With more photographers downsizing there gear and making the switch from the bulky DSLR’s and jumping into the smaller slimmer mirrorless market is the desktop and laptop market also taking a hit? For my workflow I find that I am picking up one of my iPads to do my post processing over my laptop 97% of the time and my surface pro 3 the rest of the time totally phasing out the heavier and bigger laptop.
So what’s the reason for this shift? For me the shift to the iPad for my post processing is it’s convenience, the iPad is one of those pieces of equipment that you always have with you. The iPad is multi purpose and I tend to use it for reading books, as my calendar, typing notes and creating documents so it replaces a few things that I would have normally carried in my bag. The iPad is my go to tool because of the ease of transferring my images from my camera and SD card either through wifi or an accessory attachment and being able to use the RAW/DNG file is a great plus. And you can’t forget about size and weight in my last blog I spoke about my switch from DSLR to the Fuji mirrorless system as my day to day setup I spoke about my back surgeries and the necessity to carry lighter gear.
I use the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil I have both the 12.9 and the 9.7 inch versions, the 12.9 is the one I keep home and the smaller 9.7 is my travel iPad that stays in my bag. With using these devices they open a new world of tools to use when editing your photos my favorites include adobe Lightroom mobile, Snapseed, Pixelmator, and Photoshop express.
