iPad For Photographers
Tuesday, April 13, 2010
Apple’s iPad has a lot to offer photographers—it may be the ultimate photo accessory. First, you’ll be able to connect your digital camera to the iPad and download photos, giving you the peace of mind of an instant backup, plus the ability to review images on a much larger screen than the camera’s LCD. You’ll also be able to e-mail photos or upload them to online services right away. That’s going to be excellent, especially when traveling.

And while that design remains dominant among interchangeable-lens models, a newer design, which eliminates the mirror box in favor of a completely electronic viewing system is gaining ground.
