    Waste of money

    • Written by from Fort Smith

    I received the kit in the mail. Hooked the USB card reader to my iPad. 3rd generation and received error message this device draws too much power. Tried several different brands of USB keys and still received same error message drawing too much power. This was a total waste of money! If you have to use the adapter with a powered USB hub then that is fine but apple should disclose that the iPad will not power a USB key and you must use a powered USB hub to make the kit work. I have several thousands pictures I wanted to transfer from a USB and now it seems I just wasted my money. Very disappointed. I spefically ordered this kit from apple to avoid cheap knock offs and still received a product that is not useable. This product should be removed from sale on the apple store.

    so disappointed

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Just bought a Nikon S9300 and the iPad Camera Connector Kit. If one of the two had to fail, I'd choose the connector kit, because it did. "Device requires too much power" or some such nonsense. As if I have to time for this. How do you sell a product that a customer can't use?

    Doesn't do anything

    • Written by from Matsudo

    Hoped to be able to import jpegs via sd card reader. All the literature says that iPad 2 "automatically opens photo app" and yet it doesn' t. In fact, nothing happens. I can't find the sd card nor the photos on it anywhere.

    Best Add-on

    This is an absolutely awesome addition to your luggage for those trips when you expect to be taking hundreds if not thousands of photos. SOOOO easy to use its fool proof.....

    Totally Dissapointed.

    • Written by from Saskatoon

    I tried using these out of the box, on my first gen ipad. Never once did my ipad open the photo app. It would not recognize my 2 Fuji cameras, or Flip video camera, Would not accept images off of a USB flash drive, saying the device "requires too much power", even on a 100% charge. I tried 2 separate SD cards. One got the response "may have corrupted files", and another that was perfectly functional showed no response at all. Unhappy with purchase.

    Doens't work at all

    • Written by from alkmaar

    I bought the connectioin kit and tried it with an SD card. It's fails with the message that the device is incompatible. With the SD in the camera then: it fails, it uses too much power. A usb thumb drive? It fails. a usb harddrive with it's own power? it fails, because the device uses too much power.
    Don't buy it, it is useless.

    Works great

    • Written by from Kansas City

    I purchased this product before a trip to Europe as a means to upload photos and send them as I go. I used the SD card adapter the whole time and it worked fantastic adding photos to my first gen iPad. The 1000+ photos were uploaded quickly and they look great. I did not use the USB connector but I am willing to bet it works just as well. Definitely recommend.

    Good device for photos

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    I purchased this kit before a trip to London/Paris. I decied to go without my usual laptop to download my pictures each day. Instead I took my iPad and this connector kit. The iPad, via the SD part of the kit, downloaded the images into my iPad 64G device without and modifications using the RAW format from my Nikon. When I did get home, I easily imported the photos into Apeture for editing, etc. Without this device I would have needed my laptop which I didn't want to lug around. I would recommend this device for this purpose alone.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit

    • Written by from Raymore

    I just received the Camera Connection Kit yesterday. I was, easily, able to transfer photos from a Canon G10 to my iPad. I then removed the SD card from the camera and directly connected the SD via the SD memory card connection device and, again, was able to transfer photos easily to my iPad.

    I then experimented with a USB connected, multi-format, memory card reader. I connected the memory card reader via the same USB cable that I used for the camera to iPad transfer and was able to read and transfer images from a "compact flash" memory card which I use on my Nikon D200 and D700 SLR cameras.

    Though I've not done it, yet, I plan to try to transfer photos and data files from a USB flash drive. I suspect that will work, also.

    Bottom line, I think this pair of devices will be quite useful. . . even beyond what Apple has advertised!

    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.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I almost didn't by this because of the reviews here. However I bought it and they work just fine. I have an Extreme 8gb Sandisk card that unloaded with no problems whatsoever. The other adapter worked fine as well. I highly recommend this product.

    Simple. Inexpensive. Easy to use. Convenient!

    • Written by from Canmore

    This works exactly as stated! Plug it in, insert either a Compact Flash or SD card (up to 32GB in size) and boom, you're images are viewable on the iPad. It's easy, it's inexpensive and it's extremely convenient. If you're a photographer on the go and clients require instant review of your images, this is what you need.

    Works sometimes

    • Written by from Klamath Falls

    Mine used to work before the ios5 upgrade. Now, always says USB device not supported. Sometimes when I go to iPhoto's the camera will show, other times not. If I power down it seems to help! Frustrating for sure.

    Photo transfer is a problem

    • Written by from Bangalore

    I just purchased ipad2 and Photo kit, which is difficult to use. If you take pictures on ipad2 it is great. Transfering from SDHC, XD or from memory sticks is problamatic..
    Furthermore when you take a new picture and want to add to an existing album, it is not enabled. The manual conceals more than it reveals re photo application. .

    It used to work

    • Written by from Kelty

    I have an original ipad, and I bought the camera connecton kit. It worked perfectly for a few months, but since I upgraded to ios 5.1 it now does nothing. It is not recognised at all - not even an error message. I tried plugging it into my iphone, in the hope that it might work there. It did not, but at least I got a message stating - this iphone does not support this device.

    Why won't the SD card connection kit work?

    • Written by from Swainsboro

    I love my I-PAD 2 in many ways. I have a Nikon D-5100 with an excellent high speed 16 GB SD card. Neither the SD card nor the camera connection works. I have a 64 GB wifi & 3G IPAD-2. The same SD kit works with my daughter's 32 GB IPAD 2. The AV connector works great with my IPAD. I don't think anything is wrong with my connector. When I plug in the SD card kit I notice that the card is recognized in settings, but the transfer screen does not come up. I think this is very poor engineering. I feel I am a slave to the poor engineering in the Itunes setup. Apple, can't you make this right?

    Lets state the obvious...

    • Written by from Halls

    I'm a huge Apple fan, with that said, why don't iPad users have the ability to plug a usb flash storage (thumb drive) into our iPads and transfer files? The only reason I can see is that Apple doesn't want to give up the ability to sell 3 different iPads based on storage size. Come on Apple, please get back to making devices that made your customers completely happy, not just a little happy. For this reason, I will only give 2 stars to this adapter set.

    Doesn't work with my camera

    • Written by from Alameda

    Well, when I say "my" camera, I mean "the camera I use". I shoot weekly videos for a local event, on an HD Canon camcorder. Traditionally, I'd bring the SD card home, pop it into my MacBook Pro, and go to town in iMovie. My main reason for buying the kit was to try doing my video editing on the iPad, but it seems like the format of the videos isn't recognized by the Camera Connection Kit. Big bummer.

    Works fine with my raw photos from the Nikon D80, and of course with my iPhone 4. So that's good. But yeah, I really wish I could get the camcorder's videos to offload onto the iPad 2.
