Apple iPad Shows Photos, Connects to Cameras, Shares Scanned Pictures

The Apple iPad is an ideal platform for sharing your photos, slides and negatives scanned by

Via PMA Newsline:

The Apple iPad may lack a camera, but it could be an ideal way to see and share photos. We’ve read reports of professional photographers buying the small computers for use as “brag books.”

Apple seemed to go out of its way to make photo viewing difficult, however, unless those images are already on the web or other Wi-Fi connected storage: the iPad itself has no slot for a camera storage card, or even a USB port.

Apple is selling an set of adapters for those two functions, SD card reader and USB: the iPad Camera Connection Kit is $29 for two adapters that plug into the standard ‘iPod”-style docking port.

When connected, the iPad launches its Photos app, allowing selected pictures to be imported. Also, when the iPad is synced to a PC or Mac, the photos on the iPad are added to the computer’s photo library.

“With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it’s incredibly easy to download photos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends,” says Apple says.
