    I don’t have an iPad at the moment, but I often carry my Kindle around, which I love for reading photography blogs/books.
    Eventually, it’d be great to be able tether my camera to a tablet for quick feedback/inspection. Otherwise, they are great for displaying photos to friends/family, and keeping in touch while travelling!

  • Rakesh Krishnotula says:

    Well currently tablet have not evolved enough to provide independent solutions for photographers.
    You can buy plugins and other attachment for tablet to review images. But they all are workarounds, there is no inbuilt features or solution as if now to be an essential tool for photographers.
    I rather prefer to carry a netbook or Mac airbook with my gear.
    it can be even used to copy the photo or videos to the internal storage of netbook and reuse the memory card if needed.
    Its like a computer( a substitute )can i can do pretty much everything review or process RAW files, edit Images, inbuilt USB and SD slot, ETC…

    i don’t have an iPad yet but would love to have this very discreet backpack!I use to carry my DSLR almost everywhere i go and the Photo Traveler 150 seems ideal for me: it’s neat, it’s handy, and it doesnt attract attention. Until i get my first iPAd it would be my perfect everyday partner!!!And when i get it even more…

    I have a camera bag dedicated to just camera equipment. But ever too often, I will be walking around downtown, exploring new cities, or being abroad, and find myself sitting down in local coffee shops wishing I had a bag that could hold my tablet. To be able to sit, have some coffee, and upload some photos of my day to Facebook, email, or anywhere else would just be a dream. This bag is also small enough to not be a huge, clunky, camera bag that would get in the way. It’s perfect.

  • Peter Wetzig says:

    With Eye-Fi X2 card and ShutterStitch on my ipad I can backup wirelessly in the field while shooting. Plus I can also review images taken on my iPad to get a more indepth view of the images before leaving the location.

    As our passion is landscape and nature photography, which often requires extended travel to photographic locations. Wirelessly connecting my DSLR and iPad in he field can mean the difference in success of a photo shoot. Great Lowepro gear (such as the Photo Traveler 150) to transport and protect both DSLR including lenses and accessories and my iPad is a critical element in a success photo shoot for us.

  • Greg L. says:

    A tablet allows a quick way of photo proofing. I find sometimes pictures that look fine are slightly out of focus when I upload them on my computer.

  • Chandramohan Krishnamurthy says:

    Sitting in my garden, I can capture the beauty of nature using my camera and edit the picture using iPhoto on my new iPad which has retina display and share the beauty with my family living 1000s of miles away, instantly.
    Imagine a walk in the park during sunset and how better to spend an evening than to capture the beauty of setting sun and instantly view the same on my iPad in HD and upload the same onto my online collection of photos then and there for all those missing the beautiful sunset to see and enjoy the sunset from the comfort of their home as it happens.
    Not to mention the stunning pictures of my little girl trying to walk which just looks more beautiful on my iPad’s retina display which can be instantly sent to her grand parents to cherish. Last but not least, the best of pictures will end up as slideshow on my iPad all day in my office & home for me to keep staring at and appreciate how beautiful life is especially with the help of 2 gadgets of mine – my DSLR and my iPad and ofcourse a wonderful means to carry both together:-)

    With both my tablet and camera together I can keep the blog easily updated with the last minute photos..

  • EdMar says:

    While the intervalometer is running I can check my email or just kill some time playing with my tablet…

  • Aaron Joseph David says:

    I use my fabulous tablet (yes, it’s fab) to view and upload the mind-blowing photos (literally they’re mind blowing, 3 people have died viewing my photos) that i took with my legendary camera of awesomeness… that’s why i need a sick (and by sick, i mean kick-ass) camera bag.

  • James says:

    I work in real estate. I use my camera to rake photos of properties that I am selling and visually display them on my iPad to show to my clients in stills and slideshow format.

  • Summer Liew says:

    Using tablet and camera together will be very convenience for sharing photo with my buddies, such like upload to Facebook, Twitter or sending them email to share the beautiful moment with them. Furthermore, blogging is important for me, a picture worth a thousand word, using DSLR camera to capture a quality picture and update my blog immediately, definitely can represent my feeling in that moment.
