GoPro to iPad Air

Postby salvino » Thu Jan 08, 2015 5:49 pm

To connect gopro hero 3 black to iPad Air I plan on using micro card directly to lightening connector.
Any advice?

To clarify, I mean the apple connector for micro card to lightning. So basically the card gets read by iPad. Any input on personal experiences with this? Pitfalls?

Well I would certainly make sure the resolution you shoot in is compatible. I can remember doing this with the iPad 1 and it would not play the HD videos yet,
Also playing directly off the memory card can be choppy and slow, better to bring them onto the iPad Memory. I cannot say all this is ideal, it works good for storage if you have a large enough capacity iPad but playback is not great.

I read somewhere that those things ONLY allow photos or Apple approved video... but that's as far as I got. People were using them like the MicroUSB slots on android tablets but with an iOS updatem, apple shut that down. Can always take it back, I guess.
