If you decide on a Android tablet, DPReview came out with this article last month on their Connect site. Photo Mate R2 is the software and it looks like a good solution for quick post processing on the road. I have been using RAW Droid and Photo Editor on my Galaxy Note 8 but will give this one a try. This would get you under $500 as a solution and a backup solution while on the road as well with your own microSD card.


I just downloaded and tried this $10 app on my Galaxy Note 8. I have my Eye-FI card set to upload both RAW and JPEG to the tablet. I was just playing around with the features and it is very similar to Lightroom. Adjustments are quick and results are immediate which is important, especially working with NEX-7 raw or JPEG files. You can save the developed RAW file out to JPEG for sending off in an email or posting to your social site. XMP sidecar files can be saved for import to LR retaining your adjustments although I haven't had a chance to try this yet. Very slick! The RAM recommendation is 2GB so keep this in mind if you are planning an Android tablet purchase.

I was looking at the galaxy Note series, so I appreciate your input on it, and on Android (not too many people have posted about it). Does the note 8 let you work on the photo side by side with the original file? and do you find working on the 8" screen restrictive; do you think 10" would be more comfortable?

Do you like the stylus?
