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.

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.

I have tried several SD cards, none larger than 8Gb capacity and one new one with one low resolution photo on it. Nothing. One card with old photos did work, but when I deleted the photos on my PC and loaded ones I wanted to put on my iPad - nothing.
