    On the iPad go into:
    Settings
    General
    Reset
    Try "reset settings"
    If that don't work try "erase all content and settings" which will set back to factory default. Camera app should work then.
    You should be able to sync your apps/music back thru iTunes as normal.

    "Reset settings" brought the front facing camera back to life in photo booth only. When I switch to the rear camera it then freezes the front camera and I cant get it working again with out trying "reset settings" The camera app still had the closed shutter.

    I'm restoring the ipad to default.....

    Factory restore resulted in the same thing. Native camera and photo booth apps aren't working. I can use photo booth with front facing camera only, when I try to switch to the rear camera it just freezes the front facing camera everytime I pres the flip camera button. FaceTime still works fine the camera doesn't freeze....(when not on a call, don't want to test with anyone at 1AM)

    Anymore thoughts...??

    p.s. Thanks for all the help so far!! This is just frustrating...

    From the comments looks like he had to have his IPad replaced.

    Apple was very prompt with their phone call to me. The agent stated that if I've tried to restore to factory and that didn't work then they will replace the IPad. New one shipping today. (Warranty claim say battery life though. Kind of odd) she also stated it was the first IPad2 she had done a warranty replacement on, and that she had never heard of that problem before. Weather that was lip service or not at least they were good to offer a replacement very promptly.

    Had same problem. Several restores and hard reboots didn't work. Then I simply turned FaceTime on and off in Settings and that restored the camera. Crazy.
