The main reason I bought my Mini 4 was to have a smaller iPad that would be handy to import, view, and cull photos from trail cameras while I was riding in a bouncy pickup truck. The smaller size of the Mini is just handier than the iPP 9.7 that I had at the time. Unfortunately, some of the cameras may take 4-5K pictures and the Mini’s import is sluggishly slow so I quit using it for my photo imports. I am absolutely delighted with the photo import speed of the Mini 5! I did an unscientific comparison of photo import speed using an 8 G class 10 SD card with 1.35 G of black and white low res photos, 2,655 photos in all. Running iOS 12 on all three devices, used the clock timer app and Photos in split screen. Tapped Start when I tapped Import All, tapped Stop when the import counter hit 0. I used Apple brand SD card readers, same reader for both Minis. All times in min:sec. Mini 4 17:51 Mini 5 3:37 iPP 11 3:04 I’m not concerned about a half minute difference between the iPP 11 and the M5. The difference between the M4 and M5 is HUGE! I’m so happy to have the small photo handling tablet that I’ve been wanting for a while.
