While many cameras now pack Wi-Fi connectivity for the wireless sharing and transferring of captured images, those owning cameras without such capabilities need not necessarily have to shell out cash for an entirely new camera to get wireless connectivity.

CF and SD card readers put your pix on your iPad

Although the LCD screens on most cameras are sufficient for reviewing your shots, wouldn’t it be even better to be able to check them out on the larger screen of an iPad?
