    I hope Sandyman comes back with more news.

     

    While I don't have an iPad, a number of users I help support do and they are all into photography as I am.

    Yeah, this is annoying.

     

    Obviously I'm also into photography but I do all manipulation on the Mac.  The pics are not loaded onto the iPad until I'm completely finished with them.  I keep them on the iPad for "show and tell."

     

    I just came across this IOS app, available from the Apple app store, that just might help the OP.  Unless I missed it, there is no listing of supported cameras but the writeup states that the free Lite version can be used to confirm that the app supports the desired camera.

    Thanks.  Keep us informed.

     

    I took a quick peek at your web site and, obviously, you're as comfortable with this discussion as Allan and I.

    Here is what I missed!

     

    It looks like the worst that will happen is that the OP will need this app.

     

    Edit...

    A disclaimer:

     

    Important note on the Apple Camera Connection Kit

     

     

    The list on this page represents cameras that PhotoRaw supports. However, be aware you will not be able to import images from an SD card via the Apple Camera Connection Kit unless the camera in question is also supported by Apple. You will still be able to import images into PhotoRaw via any of the alternate means - email, iTunes file sharing, via file sharing programs such as DropBox, etc. For a current list of cameras that are supported by the Apple Camera Connection Kit, see the supported cameras page on the Apple site.

    I'm not sure how to read that list.  I am recently attempting to get my camera and iPad2 to talk.  Wtih the Camera Connection Kit I have no problem reading the card from my D90 and getting thumbnails.  However, I cannot view the photo without importing to the iPad.  My purpose is just to view them but I guess that is not a possibility.

    I have an iPad 2 and a Canon 600D. It uploaded the RAW fine and I could edit it in an app like piRAWnha no problems. Also imported it into Filterstorm and did things that way too with success. Didn't try doing a USB transfer but if you try to email it it seems to only attach the jpeg embedded in the RAW file.
