    Hi folks,

    Just received a new iPad last night and ideally want to start using it to help with image processing, is there any software that will allow me to work on Olympus RAW files on the iPad?

    I've downloaded Snapseed but it seems to just show jpegs.....

    On a recent trip to London I used the iPad camera connection kit and the app "Photo Toaster" to process ORF files direct from the SD card & upload them to Flickr.

    I was amazed that it handled the raw files, and that it wasn't astoundingly slow to use... this was an iPad 1, btw.

    Definitely worth checking out.

    I've been using PIRAWHNA for over a year now to do quick raw processing on my iPad. Works very well for working on the fly.

    What do you use to download images to the iPad?

    Thanks folks will take a look.
    I purchased an iPad camera connection kit from Amazon, not the Apple but but about £6 so a lot cheaper and works fine!

    Might give one of these Eye Fi cards a try though

    I only shoot RAW, but the iPad is able to open those (probably just the embedded preview) in the standard Photos app.

    Can't help you with a real RAW processor on the iPad.

    I use the iPad Camera Connection Kit for the SD card.

    iPhoto for iOS does RAW processing but very limited compared to Aperture or Lightroom.

    I'd say it's comparable to the iPhoto for OS X. Which is alright in terms of cropping, exposure adjustments, adding a filter, etc. But forget about lens corrections, etc.

    Given the limitations of the (very convenient) platform, I've found Snapseed the best of the apps for in-the-field raw processing.

    I'm considering PhotoSmith because of its integration with Lightroom.
