Who said the iPad lacks an SD card slot or USB? Well, actually, it does, but there is a solution for you if you crave a physical camera connection. If you have an older pre-Lightning iPad, the two-part Camera Connection Kit ($29) offers two 30-pin dongles that work surprisingly well for owners of the original iPad, iPad 2, or third-gen iPad. One adapter accepts SD cards, the other has a USB port. Plug in a camera directly or pop in a memory card to import photos and movies to the iPad for viewing or editing, and sync them with a computer later. You can also <a href="http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57401068-285/secrets-of-the-ipad-camera-connection-kit/">experiment with some other surprising ways to use the USB connection</a> with other devices.
<p> If you're an owner of a new iPad with Lightning connectors released after October 2012, you have several choices: go with a separate Lightning to SD card or Lightning to USB camera adapter ($29 each), buy the Lightning to 30-pin adapter and use your original Camera connection kit, or look for a cheaper third-party solution. Either way, it helps to have one of these in your bag if you take a lot of photos...but, as cloud-based Wi-Fi uploading services have improved, and Apple's Photo Stream has made further strides, you might find it easier to import directly from the cloud.
