    Very convenient bit of kit

    • Written by from Cardiff

    And it works fine with my iPad and Canon D550, whether I use the card reader or the USB connector....

    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.

    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.

    Camera USB Dock OK

    • Written by from THATCHAM

    I wasn't sure about this purchase after reading so many reviews stating that the camera USB interface didn't work on iPad2's. Why pay for something if only 50% of the product works?
    Well, all I can say is it must be dependant on the camera your using, as it worked straight out the box for me (Panasonic Lumix GS3 and Canon G11) Perhaps its some of the older cameras that don't work?
    My local store (Basingstoke UK) also made it clear if it didn't work with my camera I could return it for a full refund.
    If anyone is unsure if their camera will work, take your camera along to the store and try before you buy :-)

    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!

    Simply works

    • Written by from Stirling

    Was put off a bit by some of the negative reviews of this product on here, however decided to give it a go on the grounds that if it did not work it could live with some of the other useless stuff I have bought over the years in the junk drawer.

    CCK arrived today pluged my fujifilm hs20exr in and off it went, worked a treat, tried the cannon eos next again worked like it should after that I tried a small Samsung compact flawless import.

    A very useful addition to my iPad accessories, well done Apple.

    I did not know this was available when I first got my iPad and was disappointed there was no easy way to upload my pictures.
    When I found out this was available I was over the moon and I still am. It is fantastic super easy and quick to use. Thanks Apple.

    ipad 2 camera connection kit

    • Written by from Battle

    Read the reviews and although some weren't good thought I would take a chance as the kit seemed to be exactly what I needed. It arrived quickly and works like a dream. I used it with my SD card from my Canon SLR and I would recommend it, I think it is compact and does what it says it does, its perfect if you travel a lot. I would give it 5 stars more if it were possible.

    Imports images no problem - 1* review by MM is not the whole story

    • Written by from Huntingdon

    I have a iPad 2 with OS5, the camera connection kit works fine with my collection of ageing Canons, Kodaks, and Nikons.

    The problem MM reports is only an issue if your camera insists on being powered by the PC when downloading images. Most cameras can be set to do this and thereby save their own battery charge, but most can also be set to not allow this to occur and hence should work fine.

    MM may have one of the few cameras that don't give the user the option, but this will be a very small minority in my experience. So buy with confidence, and if you are one of the unluky few the Apple 40 day return garantee will take care of you (when you by direct from them).

    PS I'm not a Apple agent or even a big fan, just a very pleased user who has found the iPad a very useful way to review his images after a shoot.

    A bit disappointed...

    • Written by from London

    ...that you do not seem to be able to view photos full frame before importing. This would be really useful as one could then leave the ones to be kept on the card without necessarily importing them. This is important if you are shooting RAW because the files are so large that they are better left on the card. It would be really be helpful to view shots full frame and delete the poor ones. It is very often difficult to do this on the camera.
