P45 fotos viewing or store on iPad

Postby spassig » Sun Mar 11, 2018 6:03 pm

Hello
I use a digiback P45 and my Hasselbld 503 CW.
Outdoor I will shoot fotos and viewing they on my iPad.
Viewing or store the fotos on iPad.
I need a card Reader and an App.
I think that Capture Pilot isn‘t a solution because the P45 hasn‘t WIFI.
Does someone have a solution for my requisition?

Maybe the solution?
EyeFi-Card and Capture Pilot.

Has someone experience with this combination?

If EyeFi-Card don‘t work.

Can I use a Lightning card reader on IPad?
Can I see or import RAWs or previews on iPad?

I may be wrong but I think Capture Pilot for iOS does not in fact capture or store or import images to the device where you install it, but it allows you to remote access images stored on another device where you're running Capture One.

Capture Pilot alone is not a tethering solution, it's meant to display, "zoom and pan high-res DSLR and medium format RAW, JPEG and TIFF images while you shoot. You can also add star and color ratings, adjust the exposure settings and trigger your camera’s shutter."

But you still need a full version of Capture One running.

It works like this: Camera <-> Computer running Capture One <-> Tablet running Capture Pilot

it's not: Camera <-> Tablet running Capture Pilot.

I may be wrong but I think that's the way it is.

I think You are right. I read this also some hours ago.

I have COP on MBP and iMac, planning both aren't outdoor.

I understand.

I understand.
a) For this solution I need a modern digiback from PhaseOne?
b) This solution don't run with old digiback P45?

If a) and b) YES I need a cardreader?
If YES I don't know in which way I can see RAWs or Previews on iPad with iOS?

I image it would be possible using something like Lightroom CC mobile combined with a CF-Card reader.

However I have no idea whether and/or how well this would work and how much battery life you could expect given the big files you'd be working with and how much space you need on your tablet.

ps.: done some quick research and it's possible that you might need a powered USB-hub to connect a card reader to an iPad - but the posts that were suggesting this were from 2013 - I have no idea how that might have changed.

With Android I remember doing this once or twice with a simple adapter an a simple CF-reader, but knowing Apple they probably don't have the same bus power on their tablets.

Today I have installed Lightroom CC mobile on my iPad.
I send a P45 file from iMac via mail to iPad.
I store the file in the App Foto.
i open the App Foto from Lightroom CC mobile.
I click on P45 file.
I see only a grey rectangle.
That’s not a solution.

3 possibilities:

    A. Lightroom CC mobile can't render PhaseOne files (maybe try to record TIF?)
    B. Your import process was faulty.
    C. The iPad is too weak to actually render the files.

The Apple iPad 9.7 (March 2017) specs are:
Dual-core 1.84 GHz
2 GB RAM

The iPad Pro is somewhat beefy but still only features 4GB RAM and the CPU will reduce its clock speed very fast under serious load - it's only passively cooled.

Now when we look at the system specs for a 2009 highend workstation (something that would handle the P45+ files without a problem) you'd be looking at a well cooled 2-3GHz Quad Core processor with 8-16GB of RAM. That's a huge difference.

You wouldn't expect the same abilities (even when it only comes to rendering preview files from a big RAW) from such a system and if a photo editor like Lightroom CC is able to run on such a limited system, it surely will be very limited in its performance and abilities.
