    I plan on replacing my MacBook with an iPad Pro. What is going to be the best way to get photos from my CompactFlash card in my Canon 5D Classic to Lightroom CC on an iPad Pro?

    - Eye-Fi card and SD card reader for iPad: https://www.amazon.com/Eye-Fi-Compa...6274&sr=8-3&keywords=compact+flash+adapter+sd

    - Micro USB to USB-C cable (Attach camera directly to iPad): https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matter...1543866502&sr=8-7&keywords=micro+usb+to+usb+c

    - RAVPower FileHub Plus (plug USB CF card reader into USB port and transfer over Wi-Fi): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016ZWS9ZE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Other?

    Open to all suggestions.

    Thanks!

    I’d probably go with option one, but that’s just because I’m familiar with the SDcard transfer process on my 2017 iPad Pro. The USB option may not be too bad either. Might be the simplest way, really.

    I use the CF to SD adapter with my 5D Mark II. It works fine for me. There's no need for an Eye-Fi card with that adapter, just use a standard SD card.

    Just make sure, the iPad Pro actually recognizes the usb-c card readers.
    I personally don't have an iPad Pro, but from online reviews I've seen that usb-c hard drives for example are not recognized.
    Straight shot from camera to iPad would probably work, but be cautious about the readers/hubs.
