Moving on from lunacy, this is my fourth in total of IQ2 events. The WiFi implementation is working brilliantly.
I will not take offense to your accusation of Lunacy and comment on the software and workflow implementation
of WiFi preview/review that phase one came up with.
Brilliant is the right word. The idea of moving around only the data needed to display what is seen on the screen is really smart.
It's efficient and logical. The cashing of previously viewed parts of the image makes that even better.
Burried in the thread I made some suggestions that I think could be handy for certain users.
For example one thing that photographers will often want to do is check focus on the eyes.
Using face recognition on the ipad side could be very handy to speed things up.
Full length photo is uploaded to the ipad.
The ipad in the background looks for the face.
The ipad requests the tile of the face from the back and caches it ready for the photographer
to view without having to wait for the image to come from the back.
IF I am not mistaken there is already face recognition in the iPad that might be able to be leveraged.
Another option that might be worth considering is an option to initiate sending files to the ipad when done shooting
a set up or part of a setup. A quickly accessible optional menu item.
It could be used like this..
Photographer shooting with a MF SLR and IQ2.
HE is shooting away with his eye jammed up to the viewfinder with the WiFi on "hold" (paused so to speak).
Any time the photographer pauses he or she can send a few frames over to the iPad.
You could have an option to send frames for example starting from the last ones or send 1 in 5.
You could then have this option set up to go back to "hold" when the photographer half presses the shutter release.
This could be useful in several ways. First it would reduce exposure of the eye to the Wifi RF, save batter use, as well as help keep clutter off the iPad during a shoot. There are also many times that in the flow of things one needs to keep shooting even if the subject looks wrong just to move past what is wrong. This would be a nice way to keep this sort of stuff in the camera and off the Ipad. There is no reason to show either client or
subject the wonky shots.
