I don’t know if this is new, but for iPad owners it’s definitely worth checking out. Definitely handy if you need to check focus real quick.
Miha shared this video with us.
From the vimeo description:
Things you need:
– Jailbroken iPad
– iFile app from Cydia: here
CF Card reader for iPad
, of course you can use Camera Connection Kit for SD cards also.
All formats recorded with DSLR can be previewed direclty from your card.
When you connect card to ipad, you need to close Photos App first, because it won’t let you play your video files.
Then launch iFile and navigate to Flash Drive 1 (/var/mnt/mount1/DCIM/your folder/your file. Click it and play it with default video player.
I rarely post about product sales. The 2 cards on the left cost around $300 where I come from, so I thought it would be interesting for you US people to know that you can have them for $119.95. They’re $76 off at B&H here.And while I’m on it here are some more reduced flashcards from B&H:
Transcend 32GB SDHC Cl 10
Transcend 64GB SDXC Cl 10
3x Lexar 16GB 600x CF cards
$265 here ($90 off)
3x Lexar 8GB 600x CF cards
$171 here ($54 off)
If some of you US people have some time please share your shopping experience with B&H. From what I can tell as a European guy they seem very motivated and dedicated in what they do, they seem to be listening to the customers and to be interested in HDSLR people.
We’re thinking about opening a separate section for some of their deals which wouldn’t interfere with the news section. Please share your thoughts, ideas and wishes.

Yes this CF card case costs only $12 and it still does what these cases should do with a long time quality.
These CF and SD cards are rugged pieces of plastic, but it doesn’t hurt to have an additional layer of ruggedness around them. After all they hold our precious footage.
Cases like these will not only protect the cards from brutality, but also from water and dust and most importantly keep them all in one place so they don’t get lost easily.
I tend to throw my cards into the smallest pocket of my camera bag and I never had problems with that technique, but when I’m on an important shoot I like to have a safe place and use these cases.
The $12 noname CF card case from ebay is great. I’ve used it a lot and while the rubber is wearing off a little it still holds CF in place and the quality is very good. It feels solid and not cheap at all.You can get it on ebay (US) and here (EU 8€)
I can also tell you that the case above doesn’t hold SD cards very well. For SD you should get another case like ebay (US) or here (EU)
If you’re interested in these cases but don’t want them shipped from China, here are several other affordable items from B&H:
Gepe Card Safe $19
Gepe Card Safe Mini $13
HPRC Crushproof $24
Pelican Case for 8 SD $20
Pelican Case for CF $20
(Maybe we can get some more together in the comments)
