This week we're going to take a look at Luna Display, an amazing little device that turns your iPad into a wireless second display for your Mac. I backed the Kickstarter for this around a year ago, and have been very excited to finally use it after it was...

    Martin, I’ve tried a few app before and I’ve always been disappointed but Luna runs great. This is really cool running a second display of Lightroom also. A nice way of being able to show a client some photos without having them behind your computer screen. I also do some web design and being able to have some text or graphics that a client has sent on one screen for copy/paste is a real time saver. Thanks for sharing. Luna is a winner in my book. Now I’ve got to dig a little deeper to see just what it can do.

      Hi Mark,

      I couldn’t agree more. I’m really pleased you are enjoying Luna too.

      I was also thinking that it will make doing ad-hoc workshop sessions better during my workshops. At the moment on tours that I don’t take a projector, people gather around my little 13″ MacBook Pro screen, but now I’ll be able to mirror the screen to a second 13″ screen on my iPad Pro! Both are small screens but having two of them will make it so much better.

      Regards,
      Martin.

    I’ve asked Astro team if they will support vertical orientation, that’d make a great client monitor during tethered shoot.

    Dear Mr. Martin Bailey,

    I’m wondering, if you still use LUNA working with Capture One, for example using the new healing function, or drawing masks.
    Do you have any experience in using Catalina`s sidecar as 2nd monitor function.

    (Sorry, my English is really bad).

    Sincerely
    Eduard Boiger

      Hi Eduard,

      Thanks for stopping by and for the comment.

      Since the release of Catalina, I have actually not used Luna at all. Sidecar works flawlessly and I have been using it in many different ways. Because of that, I haven’t tried working with Capture One via Luna for quite some time, especially not with the new features. I haven’t tested with Sidecar either for that matter, and I’m a bit pushed for time right now, but I’ll try it and get back to you over the next few days.

      Your English is perfect Eduard! Nothing to worry about there.

      Regards,
      Martin.
