    Hi all :)
    Got my iPad 2 yesterday(32g wifi)
    Went to use the camera fornthe first time this morning and when I move it inget dark grainy bits pop up . They go away when it's held still but I'm sure this is right . Just wanted someone to let me know if this is indeed how the camera is

    What app are you using? One of the default apps on the iPad does this on purpose - special effects. So let us know the app you're using to take photos and we'll see if we can help

    Hi tim thanks for the reply. I'm just started up the camera using the default camera app that comes with the iPad. Thought it might have been an affect but couldn't find any settings for the camera.

    Yes - the default app has a lot of 'special effects'....

    How do I change the special effects on the default camera ? I did think is it an effect but it only done that effect when I moved it . If I held it still it was ok ..

    A reset isn't a bad idea either.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Ok got in from work and spent a bit of time with the camera in a poorly lit room and I haven't had the issue happen again. Should I stick with it and just hope the problem has gone or is it worth taking it back ???

    So it doesn't seem to be doing the problem. Went out side and got some photos can someone confirm for me that is the right quality for the camera . It's very grainy and blurry.
    Thanks peeps :)

    That's as good as you'll get - it's only a 1 megapixel camera - nothing like the 5 megapixel in the iPhone4. It was never intended for still photography, really - it's for HD video and, for that, it's just fine....

    It comes with a 1 year warrantee in the US. If that's also true in the UK you've got a year from date of purchase to get it taken care of.
