It's a little bit complex, but the button on the bottom that's highlighted in blue? That's not the existing view you have, although that's absolutely a typical interface convention. You get on the main feed which is accessed by the home button on the lower left. Odd, I know.
Tap on the camera icon under-- facility!-- with heaven emphasize. Currently your camera will activate and you'll see a sneak peek of the image you're about to take:
To take a picture, faucet on the blue switch. To earn a (short) video, tap on the video camera icon to the right of the button.
