I'm going on a walking trip in two months' time. I'd like to take a D800 and iPad.

Is there an easy way to download my photos from the d800 to the iPad? I'm thinking there must be but can't figure out what it is.

There are two ways I download to the iPad from D700/D800/D4

For all of the above cameras Apple camera connect set has a USB-> iPad adapter. Use that and a cable. Reasonably fast even with D800 files. Plus you get to choose which files you actually download. Downside is that every time you hook the camera/card up the iPad is going to make a new gallery of what's on the card even if it's downloaded.

The second method, at least with the D800, is an Eye-Fi card.

Very fast. Nothing but the camera, card and iPad. Downside is it does use a noticeable amount of camera battery to get it done.

Good luck.
