I just used an ipad on a shoot and it changed how I want to tether in the future.

So on shoots I always tether to my laptop, 17 inch screen. It has its pros and cons of course. Pros I can do edits , cons the camera gets disconnected randomly, cables and its heavy.

But my laptop was off being repaired so I had to use my ipad. I loved it. It was light, portable and the pics are great. I cant edit on it because I am using the Canon pic transfer software.

But the thing is I need a new ipad, this one is a few years old and if this is the tethering method I will use in future then I would like a newer faster tablet. So with that being said, does anyone else use this method to tether and are there any tablets anyone recommends?

I use iPad pro 9.7 and 12.9 inch models via Camranger. My only con is the lag time if I use full size jpegs to preview. Forget the full size Raws.

Otherwise I love it and the clients appreciate it too.

I have been tethering to my Mac desktop via Tether Tools 32' cables into Lightroom, displayed on a large LED screen when I shoot models and portraits lately. It's good to be able to show them results on the fly with my basic develop presets applied.

How fast are the transfers?

Transfer is quick. Wireless not much slower. What camera do you use?

I started using the Camranger just a few months ago and love it. No more worrying about tripping over a tether cable, a huge LCD (iPad Pro) to review photos on, and clients love being able to see the pics after shooting.

I did a quick writeup of it on my website here (https://www.chrisconst​antinephoto.com/this-thing-is-awesome (external link)) if you're interested. It's been out since 2012 or 2013, but it's still great technology that's really helped the workflow.
