Lightning to SD Card Reader Imported Photos and iCloud Backup
If I import photos from an SD card using the Lightning to SD Card Reader will those pictures be backed up by my iCloud backup? All the iCloud documentation refers to backing up the "cameral roll". Are these photos included in that terminology or is there something I need to do to make sure these photos get backup up as well?

For me, yes. Even on my previous iPad, which was an original iPad, any photos I imported via a card reader were uploaded to iCloud during my next backup. This has also happened with my iPad Air. But, if you are unsure, you can always test a few photos at home, before you try to do it on vacation, and find out it does not work, for some reason (although I can't think of any reason why it would not work).
