The iPad1 (the first one) did not come with a camera. And, there is no way to install a camera.

So, I wonder what that lens is you describe as being in the corner. A you sure you didn't buy an iPad2, which does have a camera?

You can always check by looking at the model numbers (although, having a camera is a pretty big clue that the iPad is either an iPad2 or an iPad3. Regardless, this is from a tech site that discusses the model numbers. You can look on the back of the iPad and see which model number you have:

[/QUOTE]In the short-term, the iPad 2 models can easily be identified and differentiated from the original models by the cameras, but as future iPad models have cameras as well (and the iPad 2 GSM and CDMA models are externally identical), it is useful to be able to reference the model numbers on the bottom rear of each device.

The original iPad (Wi-Fi) is model number A1219 and the original iPad (Wi-Fi/3G/A-GPS) is model number A1337, whereas the iPad 2 (Wi-Fi), iPad 2 (Wi-Fi/GSM/A-GPS), and iPad 2 (Wi-Fi/CDMA/A-GPS) have model numbers A1395, A1396, and A1397, respectively.[/QUOTE]

Hope that clarifies.

Did you check the model numbers that I posted in my previous post?

If you can, take a picture of what you see. Because I really can't visualize what you are seeing and I promise you: there is NO camera on the iPad1.

I think your talking about the light sensor in iPad 1st gen. I have an iPad 2 & my bf has iPad 1 the little round circle at top left of iPad 1 is the sensor not a camera.
Plus you should be able to tell which iPad you have from the box.
