With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it's incredibly easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.
The kit includes two connectors, each with a different interface:
- The Camera Connector features a USB interface. Just plug it into the dock connector port on your iPad, then attach your digital camera or iPhone using a USB cable (not included). iPhone 3G is not supported.
- Use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from your camera's SD card. Connect it to your iPad, then insert your digital camera's SD card into the slot.
After you make the connection, 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 to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer's photo library.
What's in the Box?
- Camera Connector
- SD Card Reader

The USB will work with many things, not just a camera!
Things that I found out that you can plug in to the USB connection are USB headphones and USB headsets, USB keyboards and probably Things that I found out that you can plug in to the USB connection are USB headphones and USB headsets, USB keyboards and probably more things. If you buy the package, it comes with two different products, one for a USB connection, and another for an SD card. Also, you can plug any iPhone to the USB port and get your photos off of the iPhone so you can view them on your iPad! This is a very nice product and nothing I would change. If you email the photos with the Mail app on the iPad, they are in 2048x1536 resolution rather than the iPhone's 800x600 emailed resolution. One last thing, once you connect to your Mac, iPhoto brings in full resolution images with EXIF information intact. Great job Apple! The iPad now has a USB port! …

The first connector (30 pin of course) features a USB port allowing you to connect up either your digital camera or iPhone direct The first connector (30 pin of course) features a USB port allowing you to connect up either your digital camera or iPhone direct to the iPad. When connected an application automatically loads up displaying thumbs of images that are available on the camera or iPhone to download. You can then select what you want to copy over. Images are then synced with your PC or Mac is required.
The next connector is almost the same but instead of connecting the camera direct to the iPad it features an SD card slot allowing images to be read directly from the memory card containing pictures. The same app (Photos) is opened up and the same interface. …

A bad joke
The recent upgrade to iOS 4.2 renders the camera connection kit useless. The maximum USB output has been reduced from 100ma to 20m The recent upgrade to iOS 4.2 renders the camera connection kit useless. The maximum USB output has been reduced from 100ma to 20ma which isn't enough to drive this device.
I invested £500 on an iPad specifically to be able to review photos with clients at the end of a shoot. The fact that Apple has suddenly and without any warning stopped supporting the camera connection kit is appalling and leaves me with suddenly needing to find a grand or two for a laptop.
It's even worse that they are still selling this without informing anyone that it doesn't work anymore.
This whole fiasco is a joke and the people involved should be ashamed of themselves. …

Sd kit doesn't work with ios8
I loved my sd card connector for my iPad until I upgraded my system to ios8. If Apple has experienced this glitch with previous I loved my sd card connector for my iPad until I upgraded my system to ios8. If Apple has experienced this glitch with previous updates, why not address it before the update comes out??? Please fix ASAP. Some of us do have real cameras. Would give 4 stars, except you don't address this glitch when you know it is likely to happen!! …

OK if you have a newer camera
Bought this adapter to backup photos from my Canon G2 which I use on trips. Not possible. When the two are connected a get an in Bought this adapter to backup photos from my Canon G2 which I use on trips. Not possible. When the two are connected a get an incompatibility message - G2 is not supported. That makes the product a total waste for my purposes.
Tried it with a newer camera which other family members sometimes use and it worked OK but since they don't usually travel with me and I don't use their cameras it's useless.
I'm hoping to find an app that might work with the G2 but so far no luck and local "experts" say to blame the photo app that came with the iPad - not the adapter. So I'll keep looking. …
