Apple on their iPad page released some info on a camera connection kit for the iPad. It will allow you to hook up a SD card or camera via USB to the iPad. I wish it wasn’t a adapter since they are so easy to lose but at least the functionality is there. Another feature that I have been waiting to hear about is the ability to hook up a flip video and do some minor video editing. I’m hoping since they have a camera connection kit it will be possible.
The Camera Connection Kit gives you two ways to import photos and videos from a digital camera. The Camera Connector lets you import your photos and videos to iPad using the camera’s USB cable. Or you can use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from the camera’s SD card.
