iPad is Here!

Filed under: Gear — Tags: , — Henry Scott @ 8:43 pm

Believe it or not, but I got a small grant funded to buy an iPad and a Camera Connection Kit for this trip, and the iPad arrived today. The key part of my proposal was that the iPad would allow me to do some preliminary photo processing en route instead of waiting until I return to deal with hundreds, if not thousands, of photos featuring the geology of our national parks for my course on the subject. I’ll also use it for maintaing this blog (I’m composing this post on the iPad).

The iPad should be perfect for this trip due to its small size, light weight and convenient charging via USB — I can keep it charged via the E-Werk!

Unfortunately, the Camera Connection Kits are backordered, but hopefully mine will arrive next week.

I have plans for another overnighter this coming Sunday, and I look forward to seeing how well charging via the E-Werk works out — more soon!
