You can use your iPhone 3GS as a webcam for the iPad.

Download Camera A as well as Camera B. One is free the other is .99

I havent heard of any external camera's for the iPad.

What you could do is buy your self an inexpensive digital camera and get the connection kit for the iPad.

This will allow you to take a bunch of photos, then upload them to your iPad.
Find one with GPS built into it and then you photos will be Geo-Tagged and should work with the iPads "Places".

Someone at some point is going to figure out a way to make a cam that clips onto the Dock connector of the iPad. Remember, there's no "wrong" way to hold the iPad, so such a device (if the iPad is held "upside down") could easily work.

Maybe not tomorrow, but at some point.

And yes, I expect that "the iPad 2" or whatever they'll end up calling it will "inherit" the sort of cam system the iPhone 4 has (at least for front-facing, anyway). But contrary to a lot of people, I don't think that will arrive next April. I think you'll have to wait longer.

If you're asking a question about a specific piece of hardware which likely not many people have heard of, and you really expect an answer, you'd do well to post a link or several links to said product. Sure, we can Google it, but it's really proper etiquette for the OP to provide all the info. Why should your audience do all the work ?
