Hi does anyone use this item? I would like to know if i can work with files straight from an attached SD card or if i need to upload to the iPad first, also are there any recommendations for the best RAW file app for the iPad?

I used a Chinese version. It can't import raws so I save as jpeg within the camera and upload that way. The camera connect can only import from a dsc folder.

Not sure about a raw viewer app.

I have found e iPad disappointing as a photography tool but superb for showing off portfolios.

Theres at least 2 ipad apps, piRAWna and photoRAW i saw a review on them from a professional photographer who was rating them highly but i cant find the review anymore to see which one is the best.

I've got the proper Apple version and all it does is let you import files from the card to the iPad's internal storage, you can't do very much with them in-situ. The built-in Photos app works with PEF files for me, although it obviously isn't much good for editing.

That said, I've not tried doing any editing on the iPad - I just use it for viewing mainly.

I bought the iPhoto iPad App - and I can't say I've found it as good as I would like for editing.

My solution has been [ and I'm no expert goodness knows ] is still to import to my Aperture library from the camera , edit as necessary ad then sync over to the iPad - and it's always a fiddle .
let the education continue

Yes, Ive not heard any good reviews for the iphoto app and ive checked the piRAWna app and it seems a bit hit and miss, I migh just swap my ipad for a macbook air.
