    Does anyone get nervous holding the IP2 when taking a still photo? Keep waiting for the day it will slip from my hand while trying to balance the screen and tap the shutter. Not ideal for klutzes like me.

    You can always use 2 hands while taking photos.

    One position, I found quite useful is to have one hand hold the iPad at the side, I.e. the normal position, but then have the second hand positioned at the bottom of the screen, I.e. right where the shutter button is. That way the iPad rest on that hand, while the second hand prevents the device from toppling over.

    Lock the screen rotation in portrait mode.

    Now rotate to landscape mode. The Shutter is now conveniently on the side.

    I hold the iPad with both hands and use my thumb to press the shutter.
