For Seniors: Capture Movies with iPad 2

iPad 2 sports two video cameras you can use to capture your own movies. You can e-mail videos you capture, or simply display your movies on the iPad screen. If you purchase the iMovie app (a longtime mainstay on Mac computers), you can edit the videos you take before you share or play them.

  1. To capture a video, tap the Camera app on the Home screen.

    The Camera app opens.

  2. If needed, use the Camera/Video slider to switch from the still camera to the video camera.


    The video camera becomes active.

  3. To switch between the front and back cameras, tap the icon in the top right corner of the screen.

    The view out the camera you selected appears onscreen.

    Before you start recording, you might want to make sure you know where the camera lens is, because while holding the iPad and panning, you can easily put your fingers directly over the lens and accidentally ruin your movie!

  4. Tap the Record button to begin recording the video.

    The Record button flashes when the camera is recording.

  5. When you’re finished, tap the Record button again.

    Your new video is now listed in the bottom left corner of the screen.
