We have all seen the announcement today of the oversized Apple iphone/ tablet thingy called the “ipad”. It looks the next gadget to have for sure…but what intrigues me is would it be possible to get an adapted version of the Canon live view software for the Mac onto the ipad, connect up a USB lead to the Canon HD-DSLR cameras and we would have a very nice monitor that doesn’t disable the camera’s LCD screen, like we can do with our laptops currently…I know it’s not running OSX but surely it must be possible…?!
We have the camera connection kit which turns the dock connector into a USB port…so it must be possible!?
Am not saying I want to use the “iPad” as a dedicated monitor, for that I recommend a dedicated monitor! But just something instead of giving director my laptop which is current situation.
Only one thing though…SURELY Apple had seen this MadTV spot from 2006 before they decided on the name?! Please do not watch the below video if you are a bit prudish!
