With the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, it’s easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad or iPad mini so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.
After you insert the SD card into the reader, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organises them into albums. When you sync iPad or iPad mini to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer’s photo library.
The Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader supports standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.

Does exactly what the name suggests.
Although some people complain that you can't transfer other things like music or games over this peripheral, that's the nature of Although some people complain that you can't transfer other things like music or games over this peripheral, that's the nature of Apple. What you can do though is exactly what the name suggests and what the thing was made for.
Whilst out and about I can easily take pictures using my SLR and then put my SD card into the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader and pop that into the lightening port. This then allows me to transfer my pictures straight to the iPad and into it's camera roll without needing a computer.
Although it may be a bit pricey, the iPhone 5 doesn't support it and it's only limited to transferring pictures, it does exactly what I need and is very simple to use whilst also being compact. …

Not for professional use
Was hoping to use this while travelling with my DSLR instead of lugging around my MBP. I only shoot in RAW which is fine because i Was hoping to use this while travelling with my DSLR instead of lugging around my MBP. I only shoot in RAW which is fine because it supports the Canon 6D. HOWEVER... Insert your SD card and it will literally take hours to 'find' all the files on the card and then after waiting for ages for it to find them all it will generate previews for you. Only once this is done can you choose which ones you want to import. So in essence it's useless unless you have a whole evening spare.
Save yourself £25 and use Canon's free remote where you can transfer the files to hour iPad over wifi, sure it's not RAW but it's quick. Guess my iPad Air won't be replacing my MBP on the go anytime soon. Shame. …

Does not work on iPhone
Only works with iPad, not iPhone. This ought to be reflected in the product name by adding "for iPad". Better still, why don't App Only works with iPad, not iPhone. This ought to be reflected in the product name by adding "for iPad". Better still, why don't Apple add support for it to the iPhone? Apple Premium Reseller actually took mine back, tested it and then issued a replacement because they also thought it worked with iPhone. I want to be able to back up photos onto iPhone when travelling and use photos for blog.
Integration with iPad is also an issue. Intermittently, the iPad Mini does not recognise it. It does work well most of the time.
Finally, as with other reviewers, I feel ripped off by Apple as the USB adaptor is now a separate item at another £25 when previous generations supported twin connectors. Similarly, iPad 2 will not work with the adaptor previously purchased for my iPod Classic (iPod with Video). …
