I am importing RAW files directly from my EOS-1Dc to iPhone / iPad via the camera USB cable and an Apple Lightning to USB 3 Camera adapter. The same adapter also allows me to use a standard Lexar USB CF card reader from importing from cards, when power is added to the USB 3 Camera Adapter via a Lightning cable. This does not alow me to import images from a portable HD. At this moment, I am bringing the RAWs into the iOS camera roll, then into LR Mobile.  

I understand, perhaps incorrectly, that it may be possible to bring the images direct to LR mobile? Does anyone know more?

iOS version has to go via the camera roll, unless you're shooting with the camera built into the LR mobile app.
