    If you're not planning to work on the files on the iPad, why put them on it at all? Use more or larger camera media.

    The options Freebird mentioned (Mobi and AirStash) won't work currently- they send data to the iPad, but you can't save from the iPad to them. The AirStash will reportedly get limited "Save To" capability later this month.

    I use a Seagate Dockstar with a 1.5 tb harddrive. You can view or upload or download pics to the harddrive. Also watch videos from it

    Try networking the iPad to a NAS drive, the WD My World Book is a nice one, the get file browsed from the app store, simple to set up and works great
