The iPad is equipped with a much improved camera on the back for shooting still images and video, while the front facing camera is utilized for Face Time video conferences.
Use the rear facing camera to take a few photos. Once you've snapped a few images press the image in the lower left corner of the camera app to view your camera roll or from the home screen select the Photo app with Sunflower image.
Use the camera app on the iPad to shoot a video and edit the video with the regular camera app. For more advanced editing try iMovie, Reel Director or Splice.
Create a Face Time account or log in with your current .mac account. Share your account name with the person sitting beside you and have them call you. You'll now be able to hold a video conference with one another. Obviously much better suited for longer distance conversations than two people in the same room.
