Hey, I'm Skylar. The question I hear pretty often is how do I connect a camera to my iPad for video conferencing? Well, while you can use Skype and FaceTime and a couple of other Voice of IP applications for iPad, the first generation actually had no camera capabilities, so no video conferencing on that beast. But, on the second generation, third generation, forth generation and iPad Mini, all of them have a FaceTime HD camera on the front of the device, and it's a pretty good camera. The cool thing about is that it's built in and it works really well, you don't look bad so your presentation in the meeting will be alright. As I said before, Skype is a really good option for doing conferencing, FaceTime is wonderful for communicating with one person or say two people who are in the same room, but it can't connect to multiple users simultaneously. So really if you want to use iPad as a video conferencing tool I recommend, well the best thing would be the forth generation iPad with retina display or an iPad Mini, because both of them can connect to LTE networks and most of those applications can work over cellular now, so you could be able to do voice conferencing wherever you were. That's it in a nutshell. Thanks for watching. I'm Skylar.
