    Works just fine....

    • Written by from Greenford

    Bought this via the online store.... Does what it says imports via the sd card adapter and imports via the camera (Nikon D80) and that is with the Apple case installed that a previous user said there was not enough room for the adapter to go in!!!

    I think this is very overpriced for what it is but that's Apple for you....

    They come fitted with a small plastic protective cover over the plug to stop dirt getting into the contacts, don't loose them otherwise it might cost you a tenner to replace them knowing the cost of Apple spares ;-)

    A must have tool

    • Written by from Gosport

    The ipad camera connection kit was the reason I purchased an ipad!

    The camera connection kit is definitely a must have for all digital photographers! It’s easy to use and reasonably priced. In my mind this kit turns the ipad from a toy into a must have piece of photographic kit.

    A must for iPad users!

    • Written by from Armadale

    This is such a worthwhile outlay for your iPad. The way the iPad works with this makes photo management so easy! It lifts the iPad to another level but this is an understatement as the iPad and the camera connection kit perfectly complement each other.

    It massively increases the usability of the iPad.

    You are never going to find a better accessory for your iPad on cost/benefit ratio in my opinion!

    Great Piece of Kit

    • Written by from Birmingham

    I was almost put off buying this connector, as I have an Olympus U tough, and previous reviewer says it does not work with this camera. Well mine arrived yesterday, and it does work with my camera!
    Also transferred video clips from iPhone 4, to iPad, with great results.
    Worth the money.

    Does just what it says

    • Written by from London

    The camera connector kit struck me as a perfect companion for holidays or trips. Or – put another way – one more in the growing list of things I can now do with my iPad, where I previously would have needed my MacBook Pro. I can view material at high resolution, prune the ones I don’t want to keep, and have a ready-to-sync folder for when I get home.

    The kit comes with two adapters. Both fit into the docking port at the base of the iPad. They are made of a single piece of moulded plastic and feel well made. Each comes with a small pin protector to keep the USB connection protected when not in use. It fits securely enough that you wouldn’t worry about losing it in the bottom of the camera bag.

    The first connector takes SD cards. It’s pretty straightforward – load the card into the connector, and plug the connector into the docking port on the iPad. A couple of seconds later an import window appears, with thumbnails of all the photos on the card. You can select or deselect all or individual images for import, and optionally delete them from the card when done. The thumbnails update with tick marks as each is imported. Photos go into a ‘last imported’ and then into an ‘all imported’ album so it’s easy to keep them separate from your other pics.

    I tried cards from my old Fuji FinePix, my wife’s Kodak compact, and my Panasonic SD100 video camera and all photos imported fine.

    Worth pointing out that it didn’t import the video from the Panny; it’s in AVCHD format (.mts) which the iPad can’t read natively.

    The second connector gives you a standard USB cable port. Again, although a little slower than reading direct from the SD card, both the Kodak and Fuji imported fine via this method. I also imported from my Canon EOS 400 with no problems. On the EOS I had to switch the camera settings from PC Sync to PTP mode.

    Both parts are solid, neat, and just get on with what they’re designed for. The limitations, such as they are, are within the iPad photo/video handling itself. If these were major issues they could be resolved in future iOS versions. However, for my, and I suspect most peoples’ purposes, it’s £25 well spent.

    very good product

    • Written by from Burwell

    Got my hands on this after it fell of the back of a lorry on the A-14 along with an iPad. it's very quick to upload the pictures onto the device. That is all.
