REVIEW: IPad (a Photographers Tool)

I purchased the IPad 64GB 3G version and now have had it for about a month.  I must say it is one great powerful tool to have!   I can just imagine future generations will be even better.  I know it does not support flash and does have its drawbacks.  And in my opinion is is not a laptop.  I still bring my laptop for above and beyond work that they IPad cannot handle.  What the IPad is to me is a super fast instant on for (no particular order)…

1) Email  2) Internet  3) Movies 4) TV Shows 5) Podcasts 6) Games 7) Files 8)Music-Music Videos 9) Apps  10) Photographs!!!

I am an Apple fan and really enjoy my IPhone…now the apps never get played on my phone…IPad is the choice!   I think if you can afford it..get the largest available IPad.  Storage space goes fast!  I have a ton of stuff on it and still have 16 GB remaining.  So thinking as a photographer…the photos look amazing on the IPad!  Like HD!!  I have many shots on there.  For an example of usage..I brought my IPad the other day to a Real Estate shoot…I whipped out the IPad and gave a slideshow of my previous Real Estate HDR’s to the sales person…he was impressed!  A picture is worth 1000 words indeed!   A great platform to show your photos!  The IPad is small enough to fit in my photo backpack…nice!

Another big benefit is the available “Camera Connection Kit” from Apple.  For $29.00 you get 2 connectors to your IPad (USB and SD).  As I shoot with Nikon…no problem at all downloading Jpegs or NEF files!  So now you can download your shots on location and then view them in a beautiful format in minutes!   I find myself  downloading my shots on my MAC and then putting them also on my IPad.  I grab the IPad and sit on the coach (or anywhere in the house) and view my shots. A nice mobile photo viewer.

On a glad I didn’t moment..I was thinking of buying an EPSON photo viewers for the same reason a few months ago ($600)….now it is not even necessary!   I can assume that in time as the storage gets larger for the IPad…these photo viewers will be obsolete.   I also enjoy video Podcasts like DTown TV, Photoshop TV, Geek Brief TV…and now they are large and wonderful to view!  I even now have a subscription to “Digital Photographer UK” magazine on my IPad and can read the current or back issues any time!  I’d say if you are a photographer and have some extra cash…the IPad is a must!!  An unreal tool that has already changed life as I know it.  Technology is amazing!

As for some negative comments, yes, the IPad is not equal to a laptop yet (as I stated above), but will be in my opinion in about 2 years.  I am not a big fan of the very reflective screen.  It also is a fingerprint magnet!  So I tried a film cover and that helped. I was  still not happy about the reflective screen with the std film cover.  I then found another film that reduces glare…Screen Guardz.  Works awesome, but of course reduces brightness/quality just a tad.  But I will accept that in order to have less glare.

The IPad is revolutionary.  If you own one, I am certain you are extremely happy!!!  Kudos Apple!  Keep making our lives easier!!
