i've heard that you can upload raw files to the ipad with the camera connection kit.
this would be a handy back up when travelling, but the 64gb may still be too small with music videos etc to store photos.

I like it for reading. Magazines (Zinio), Books (iBooks, Kindle), Web, RSS Feeds (River of News), etc.

Shoot day use for me is a big one. I use mine for wireless transfer/proofing during shoots (in studio or on location). Also great for keeping mood boards, google map shooting local routes, shot lists. All those things that used to be a big obnoxious binder full of all that stuff. Much easier and quicker to find what you are looking for. Also means don't have to lug around a heavy laptop. Just leave that in the car or at work now.

I use mine for reviewing pics on events (w/the camera connector). Much easier to carry around than a laptop as it fits nicely into the front pocket of a Think Tank R20 :)

Just bought my wife one for Christmas for the same reason... oops did I say that out loud? hope she doesn't read this. She wanted it as a book reader.

Just thought I would post this here: after living with my iPad for 4 months, I posted a review aimed at photographers on my blog. There are a couple of key apps that have just been released/updated that make the tablet even more useful than before: new digital portfolios like PadPort, and PDF Expert which finally allows you to fill out PDF forms directly on the iPad. And by that I don't mean just signing or typing on top of PDFs, but actually recognizing native form fields.

Also, Jadam: how do you go about your wireless transfer of photos in the field to the iPad?

Recently picked up a 32 gig one, amazing device!
I use it mainly for watching movies as I travel a lot,
but also as others made mention, photo album works very well
Music, books, with WiFi surfing the net, emails and such
Also some games but not into that much, here's a free clock app
that I sometimes let run at my desk;

also you probably can't guess what movie this is from;

I use a nice anti glare screen on there, cuts way down on fingerprints but mainly
used to cut out the glare/reflections, without losing much detail either, made by
a company called Power Support, I've read to just go to them and not use amazon as
they sometimes get things mixed up and send the wrong one, so I went direct and
got it fairly quickly and works like a champ, have a similar one on my iPod Touch
now for over a year, really good stuff.

Umm..He's Sick, My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with a girl who saw Ferris pass-out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious……

Used mine with the camera connection kit over Christmas to download pictures that my sisters took. Easier than toting around a laptop and a card reader.

Also nice to preview pictures and make sure I got the shot. Hate to come home, load the photos on the computer and then realize that I could've gotten a better shot if I had only done this or that differently.

When I got my 32gb Wi-Fi/3G version, I had no idea I would use it so much. I really don't use my desktop, laptop and netbook quite so much anymore. Of course I use the desktop and laptop for tasks that require them. I will probably sell the netbook. It is just so easy to grab it and use it. Great screen and battery life. The 9.7 inch screen just seems the perfect size for me. I talked to a couple of friends who have one and they say pretty much the same thing.

I've been debating on whether or not to buy one...If there's ever a way to use it as field monitor I would buy one in an instant.

I appreciate all the feedback from this thread. I have read something about troubles with the camera connection kit and would like to know more about any problems with it if you have. I don't know anybody that has one so I have to rely on your guys.

Steve, thanks for the link to your blog. That was a great writeup.

Jeff

Reading this thread has convinced me to get the new ipad, especially Steve's blog in post 21.
Thanks
Geoff
