    I tried this on my iPad air, it worked intermittently with one of my SD cards then not at all. It did not recognise the JPG.s on my Canon camera card or the card in my Sony camera, I also tried moving photos from my laptop to a different brand SD card this also did not work even after making a file structure on the card imitating a camera card.

    Not Worth a Star

    • Written by from BARROW-IN-FURNESS

    Absolute garbage. Doesn't recognise SD card is there. Not managed to transfer a single picture. Will have to connect camera to MacBook. Total waste of money. Happens too often. I'm done with Apple, and will switch back to PC when I next change. Didn't used to mind the extra cost associated with Apple when the quality was here, but it's not anymore. Take a look at half the rubbish on AppStore as well. Quality control has been reduced to zero.

    Great bit of kit

    • Written by from Seaham

    Was rather apprehensive when I read that more people said it didn't work than said it did....was brave and bought an original from an Apple store...fantastic bit of kit...loads instantly and then there's the option to chose which to import....carry it with the camera kit so can view my shots and more importantly make tweaks to the camera settings...recommend this ++++

    I was very hesitant about buying this after reading many reviews stating this does not work. I decided to take a chance. It works fine with my new ipad air and the pic transfers were instant. Just plug in and go. Some of these reviews mention plugging it into a camera.? If thats what you wish to achieve then it would not work. This is an SD card reader as far as I am aware. If it's supposed to do anything else then maybe it doesn't work. But it does read my SD card! That's all I can report,really :)

    Works with iOS7 fine

    • Written by from AMMANFORD

    I have ordered a couple of these off eBay and they claimed to be Genuine Apple. But none of them worked. However - the real deal did work - and although I think the price is a bit steep, I can now take my iPad with my camera and download (or is it upload) pics from the SD card, meaning I have an instant back up and large viewing / editing screen using the iPad.

    In reality I spent 2/3 of the price on cheaper ones that didn't work - should have known better. Hope this review saves you money.

    Works ok!

    • Written by from Cheadle Hulme

    I am not great with computers etc so after reading the other reviews on here I was concerned that it might not work. I was pleased to find that the lead worked perfectly! I just plugged it in and the card downloaded the pictures onto my ipad, I don't know if other people expect the lead to do more, but I only wanted to upload my photos so I am very happy.

    Great product

    • Written by from Nottingham

    Me and my dad bought this for our upcoming trip to India so we can back up our photos and so we tested it with our SD card and it works perfectly. It takes a while to load the photos if you have a lot on the card already but that's expected. This is a great idea and we cant wait to use it. We found that it works best with SD cards that have the DCIM folder which is created when our camera stores a photo to the card.

    Outrageous price

    • Written by from Stafford

    It's effectively double the price of the 30 pin version since you have to buy this and the USB version separately now which is somewhat annoying and it still doesn't work with the iPhone which is absolutely absurd! Some of us want to transfer our GoPro videos to our iPhones edit and upload while out in the field without our iPads. One day I may just give up on you apple and move to android! I'm very disappointed.

    Does what it says

    • Written by from Stony Stratoford

    This adapter does exactly, what it says on the tin. It imports photos (JPG or RAW) from SD card to iPad into the IMPORT folder of photo app. Did not try to import video.
    4 stars only, because it's missing some feedback, like LED showing wether or not the card is inserted correctly or not. Also, price is steep. 15 GBP would be plenty sufficient...

    It's going back

    • Written by from Wellington

    Exeter Apple Store today, bought Lightening to SD Card Reader - helpful assistant who assured us all we had to do was insert SD card into Card Reader into mini ipad and select photos we wanted to import. Followed instructions exactly. Zilch. Nothing. Clicked Photo icon, just got the range of photos that was already there.

    It’s going back. Had to give it one star to write this review - otherwise it be zero.

    Works like a boss.

    • Written by from Swansea

    I purchased this with the intention of transferring photos and videos from my camera to my iPad. Plugged in it and it all works, like a boss. Despite the fact £25 is a pretty steep price tag, it does what it says on the tin. Can't go wrong.

    Good product for small digital cameras, not for canon 400slr

    • Written by from braintree

    I can transfer all photos off my Panasonic lumix without a hitch. However, I cannot figure out how to get my scan disk ultra II 8gb onto my new ipad air. Judging from the pictures of the cables, the opening is not wide enough. What can Apple come up with? I now have to have my canon photos on my ipad 2! Not very happy with this!

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Droitwich

    Simply doesn't work, even when following all the instructions by Apple, it plugs in, is recognised, but not a single SD card will it read, and I've tried by Nikon camera's, Cannon cameras and Canon video camera, all with four different types of SD card. I've turned the iPad on and then off again, I've even done a little dance to the gods of all things electronic.

    What a disappointment.

    Sd images to iPad in 5 seconds

    • Written by from Hexham

    Really good product, put in my SD card from canon 1100d and photos come up in 5 secs,
    Then it gives you the option to import.

    10/10 well worth the money

    Not compatible with iPhones

    • Written by from london

    Bought this from the Apple Store today. Get home to try it with my iPhone and it's not compatible.

    Fair enough, I'm looking to buy an iPad Air anyway, but at least you could say on the packaging that it's only for iPad? Or your "Genius" staff could of let me know? Not that it would work with the iPad Air by the sounds of the other reviews on here...

    I can't help feel like Apple is losing touch with things like this, their devices cost a lot of money, they should pretty much be able to deal with whatever will plug into them.
