    A Must Have For Photogs

    • Written by from BRIARCLIFF

    This little kit has become such an essential item for me that I recently got a second kit as a backup so I can keep one in my DSLR bag and have one in my purse to use with my iPhone 4. Shoot with the iPhone, use the USB connector to transfer your shots to the iPad, edit and tweak the shots with a good photo App, and you have the perfect portable studio / editing combo as well as a great little portfolio to show off your work. Seventh Heaven for any photographer!

    Mixed because of poorly documented limitation

    • Written by from Menlo Park

    I'd like to give this a good review but there is one glaring problem. This is promoted as a way to get photos from iPhone to iPad. However, you must dig through to support pages HT4101 to find that it does NOT work for the 3G. No error no nothing just doesn't work. Excuse me but the 3G is only one generation old and still being sold. Why is it not supported. At least make it very clear on purchase page and package that it ONLY works on 3GS

    Not Compatible to all cards

    • Written by from Elk Grove

    This device does not work with SD XC cards. Have to connect the camera to the Macbook Pro to download/edit files. I will be forced to use slower cards with less GB to use the device with ipad. Disappointing.

    Works Perfectly!

    • Written by from Kansas City

    After reading a lot of mixed reviews, I was even more confused than Einstein creating his theory of relativity. All bad reviews are actually not because of the product being faulty or its functionality being faulty rather the bad reviewers either have bad quality SD cards which iPad doesn't recognize or they have bad cameras which do not connect . I have tested a Transcend 32GB SD HC Class 10 card and a Toshiba 8GB SD HC Class 4 card, both of them worked perfectly. The camera I connected to the kit was a Canon 60D Digital SLR and what luck didn't give me any problems at all too. So to conclude the kit works as described in the store without any regrets I love the accessebility it offers on the go. Btw I tested the kit on an iPad 2nd generation so people who have written bad reviews about this kit might have an older iPad or an older software version. I suggest before rating anything people should at least check if their iPad isn't at fault. i would give it 6 stars if possible as I'm a professional photographer and this kit lowers the weight of my total baggage by around 40% and removes the need to carry a laptop everywhere when iPad is such appropriately sized.

    Does not work

    • Written by from Schnecksville

    I have tried the one connector to connect to the ipad 2 and then slip in the SD card. It says my card is damaged but when I plug the card into the computer, the pictures are just fine.

    I tried using the other connector to connect to the iPad 2 and then put in the san disk connector with disk card, it tells me that the device uses too much power.

    I tried using the usb cables that cane with my camera to hook into the iPad 2, again, nothing happens.

    I strike out in all cases. What a waste of time and money.

    No longer works under iOS 4.2

    • Written by from Crownsville

    This product worked fine with my Olympus and Nikon cameras as well as several thumb drives before the upgrade to iOS 4.2. Now everything results in “The connected USB device requires too much power". This makes it useless.

    does not work

    • Written by from Chattanooga

    lets face it this product does not work. You have about a 1 in 7 chance that your sd card will read. Just read the reviews, you will see. Apple, what are you doing with this product? why didn't you test it? saddens me you would slap your name on this piece of shat.

    Even worse than I expected

    • Written by from Woodford Green

    No official instructions and it turned out to be just another Apple control rip-off, overpriced and does not work; what's worse you don't know it won't work until you've paid for it because neither the box nor any Apple publication on the web tell you of its limitations. I bought it hoping to effortlessly transfer files to and from my iPad, of course this is not possible except in very specific circumstances. I'd be happy with it if I could just upload photos from my memory stick or camera, but this is not possible unless I create specific subdirectories and use a very low powered USB stick. Too much faffing around. The UI is bad enough with the iPad, despite what Apple believe, but the camera connection kit is possibly the worst consumer experience I've ever had. Is it too much to ask that I can use my iPad on the move to show my photos to friends or shall we continue to have to squint at the 2" display on my camera?

    Failed right out of the package

    • Written by from Ewa Beach

    USB Adapter did not recognize my SD cards UNTIL I moved the SD card's "LOCK" switch to "LOCKED". Only then did iPad display a message: "Card May Be Damaged". Tried it with multiple SD cards.

