Okay, for what it is worth, the download speeds using the SD card adapter (USB 3.0) and the iPad Pro (also USB 3.0 compliant and with 4 GB RAM) is certainly not slow, either with the previews or the downloads.

I suspect it would be a different story with my older iPad mini. That has an A8 rather than A10X chip, and nothing close to the RAM of the pro.

On the WX350 it only sends a very small jpeg via wireless, which is a pity because the card reader is broken on mine and I was hoping to use it as a remote camera rather than scrap it. Doh!
A900, A58, 5d, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras . . .

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've ordered the USB3.0 Lightning to SD Card Reader, and my "photography" iPad (iPad Pro 10.5") is also USB 3.0 compliant.

I'm hopeful it won't be that slow

My experience with the a6000 is that you only get a JPG. I believe it's the JPG image preview that comes over if you're shooting in RAW only based on file sizes once I uploaded them to Google Photos. The Lightning to SD card adapter isn't the greatest thing in the world, but it does let you bring in raw files right to the iPad.

That makes sense ... you are probably right.

I think the Play Memories App uses JPG format to transfer files from camera to device. At least, that is the case with the A7. It's not an option to transfer full-size RAW files via the wifi mechanism, as far as I am aware. (Even if the picture is RAW only, the camera expresses it as a smaller JPG for transfer.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

...

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.


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

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


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.
