As far as I know there are no CCD cameras that can be used with an iPad. You could control a DSLR though with an add-on like this: http://www.camranger.com/

Last time I looked at it (I have an iPad) the USB connector would only allow download not "running" a camera, you get a message saying cannot supply current or some such if you try. Basically as the first reply suggested you need a camera that will talk to a WiFi device that the iPad can also connect to.

If your cam was connected to a Cheapy PC, then you could use any cCD you like. There are many iPod remote desktop apps to then control the PC over the net, blue tooth or wifi.

I use remote desktop over the net for CCD control, stupidly simple.
