Why does my iPad camera flash "AE/AF Lock" when I'm taking a photo?

The iPad and iPhone camera app both feature auto-exposure and auto-focus. If you see "AE/AF Lock" on your display this means you activated the auto-exposure/auto-focus lock. You can remove the lock by tapping your screen on the spot where you want to camera to focus.
