    Great until iOS 7

    • Written by from London

    Used to be fantastic for viewing images on the go (read from SD card). A card full of images would read in seconds and indicate raw+jpeg in the photos app. Since upgrading to iOS 7(ipad 3) read speed has dropped by an order of magnitude or two and is effectively unusable with a card containing more than a few tens of images. I'm not sure if the problem occurs with jpegs only but if like me you like to shoot raw (+jpeg) you're likely to have the same problem. Not recommended until Apple (hopefully) fix the issue in iOS 7.1.

    takes too long to review large amounts of photos

    • Written by from London

    Works for a small number of photos (say 50 or less) but it takes too long to preview the thumbnails (before the import) so if youre travelling for a long period of time and want to import a selection of photos at a time (and don't want to wipe the photos from the sd card after import) then it takes longer and longer to review any new photos (as it has to load up each picture from the beginning of the card) as you add more pictures to your sd card every day.

    Would be really nice to view something larger than a thumbnail on the camera kit before importing. Not worth the money.

    :(

    • 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.

    Great Idea, but...

    • Written by from LONDON

    ...Apple forgot to implement iCloud Photo Stream support. At least that's what the lady from Apple Care just confirmed to me. Photos imported straight to the iPad will not become available on your other iCloud enabled devices. Frankly, if I have to then connect my camera (or iPad) to my Mac again to sync them across here too, it seems like it's easier just to import via iPhoto or Aperture and then sync across that way. This will be returned asap.

    Card reader doesn't work - USB works

    • Written by from VANTAA

    SD-card reader didn't work at all. USB-connector worked OK with Sony A-350 and Cannon Ixus 850.

    Amazing that so known brand sells two adapters iand only one is working. Perhaps this is the way to get double price.

    GET IT RIGHT APPLE!

    • Written by from stoke-on-trent

    I bought this camera connection kit so I could import videos from my camera to iMovie on my iPad 2. The videos are compatible, they show up in the photos app but when I go in iMovie they don't work! I rarely give low ratings especially on apple stuff but if you pay 25 quid for a piece of plastic you expect it to work as it should! Apple... Fix this please!

    It does work, but you cant review Pics before Importing

    • Written by from Wimbledon

    I bought this so that I could plug in SD cards and review pictures on my ipad. Unfortunately although it does show thumbnails of the images from the card, the only way to actually view a full size version is to import them first.

    This is a pain as you dont always want to import all images before seeing them full size and the image size can be quite large, quickly filling even a 64gb iPad up.

    If it showed the full size image without importing, like many other products on the market it would be a great bit of kit, as it stands it's not ideal.

    Ipad Camera Kit

    • Written by from Birmingham

    Just got mine after waiting 3 weeks (July 2010). Disappointed really. It will easily take photos off my Sony T100 but I can't get it to import through the SD card adaptor so it's off to the Apple store for Tech advice. Also the device will not import jpgs from a memory stick nor will it take jpgs from my Blackberry Storm Just says Device not supported (for Blackberry, SD Card and Memory Stick). Therefore a bit overpriced for this accessory IMHO.
