    Doesn't do what is says on the tin

    • Written by from Petersfield

    Don't waste your money on this connector kit as it doesn't operate as you would expect. Total waste of money, so much so that I use a Samsung Tab now and have given the iPad to my wife, who leaves all the techie stuff to me. Apple, you're a BIG disappointment!

    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.

    A waste of money

    • Written by from Colwyn Bay

    The adapter will download raw files from my Nikon with no problem. I can view the pictures on the ipad with no problems.

    However the problems arise when transferring the photographs to a PC for editing. They will only transfer as small TIFF files using a third party program. OK only for viewing photographs on the ipad after taking, but of no use to serious photographers.

    A waste of time and money.

    Importing video from Sony RX100 to iPad 4

    • Written by from Midhurst

    Have tried Apple's SD Card Reader and USB Camera Adaptor. Receive error messages using both with no luck at all in terms of importing video to my iPad. Apple seem bereft of advice to customers and I'm left wondering why spend all that money on an iPad when you can't use it to import video for uploading to sites like YouTube? It would be funny if it wasn't so frustrating. Does anyone have an answer?

    The best way to import photos

    • Written by from Helsinge

    Bought this product so I could import and upload photos from my Samsung NX when travelling, and it works perfectly !! I always import photos via SD-card and the import with the camera connector is even faster and easier than on the computer !
    I bought it although I had my concerns because of all the negative reviews, but I am positively surprised !
    There might be a problem with it, if you connect your camera and it demands the USB as a power source, but what is the problem with using your SD card ?

    Totally Useless

    • Written by from Snodland

    I have just tried to transfer my photos from my Samsung Camera to my IPad using the camera connection kit and recd a message advising that the accessory is not supported and that my camera uses too much power, thus I cannot transfer my photographs. What a total waste of money and even more disappointingly that I cannot save my photos to my IPad. Total disregard from Apple to their customers, totally outrageous, but yet they get away with it. How can I rate one star for an unusable product, it should be rated zero stars.

    Apple has lost the plot

    • Written by from Dullstroom

    I'm becomnig increasingly more frustrated with Apple as they don't consider their customers' needs. I've been using the camera kit for 2 years to backup my Canon EOS 7d RAW files. After the software upgrade the iPad will not copy the files from the camera. It displays the thumbnails but when I select Import All it appears to load but a red warning icon is displayed on each image, with no way to read the warning, yet the file does not download. Very annoying.

    Was perfect, now a waste of money

    • Written by from bedford

    I pretty much got my iPad for the ability to import images and video from my cameras using the camera connection kit whilst on the go. Since updating the software (thanks Apple), it now no longer works despite trying all the so called fixes available, and pretty much a blanket silence from Apple themselves on the matter, even though lots of people are reporting the issue.

    Come on Apple sort this out please. I've been a devoted Apple consumer since the mid 90's, but you are about to lose my custom.

    How to import any file into the iPad with the Camera Connection Kit (CCK)

    • Written by from WIRRAL

    Tried on my iPad 2 (iOS6.1) with both the USB and SD card adapters. Not all USB sticks work, my 4GB USB initiative one does.

    Plug your SD/USB into the PC.
    Zip the files you need together and rename the zip file something like ZIP_1234.pdf
    If its a single file, just rename it.

    Make a DCIM folder on your SD/USB and paste the zipped.pdf file there.

    Plug the CCK/SD/USB into your iPad and wait for the Photo app to start. Then import your PDF.

    Now to get the PDF out of the Photo import folder, you can use the

    Dropbox app, but you need wifi and to actually upload it to Dropbox first!

    However, free App Store app iTransfer by ComcSoft works.
    Select the ZIP_1234.pdf from the Photo Album/import folder.
    Click on it then use Open In to get it to the file manager of your choice.
    I use Files Pro. Once there, rename it to ZIP_1234.zip and then extract your files.
    If it was a single non-zipped file, rename it back to what it was originally.

    Works 100% with Sandisk 2GB Memory Card & Canon PowerShot A1200 Camera

    • Written by from Camberwell

    Just bought this from Apple Store in Regent Street, London. It did not work with a Micro SD Adaptor with 2GB of Micro SD Memory inside it, but this could of been the adaptor itself as it was quite old.

    I tried my Canon PowerShot A1200 digital camera's 2GB Memory Card in the Memory Kit and it worked straight away, as did my camera when I plugged it directly into the USB Kit. So overall I am satisfied, hence the 5 Star rating.

    Amazing!!

    • Written by from Birmingham

    This product is really good it lets me chose which photos i want on my ipad and I find the best way to do it is to take out the SD card and use that. The picture quality is awesome ever so clear and it only takes 2 seconds to complete one picture and the instructions are well organist and easily understandable but it is very straight forward anyway. I am very pleased with this camera connection kit and is well worth the money. !!

    When I plug this in to my iPad it says 'This accessory is not supported by iPad.' Incredibly frustrating since it is sold as an iPad accessory.

    Ok so I can download photos easily, so far so good but why can't I download any videos from my video camera. I am using the SD card but it says no pictures to import and I can't work out what I am doing wrong. I can download them to my lap top but not my i pad. Is it the video camera (Panasonic)
