    SDXC Cards

    • Written by from San Jose

    Using the SDXC card directly in this device did not work for me (exFAT format) but using it through my camera with the camera set to MTP (or PTP) mode and it worked like a champ. Using the standard storage mode did NOT work on my Olympus OM-D M-5.

    Formatting with exFAT is for high capacity cards like mine, 64GB and for speed. Makes no sense to use SDXC with FAT.

    Does not work with my new equipment

    • Written by from Saginaw

    I have the new GoPro Hero Black HD camera with a top of the line Ultra 64GB Micro SD XC and it says "Cannot read the connected storage media". I found an old old 1GB SD card in the bottom of a junk drawer, plugged it in and it works great! So from my experience it only works with old technology, not new technology. My little backup drive and my GoPro it says "The attached accessory uses too much power". So I can old use it if I have old equipment I suppose. I want a refund as its useless for me.

    Useless with modern SDs

    • Written by from Saddle Brook

    Since modern SDXC cards come formatted in ExFAT, this whole kit becomes completely useless: you can't connect a camera via USB, because it (the camera) also gets charged via USB, so iPad will simply disable the port altogether ("Accessory draws too much power" or something to that effect), and you can't plug the SDXC directly, because iPad apparently can't read ExFAT formatted drives.

    ExFAT is the default file system for SDXC for its higher performance features and larger maximum file size supported than the older FAT16 or even FAT32. New HD cameras can't work properly with flash drives formatted in FAT32 (example - GoPro Hero3 Black Edition with ProTune on, or at super-HD resolutions, like 2.7k or 4k), so you have to use ExFAT... Which makes it impossible to preview the footage on an iPad, using this kit.

    Works very well

    • Written by from Moorhead

    I purchased the camera connection kit for my iPad 2 and couldn't be more pleased. I took several test photos with my T3i, plugged the SD card into the adapter and into the iPad. It was immediately recognized, brought up the photos and gave options for importing or deleting. Once imported I could delete the photos from the card and it was ready to go back in the camera. This couldn't have been easier. It does exactly what I expected it to do.
    I haven't tried the USB adapter yet but that wasn't crucial for my needs. If that works well it will just be an added plus.

    iPad & Contour Roam 2

    So easy to use, worked first time, import nice and easy, options to delete from Camera once imported. Only tried 720HD @ 50 fps, but this is the most common setting for action. Retina display is perfect and watching on the TV using Apple TV is great for family viewing. Tip, keep recordings short or edit first and post straight to Facebook.

    Very limited

    • Written by from Mechelen

    Only works with a very limited number of products, even has problems identifying apple products. Micro sd adapters for example will not be recognised by the sd plug, most USB devices will also be unable to connect including apple products. None of my USB devices works with the USB plug. Ipad 3rd generation crashes or freezes for long periods while using any of these two devices. I find this another example of apples demise and out of touch with the wide range of products consumers use these days.

    Not working with my Canon 350D nor my Olympus TG 620...

    • Written by from Barcelona

    If I connect my Canon 350 to my iPad (3rd Gen, iOS 6.1) I got "device not supported".

    If I connect my Olympus TG 620 (purchased today) I got "device uses too much power".

    How comes? Am I doing anything wrong?

    If I connect my iPhone 5, it works.

    If I connect the SD card from my Olympus, it works. Cannot connect the Canon 350 card, as it uses Compact Flash.

    Please Apple fix this thing!

    Works fine uploading to my iPad; but camera no longer recognizes it.

    • Written by from Temple Hills

    I bought the adapter because I travel a lot. I didn't like waiting until I got home to download my pictures from my camera. My laptop is too heavy to lug around while taking pictures so I liked the fact that I could lighten my load with my iPad. The trouble came when I put the SD card back in my camera to take more pictures. My camera would no longer recognize the card. It also would not allow me to re-format it either. Essentially my SD card is now useless.

    Uh Really?

    • Written by from Tariffville

    When I load pictures from the SD card that has been in the camera it works, but when I upload other photos to the SD card from my computer to transfer them it doesn't work. The same camera, same tag, same SD card. I was under the impression this would make uploading photos easier than syncing to iTunes. Not! Oh.. and the only idiot is one who answers a question without understanding the question first.

    I loooove the camera connection kit! It's so fast, and easy to use. I love putting my photos on my iPad instead of having to load them on my laptop. Once your photos on on your iPad, it makes it easy to post to Facebook or share with friends.

    The most upredictable device I have seen.

    • Written by from Milpitas

    Well I thought I can put my jpg's on my SD card and then I can import them to my ipad using the adaptor nice and easy. What's wrong with that thought?
    Most weird: If I use an SD card that I have from one of my cameras then it seemed to read the files in ok. If I take the same SD and then I put some other jpgs then the ipad does not see those jpg. Sometimes it will import 3 out 30 some other times it will do nothing. I can read and write the very same card with the computer.. I even tried to leave the same directory structure the camera creates..
    I think now apple started looking like windows. You do the same thing and you get different results every time.

    Works perfectly with EOS 7D & 5D MKII

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I plugged the USB adapter into my iPad2 (iOS 6.01), connected the USB cable and switched on my 7D. Almost immediately a preview of everything on the card popped up. I picked out what I wanted to transfer and it just worked! Repeated the same with my 5D2 with the same excellent results. Once onboard I could view, edit, email or upload to FB, etc. Wish there was a CF card reader for pro cameras but the wired connection works fine.

    What a great device for travel and uploading images in the field or around town. I've read so many bad reviews I almost didn't buy this device but decided to give it a go, and I'm really glad I did. I assume Apple fixed earlier problems as the Camera Connection Kit just works: no special settings, delays or messin' around. I wish it worked with an iPhone as that sure would be handy for quick uploads on the run but I can settle for my iPad.

    Tried plugging my Canon eos rebel directly into the iPad 3 using the kit. Simply states USB device not supported. The camera uses cf cards so this is a useless product.

    Doesn't work

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    Both my iPad min and my latest-gen iPad 4 complain that this is "not supported by this device". Both completely up to date with the latest iOS version.
    Why is this device sold with a picture of an iPad on the box when it is not suitable for purpose? Very poor Apple. "It just works"? No.
