S: The imported images (to iPad) are highly compressed or optimized for iPad for viewing. So, if you take JPEG pictures using your Nikon camera at the max resolution (>10M PIXAL), you get >8MB files for each compressed file as an output. If you check the file size in your iPad, it will be much less than 8MB each. I suspect that you may end up losing quality of your original JPEG pictures taken by your camera in the iPad. iPad is good for viewing the pictures with a larger screen but it may not he a good device for storage..... unless you are willing to scarify the quality of your images. If storage is your main concern, you should just buy extra memory card for it. Nowadays, the memory card is so cheap and small, providing a much convenience to carry them in a trip easily.
Anonymous, Thanks for the info. I've back them up in an extra hard disk.Memory cards are cheap but I'm even cheaper!! No money ...>_<...
Anonymous, I just double checked those files I transferred to iPad first then back to Macbook (or hard disk) yesterday, the file size are comparable to normal. I usually choose M (Medium) when taking pictures, I recall it should be 5 or 6M pixal and noted the file sizes are usually under 5M. In case if there is any other way to check etc, do let me know though quality is not my highest priority. ^_^
