Hi,

Could someone with a 6D and an IPAD tell me what kind of resolution they get when tethering to the IPAD. Is the image seen on the 10 inch ipad display as sharp as when seeing it on the 3 inch 6d sreen. And what about the lag, if there is any ?

This is one of the main reason I would buy a 6D so, I'm very interested in your findings.

Thank you

There's almost no lag, it's very good. The only downside is that the iOS app is built for iPhone, so you have to magnify it in iPad to get full screen. This causes a loss of resolution, but it's still better than LCD. The LCD is excellent, but iPad is better :)

I am hoping and anticipating that the EOS Remote app will be updated next year to include native iPad and retina display support.

I sold my iPad to assist my purchase of the 6D. SCREW IT! lol

*Note, I do have an iPhone 5 so I am enjoying the app.

Haha, I could never sell my iPad :) I use it WAY too much!

I hope there are plans for a native iPad version.

I'd be very surprised if there aren't - I think they released a barebones version in order to get it to market. All apps get updates, bug fixes, etc. It has to be in the works.

Thank you very much for your response. It is much appreciated. It is a shame that it's only optimized for phone right now. I hope also that they will make it better for tablet. I think I'll wait till I see improvement on this front.

Also, when you review the pictures from the tablet to your 6D, since again you have to enlarge the scree 2X, is the quality ok ?

Does anyone would be willing to make a little video to show this or can direct me to one that someone has made. I did not find one specifically with 6D and Ipad.

Thanks again for the help

I'm willing to make the video on it ... Only not sure when I can get to that. The image review on iPad is sufficient even with the magnification required to 2x since its a native iPhone app only at this time. You can zoom in to the photo BEFORE you take it, and ensure focus is accurate just as with live view.

It would be ideal to have a native iPad app... But in my use of the remote feature over the past week since I've had my 6D, it hasn't hindered me to believing a shot was in focus due to resolution on my iPad only to find out later on a laptop that it was in fact soft.

And to top that all off, I've been using this iPad WiFi feature with my TS-E 17 f/4L which is a manual focus only lens. Check the "6D owners unite,.." thread and you'll see my images that I've posted. They're also on my Flickr, and I've tried to be as descriptive as I can with regard to which shots were taken using the remote feature, and of course you can check the EXIF data to see which lens I may have been using for a particular shot.
