And now with the iPad Camera Connection Kit (CCK) you would expect that it would be a slam-dunk to create a simple app that would browse photos on the flash card (hopefully supporting CF via a card reader, not just SD or tethered to the camera). Then you could choose a photo, rename, add metadata and upload it, making a sweet little package for editing and transmitting photos in the field. So we managed to get our hands on a few iPads and the CCKs to investigate. Well like your parents probably told you, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t real and you should be suspicious of it. Do your homework. Unfortunately that is likely the case for the iPad and professional photography: not so sweet.
