How to Capture Video with Your iPad 2

In iPad 2, two video cameras that can capture video from either the front or back of the device make it possible for you to take videos that you can then edit and share with others. To record a video, follow these steps:

1

Tap the Camera app on the Home screen.

The Camera app opens.

2

Use the Camera/Video slider in the bottom-right corner to switch from the still camera to the video camera.

If you want to switch between the front and back cameras, tap the icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

3

Tap the Record button to begin recording the video.

Before you start recording, make sure you know where the camera lens is (in the top-center portion of the device on the front and top-right side of the back). While holding the iPad and panning, you can easily put your fingers directly over the lens!

The Record button flashes when the camera is recording.

4

To stop recording, tap the Record button again.

A thumbnail link to your new video is now displayed in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
