When I upload those picts directly to my iPad 2,
How do you import to your iPad? Reading the card using the camera connection kit? Or uploading from your Mac?
The specifications of the camera connection kit say for the supported image file types
iPad and the Camera Connection Kit support standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.
but I doubt, that this means that the iPad does any raw processing at all. When I upload raw images from my Lumix FZ28 or FZ 50, I see beautiful photos on the iPad, but the iPad is only showing me the jpeg embedded in the raw, or the jpeg of the raw&jpeg pair.
Also, when I import single raw images (not raw + jpeg pairs), only the embedded thumbnail is displayed and has a very poor resolution.
So, have you been importing raw+jpeg pairs or single raw files? In the case of the raw+jpeg pairs you probably are seeing the in-camera processing in the jpeg of the pair on your iPad.

"How do you import to your iPad? Reading the card using the camera connection kit? Or uploading from your Mac?"
==> I use the Apple camera connection kit, so using a direct connection between the digital camera and the iPad. The resolution on the iPad is very good.
I also have noticed, when I plug the iPad 2 to the mac (iOS 6), Aperture starts and proposes to import picts from the iPad whithin my APerture Library. I can see the picts I have previously imported into the iPad using a direct connection between the digital camera and the iPad.
Those picts are shown in RAW format (.CR2). So I guess RAW picts are imported in RAW format in the iPad (during the direct import). And the iPad includes a native RAW viewer in the mobile app "Photos". This app may include some filter or noise reduction capabilities.
"So, have you been importing raw+jpeg pairs or single raw files?"
==> I import single RAW files. On the camera, a Canon 5D mk iii, I have configured mRAW only, disabling the jpeg pair.
What do you mean by "embedded jpeg in the raw" ?Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), Aperture 3.4.1

What do you mean by "embedded jpeg in the raw" ?
A single raw file also contains an embedded jpeg as a thumbnail. When I import single raw files to my iPad (I could only test this with my Lumix today - the Canon 5D is at my office) it will display the raw images only with a reduced resolution - they are not as sharp as when displayed on the mac. It looks like the iPad only were showing the embedded thumbnail and not rendering the raw.

The iPad may show this embedded jpeg in the RAW, but the picts shown in the "Photos" app are nice. Paraparadoxically, they're better compared of what I see in Aperture on the Mac. The resolution is correct. Do you believe the embedded jpeg has a better resolution than 1024 X 768 (iPad 2) ?
And the CR2 picts (RAW format for 5D mk iii) are in the iPad : I can import them into Aperture library when I plug the digital camero to the Mac.
Any idea for having the Aperture presets equivalent to the embedded jpeg pict visible on iPad ?
