Try closing the Camera app:
1. Double-click the Home button to reveal the Task Bar
2. Hold down the Camera app for a second or two until you see the minus sign
3. Tap the minus sign to close app
4. Tap area above Task Bar to return to Home screen
If the above doesn't solve the problem, do a reset:
Hold the Sleep and Home button down for about 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo. Ignore the red slider

My new iPads camera shuts off a second after I turn it on, what can I do ?
Is this something that has just started happening or has this alway happened? Have you tried resetting your ipad? To do this, press and hold the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons till you see the Apple logo on the screen. At this point your device will boot back up, and then try your camera app again and see if this works for you.
