I also like the look of ultrabooks with detachable screens. Surface Pro and the Lenovo Thinkpad Helix look pretty good

For resolution, the Google Nexus 10 inch has a 2560-by-1600 display (higher than the iPad), and a $400 price tag for the 16GB version.

p.3 #5 · p.3 #5 · Best Tablet for Photography?


I spend a lot of time sorting out what to buy.

In the end I didn't find anything better than the Transformer Infinity Pad.

It has full HD resolution, which is enough for displaying pictures. Its screen is very very good and quite accurate.
Not as high res as the new Nexus, or the iPad, but who really cares?

I think the other things it offers are way more important for a photographer tablet.
I bought the dock, also, which basically makes the tablet a laptop.

In the tablet itself, apart from the internal memory, there is a microSD slot, which can be used to expand the memory. This is already a good thing.
But when you put the dock, things really change.
The dock has an extra battery and a USB 2 port, which means I can attach pretty much everything I want to it.
Notice that with a USB OTG cable you can plug things in the tablet itself, but the energy is limited so not many pheriperals can be plugged at the same time.
The dock solves that. Also there is a SD card reader in the dock, and a microHDMI connection.

Basically with this tablet I can use my cameras tethered, make a backup plugging the card reader OR using the SD card and an external hard drive, connect it to the TV for a slideshow or a workshop and many many more things.
Also having a keyboard to type is much better than typing on the tablet itself.

For me the versatility of this tablet pays more than the few extra geeky pixels.

Cheers,
G.

Oh well, it runs a lot of real Android software, usually everything you need apart from computing intensive applications, for which you don't want a tablet, don't you?

oh no I want my tablet to run the software that runs my camera both wired and wirelessly. I want to use software that i'm used to use to look the images over and supports my raw images natively. yes I want it all.

There is all what you ask sjms.
Or do you mean you want to use the actual software you use on your desktop on a tablet?

Than take a Win8 tablet...if you use Win...if Mac, oh well, good luck!

I'm sure your desire/wants/needs will be met in a couple of years if not sooner.

sjms, I'm sorely tempted by the Surface Pro as well.

My only question mark is the usability of the keyboard when not on a flat surface. That and battery life. I do love the thought that I could grab a tablet and go but still have a full computing experience when I need it.

I can live with the 5 hr supposed battery life and it does have a software based keyboard which I find easy to use while in hand. the keyboard is similar to the ipad and I adapted to that easily. in a few weeks i'll know when in a MS store which is a few miles away.

I had a ipad 3 w/retina display for about 4 months. though it did show the image in good resolution the colors were not as accurate as I had hoped after all the hype. the amount of additional cost/hardware reqd to control/operate and retrieve images due to the lack of universal porting (none) on these devices just made me wipe it and hand it over to my daughter who is also less then enamored with its capabilities.

I wish Surface Pro had released contemporaneously with RT... or that they hadn't even bothered with RT. The Pro product as hte potential to be very interesting.
