As a professional photographer or a digital camera lover, you may sometime or always shot photos in the format of RAW. The RAW format keeps all details in your photos while the jpeg format is loss compressed image.
When you import all your RAW images to your iPad with iTunes, iTunes will help you convert the RAW format to jpeg files. so you could not view your original RAW images on your iPad.
To view your RAW images on iPad, you need an Accessory called “Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit”, which is available on Apple online store at here for $29.00
The benefits of iPad Camera Connection Kit:
1. You can import images from your SD card to iPAD directly, no PC and iTunes required. If you shot lots of photos, this is super easy for you to view images on iPad.
2. You can import RAW image to iPad and iPad will show your orignial RAW images instead of compressed JPEG.
the bad thing is: you need to prepare a huge space for RAW images.

The iPad Camera Connection Kit gives you two ways to import photos and videos from a digital camera: using your camera’s USB cable or directly from an SD card. iPad and the Camera Connection Kit support standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.
With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it’s incredibly easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.
The kit includes two connectors, each with a different interface:
- The Camera Connector features a USB interface. Just plug it into the dock connector port on your iPad, then attach your digital camera or iPhone using a USB cable (not included). iPhone 3G is not supported.
- Use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from your camera’s SD card. Connect it to your iPad, then insert your digital camera’s SD card into the slot.
After you make the connection, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organizes them into albums. When you sync iPad to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer’s photo library.
