    I couldn't uninstall the Camera app either but I can disable/or uninstall the built in webcam driver of my Laptop under "Imaging devices" in device and no more staring at my self if I accidentally open the camera app.

    Also check your settings under PC Settings > Skydrive & choose your preferences as photos from the Camera can be uploaded to Skydrive under the camera roll settings.

    With 8.1 it is a good idea to check all PC Settings to ensure all privacy settings are to your liking (if possible).
