So, what do you prefer using to transfer your photos from camera to iPad? The Lightning to SD card reader? Or the Lightning to Camera Adapter?

I'm tending to the SD card reader because it (apparently) means I won't need an extra SD-card reader, or cable for camera.

Be aware that the iPad lets you only view thumbnails from the SD card. You can view full size images after transferring them to your camera roll inside photo's

This means that you fill up your iPad memory very quick if you shoot raw

Lightroom for iPad enables the user to 'Import, Edit and sync raw photos from your camera' ... but I don't think you can view the RAW files directly in the Photos app.

I tried it once with a Nikon camera, that worked at the time. I will try it this weekend with Sony raw files from my A77II.

I will also try what happens with the Lightroom app.

I am able to import and view/edit raw files in iOS.

I can select a few photos in the " photos" app and then import them to the camera roll. The other option is to import them all.

When you allowed Lightroom to access the camera roll, you can edit them with Lightroom. The edits are based on the raw image. The edit is a bit slow on my iPad, but I have access to full white balance adjustments. After editing them in Lightroom, they are added to the "Lightroom mobile" photo's which could be automatically downloaded to your Lightroom desktop application.

Hope this makes sense to you.

For me, the SD card kit is not what I expected it to be. It is not possible to view the images on full size just from the sd card without copying them to the iPad. Otherwise, if you want to copy them to your iDevice, this is the way to go.

Not really answering the question though.

I've got a 256 GB iPad and 2 TB of cloud storage to handle raw files. The iPad will be a temporary, rather than permanent storage device.

Thanks, yes, this is what I want to do.

I ask because to see raw file thumbnails on a windows device within file manager requires a Sony plug in. Windows Photo can open view files to view but zooming in doesn't show full detail.

Fwiw, I downloaded an a77ii file (about 24MB) to my iPad. It appeared in the iOS as part of the photos collection. It opened in Snapseed and Adobe easily. (I could also see the raw thumbnails on pcloud from the iPad). I couldn't see any difference between the image in the iOS photo album, and the raw converters.

With my Windows devices (computers running Win7) I can see ARW thumbnails and open them with pretty much any viewer including Windows Photo Viewer. That's made possible with the help of codecs provided by FastPictureViewer.

Windows Photo can open view files to view but zooming in doesn't show full detail.

With my codec setup, I can tell the viewers to open the full-res ARW files or just the embedded low-res JPEGs (which sounds like what you're seeing).

Not sure if that's of help to you.

Correct me if I"m wrong but just plugging in the SD card reader (USB) with card into the ipad doesn't work as there isn't enough power. Also I find that transferring pictures into the ipad almost has to be done blind as waiting for the previews to show up from the camera reader is beyond extremely slow to the point where I just count the number of pictures I want to transfer or see and just select those ones. To wait for the previews to show up is an exercise in patience or futility.

I use the Apple Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader. Previews before I transfer address are not instantaneous, but they're quick enough - definitely no time to make a coffee while I wait.

I find that using the Apple kit, and then using Lr mobile, I can not see the photo's (RAW). I can when I transfer the file by Wifi.

Having said that, I am not a Lr user at all, so I transfer files from my camera to my iPad for a quick e-mail or placing it on social media.

When I transfer a RAW file to my iPad, I can see it in all the apps I use, which are WhatsApp, Ps Express, Instagram, FB and the photo app on the iPad itself.

The only "but" might be that you have to use Sony Play Memories App on your device.
