What's going on with my iPad and Skype?

A couple of times when I've used Skype on my iPad, my picture has changed for no apparent reason, with the camera appearing to pan up. Why?

I use my new iPad to Skype with my parents abroad. Twice now, they claim that my picture has changed, such that it looked as though the camera was panning slowly upward from my face to point at the ceiling, and then moving back down again, over a period of about 30 seconds. They were adamant that it wasn't an issue with pixellation, worsened image quality, or level of zoom - they say that the image was quite clear, and that it looked as though the camera had simply moved up and down. I was not touching the iPad at the time, the stand that it was on was quite firm, and I didn't see any movement from the iPad or anything wrong with my image on my end. Has anyone had this happen to them? What could possibly be the explanation?
