    This is not another iPad2 camera question. But I really want to carry a camera in my iPad bag.

    I am a photographer (teacher and professional shooter) so I may be asking for too much, at least in the constraints of wanting something small to fit in a small iPad bag. Like I want a nice long optical zoom.

    But mainly, is there anything that would compliment the iPad? Like have wifi to connect to the iPad??

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    There's an app that lets you use the iphone's camera though ipad.

    Otherwise you would have to go camera kit.

    Canon S92 and Canon G11 are both fantastic choices imo.

    As Meever mentioned, stick to anything Canon, you can't go wrong.

    Any idea what this app is?

    Also, Nikon > Canon ;-)

    Canon s95 (perhaps what's meant above) or a Panasonic GF1/Olympus Pen/Sony NEX these are compact with a fixed pancake lens but not with a zoom lens mounted.

    Depends on your budget. The Sony NEX is a great little camera. I just bought one for my wife and to compliment my D90. I was a little worried with some of the lens reviews but the pictures are excellent.

    I think I spent $700 for the two lens kit but I think there was a rebate at the time.

    I have an S90 and its a great little camera with a surprisingly good sensor. You can drop an EyeFi SD card in and it will connect via any wifi spot available.

    I have an Olympus E-PL1, eye-fi SD card, and Shuttersnitch app. I can take pictures with my camera and if just jpeg without raw it will show up in shuttersnitch in a few seconds (raw+jepeg) takes a little longer. I carry a virgin mobile mifi so always have a wifi network that the iPad and camera/SD card are connected to. Also you can just have the camera out and take a bunch of pictures and the when you are back home or where ever you usually have wifi it will transfer the new pictures over then.

    Works well for my uses. Right now only the jpegs transfer but the site says with 4.2 it will support raw.

    Odd that a pro photographer is asking in a computer (ok, I know the iPad is not a computer ;)) forum for camera advice :eek:

    Anyway, G11 has now been replaced by G12. Good cameras, but not sooo compact. DPReview is certainly a good resource for these things.
