View Your HDSLR Footage on iPad directly from CF card
It’s a good week for the iPad and an interesting one for filmmakers at any level.
Here is what Miha says you need:
– Jailbroken iPad (i.e. to unlock your iPad to allow third-party application to be installed)
– iFile app from Cydia
– CF (or SD if you have that type) Card reader for iPad – mine is from M.I.C. gadget store, of course you can use a Camera Connection Kit for SD cards also.
All formats recorded with DSLR can be previewed directly from your card. When you connect your card to your iPad, you need to close Photos App first, because it won’t let you play your video files. Then launch iFile and navigate to Flash Drive 1 (/var/mnt/mount1/DCIM/your folder/your file. Click it and play it with the default video player.
What do you think about this new way of using the iPad?
