The iPad currently lacks a built-in camera.

And some of you are combining your pitchfork technology with your torch technology and planning on waving flaming pitchforks outside 1 Infinite Loop (and Steve’s office) about this.

Still, there might be a solution to this.

Headlight Software’s Camera for iPad [App Store, US$0.99] allows iPad users to take photos on their iPad using their iPhone camera. Per iLounge, users load the Camera for iPad app on both their iPhone and iPad and can then establish a Bluetooth connection between the two devices.

Once connected, users can take photos on the iPad from the iPhone camera. A live view is shown on the iPad screen and users can zoom in and out and rotate the view using standard pinch and swipe gestures. Photos are taken at the maximum resolution of the iPhone camera and automatically transferred to the iPad over Bluetooth and stored in the iPad’s Saved Photos album.

The application can also be used with a second- or third-generation iPod touch or another iPhone 3G or 3GS although the original iPhone and first-generation iPod touch are not currently supported.

Camera for iPad is a Universal app and requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later to install and run.
