14 Sep A Guide to iPad Pro as your Mobile Platform for Fujifilm X-T2 – and what Adobe Creative Cloud offers on top

Your Fujifilm X-T2 is a powerfull computer as well as a camera, it is able to do post processing of your pictures, make print orders and print pictures. But sometimes you need additional capabilities on the go or when you travel. In this post, I walk through the various options for importing jpeg and raw-files to the Apple iPad Pro. These options are available to other iOS devices with Lightning connection as well (like iPhone 6, 6S and 7). I make a speed comparison of the options and I will briefly describe the Adobe Creative Cloud offering, that enables a seamless integration of Lightroom and Photoshop on your tablet with your pc / mac at home.
Conclusions from the benchmark-tests:
JPEG-shooters can safely use the Fujifilm Remote App for iOS, when they want to import a few jpegs – provided they set the camera export options correctly. Transferring full resolution jpg-files over the WIFI-connection is slow, but the tipping point is about four pictures for the other options, due to the time spend on setting up the cabling, connection and initial browsing. For postings to social media with low resolution images (max 3Mb), the tipping point is ten to fifteen images.
A direct USB3-cabling to the X-T2 is superior to any other setups, but requires the iPad Pro power supply (charger) in order to work for the iPad Pro.
The Apple ‘Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader’-gadget gets my recommendation. Despite some strange behavior for compressed RAW-files, the size and ease of use compensate for a slightly slower speed than the direct USB3-cabling to the X-T2.
