Is this a stationary or portable setup ? Check out the gphoto2 project and its compatibilty table in any case.

As long a WiFi is available , WinSCP makes data transfer childs play.

Thank you for the direction.. This is a portable setup that i want to use in my office/studio
Eyefi was something similar but it was not reliable...Camranger is not available for this model of Nikon

I don't have much information but I looked into doing something like what your saying.

It's a very difficult path to take. Apple is very strict about what gets connected to the iPad and writing an app requires paying a subscription.

One option I looked at for RC Cars was to somehow use the RPI as a relay, but you would probably have to write a bunch of software for the pad or the RPI.

You know, one way you could do it is use the RPI to use USB to transfer the photos onto the RPI and then use some software on the RPI to post the pictures someone like Facebook. Then you could download them from Facebook onto you iPad. Or at least view them.

Or maybe even use the camera for the RPI to take the pictures. Then wirelessly send them to somewhere like Facebook.

You could turn either the Pi or the iPad into a WiFi hotspot , and have them connect to each other. I
believe SFTP clients are still available for iOS , even if WinSCP only works on Windows.

Do you use Windows in your office ? Connect the Pi to the office WiFi
and use WinSCP to transfer images and VNC or MobaXTerm to remotely control it.

yes we use windows in the office and have a secure wifi... im a noob with the pi... so it is a fun project for me to learn about it and python. I want to stop taking the card out to read it into the software... Wireless transfer would be much easier...

Thanks
