring and will put most people who read it to slee........(snoring)

    Actually, I found your experience very interesting ... which is why I am reading this forum to begin with!! I want to learn about different situations that arise and how people handle them.

    I am still waiting for mine to be delivered (no Apple store within 200 miles, and forget about Best Buy or Walmart, they just don't have any in stock even after a month!

    No need to be rude, folks!

    That was an interesting video, OP. Can't say that I've seen that issue before.

    Thank you for your nice comment, my intention wasnt to be boring but just to give my personal experience of buying an ipad and the consequences of it... also to warn people that if they had the same camera problem it could be easily sorted!
    I also go on forums to read about people experiences and find out tips etc... Hope you will receive your ipad soon you'll love it !! ;)

    Apple must be rubbing their hands together that so many people are so happy to keep running backwards and forwards to the Genius Bar.

    I wouldn't have. I just did because i found it funny someone else did the same thing as me. Might be a reason why. Sorry I didn't mean to be a d*ck but sometimes there's reasons why people are rude. Or realistic.

    Well in guess I am a real ass. After reading some of the other post the camera issue displayed is intriguing. I actually had something like that in a camera and it ended up being one of the focusing sensors.
    Is the iPad 2 a multi sensor camera?

    Some of these, not necessary yours, are trolls that try to make apple look badly. I got both iPad 1 and 2 and they are perfect. Why me! :D sure, a few users will be struck by defects. If so, get a replacement. We know that Apple is not perfect and mistakes occur in production. Perhaps, they did not handle products well in transporting them. Quality checkers are not doing well or simply not perfect. There are androids who pretend to be apple fan and make up stories. So, if stories sound unbelievable, they are fake.

    In the land of no hills and red dirt.
    After seeing the sky mysteriously change color over the English scenery in the video....I have to fight the urge to make a Doctor Who joke.

    Interesting, I wonder if it turned blacked because those areas were over exposed.
