Tablet for viewing images in the field

Postby mitmaur » Sat Dec 07, 2013 9:01 pm

Hi. I have a Canon T3 and would like to hear your recommendation(s) for the best tablet I can use to view images while out shooting. I can wait to do post later on my desktop when I get home.

As I posted in another thread, I use an iPad Air because it has "Retina" resolution without any color gamut or image retention issues.

If you just want to "view" images on the field, and don't want to carry a lot of gears, an EyeFi card and a portable tablet such as iPad mini 2 would do. iPad mini 2 is more portable than iPad Air, but the iPad Air's bigger screen is a bonus. Since I own both iPads, I would say that colour gamut wouldn't be an issue while shooting on the field. In other words, most people wouldn't notice the minor colour gamut issue on iPad mini 2, unless you have iPad Air and iPad mini 2 side by side.

If you want to tether on the field, a laptop would do a better job.
