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 organizes 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.

Have a 16GB ipad mini, but how to pack around a lot of videos to watch without clogging my ipad mini?

Use this with a card to keep X ammount of videos to watch and upload at whim to my mini to watch, also use SD card as a photo library. basically this makes your ipad mini into a much larger platform for getting vids and pics onto it without having your computer at hand to upload new / diff vids or photos from. which is perfect for travel where you want a HUGE GB of vids to upload to watch on your ipad mini. …

NO IPHONE SUPPORT!!! WTH!
I bought this for my 64gb iPhone 5s to unload my photos off my sd card. I assumed this would work for it! It did not support it at I bought this for my 64gb iPhone 5s to unload my photos off my sd card. I assumed this would work for it! It did not support it at all. This is stupid. It's a lightning to SD card reader! I have 64 freaking gigabytes of memory! What's the point of having so mic space if I cannot use this. I'm mad that apple limits this to only iPads... It should by iPad SD card reader.. Not lighting. …

I was amazed by the negative reviews that I had read regarding this accessory, I was having second thoughts before buying it. Fina I was amazed by the negative reviews that I had read regarding this accessory, I was having second thoughts before buying it. Finally I made up my mind and decided to try it in the store before purchasing.
I have an iPad air and I use a canon 60D and I only shoot in RAW. It is super simple, super fast, even when dealing with RAW images. The iPad was able to identify all of the pictures (even all the videos in my case although the store said It won't be able to deal with videos, but lucky me right? =D). The import process was easy and fast considering the size of RAW images. I was able to deal with the RAW images in all of the supported applications with no issue at all. The only annoying thing that I had found (which is only a preference related issue) is that the iPad after importing the pictures ask whether you want to delete the imported pictures where in the first couple of times I deleted the pictures by mistake from my SD Card (I would prefer if apple added an option where people can choose to not get this question).
I don't understand the issue with all of the other reviewers and if some of them are just dissing this accessory so consumers can focus on other 3rd party accessories.
This is a must buy for all photographers like me who were sick of being forced to include a laptop in the process of editing and posting pictures. …
