I was somewhat wondering that you couldn’t find such bundles out there. Adorama has a kit bundling the Rebel T4i/650D and a New iPad (3th gen) with 32GB and the Apple Camera Connection Kit for $1,375.95 (click here), that’s $100 off the price you normally would pay for the two items. The New iPad (3) does amazing well for photographers. Beside the awesome Retina display, there are some very cool apps for photographers out there. My favorite for post processing is Snapseed ($4.99), with RAW support and its powerful yet intuitive to use U-point technology. Since I am using Snapseed I fire up Lightroom 4 much less: most of the needed corrections etc can comfortably be made on the iPad. Files are not crunched, nor are there other limiting factors (well, I wouldn’t use the iPad with file sizes over 20MB). Other great apps are Photogene ($2.99) and Photoforge 2 ($2.99). Together with the new Rebel T4i/650D this kit makes a perfect starter for (new) photographers that want to stay light. It’s perfect for traveling, at least it was for me during the three months I spent in SE-Asia last year. And then I had a first gen iPad.
