Re: Portable Device for a Photographer to Show His Work

I would be wary of the iPad+AppleTV solution. I've done this with the 3rd gen iPad and 3rd gen AppleTV and the problem there is that for connected displays to the Apple TV that have a native 16:9 aspect it will not use the full width.

I originally was testing this as a working solution for my wife as a class room instructor, but since you can't get the iPad to display through the AppleTV full-width (added vertical bars) for the 16:9 projector is was a let down, IMO.

Maybe a jailbroken iPad can do this (as someone else suggested) but that was going outside my scope of interest.

BTW, the 3/3.5 generation iPad have nice resolution and a Retina display, but unless you are sticking your nose up close you may need to question your eyes' ability to resolve that wonderful resolution. The inter-cone/rod is about one arc second, no? That could suggest a viewing distance for the iPad in landscape more of ~1.5 screen widths.

I do not own a Mac or Apple TV, so getting an iPad would solely be for the Retina Display. I would want to purchase something that does not need additional tweaking (jailbreak) to function for me.

Thanks again.
