What iPad to use?  The best are the iPad Pro 11 series, Air 4 or 5 and Mini 5 since they have a 12 megapixil cameras. The most cost effective are the iPads 6,7,8.but have only an 8 megapixel camera. 

Will it fit all the slit lamps in my office?  Yes that at the heart of usability. The custom eyepiece collars fits most slit lamp!

Do you prefer an iPad or iPhone?  Either takes great pictures. The iPad is easier to compose a photo because of the enlargement of the screen. It also shows more detail to show the patient. The phone is the most compact. 

What are the advantages of an eyepiece camera over a beam splitter?  Beam splitters steal light both from the camera and the doctor degrading the image. Eyepiece cameras allows 100% of the light and gives a better view to both the doctor and camera. 
How good is the Apple camera?  Beats most slit lamp cameras!
