How to transfer GoPro raw file (.gpr) onto iPad

Hi,

 

How do I transfer GoPro raw files (.gpr) onto ipad? When using USB to lightning adaptor and a USB card reader the ipad has the below error (even with Apples USB 3 camera adaptor)

Can not use device: Generic USB 2.0. The connected device requires too much power

 

Plan is to use the ipad while travelling to move raw files into Lightroom. Canon DSLR handles this well.  I have even tried direct connecting the GoPro Hero 5 like I do with DSLR, but nothing happens

 

Thanks heaps for your help

 

Cheers

James

Hi Marius,

Thanks for getting back to me. I have tried the app and it only transfers jpg files onto the iPad and not the raw version, even when the GoPro is set to take raw.

Thanks heaps

Re: How to transfer GoPro raw file (.gpr) onto iPad

Hi @jrmorts

 

The GoPro App can only import .JPG files.

To utilize your RAW photos and audio files, you need to insert your microSD card into a card reader and locate the files with your computer’s file explorer.

 

 

 

Thanks!

Re: How to transfer GoPro raw file (.gpr) onto iPad

I'm a little late to the party, but I am able to transfer videos to the iPad via micro sd (w/adapter) to SD card reader for ios devices. The issue comes in when I try to view the footage, the videos won't play...you can however scrub through and view the footage but not press play and have it to work. Please help! I would like to minimize from carrying laptops to just my gopro and ipad.

Re: How to transfer GoPro raw file (.gpr) onto iPad

This is very unfortunate. I have a GoPro 5 only because it takes RAW pictures. And with Lightroom CC I have managed to ditch the laptop and I wanna carry my iPad. Could you please create a ticket to make this available in the future?
