    Doesn't Work with Nikon D300

    • Written by from Milton Keynes

    Like many other reviewers I'm very frustrated with this device. It will not recognise my Camera and allow connection to my iPad however, my camera connects succesfully to my iMac and Macbook therefore it's not a camera or compact flash card issue.

    If I put the card into a card reader instead of a direct camera connection, then connect with the device to my iPad, I get the message that the device 'uses to much power'.

    Like many others I bought this device to review my photos on my iPad at the end of a shoot but the device doesn't recognise my camera or card

    What a load of rubbish, when Apple gear is normally so superb.

    Junk

    • Written by from Morden

    I spent £25 for a piece of equipment that is not at all useful. It cannot see photographs from my Samsung pixon 12 phone which has a really good camera better than my Nikon, unlike the Airstash I got after this. Not engineered for general convenience. It's just a piece of plastic to me, and nobody I know wants it either when I tried to give it away. Don't waste your money.

    iPad camera adapter

    • Written by from Wakefield

    I love my apple products owning iMac, mac air and iPad 2 not to mention iPhone and numerous iPods. However the camera adapter for the iPad is verging on the illegal. It's not fit for purpose, it would appear from what I can gather the latest update has reduced the current available via the dock from 100 to just 20 milli amps. Which basically means it won't work with the majority of cameras. The only alternative is to use the SD card reader.

    Apple card reader for IPad 2

    • Written by from Blackpool

    I received my I pad as a present for my birthday in January 2012. I purchased the apple IPad connection kit today. My IPad knows it is an Apple kit, but there is no way I can get it to load from an SD card. The USB connection slot will not load either.

    I am getting error messages to state that there is not enough memory. My SD card holds 3 photos amounting to less than 1mg. To say I am confused and disappointed is putting it mildly

    I contacted Apple but they didn't know why and advised I should take to an Apple store. The nearest store is over 50 miles away. They did say the connection device will not work with Sony. But I tried to load pictures taken by my phone, which is a Samson. I read some of the comments and it seems there is a problem with the memory on IPad 2'. However the Jury is out and I am open to suggestions. If it will not work I will give the kit to my son who has an IPad 1.

    If I can find an answer to the problem, if somehow it is my fault, then I shall write another review and upgrade the rating. I gave it 1 star because the IPad did recognise the connection. If, there is a problem with latest upgrades to IPad 2 then, hopefully Apple will sort it out. However, I must give the IPad full marks for an outstanding piece of equipment, which has given me hours of very interesting pleasure.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Does not work

    • Written by from Seattle

    I have a first gen. iPad with latest OS (as of Feb. 2012). USB adapter did not work with Nikon D200 or Canon SD880 and SD adapter did not work with a 16GB Sandisk Ultra. Also both adapters didn't feel very securely connected to the iPad - had a "third party" feel.

    USB adaptor?

    • Written by from Blackmore

    The USB adaptor is a waste of time it does not work with files written from Sony cameras and does't work with files written Cannon cameras! however the SD card reader works fine.

    Camera Connection Kit

    • Written by from Helensburgh

    The USB connector will connect some cameras (but not a Canon EOS) to an Ipad2 but the SD card connector does not work at all. The I-store in Glasgow confirmed this is an operating system fault and "hoped" it might be resolved in a future update of the operating system

    From Good to Bad!

    • Written by from Lymington

    We purchased the connection kit specifically to be able to upload photos from our camera whilst on our annual skiing trip. Initially the kit worked well, in fact it was seamless transfer. However, prior to setting of on our hols I synchonised the Ipad 2, whereby an upate must have been delivered, rendering the kit useless. As per the other reviews, this needs a fix from Apple.

    Doesn't connect to my Canon SLR

    • Written by from Portland

    Rubbish really
    Unfortunately zero stars are not an option
    What more is there to say, other than it would be nice if apple published a list of compatable cameras

    A 'connection kit' that does not connect

    • Written by from Harlow

    What looks like a perfect solution for loading photos onto the i-pad, turns out to be a huge disappointment. When you insert either the USB or SD adaptor, you receive the message that the i-pad does not recognise the device. Reading the other reviews you realise that this is one beautifully designed Apple product that does not work universally. Will there be a version that works for all devices or will Apple be offering a refund, who knows. Unfortunately I bought mine in the States so cannot take it back to the store.

    Terrible - Does not work

    • Written by from George Green

    I bought this from Apple to load my photos onto my ipad but it does not work, Apple fail to tell you that it is not compatible with all cameras, what a waste of money. Very bad product from Apple, not happy at all.

    iPad kit does not work

    • Written by from Hull

    I received the iPad connection kit as a gift and was looking forward to transferring all my photo's.

    Neither the usb or sd card worked, and the ipad2, didn't even show any error message.

    Apple should not be allowed to sell these unless they work. there must be something in the 'sale of goods act' which coves this. Very dissapointing.

    Poor Effort Apple

    • Written by from Poole

    I was very excited when I bought this gadget from the Apple store. we have 2 iPad2's in the household and saw this device as perfect for our needs. We are flying to Thailand this weekend and saw this as the perfect solution to our photographic storage solutions. Just plug the SD cards from the camera or videocamera and upload the photos / video? Sounds brilliant. Reality is, it doesn't work. The whole point was to be able to upload and back up / store all our images and videos WITHOUT having to plug into a computer.I fail to understand how Apple have made such a simple task impossible. I get error messages when I plug in a USB stick, telling me that there is insufficient power. All I want to do is save my memories. I have invested over £1000 in Apple technology and to be honest, its flawed. Its making me start to rethink my faith.

    bad joke 2

    • Written by from grove

    Reading the Bad Joke review I got more info than over an hour onto apple tech support as to why my card reader worked fine on ipad 1 but will not work on ipad 2. Clearly apple have changed the output power required to use the device and now its useless. If a change can be made in next apple OS update I suggest apple go back to what works!. I used to be able to import files from a in car camera from race car and use if for training and coaching. It just does not work saying "device requires to much power" when on original ipad it worked just fine. Apple please fix this problem!
