    I have used this multiple times and have had no issue whatsoever with my iPad Air. Plug it in, go to "photos", and click "import" below. I can pull 1080p60 (yes, 60 fps) video or 720p120 from my GoPro Hero 3 and from my Canon SX700. It is excellent because I can then open up those videos in iMovie and make smooth slow-motion videos. I use SanDisk Ultra HD cards. I have yet to use a 64gb card due to some user reviews about having trouble with that, but I am going to get one and try it out here soon.

    I was surprised at all the negative reviews. I am guessing some customers must have camcorders that use incompatible file formats.

    I tried this on my iPad air, it worked intermittently with one of my SD cards then not at all. It did not recognise the JPG.s on my Canon camera card or the card in my Sony camera, I also tried moving photos from my laptop to a different brand SD card this also did not work even after making a file structure on the card imitating a camera card.

    Not Worth a Star

    • Written by from BARROW-IN-FURNESS

    Absolute garbage. Doesn't recognise SD card is there. Not managed to transfer a single picture. Will have to connect camera to MacBook. Total waste of money. Happens too often. I'm done with Apple, and will switch back to PC when I next change. Didn't used to mind the extra cost associated with Apple when the quality was here, but it's not anymore. Take a look at half the rubbish on AppStore as well. Quality control has been reduced to zero.

    Works Flawlessly

    • Written by from La Puente

    I think those that say "nothing happens" are unaware that you have to go into your photos and press the "import" button. Nothing pops up when you insert the SD card. I use mine with a iPad Mini Retina and a 64gb SanDisk with no issues. I even move the entire DCIM folder from my cf cards to the SD card and am able to import images from my DSLR. The ONLY wish item I have is that this would work on the iPhone as well. Other than that no issues.

    Apple greed!

    • Written by from Park Orchards

    I warned my wife not to buy Apple ipad 4 for some $800 AUD, and when she wanted to use it, I found it totally difficult and dumb to use. Even writing this review, for example, there is no back arrow key to correct more than the last keystroke, without destroying all text to that point. Dumb, dumb, dumb. Then we went on holidays and, being used to Windows OS, thought we could upload our photos via card reader into the eye pad and view the photos. Dumb, dumb dumb. Couldn't even recognise the cable.Why? Some idiot at Apple decided, it wouldn't be good to make the Ipad have additional memory just by plugging in a 64gig card, as this would make the extra $300 you spend to get a 64 gig ipad totally unnecessary. Dumb, dumb and greedy greedy greedy. I wish Apple would just go broke and fade away. I swear I will never, never buy anything Apple again.

    I needed a device to store photos so I went out today & bought the iPad mini & this little guy. I almost didn't buy an iPad cause I was worried about being able to transfer pics easily. I was still hesitant after seeing the reviews, but thought/hoped I could figure it out. This was incredibly easy to use. Popped the SD card out of my camera & into the SD Reader & the iPad basically did everything else. Great product, very easy to use!!

    Great bit of kit

    • Written by from Seaham

    Was rather apprehensive when I read that more people said it didn't work than said it did....was brave and bought an original from an Apple store...fantastic bit of kit...loads instantly and then there's the option to chose which to import....carry it with the camera kit so can view my shots and more importantly make tweaks to the camera settings...recommend this ++++

    Does Not Work - Zero Stars

    • Written by from Rohnert Park

    Tried to use with Ipad Mini and nothing happens. I have read every trick and Does Not Work. SD HC 8GB. Does Not Work. Apple has not supplied one answer to this on any website. Waste of money and now I can't use Ipad Mini for trip to France. I can't chance it.

    Works great, if you know how to use it properly:)

    • Written by from castlegar

    All you have to do is plug it in then open the photos app and BAM! All my extremely high quality photos are there, ready to be posted. Some people think that plugging it in will take you to the photos, but that's not true. You plug it in, open photos, notice at the icons on the bottom an extra one you don't normally see and tap it, then you can import or delete photos. Easy as pie.

    My Lightning SD card reader was a waste of money. It doesn't trigger my iPad to open the photo program and so I cannot transfer photos into the iPad. Doesn't work with my 8, 16, or 32 G cards. VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS PRODUCT

    Perfect Ten

    • Written by from Wauwatosa

    After reading all the reviews I was paranoid about this. So I went to store, got one, and connected to my iPad Air. It worked perfectly!

    I tried three different cameras, nikon L24. P90, D3200 with my iPad Air 32 GB . Normal photographs and movies on 8GB. 16GB, and 32GB. Imported in 1 to 2 seconds. All SD cards were Sandisk, ranging from 8 to 32GB, not cheap knock offs. Special thanks to Debbie at the Milwaukee Mayfair store for being so helpful! :>
