Day 223 Success!

Wow! I posted my dilemma at Apple’s support community for iPad and someone who uses a Nikon D5100 and shoots RAW + JPEG thought the problem was that I shoot RAW; I changed the setting from RAW to RAW + JPEG, took a photo of the closest thing (the iPad Camera Connection Kit box) and uploaded it to the iPad; that was the problem. The photo uploaded correctly to the iPad. If I just shot JPEG, I would have had no problem but I want to shoot RAW so I’m going to have to modify my settings for Italy and, of course, get some extra memory cards because that setting uses twice as much memory. Oy Vey!!

Here is the photo of the oak grove that I uploaded to my iPad. I can’t change the photo on the iPad because it was photographed using RAW but I also uploaded it to my computer. It’s nothing great but it’s my photo of the day:

Focal Length 35mm
ISO 100
f/8

Day 223-First iPad Post?

I have considered putting In Focus Daily on hiatus while I travel to Italy in September. Today I am giving my iPad another shot to see if I can successfully post to my blog just using the iPad (and my camera, of course). For some reason I couldn’t make it work right in my trials before visiting the Pacific Northwest in June so I gave up and took my laptop instead of the iPad. Let’s see if I can do this!

Today’s photo is a grove of valley oak trees on Fiddyment Road in Roseville near my house. I took about a twenty shots and have successfully downloaded a select few to my iPad. I was able to view the photos on the iPad and select one for my blog.

I seem to have figured out how to write my post. Now let’s see if I can upload the photo to the post.

Well I obviously don’t have it figured out yet. I can see the photos on my iPad in large, clear format. It uploads to WordPress as a Thumbnail and when enlarged it is pixilated. Aarrgghhh!!!! I thought I had it figured out. I’m not giving up yet.

Well it seems to be the camera import. I took the wine picture on my iPad. Does this mean I have to run all over Italy with my iPad instead of my Nikon?
