Should the front camera be aimed at my face?

    I've used Skype a couple of times, and I have to hold the iPad at an unnatural angle to get my face centered. Portrait or landscape doesn't matter, both are just plain wrong. I guess the camera is probably pointing straight out from the device, but I'm thinking it should be aimed toward the center a bit.

    In the UK we can only dream about what it would be like to have an iPad2 and have to worry about the angle to hold the iPad at!! :)

    Just over a week to go....yes..... I am getting my tent ready, my supplies, ... now, what have I forgotten - oh, yes - credit card!!

    Straight at you

    Just like on your MacBook Pro. Infinitely adjustable, with your hands tilting as needed.

    That was easy.

    iPad 2 Camera Offset Angle

    The camera angle is so far off I wrote a post about it, but haven't got any comments so I'm thinking either I got a defective iPad 2 camera or they're all like that and nobody cares.

    I had an iPad 2 with this fault, it was agreed as a fault and replaced by Apple UK.

    The new replacement has the same fault. I have been to PC World and their iPad 2 has this fault.

    Apply refused to replace the faulty replacement.

    If you place the iPad on it's back and a make a vertical (A big box will do by the camera edge you can check to off set angle.

    Mine is plus 5 degrees, Minus 5 degrees would be more natural! I am sure it is a fault !!!

    Not a fault at all

    Thank goodness my hands can adjust plus 180 degrees up to minus 180 degrees down. Not a problem at all.

    That was easy.

    if I hold the iPad in portrait at a comfortable angle, the front camera sees the bridge of my nose and above. it seems very badly aimed.

    I am still waiting a couple more months before I bother getting my iPad replaced (substantial light bleed). hopefully by that time this will be one of the QA fixes in production lines.

    I think the camera is fine the way it is. I think it if was angled to your face than it would throw off the angle when using it on a dock or the smart cover.
