One word: CamRanger.


Buy it, you'll love it.

Someone else (above) mentioned that there is an issue with Nikon RAW support.
But there is no issue, other then that it does not transfer NEF files at all. Nef files are kept stored on the card, you have to put your camera in NEF+JPEG(basic) settings and the device sends a jpeg preview to your iPad.

I have tried it (since yesterday) and it works flawlessly. Setting up the camera is really easy and it even has a focus stacking feature (nice if you do macro or product shoots)

The only thing to keep in mind is that with the D800 big files (36MP) you'll need a 3th or 4th generation iPad (with retina screen) because they have bigger internal RAM. With iPad 2 or iPad mini you will not be able to view the full 36MP resolution files. The app says 'image too large to display'. At 20MP (medium size) it does work, but that's not why we got the D800 in the first place

I am not connected to CamRanger btw, just a consumer using this device since yesterday.
