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.

Not Worth a Star
Absolute garbage. Doesn't recognise SD card is there. Not managed to transfer a single picture. Will have to connect camera to Mac 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. …
