Yes, you can import RAW (ORF) photos from the E-P2 into the Apple iPad. View this video on YouTube which demonstrates using the iPad Camera Connection Kit to import E-P2 RAW files into the iPad.

A post related to the above video can be found on the Aperture Users Flickr group, and this should be useful to those who are using Aperture on Macs and are wondering about the integration between the iPad and Aperture. “stormstereo” writes:

I asked the uploader:
“Thanks for that! I just want to confirm one thing.
After syncing the iPad to either Aperture or iPhoto, is the synced raw-file exactly as it would be if you imported directly from the card to Aperture/iPhoto? In other words: Does the iPad middle step degrade the file/photo in any way?!

He answered:
“After reading your message, I took a test photo with my Olympus E-P2 Camera set in RAW mode. The test shot reported by the camera was 12.91 MB, 4032x3024. After importing the shot into my iPad via the Camera Connection Kit SDHC Card Reader, I connected my iPad to my iMac and launched Aperture (I don’t use iPhoto). I selected Import and choose the iPad.

I selected the test photo I shot and Aperture reported the same size and dimensions — 12.91 MB, 4032x3024. There appears no degrade from the original shot taken with the camera. Good News!

PS… Metadata appears to be unaltered as well.”
