It sounds like what you want is an Eye-Fi card. This will wirelessly transmit the photos you take as you walk round back to your PC. If you go for this option though you will need to use one of Canon's xxxxD or xxxD series cameras as it's SD Card only at the moment - no Compact Flash card option... (Thus, 7D / 5D series / 50D and before / 1D series can't ...

I have an iPad and I've used it some for photography while traveling, and here's some things I've come up against. With the iPad 2, resolution was limited to 1024×768. The new model's 2048×1536 is much, much better, but the screen is still quite small. Lovely for finger-painting, hard to get precise control for fine work. Can't color calibrate at an OS ...

What kind of retouching are you doing ? only using the different buttons/sliders in Photoshop (or equivalent) or are you "drawing" stuff like masks, making hand-drawn selection, or actual painting ? A tablet is a tool that you need to learn to use; and learning is not something that is instantaneous; take your time. A tablet is a great tool when someone is ...

There are a number of software programs that will handle tethered shooting: Lightroom 4, Phase One software's Capture One (which will also wireless transmit images to an iPad using Capture Pilot. These are full blown editing suites however. If you just want simple transfer, what about an Eye-Fi card? They have a direct mode which will send images ...

I agree with Stan, but you may also want to consider the idea of a tablet PC. I have one, an Asus, with the touch screen and pressure-sensative stylus, that runs full Windows 7 with a dual-core CPU. This lets me have a full Photoshop install and the ability to use the stylus directly on the image and I find this far more intuitive than the regular tablet (I ...

Small shifts in perspective can have small but important impacts on the final image (background tree "growing" out of someone's head vs beside them, cut off at the knees vs mid-shin, etc), which is an argument for composing on the device you will shoot with. Also the NEX-5R is an interchangeable lens camera, so the angle of view will differ from the iPad for ...

Two words... Pressure Sensitivity. A digitizer tablet allows you to control parameters of brushes based on how hard you press down. This is a huge advantage that a mouse can't replicate in terms of control over your work. Note that this also takes some configuration to figure out how best to maximize and may involve having to refine your touch up ...

I got a Kata KT D-3N1-20 earlier this year, and I love it. Tried to find a good backpack with side opening for easy access and landed on the Kata. They have different sizes with and without a pocket for laptop/tablet. Based on the bag you have now you might want to look at the Kata 3N1-22 or maybe even the 3N1-33 (larger). I also have an old Lowepro ...

I've been loving my ThinkTank Photo Retrospective 10. One of the things it does well is fit my iPad. The iPad will fit easily in the front pocket, snugly in the back outside pocket, and tightly in the inside back pocket; none of which are in the way to get the camera in/out. There are several sizes; the 7 or 5 might be more appropriate for a small kit and 7" ...

Loewepro makes a messenger bag that might work for you: Loewepro Compuday150 I own it and like it a lot. There is also a similar backpack version.

I looked into this with the iPad and found it very impractical for any workflow to use RAW. The transfer rate is horribly slow and it sucks down battery life at a nasty rate. Your best bet would be to shoot RAW/JPEG and import only JPEG to significantly cut down on transfer time and significantly open up your options to which app you would use. If you ...

The most notable difference at the moment will be: The computational power difference between a PC & a tablet - tablets give you the computation power of a PC that is 6-8 years older, so even if you get the workflow on par with the PC, the speed will definitely be a lot slower. If you are working with the RAW format, then just exporting them after ...

In the classified series lowepro has this monster. I have it, I like it for a few reasons: 1) It carries quite a lot of gear. 2) The wallet part is nice, zippers closed, and is unobstructing/unobstructed by your gear. 3) It's fairly discreet(for such a huge bag). 4) The quality is very high(as with all the bags in this series). 5) It's not a ...

This is pretty cool if you happen to have a 7D.

The magic word is "tethered." Others have named some software that will do it, but anything that lets you shoot tethered will do it.

Not really, because an app can't decide for you which part of the scene you want to expose and focus in a certain way. Cameras in Auto mode attempt, with varying degrees of success, to guess what part of the scene to which the photographer wants to draw the attention of the viewer. If a machine could read our minds and expose/focus an image the way we want ...

Looking only at digital cameras, some of them may only browse within the directories they have created (and understand), or they may allow the user to freely choose which directory to browse. I see three possible scenarios here: Camera does not recognize the "foreign" directories Con: You wouldn't be able to browse through all the photos Camera picks up ...

I think there is a bit of a misunderstanding here. A tablet doesn't really give you all that much of an idea of the actual image you will get compared to a good viewfinder in a DSLR. The resolution of a tablet screen is only going to be around 2 megapixels, if that. A viewfinder up to your eye will actually let you see far more detail. That said, low ...

Bit silly to answer my own question but I found an excellent answer, explanation and solution at http://viziblr.com/news/2011/8/13/fix-my-pen-makes-your-wacom-tablet-just-work-on-windows-7.html It all seems to be a problem of windows thinking that you want to start writing with an electronic pen. There are some registry settings that can be set to solve the ...

I think eyefi will transfer photos whenever there's a connection available, whereas shooting tethered (Wifi/wired/6dwifi) will only transfer photos while there is a connection avail. If you want to shoot tethered (cable/wifi) the EOS utility has an option to open an application with the image given to it, via command line I presume. This could be an option. ...

Breeze Systems has some products (DSLR Remote Pro, NKRemote) that might be what you are looking for: http://www.breezesys.com/products.htm

I personally like the following two magazines: Popular Photography -Very nice layout, especially on the iPad -very good content Light it Magazine: -The layout is good, but it's not perfectly fit to the iPad. The Content on the other Hand is just great, especially if you are into lighting your images with flash.

I have a tablet, but generally only use it for very specific dodging/burning. Even then, I use it in combination with my trackball. For changing curves and changing the sliders in Adobe Camera Raw, it's my trackball all the way.
