Re: iPad Photosmith app, Lightroom plugin, and iPad filenames

Flightdeck,

My personal belief is that the eye-fi card is inherently 'flakey' and that it is 'heroically optimistic' to expect it to send 1000 jpegs to the ipad trouble free (it would also take about 30 minutes).

If my camera had two card slots I would split my RAW and jpegs and use the camera connection kit but it doesnt. Of course if you only have one card the camera connection kit sucks up all your RAWs as well which is useless. The eye-fi is fine upto around about 100 shots.

Obviously with 1000 shots though, it is where Photosmith is of most use - you dont want to be sorting all those RAW files in LR. So the obvious thing to do is plug your SD card into your PC, copy your jpegs to a folder and then sync your folder to the camera roll via itunes. It is not a terrible sexy solution but it will be quicker and wont give you problems (unless you have an ipad 3 and havent updated itunes.) I think that even when you get your eye-fi card up and working you are going to find you will always have problems using it for 1000 jpegs.

(BTW as a final solution for your card. Try putting it back in your camera and taking a few more shots. It might kick start it back into action.)
