Just got Apple's Camera Connection Kit. Unfortunately, it does not work with OnOne Software's DSLR Camera Remote and direct tether using USB cable... yes this was a hope and a prayer.

Am wondering if Canon's wifi transmitter (expensive) will work to send files to iPad over its network?

However, CCK does import CR2 RAW files from my 5D to be viewed, magnified, rotated, emailed, posted to MobileMe, assigned to contact, used as wallpaper or copied, on the iPad.

Would be nice if the "preview" thumbnail could be viewed and magnified without importing to the iPad, unfortunately it does not, have to import to view, zoom and share.

I tried to email a file, it crashed the iPad first time, 22 MB file. Tried again after waiting a while for image to appear in email window, never came up after 5 minutes. Tried to send again, took 20 seconds to compete, worked this time. Full file came in, CR2. Filename was photo.cr2, the naming convention could be problematic. Delivered full res file, 5616x1365.

Post to MobileMe gave a process bar, took about 75 seconds for same file, then gave an error, "Could not publish to MobileMe", likely Mobile Me galleries do not support CR2?

Copy image and then paste into email doc on iPad was successful. Sent fine, received fine, though copy and paste into email delivers a reduced file size, 2045x1365. Could be handy.

Nice to see support for RAW formats on iPad. 5D functions are totally disabled when connected to CCK. No live view when pushing video button.

Import of movies (.mov) was not successful from my 5d M2, shows a placeholder icon that says movie, but did not import the file. These are HD 1920x1080 clips about 10-20 second each, varying from 75-150 MB each.

iPad color seems to err a tad to the green in side by side with with calibrated monitor, overall though was a decent match to my 23" Apple Cinema display.
