This kit from Apple is a must-have for any iPad owner that uses a smartphone to take photos and video. The kit comes with two separate connectors: one with a USB port for directly connecting phones to the iPad (including the iPhone); and the other unit contains an SD slot for plugging camera memory cards into the iPad.
Both connectors make it easy to get photos and video into the iPad for editing, sharing and other tasks.

Sometimes you need a physical keyboard to get stuff done, but most are less than full-sized which frustrates some typists. Enter the Logitech, which serves as a case for the iPad for transport, yet opens into a full-sized keyboard.
The Logitech uses a unique butterfly technique for transforming from case to keyboard, and is an outstanding keyboard.

If a separate keyboard case is not your liking, turn your iPad into a full iOS laptop with the Clamcase. Available in black, white, or a special Storm Trooper Edition, the Clamcase is a protective case for transporting the iPad.
When it's time to work just open the lid as on any laptop, which exposes a full keyboard complete with special keys to control the iPad. The case can be used folded flat as a tablet, as a stand for watching video, in addition to full laptop operation.
