Importing RAW files from iPad into Aperture

Advertisement

Hello,
While on the go, I used the camera connection kit to import some RAW files (.NEF from a Nikon D300s) into my iPad directly from the SD card. The files where correctly imported, they display perfectly in the iPad screen and I was surprised to see no lagging when zooming such big files.
Now the bad thing. When I got back home I tried to import such files into a new Aperture project. When I connect the iPad to my mac, although it takes some time, all the pictures are correctly displayed, but when I hit the import button, aperture keeps turning the task indicator wheel without ever importing a single picture! Cancelling the import task does not work and the only way to get Aperture to work again is by force quitting it.
Any ideas?
Ps.: all my software is updated and running the latest versions (Aperture 3, mac OS X 10.6.4, etc)

The reason why the iPad shows the images so quick is because it is not showing the actual raw data like Aperture does. Instead the iPad does the same as the camera does when showing the photo on your LCD. Each RAW file has an embedded JPG preview. The iPad (and your camera) show that preview image. There is no raw processing happening.
Not sure why copying or importing to Aperture causes you trouble. As soon as I plug my iPad into the USB to my PC it shows up as a folder. I can copy the files from there to my computer.
