Photo Booth on iPad 2

One of the new features of the iPad 2 is a Photo Booth app for use with its new built in cameras.

Things are about to get pretty twisted. Photo Booth takes snapshots of you and your friends in ways far from ordinary — from funny to artsy to really bizarre. Make a few faces, snap a few snaps, and see your wacky side.

The iPad 2 has two cameras, a front-facing VGA camera and a 720p HD rear-facing camera. According to Apple, Photo Booth uses the front-facing camera, but the screenshots seem to point to the ability of using the rear-facing camera as well.

Using Photo Booth is simple. Just hold up the iPad and snap away. When using the front-facing camera, Photo Booth will flash the screen white just prior to taking the photo to add light to your face, much like the Mac version of Photo Booth.

Once you're done twisting up your face, doubling your head, or making yourself look like an alien, a comic book character, or an X-ray, share your photos via email or assign them as contact photos. Everything in Photo Booth is saved in your photo library, so sharing to Facebook, Twitter, or other social platforms will also be a breeze.

Photo Booth will be a fun addition to iPad 2 for children and adults alike. Are you looking forward to playing around with Photo Booth on the iPad 2?

Follow along for a few more screenshots!
