Can an IPad 2 be hooked up as a monitor for a 60D to help with focusing while shooting video?

I don't think so, the iPad is very limited as a tool.

I have no idea why Apple restrict so many features that cheap alternatives have.

I can shoot stills directly to my iPadII by using the eye-fi card. The eye-fi software is very unstable.

Besides which, I don't believe the 60D can pass Liveview out the HDMI port.

Maybe a little off topic but related I hope. I use the EOS Utility on a netbook I bought cheap off of CList. It does require tether but I get a 10" display screen prior to clicking the shutter.

I believe the Eye-Fi solution is only an after the fact preview but I'm not positive.

I haven't played around a whole lot with the 60D and iPad, but I believe you can only download images from the camera to the device. You can't even simply browse full sized images from
the SD card.

I would be interested to hear otherwise.

Can.

And no, iPad can't function as a monitor. Just get a cheap 150$ monitor.

I am not sure if it will work, but if you jailbreak the IPad and install an app called Mywi (I think) and then use wifi cards on your camera, you'll probably be able to see the pictures in the IPad.

Disclaimer: I read the this procedure somewhere. Don't know if it will work. Heck I don't even have an iPad or a 60D.

The 60D doesn't have live shoot function where you can use an external screen, but i think you can with the HDMI Port.

But what you can do, is use this accessory from Apple, which allows you to insert your SD card, or plug your camera into it with USB. But you will have to turn you camera on USB mode, its a great way just to stop shoots and show clients the photos on a bigger screen on a neat little iPad!

Heres the accesory!

iPad 2 doesn't even allow you to put pictures on it for viewing without a lot of work! I have about 400 shots from my niece's wedding and reception in the Virgin Islands that I'd like to put onto the ipad2 but gave up. Everyone tells me that I can email them to myself but that isn't practical becuase of files size considerations. Crazy, but I can easily put them on my Garmin GPS.

Should be pretty easy if you're using iTunes to sync. Under photos, choose the folders they're in to be synced to your iPad.

With android now, with can control 100% of the dslr on a galaxy tab 10.1 or Galaxy Note .. really comfortable for focus stacking too ..
I really recommend that solution with "DSLR controller" exactly like EOS Utility but with android

All pictures best viewed in FullHD mode, by clicking on pictures ..

Much more comfortable with 5,3" to control stacking

The IPad needs a computer as and interface to the camera.
However, there are several portable monitors for dSLR use. The HDMI output will show whatever is normally on the LCD. Several self powered dSLR monitors have been developed for video dSLR use, and with live view can be used for real time composition and manual focus as well. 5-7" size is pretty popular, and they usually come with a ballhead for mounting in the flash shoe.

veemac, "Under photos, choose the folders they're in to be synced to your iPad." My issue is getting them onto the iPad which is cumbersome at best with 1-2 gig of pictures. With a Samsung Galaxy there is an adapter that will accept a direct plug in of an SDHC card. To me it just seems that Apple is lacking in connectivity options.
