    Is this doable? Cheaply? I've looked around for a while and it seems the only way to do this is to jailbreak the thing.

    I'm going on a trip, plan to shoot RAW (22mb files) and I originally planned to put them on a laptop and keep shooting. Now, I'm curious to see if I can just get them onto an ext. hard drive some how without the need of a computer.

    I thought I'd import them to the ipad but it doesn't seem any easier to get them from there to a hard drive.

    I prefer ext HDs since I've got 5 laying around. Also Dropbox is a last resort since upload connectivity is sketchy at destination (also the huge amount of data).

    It's simple. Connect the ipad to your computer via the USB cable and you can download both JPGs and Raw files to your computer. I do it all the time. You cannot go the other way, computer to iPad.

    That would still make the iPad superfluous, but more to the point, the OP said "without the need of a computer."
