Apple's description of the forthcoming camera connection kit for iPad states that it supports raw images; being able to unload raw photos to preview them on the ipads 10" screen while still in the field would be huge. However, I have my doubts about the ipads handling of raw, due to how the 4th generation iPod handled raw images when this very same camera connection kit was originally offered in 2005; it could not display the raw images, only store them. So last night i decided to put the iPad to the test. I uploaded a raw .nef file to my iDisk, as well as email to myself as an attachment. In both scenarios, the iPad downloaded the full 9.8MB file but only displayed a tiny, jagged thumbnail in the middle of the screen. Hopefully, this is not Apple's idea of supporting raw; a 100px wide thumbnail doesn't really do much good.
