    Minimal functionality.

    • Written by from Felixstowe

    OK - you can load pics from SD cards from (certain) cameras. End of story. Thought I would be able to use it to import pics from my PC, via the SD card. No way. Appears not to read the photo files direct, but only via the index used by a camera. Similatly, won't read a USB stick with pics on it. And the SD card mounted in a USB card carrier yields "too much power". WHY do Apple take so much trouble to make life difficult?

    Works great with musicians

    • Written by from Loughborough

    I use this to hook my iPad with Retina Display to my Behringer Mixer using the Lightning to 30-pin adapter (cordless) and Behringer UCA222. Also works great with cameras but my old Sony Bloggie is not supported (uses too much power). Apple please help!

    Dont even think about buying....

    • Written by from Nr Retford

    What an utter waste of money!

    My Pro SLR doesnt use SD cards. Ok fair enough, that was obvious, but no USB reader, even independantly powered ones read in the device. So it cannot be used. What good is that? just comes up with a message saying the device uses too much power. What?

    Add to that the fact that the USB reader is only for photographic files and nothing else and Apple have just boosted their profit level again.

    I am a big Apple user, but am becoming disillusioned with their products and attitude.

    One star is too great a credit for this derisory product.

    Plug and Play

    • Written by from BRIDGEND

    It arrived
    I opened the packing
    I switched on my Lumix G
    I switched on my iPad 2
    I plugged in the USB cable into the camera
    I plugged the adapter into the iPad
    I plugged the cable into the adapter
    Software started and opened an import page showing me all the photos.
    You could pick to delete or import either single shots or all of them
    SD card adapter was just as simple. What more do you want????

    No longer works

    • Written by from Deptford

    I used this to copy photos from my iPhone 4 to my iPad 2 while on holiday & it worked great. I've now upgraded to an iPhone 5 & a new iPad (ie 3rd Gen) and all I get is a "accessory not supported" message when I connect it to my iPad.

    *sigh*

    Contrary to Other peoples reviews..

    • Written by from Hemel Hempstead

    Ive had this camera connector since the 1st Gen iPad came out and I've never had an issue with the results its always connected fine with my iPad and surprisingly the iPad could even read my RAW files from a Samsung NX10, a Nikon D5100 and now my Nikon D800, I cannot vouch for any other cameras as I havent tried them with it, I usually plug the SD card in rather than the camera wire, although transfer speeds seem pretty much the same.
    I'm planning to upgrade my iPad when the new one comes out early 2013 which i assume will use the lightning adapter like in the new iPhone so i suppose i'll have to get a new adapter, its just a shame you cant use this adapter with the iPhone 4S but all in all i think this is a good product and fits my needs.

    Big Let down

    • Written by from sandy

    Got this to go through camera photos while on holiday and sort them on the card , ie delete them from the card , but you have to copy them to the I pad before you can do any thing to them , does not help when you have a 32gb camera card and only a 16 gb iPad with 2gb free space
    . I just wish you could view photos from card and delete the dodgy ones with out copying them to the I pad . And a shame you can't copy/ move them back from the iPad to the card :-(

    Connector and Nikon S6300

    • Written by from St Sampson

    I bought the camera and connector so that I can review photos on my iPad2 and send some to family and friends while on holiday. Alas the iPad won't download the photos as more power is required. I researched both products thoroughly and found no reference to this problem anywhere. Both products will have to back to Amazon.

    Camera connection kit and Flip video

    • Written by from ROCHESTER

    Using ipad 3 the camera connection kit works great with the Flip mino hd 3rd gen video camera. Just plug it in and all the files upload direct from the camera. I also use iMovie. The price is a bit steep at £25.00 but then it's an Apple!

    Check camera settings for USB power!

    • Written by from Radlett

    Just got one of these and using with Sony dsc-hx5. Initially got the error USB requires too much power. However a tip on another forum suggested looking at camera settings and turning the USB power function off. Found it under memory card settings turned it off and hey presto works a treat. Worth checking your camera settings if you get this error

    Tempremental

    • Written by from Glenrothes

    I have found the camera kit very unreliable. It connected perfectly to my ipad then became tempremental. Now it no longer works and tells me It takes too much power. I cannot find a fix for this any where. Come on Apple get your act in gear as I love it when it works........

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Bromley

    I bought this product with my ipad 3. What I wanted to do was load RAW files on the ipad from my Canon 7D which only uses compact flash cards. I was a bit concerned about the CCK from other reviews. I spoke to a sales assistant in the Regent Street Apple store and he assured me it would work. I tried with the camera direct to ipad, perfect. Then I tried with my multi-chip card reader , that did not work as the ipad did not have enough power to run it. I ordered a single chip card reader from eBay, perfect again. The largest compact flash card I use is 8GB so I can't be sure if larger ones will work,

    Buyer BEWARE

    • Written by from southend on sea

    Naively bought this, thinking it would be compatible with a Nikon S6200.
    It is NOT as 'the attached accessory uses too much power'.
    The only way round this problem is to take out the SD card & use the 2nd card connector.
    This defeats the whole point of buying a CAMERA connector.
    Caveat Emptor indeed :(

    Completely useless

    • Written by from Challock

    This item works with some iPads and not with others. How can Apple sell such an unpredictable product with no hint at point of sale that it could be £25 wasted on completely useless piece of kit ?

    Does not work

    • Written by from Rudgwick

    This adaptor does not work with the iPad 2, all it says is "this connected USB device requires too much power" it doesn't seem that apple support this device anymore on the updated operation platform,

    Do not buy this unit if you have the latest operation system software installed as it will not work. What a con.

    • Written by from Riga

    I have updated my iPad 2 to iOS 5.0 and now on iOS 5.1.1 it still doesn't work. Before the update it worked very good. I always see the same sentence:"This accessory is not supported by iPad". I have this problem for a long time but now I decided to write a review. Apple, please make the software update to solve the problem, it will be better to do it before iOS 6.

    Fantastic addition

    • Written by from SCUNTHORPE

    I was on holiday and completely frustrated by the fact that all my pics were on my camera and I wasn't able to see them on the HD screen of my new shiny iPad. After buying this simple and affordable kit I'm totally amazed by how easy it is to import the pictures from my phone. Just plug it in and go.

    Note: you can only import newly taken pics in the original camera format. It doesn't work if you copy pictures to an SD card and try to import them.