    CAMERA Adapter displayed this message: "Accessory not available, uses too much power". Huh? The camera battery was fully charged, my iPad was fully charged.

    I'm taking it back to my friendly Apple store in Honolulu.

    Don't spend your money on this!

    I've tried the Camera Connection Kit a couple of ways now.

    SD Card reader works great.

    USB/Camera cord adapter works great with iPhone.

    USB/Camera cord adapter also works great with my old 6-in-1 USB memory card reader, I've got an ancient digital camera that uses SmartMedia cards, camera works great and takes great pictures; I wanted to be able to plug the USB card reader into the iPad, no one at local Apple Store could tell me if it would work.

    Well, it does!

    I can now see taking my iPhone and iPad together as a pretty complete 'lightweight' computing option on trips, with the Connection Kit! Can take pictures and video with the iPhone 4, use it as 'Hotspot' and mail/compute with the iPad!

    SD Will Not Work!!

    • Written by from College Park

    Tried reseting,restarting ipad 2... I exchanged connection kit thinking it was defective.. Also bought a new SD card thinking that surely was the Problem!!! NOPE!!! Then I did my research.. Started reading REVIEWS... Guess What I Found OUT!! RESTRICTIONS RESTRICTIONS!!!
    APPLE GET A LIFE!! Restrictions are for FREE not PAID for items!! I Paid $699.99 for MY ipad 2 (which I Love very much)!! Then bought a $29.99 Connection Kit (which I Returned for a REFUND) that will not work because Some APPLE wants Restrictions!! All I want to do Is put MY STUFF on MY ipad 2! If desktops and laptop companies did the same thing they probably would probably restrict loading to ipads from itunes....It Works BOTH Ways!!! Let people buy your products and USE THEM...NOT BORROW THEM... People will buy even more extras...

    unapple !

    • Written by from perth

    Very strange apple!! I have the same problem that lots of others seem to have !
    My Ipad has never recognised either of the adapters,, even from new ! I have tried many different cards and two camera leads, and the best I have ever got was once it told me that the device drew too much power....
    what happened to ' we don't want to ship rubbish products...' this is a very poor product attempting to overcome a distinct oversight in the design of the ipad.

    Very limitated product

    • Written by from Hermosillo

    The SD reader doesn't work if you have an SD card with pictures organized in folders or with large flenames,
    Really only works if you put your pictures on a folder called DCIM and your filenames are 8.3 named (like DOS), Very bad experience.,Also the manuals and specifications doesn't say helpfuill information.

    With Usb kit i can't read memroy disk. ouch!!! and again, manualas and specifications don't help to get solutions they only have comercial and very limited information..

    Im disapointed for this limitations and for documentation.

    very useless

    • Written by from Plano

    I bought this thinking that I can transfer photos from my computer to my ipad via SD card more easily without going through itunes since it always require making extra folders and messing up my own organizational scheme. Like in the case of a previous reviewer, this dumb adapter only allows transfer of photos that is saved DIRECTLY from your camera, NOT your computer. Why make this restriction when it is completely UNNECESSARY! I have so many photos that I want to transfer to my ipad without messing with itunes. Thus, I am returning this product as soon as possible! DO NOT buy this product unless you're thinking of really just transferring photos straight from your camera, nothing else.

    A must have for iPad owners

    • Written by from BETHESDA

    This is a must if you intend to take your iPad along with your digital camera. The pictures transferred from my SD card into the iPad very fast and the user interface is nice.

    The USB connector did not work with my 3G iPhone. Not sure why but neither the iPhone nor the iPad recognized the other. Of course I changed the cable and made sure connections were tight. No luck. So, if you have a 3G iPhone, take a note of this issue.

    Finally, the only complaint I have about this product is the way it's packaged. The two connectors come in a little tiny box and inside a plastic envelop that is open from both ends. Just exactly where does Apple think we are going to store this little, easily misplaced connectors? And why not combine both of them in a single connector?
