Ipad2 for Presentations

Just got an iPad2 for Christmas. Awesome piece of machinery.

And even better if you’re a photographer.

And I love it – because I get double value since I’m going to use it when I give my talks.

The iPad2 is perfect for presentations – whether you’re proofing your work or you’re displaying.

Ok… this is how it works.

iPad2 – then you need a very cheap attachment for video to a projector and another cable for audio (if you need it).

Of course you need the projector – but if you are presenting somewhere where there is already a projector – you’re golden.

Ok… for other people that are NON-Photographers… they will need to create their display using a slide show program.

But since we already know how to work Photoshop – I’m simply downloading an album and then displaying that album.

But when I say that you don’t need a slide program – basically – I label my presentation by numbers 01, 02, 03… etc.

And if I need to flash a logo or some text – I actually make a 8×10 picture of it.

So it’s pretty simple.

If you already have a iPad2… that’s the start.

From there? To display? It’s a one cord you have to buy to connect to the projector. And another cord if you want sound.

Here they are:

Of course the iPad2 if you don’t already have it:

Apple 16GB iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (White)


Then use this to connect to the projector:

Apple Digital AV Adapter


If you need sound to go from your iPad to the projector:

Hosa¤Technology CMM-105C 3.5mm Male to 3.5mm Male Coiled Cable (5′)


And if you need a projector:

Viewsonic PJD5133 2700 ANSI Lumens DLP Projector
