Does anyone have a solution to import RAW files from a CF card direct into LR on an IPad Pro ?
Seems so far Still a computer as “in between” is needed.
If the IPad does have an USB prot you can try to connect a card reader. If there's no USB port you have no chance.
Have you tried the Apple Lightning to USB cable?
IOW, you leave the card in the camera and connect from camera USB to iPad via the iPad's Lightning port.
It's hit-and-miss (more miss) using 3rd party devices (especially with Lightning) or trying to get CF readers to work with these devices.
PS Any reason for using CF cards? SD cards are much easier to use.
Thanx for some answers.
Yes indeed, it’s a try and error story.
The Ipad though has the possibility to download with a SD to lightning cable. So why not a CF to lightning cable ?
The camera (Nikon newest D5) has 2 CF slots and while travelling it would be quite nice if photos could be downloaded without the necessity of carrying a laptop too.
Still look forward for for any solution.
Out of curiosity:
The D5 comes in two options: dual CF or dual XQD slots. Any reason for choosing dual CF? I would go for dual XQD for speed and future proofing alone.
According to online forums, the CF slot can be swapped out for an XQD for $350.
Great camera though!!
"So why not a CF to lightning cable ?"
I've never seen accessory makers offer many accessories for CF. Possibly because it's older tech with a limited future (based on my online reading). A CF-Lightning cable doesn't strike me as something Apple would embrace - very clunky.
Share your view.
At the time ( introduction over a year ago) XQD wasn't available and didn't wanna switch to XQD.
Now with lots of new technology just wanna look for a possibility not to walk around with too many supporting gear.
Seems iOS support is more concentrated on mass usage.
Just trying out how to get around it.
There was an adaptor from iphone5mod but can't be found anymore, not even sure if hasn't company still exists.
I think I read that someone suggested a Lightning to USB 3 connected to a USB 3 to CF Reader.
Tried it like that with 2 card readers but the IPad reports it doesn’t support the connected items.
