You use default setting. It's not a professional monitor, nor is it a professional photo editing tool. It's an overgrown iPod touch. Apple did not design it as a photo editing tool, it's designed as a big gaming screen.

This is also covered and discussed in the many reviews out there.

While I like iPad and own from iPad 1, 2 and now waiting for my NEW iPad to arrive. iPad does makes good presentation medium.

I believe what you are looking for is this
Out There Images Blog » Datacolor iPad Screen Calibration - Spyder Gallery

Due to the security sandbox of Apple apps, it is therefore only Spyder app able to display calibrated colours.

However, I believe it can grow further should the applications are willing collaborate by reading in ICC profiles which can be easily imported into every app that support it. Since the calibration is done with the assistance of an external computer.

With the new Retina display, which is why I adore this latest tablet, I'm sure it can capture audience that wanted good colour reproduction on it.

Added Information

I have looked up the iOS API and found since iOS 4.0 it can readily accept ICC profiles for displaying colour managed contents. Meaning it is definitely possible for every application to participate by allowing ICC profiles.

However don't be happy, because like above mentioned Apple security sandbox model, it means you will need to inject the very same ICC profile for every individual app, until Apple decided to have such an option available throughout the platform.

Let me see if it's possible to whip up a simple proof of concept.

i just got the ipad + 4G 64 gb last nite. And after uploading my full res 16mp pictures onto it, i m really dam impressed with the screen, and the pics really come to live and look super good.

It is also then that i realise that the apple shops used lousy low res photos in their demo units. In the apple shop when i toyed with the ipad 3, i often see grains and blotches when i zoom in their images. But when i use my own 16mp pics, I dun encounter such issues any more.

Another thing which i find is the really good thing for me is that text appears really really sharp, its much much sharper than the ipad 1 and ipad 2. Also, even after i had installed 100+ apps onto it, it still works snappily, very responsive without much lag. This monster is a dream to read text!

Really glad to be able to get it, i tried many many many shops and ran around singapore, before managing to find it.. phew...

Welcome to the new high ground :) if you notice, the blue is more vibrant. :) Go download the Flipboard? It is retina ready and so are the contents. Main issue now is if the app is not retina ready, the quick 2x scale up really makes it looks sucky in the new iPad.

Got the iPad 3 myself right at the release date, no queue at all. Guess I'm lucky. The iPad 3 really shines when used as a presentation device thanks to its retina display. Making an already good device even better.

Better Color And Adobe RGB Performance : Apple's iPad 3, Part 1: The Complete Retina Display And A5X ReviewI have the ipad 2 and 3 side by compared. The some "blacks/shadows" areas of the picture in iPAD2 is shown as dark/not viewable but on the iPAD 3 it still have details!

This is because what i checked is the ipad 3 have a larger gamut range or reached 66% of Adobe 1988 RGB (for those who do color managmenet will undersatnd)



But the downside is the iPAD 3 is WARMER at the back - if used same hours as the ipad2 and flat battery charging takes 6+ hours!

Not sure they can solve the heat issue... troubling :think:

Actually yes ipad 2 not as "sharp" as 3 - but actually not by too much as unlike iPHONE, your viewing distance using an ipad is longer. It is the colors that is better on the IPAD3 that wins hands down.

Is there an adapter for CF card to upload images directly to iPad without PC ? Now, I can only find those with SD.

Sure... I had been using this all this while to preview my photos. The upload is fast too - I shoot RAW files only

The Apple Camera Connection Kit Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit - Apple Store (Singapore)

I used only the CF one... USB didn't try or use. It was more expensive when first sold. I see the price now dropped to $38 :)

PS: It come with the 2 adapters as shown
