The iPad Camera Connection Kit

July 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

So you've been out shooting with the family or friends all day, or perhaps on a vacation away from your desktop computer, and you want to get a peek at the shots you've taken.  Are you frustrated with the viewing limitations of that little screen on the back of your camera?

Take your iPad along! It's a great solution when coupled with the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit.  The kit includes two connectors (shown below); the one on the left for connecting a USB camera (or iPhone), the one on the right for connecting an SD Card containing your photos or video.

Just select the connector you want (I use the USB connector), turn on the iPad, plug the connector into the the iPad's dock connector port and connect the camera using your USB-to-camera cable.  Your photos display on the iPad.  You select the photos to import and, "Voila!", there they are in the iPad's Camera Roll.  From Camera Roll, I move them to a new folder that I name for the subject.

Now your beautiful photos are ready for all to easily see on the iPad.  I used this technique on my shoot of the Lakeway, TX Fourth of July Parade.  I shot all the parade entries and quickly imported them to my iPad.  The judges reviewed my shots immediately after the parade as they made their decisions for the "Best of" category awards for this year's entries.

I plan to use the iPad Camera Connection Kit extensively on my upcoming cruise vacation on the Danube River.  Subscribe to this blog for updates!
