Already the iPad is at work

I had a dream last night that I’d tethered an iPad to my Nikon D3 and was using it as an external viewfinder. Several of us had gathered around the device to watch the shoot unfold. And there was this really cool Gorillapod-like device that held the iPad on one end and wrapped around the tripod legs on the other.

In the dream, I’d set up a D3 for RAW captures on one card and for processed jpegs on the second card. So, the jpegs were actually being imported into the iPad (a 64 GB maxiPad, of course) shortly after being written to the card. (In dreams, all the tech works flawlessly.)

Now, in the cold light of day I’m wondering if this could ever happen. Still, what if you could position a camera on a monopod and remotely view captures as the camera is held high above your head? Or, low below your feet? What if you could remotely view captures from a small Eye-fi equipped camera hung from a kite? And on and on.
