iPad Pro vs Surface Pro 4 for photographers?

6 years 3 months ago #475847 by Frost Photography
Morning everyone.  So any of you using either of these and can shed some light on your thoughts?  Good business tool or more consumer product?  I'd like something that I can use as a business tool.

iPad Pro I'm sorry to say is an over priced disappointment.  I wanted to like it, however it's no match to the Surface Pro 4.   I hope Apple steps up their game soon.

+1 on the Surface Pro. I hate to admit it because I hate Windows with a bloody passion, but it is miles ahead of the iPad.

Apple got lazy.  I really dislike saying that, however I waited in line for the iPad Pro and after a few hours was not all that impressed.  The pencil is nearly worthless unless you like to draw.  

I hope Apple has some surprises for us this year, otherwise I'll be making the switch to PC.

Another disappointed Apple fan here. Sad to say the iPad Pro has nothing on the Surface Pro.

It's alright, would have been cool if it had more RAM in it.

I'm a digital artist . I was looking for the XP-Pen Artist 12 Pro display drawing tablet which is 11.6 inches so it's smaller. My workspace is quite comfy and I have my couch right next to my desk so I could always take the tablet and draw while watching TV. The thing that I like about the iPad/surface pro though is that I can leave the house easily with them.
In my opnion the iPad Pro is a lot better to draw on than the surface because you get the higher refresh rate(120hz) which results in lower input lag when drawing. Also the apple pencil supports a wider range of pressure sensitivity.

I'm an iPad girl, so you have my answer.  I don't have the Pro iPad, but mine is used almost daily.  Love it.

i have the ipadPRO11-2020
i work with color and i can say the screen is real sh*t....
the black color is absent as color, there is no dynamic contrast, it is unrealistic to work, I wanted to use it as a second monitor, but stop this idea.
with backlight 100% black around #18142b
~ 17% deviation in brightness from pure black. (# 000000)
"this" is called the best ips screen on the market ...
I have an OLED near, compare near its black - just looks like TN  ..
everything higher in the range - well, it's looks pretty .. if in bright light or in contrast img you don't even notice the colors right away until you fill most of the screen with black at home or in the darkness ...
so if you have many night photos..the black areas on it you will see like just haze...huge haze, only haze..
only way is down backlight around 30% and down..its not enouh but you can see contrast ratio more correct...
sorry Apple fans, but I don't like pink snot, I'm realistic and objective.

Staying away from MS and being invested in Mac's ecosystem,
I got myself the iPad — mainly as a platform for my portfolio. I
love that thing.
