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. …

It works I was very hesitant about buying this after reading many reviews stating this does not work. I decided to take a chance. It works fine with my new ipad air and the pic transfers were instant. Just plug in and go. Some of these reviews mention plugging it into a camera.? If thats what you wish to achieve then it would not work. This is an SD card reader as far as I am aware. If it's supposed to do anything else then maybe it doesn't work. But it does read my SD card! That's all I can report,really :) …

Works with iOS7 fine
I have ordered a couple of these off eBay and they claimed to be Genuine Apple. But none of them worked. However - the real deal d I have ordered a couple of these off eBay and they claimed to be Genuine Apple. But none of them worked. However - the real deal did work - and although I think the price is a bit steep, I can now take my iPad with my camera and download (or is it upload) pics from the SD card, meaning I have an instant back up and large viewing / editing screen using the iPad.
In reality I spent 2/3 of the price on cheaper ones that didn't work - should have known better. Hope this review saves you money. …
