As much as we deplore the use of tablets to take photographs (seriously, people, it's not a good look when out in public), the Toshiba Excite 10 SE is a significant step-down from the Toshiba AT300 in terms of image-making.
The original version had 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras akin to the iPad 4, but the Excite 10 SE sees those stats reduce to just 3MP and 1.2MP.
Put simply, you won't want to use the Excite 10 SE as a camera, and not just because of the low resolution sensor on offer, but also because there's no flash either.
Frankly we're not sure why Toshiba didn't remove the rear camera altogether, since anyone buying a tablet is sure to have access to either a compact camera or smartphone that can shoot images in much better detail.

However, if pushed, know that the Toshiba Excite 10 SE's basic Android camera app includes options to tweak white balance (incandescent, daylight, florescent and cloudy), nudge the exposure and use scene modes (action, night, sunset, party).
Stills are noisy when taken in anything but bright, outdoor conditions, and even then they lack detail. Video is shot in the 3GP format, though the results are scarred softness, noise and blur if even a gust of wind dares to arrive mid-pose.
As a Skype camera, however, the front-shooter just about does the job.
