    Open the camera app and touch the camera icon with the arrows around it. Presto - see yourself. Touch again to go back to back camera.

    I think the poster is actually referring to the small hole opposite the home button.

    I think it serves as a camera and light sensor on ipad2 and ipad3 and Light sensor only on ipad1.

    Someone please correct me if I'm mistaken here.

    To confirm if it is a camera turn the iPad over and look for a camera in the corner of the back side of the iPad. If one is present then it's a camera.

    Another way....do you have a camera icon on the iPad desktop? It will be there if ipad2 or ipad3 will not for ipad1 . This icon cannot be deleted so ipad2 and 3 users can't remove it if they wanted. Also if you have a FaceTime settings icon when you enter settings mode you have a camera enabled device.

    you might want to think about taking your ipad to an apple store(or some 16 year old kid that has an ipad) and asking them to give a five minute tutorial...way easier for you learn the basics of your ipad and a lot faster too then asking here
