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.

Works as described
Took less than 5 minutes to test. Used an iPad Air, RAW files from 5diii (regular JPEG would work too), and a San Disk extreme 16g Took less than 5 minutes to test. Used an iPad Air, RAW files from 5diii (regular JPEG would work too), and a San Disk extreme 16g card. Able to transfer raw files just fine. Some of my iPad editing apps would not open file. Used SnapSeed app 1st then save image to camera roll. From camera roll you can edit using any app because I believe Snapseed saves as JPEG. File resolution is adequate for the iPads retina screen. I'm only using this for social media. I've read the files are trimmed.
I only use 16g cards to reduce the chance to loose data.
Be aware if you have a 64g card this reader will not work. …
