"My photo experience with the iPad 64GB WiFi Cell"



Hi guys,
Thought I would share my experience with my new iPad and some apps,
I initially bought the iPad to try and replace my laptop on trips away
All I really needed is a compact device for communication and the ability to view the odd raw file uploaded from the camera and share some jpeg images with others, both on the net and as a good image viewer

Syncing with iTunes was a start, I have all my favourite images there, I was then able to sort them into albums like landscape, close-up etc

iTunes will not transfer raw files with the sync but you can transfer a raw file using the file transfer option. I cannot see a real need to do this but the option is there, IMHO, you would normally convert the files to jpeg and resize a little

The next challenge was to upload some raw images from the camera. There are various options to do this, at first I tried my Verbatum multi card reader, the device, (iPad), prompted a message, "this device requires too much power and will not work!"
I Then purchased an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit
Worked as expected and uploaded with the option to select files to upload
Note: You will need to carry a USB cable to do this!

I now needed some apps for possible edits and to be able to convert files to jpeg and resize as required for email and the net

I purchased the following apps,
PhotoRaw,
iPhoto, and
PS Express

When files are uploaded from the camera to the iPad, an album is created in Photos called, "All Imported"
You can then click on the PhotoRaw app and convert to various jpeg sized with a set choice of choosing the longest site

The jpegs are automatically transferred to "Camera Roll" album where you can transfer to any other album that has been created

As for the other 2 apps, well, as expected, these have limited processing options but good for a little "Tweak" if needed,
After all, the iPad does have its limitations but still "punches above its weight" IMHO

Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed

Hi Gary,

Nice use of the iPad. I have also found a couple of photography reference apps that are nice to have on hand in the field or on vacation. One is TPE or the The Photographers Ephemeris. It tells you where and when the sun and moon will rise and set based on your input of a location. This can be done in advance by date. Really helpful for planning a good golden light shot.

For editing, I also like Filterstorm. It has a bit of a learning curve but seems to go where other applications stop. Photogene I and II are both good basic editing apps. Snapseed and ColorSplash are fun. Even the iPhoto app is a great one for all around editing.

The one thing I am waiting for Apple to add is the ability to delete ALL photos from an album at one time!!

Thank you for the heads-up Carol,
I dont really want to do too much PP with the iPad, just enough power when I need a small tweak for email
The TPE app sounds like a good option
After all, we here at Nikonians all shoot perfect images straight out of the camera! Now, why am I shooting raw again?
Regards,
Gary

HaHa! Of course we shoot perfect shots right out of the camera. Then we make them even better with a little tweak!

Another interesting app is Nikon Lenses. It is a list of all the Nikon lens with their specifications and some useful reviews. Then, for fun I tried the Sunny16 app. The app gives combinations of settings you can consider for different kinds of shots.

Happy shooting.

Thank you Carol,
May have to wait for the 1TB iPad with all these apps!

+1 TPE; that's an awesome app for planning (perhaps not quite as good as what a friend of mine used to do with Flight Simulator, but still quite excellent). I use it all the time.

There's also a good book about using the iPad called iPad for Photographers (note, though, that I just saw that a second edition is coming out in May).

Another good use, though, is to have copies of manuals available in iBooks.

And with a D4, you can get a wireless router (like this one) to use the iPad as your viewfinder for certain things.

Tks for the heads-up,
Had a bit of time with the iPad now,
"she ain't no replacement for a computer" but good for the occasional raw image check in the field, and of course sending the odd email or post here
Found the iPad a great travelling option, being small and light and don't have to pack all the other computer gear helps a lot
Regards,
Gary
