Normally I travel with a notebook computer (currently a 15" MBP) on which I do some light photo editing and transfer files (via SCP and hotel's WiFi) to my home server overnight. Also normally (really always) I travel by car and carry all my gear. However I've got a trip by air coming up and am considering buying an iPad to take along. We've got a first generation iPad which is useless for this. Is the following doable? Have you done it? Shoot RAW Transfer to iPad using Camera Connection Kit. Preview and cull in iPhoto. (Probably forgo any photo editing as I use Aperture + Nik + Photomatix Pro.) Rely on Photo Stream to suck up the photos to iCloud. Run Aperture on my server at home to pull down the photos from iCloud photostream while I'm gone. These need to be the RAW images. Presumably I'll end up with the RAW images on the server. Let me put it this way -- I must end up with the RAW images on the server! Might not need that last step if there is no limitation on the number of photos held in Photo Stream. I know there is a 30 day limit but is there an image limit as well?
