East Dallas News editor Bruce Felps asked me to take a few photos at this morning's Leukemia Cup Regatta, so I did. The regatta this wee...
Excellent overview of the iPad and photography over at dpreview.com: http://forums.dpreview.com/reviews/appleipad2/ Most of what the authors...
Most of what the authors say could apply to the iPad 1 as well as 2.
At the moment the iPad seems most useful as convenient way of showing photos to clients (or friends or family). My big iMac's display is even better, but obviously I can't lug my iMac out to a coffee shop for a meeting with a client, while an iPad is even more portable than a laptop computer.
I have not heard anything official about this but it seems likely that Apple will eventually (sooner rather than later?) release Aperture for the iPad. And that may be a game changer. I have Aperture 3 on my iMac but I use Lightroom 3 for 99% of my work because, well, the user interface in Aperture is simply too disorganized for me. Lightroom makes much more sense to me and I find it much easier to use. However, I'd be willing to bet that, if Apple rewrites Aperture for the iPad, they will have to fix some of the UI problems, and the result might be an iPad app that is capable of editing photos in a fairly serious way. Anyway, I'm hoping this happens and looking forward to it. In the meantime, I'll use the iPad mainly for viewing photos.

We've got a mayoral election coming up here in Dallas (March 14). The candidates were invited to attend a luncheon at the Lakewood Count...
I got there a few minutes early and hung around for about 90 minutes, taking photos as the candidates arrived, schmoozed with the guests, and afterwards as the luncheon got underway. But I didn't stay for their individual presentations or for the Q&A, so I still haven't made up my mind who to vote for. Edward Okpa seemed very genuine to me, and I might vote for him based on that and what I heard of his life story. But my impression is that Okpa is a real long shot and I like for my vote to have a chance to make its small difference, so I'm still looking at the other three guys, too. Need to make my mind up soon!
