Just a small update with my wife traveling. Okay Nancy is NOT a techno geek or gear slut like her husband. What i find interesting is a person like her and going through the Ipad as she travels . This morning she left Philly on a train back to NY. She said she read most of the time with her Ipad and played a little music. Too short a trip to start her movie, now at night in the hotel she has been doing the wifi stuff like internet , mail and such. She has a Iphone so she does get her mail all the time but she said she rather respond when she has the wifi on the Ipad since it is easier to type and such. For a non geeky person she maybe in this transition period of actually having fun and doing the geeky things at the same time. Her bag is certainly lighter from carrying a hard bound book and not carrying a laptop. heck even as shooters we could maybe even get away with Ipad and a storage device to download our CF and SD cards too and use as backup until you get home.
For instance i am shooting a wedding in Dallas this weekend and maybe the only reason to bring my laptop is to back my files up too. I won't be processing these on the road anyway. Heck since I have a 64 gb unit, I wonder.
maybe my question is this how do we download a CF card to the Ipad. In my case shooting CF cards rather have the USB connector and bring a reader but my question is this how do you download, is there a app to do that or do you import into iphoto and how do you get them off the Ipad to computer.
Well I can't try it this time since she has the Ipad but in the future how can we do this
