%As some of you may know apple is releasing it's new IPad 2 on 25th may in the Uk and I feel it is time for me to finally get one and will be purchasing either the 16/32gb wi-fi version. However whilst looking through the many IPad accessories I came across this:

http://store.apple.com/uk/product/MC531

This then gave me an idea! Instead of carrying round a heavy laptop all day, why not just plug my camera into the IPad and use that as my way of checking my photos are all good on location. I am not 100% sure it will work but if it does it's an added bonus. Does anyone know if it would?
! :D

It will work, but you need an app called Shuttersnitch I think. Even with the release of the Ipad 2, the Ipad 1 is still more expensive than a 10" netbook that has higher specs, more storage and more ports.

@Timmy I realise it's more than a normal netbook but there is something about the IPad that makes me want to get one. I already have a powerful 15inch laptop and wanted something very portable and very fun. I am mainly getting the IPad for its media capabilities and the photography bit is an added bonus. Thanks for the advice about the app I will check it out now!

Ahh I don't think I can wait 2 weeks for it to come out :D

If you have an Eye-Fi card and an iPad, you need ShutterSnitch. The $8 iPhone and iPad application lets you beam photos as you shoot them direct to the iPad where they are displayed on the large 10-inch screen.

@ jennie I don't have an Eye-Fi card and they are quite expensive. I think I will buy the apple camera kit the person I spoke to in the shop said it would work. But will take my camera along with me when I buy the IPad 2 in a couple of weeks.

Went into apple today to have to ask some questions. I ended up playing on the old IPad for 30mins then having a 1hour conversation with one of the apple salesmen who is also into photography. He says he uses the IPad with camera conection kit aswell and that it downloads the images instantly and it is compatible with both jpeg and RAW! I am going back there next weekend to preorder the new IPad to ensure I have it in time for my next photography photo shoot the week after.
