With the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, it's easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad or iPad mini so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.
After you insert the SD card into the reader, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organizes them into albums. When you sync iPad or iPad mini to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer's photo library.
The Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader supports standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.

I have used this multiple times and have had no issue whatsoever with my iPad Air. Plug it in, go to "photos", and click "import" I have used this multiple times and have had no issue whatsoever with my iPad Air. Plug it in, go to "photos", and click "import" below. I can pull 1080p60 (yes, 60 fps) video or 720p120 from my GoPro Hero 3 and from my Canon SX700. It is excellent because I can then open up those videos in iMovie and make smooth slow-motion videos. I use SanDisk Ultra HD cards. I have yet to use a 64gb card due to some user reviews about having trouble with that, but I am going to get one and try it out here soon.
I was surprised at all the negative reviews. I am guessing some customers must have camcorders that use incompatible file formats. …

I use mine with a iPad Mini Retina and a 64gb SanDisk with no issues. I even move the entire DCIM folder from my cf cards to the SD card and am able to import images from my DSLR. The ONLY wish item I have is that this would work on the iPhone as well. Other than that no issues. …
