I'll have to try it out.
Exactly. Transfering 20-30mb raw files to ipad or computer would take forever.
Took about one minute in direct mode and maybe 3-4 minutes in wifi mode. Not what I was looking for.
For what I want, the quality of the file and its editing properties doesnt matter. So basic JPG was fine.
I would edit files on Ipad tho, just because using sliders with fingers shouldnt be as accurate as a mouse; but I would have to try. For now, I only use it as a secondary and wider LCD display for previews.
