  • OFR / RAVpower files query

    Hi all,

    I'm back again, it's been a while but I am absolutely loving my E-510.

    I have had a bit of nightmare transferring files as we only have iPads so using a USB input has proved unsuccessful.

    A good friend recommended the All in one filehub by ravpower RP-WD03, a wireless router, media sharing and 6000mAh ext battery.. Slight problem, my iPad seems to have discovered the folder but when it tries to read the files it states it is not supported..They are coming up as ORF files in a DCIM folder..

    This would be great if it works as it means we can access my photos without messing around with cables or old laptops..Please tell me there's a way around this. I am using an iPad Air.

    If you can shed any light on this it will be greatly received, thanks.

    Hello, welcome back...

    I've just tried both Lightroom and PS Express on my iPad and they both open the ORF file directly from the card, plugged into the iPad SD Card adaptor.

    The iPad's "Photos" APP only opens jpg files.

      IIRC - at least on the E500 I had, you could edit an ORF file in the camera and save as jpeg, retaining the original ORF. Your iPad should then 'see' the jpegs.

      I think you did it by viewing the file and then pressing OK.

        Don't forget new things are being implemented with iOS 11 now. I'm not updating my iPad (at the moment).

          Doesn't this tell you something - that maybe it's time to escape from the Apple 'ghetto'?

            Yeah, avoid Apple products like the plague.
