and also what are your favourite photography related apps on it?? and maybe even a few non-related apps??

I'd be curious to see what others do with theirs. Me, I mainly use it for email, internet, etc...I do have some apps linked to my flickr account, but that's about it

You can also use an Eye-Fi X2 and and the iPad App, and have images wirelessly sent to your iPad as you shoot them for instant review on a larger screen... great for studio work when you have the client in, you can sit them on a couch with an iPad, rather than huddled around your laptop

What about for portfolio? Seems like a handy way to have one's portfolio ready to show at a moments notice.


Best, Bruce

I've had an iPad for 2 months and still trying to figure out how it will fit into my photography. I downloaded a Depth of Feld calculator and have looked over several of the portfolio apps but haven't found one I'd buy yet. For now it's mainly an easier to user web browser, magazne and boo reader, and email device. I'll eventually pop for one of the portfolio apps bout that may be about as far as it goes.

I use my iPad for web browsing, email, and Words with Friends. Can also view my Smugmug site. No use that I see for for photo editing. I like the DoF calculator, some lens review/info apps and ebooks.

I use mine essentially for showing my portfolio and if I am working on a static setup I might use it to control the camera though I think this is better suited to a laptop where you can store as much as you need to. It is a nice tool to have and it is great for making notes on, doing emails and some light number crunching. There was a huge thread when the first iPad was released but couldn't find it. There were alot of suggestions in that thread if memory serves me correctly. I can't see doing any real editing on this thing unless you are doing it just for fun.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I use my Ipad all the time.
heres a few of the apps i use on my Ipad 1

Nik Snapseed - a very simple, easy to use image editor - great for "playing" with images

Filterstorm Pro - a very very good image editor, allows you to rapidly sort images, add captions, crop, resize, basic PP and then FTP the images out - so its great for Photojournalists, and people who need a way to caption images, then FTP them.

Sunseeker - an app that shows you where the sun will be - i use it for picking where im going to shoot during Car Rallys, plug the date in, line the paper stage maps up right, and you can see where the sun will be at whatever time

Google Maps - for finding where im going

Foliobook - a portfolio app - not too bad, sometimes a bit laggy, but the images look good.

Strobox - Lighting diagram creator

Ibooks - got all my Camera manuals loaded into it, along with equipment that work owns, that i may have to use occasionally

Adobe Ideas - a drawing/notetaking app - also allows you to import photos and draw over the top of them, handy for showing someone what PP to do (i use it all the time with my wife, she emails me a pic, i scribble on it, then send it back)

Dropbox - a Cloud storage system, i can upload stuff to it, and access it from any computer with an internet connection, i also have a linked folder that my wife can see, which allows us to share files instantly.

One of the guys at work is using Shuttersnitch with an Eyefi card.
basically he shoots with a 1DSmk3 - Raw to the CF card and small Jpeg to the Eyefi SD card - which sends the image via wifi to the ipad and Shuttersnitch, and allows him to keep shooting, while the stylist sits down looking at the ipad rather than over his shoulder at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps


I also love FruitNinja HD, FlightCtrlHD, Angry Birds and NOVA2 to keep me occupied.
there is a few of us at work with Ipads, Iphones and Ipod touches who play Nova as a multiplayer game via wifi or bluetooth

Thanks!

I bought it and it appears to be a helpful tool.

I've used it on location shoots to upload photos and make sure the client sees some pre-processed photos that they like. Sometimes photos that look decent on the LCD screen, even magnified, don't look great on a bigger screen. Helps especially with group shots to make sure focus looks good..everyone's looking at the camera without funny expressions on their faces, etc...
