    Can you recommend a "raw converter" ?

    Thanks

    I'd be happy to but I'm not terribly conversant with Apple OS's and software. I would *think* that just about any application you would use to view your photos on, say your iPad, can probably (probably!) open your raw files. This is different than importing raw files however because an Import function is (I'm assuming) looking for a digital image extension (e.g. .JPG, .GIF etc.)

    So, I'd suggest you simply transfer a raw file onto your iDevice, try opening that raw file with whatever software you would use to review and/or edit your JPG's and see where that gets you; no need to over complicate things, right? If you can open the raw file with your current software you will, most likely, be able to *save* the raw file as a JPG. I'm thinking that would solve your problem. All THAT being said, know that raw files do NOT look as good as .JPG's and need to processed in order to be the best they can be. If you intend to process your raw files then the software you already have on your iDevice may, or may not, be up to the task of doing that. That's really a whole 'nuther set of issues, though.

    I'm sorry I can't be more Apple specific but hopefully I've given you a starting point. I'm thinking @Dawg Pics and maybe @hark is/are Apple-People... Maybe one of them can offer some insight or know who else on the forums use Apple devices.

    It sounds like you want an Apple Lightning to SD card reader cable.

    I don't put RAW images on my iPhone, but this might offer you some info.

    I am not familiar with transferring image files in that manner. I just use a card reader. On an iMac, you can transfer a raw image right into a folder or onto the desktop and view them without converting them first. I don't use my iPad for images so can't help you there either. Sorry.

    I did locate this article. It appears that you don't need to convert the files. They convert into jpegs for viewing.

    First Look: iPad Camera Connection Kit | Macworld

    (from the article)
    If you shoot Raw+JPEG, the two files will be represented by one optimized JPEG, but both original files will be stored on the iPad and sync with your computer. The iPad also creates a smaller version of video files while keeping a copy of the original.
