I’m currently working on the second edition of The iPad for Photographers and would love to get your feedback. What’s missing? What needs more detail? What needs to be jettisoned?
I have my own lists, of course. For example, the next edition will include more detail about working wirelessly, using devices like the CamRanger and CameraMator, and will include the information about iPhoto and Adobe Photoshop Touch that had to appear in an addendum (because the book was literally being printed when Apple announced the third-generation iPad and iPhoto).
Speaking of the second edition, you can pre-order the book now: iPad for Photographers: Master the Newest Tool in your Camera Bag (2nd Edition)
Reply in the comments here, or email me at email@example.com. Thanks in advance!
I would like to see more detailed instruction and/or advice on using your suggestions and examples for those who are not as computer literate as others.
Can you give me an example? It’s a fine line between writing about a specific topic like using the iPad for photographers and explaining how the iPad works in general. (I have a separate book, The iPad Pocket Guide, which does the latter.)
Dare I suggest video workflow as well? I’m loving using my iPad with my GoPro Hero 3. The app is great.
Jeff, a couple of things:
1.) an I/O diagram for the iPad so that we can understand why some connections work and why others aren’t possible.
2.) whether it is possible with new wireless media drives like the Satellite Plus to finally create a combined review/backup scheme for RAW format files that needs only a transmitter on the camera, an iPad, and a hard drive. Otherwise we’re stuck shelling out $400+ for a Hyperdrive UDMA2 or buying scads of SD cards for long trips.
