I'm not sure why you're comparing an ipad to a DSLR, but that said the K-3 has an external mic input whereas the K-30 does not, so that's something to consider. In other aspects the two are very similar.

If you're interested in a good Pentax for video, the upcoming K-70 is the first to offer continuous video autofocus.

both K3 and k30 are better than the ipad at shooting video.
but if all you wanna do is shoot video then maybe get a camcorder.
they're easier to use. with dslr you have to learn to manual focus. get a go pro.
