How do you take pictures with kindle fire HD ?

Posted on Dec 21, 2012 8:19:09 PM PST
If you have the latest update, there is a little camera icon on the photo tab that is used to take pictures. The camera is front facing, so it's a little awkward, but it works.

The camera does indeed work but trying to get the picture you want is almost impossible as you have to have the camera facing the subject. When you do that you have to constantly adjust the vertical and horizontal and keep looking at the picture face to see if you have what you want. I think that having the camera on the front and not be able to look through a lense on the back makes it much harder to take a good picture. If and when I manage to take a good picture it is very good!

Josie, did you have a reason to respond to a thread from 2012?

FYI, the Fires with only the front facing cameras were mainly sold for use with video messaging (ie Skype). They weren't marketed for taking pictures.
