    Works perfectly with iPad3!

    • Written by from Towson

    Despite the somewhat mixed reviews here, I purchased one of these and it was pleased to find that it works just fine and dandy with my iPad3. First I connected the USB piece and connected my digicam - and boom - hundreds of pics came right through. I was impressed at the speed given the large image files I had. Then I tried again with an SD card, and boom again - the pics came flying through. This is uber-easy to use and it does what its advertised to do. I haven't tried any wacky uses or connecting other non-camera devices through the USB - I got it to load images - and that is exactly what it does, pure and simple.

    What a waste

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Thank You Apple for granting me the privilege of moving photos to my iPad. My android will connect to any computer and act like a portable hard rive. But this...THIS! This will let me move photos only. Wow. What a privilege. Can't move audio files to garage band. Can't move PDF files. Can't move anything but photos. It's genius. Now if it want to move audio files from my handheld recorder to my iPad, I have to go through my laptop. I guess I'll just cut out the middle man and do everything on my laptop. What a waste. Thank you for my $700 Facebook browser.

    Canon EOS connectivity with USB adapter in kit

    • Written by from Searcy

    If your Canon EOS camera is PictBridge capable it will send pictures to the iPad. Go to the camera's menu and then to communication. Press the set button and then switch from normal to PTC mode. Then turn off the camera and connect the USB cable between the camera and the iPad. Make sure your iPad is turned on and then turn the camera back on and watch your pictures appear on the iPad. This works just fine on my older Canon EOS 10D with firmware 2.0.1

    Doesn't work with new ipad

    • Written by from Terrace

    I bought the ipad 3 to use for traveling and posting photos from my camera to my blog while away. I had researched that a camera connector kit would make my new ipad able to do just that. It won't connect with my camera - just get an error message "too much power" - cannot connect. I tried it with a different camera and got the same error message. I am really disappointed. I would give this product a zero stars if I could - for use with the new ipad.

    Great device

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I bought this kit back when I got my iPad 1 on release day, and it's been incredibly useful, even downloading RAW files with no problems. I was surprised that it didn't work right away on my iPad3, but then I was trying to read a 64gb card on a 64gb device (saw another user noted same problem). My 16gb card reads with no problems, so I'm assuming there's a problem with potentially reading a device that has more info than your iPad has storage? I'm an apple user for almost 20 years now, so I have faith they will fix this in a future iOS update.

    As for complainers who whine about having to download the images before you can view them full-res, name one device on the planet that allows you to view images full-res without downloading the entire file first... Have realistic expectations, then you won't be disappointed so much.

    SLR to IPad2

    • Written by from port chester

    Ok folks,
    I was having the same issues as a lot of you. On my cannon 20D I was getting the USB doesn't support prompt and on my point and shoot nikon I was getting not enough power prompt when using USB. In the menu of the cannon there is a section in the tools section called communication. The factory setting is normal, change it to PTP. This made the connector work. I used the card reader connector for the nikon and it worked.

    Flip Video recorder won't work

    • Written by from Durham

    I bought this product expecting to be able to download video from my Flip video camera. No dice. I get an error message saying that the accessory (the Flip video) requires too much power, and therefore cannot be connected.

    Just what I wanted

    • Written by from Encinitas

    Must admit that I bought the camera connection kit with trepidation after reading a lot of the reviews. But it works perfectly for what I wanted....the ability to download photos right from the SD card from my Panasonic Lumix camera. It will be perfect for traveling. And connecting my husband's iPhone worked great, too. The only thing that didn't work was the micro card from my Blackberry. But that would have just been a bonus!

    LOVE IT!! My Nikon, iPhone and Sony cameras love it too... :-)

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    This is THE assessory to have if you love photography. Yes, there are apps that allow you to transfer from the iPhone and you can plug into your PC, but it's soooo easy and fast with the photo kit.

    I've loaded photos from my SD card from my Nikon D90. I've used a very small Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo USB reader and the USB connector from this kit to load my Cybershot photos, and I've used the USB connect with my iPhone. The iPad sorts the photos by Date which is GREAT. Having them on the iPad allows for very fun and easy viewing with family, and the ability to make your photos SOCIAL right away. Email, Facebook, Flickr.. edit, color, crop, shape, play with, etc.. I now feel like my photos LIVE and BREATH with new life on the iPad. I LOVE IT!!

    Wish it worked

    • Written by from Odenton

    Apparently these adapters are VERY particular about which devices can be connected. I tried two different brands of SD cards and nothing happens. I also tried the USB flash memory sticks I have on hand and get a message that the device cannot be used because it requires too much power. I wonder how many SD cards and memory sticks I'll have to buy before I find any that work...

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Laguna Niguel

    The USB connection is worthless because it will not supply power to the USB drive so it will not read it. The camera connection is worthless because it won't read the jpg files from a Canon G11 or 5D3. Apple thanks for nothing.

    Great Product But PLEASE UPDATE!!!!

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    Great product for the price. Had no issues connecting my Nikon D60 with the SD card reader adapter to my iPad2. Really helpful in eliminating the computer from the equation and making the iPad self-sufficient.

    APPLE: Please further eliminate the computer from the equation by adding an update that will allow the iPad to recognize an external hard drive/flash drive via the USB Adapter.

    That's it,

    bad move apple!

    • Written by from Ogden

    Picked this up to upload pictures to my ipad and when I connected it with the usb adapter, it came up with the message that it required too much power... I called the apple store before I bought this and asked specifically if there were any known problems with this adapter and was guaranteed that it would work... all I had to do was plug it in and it would upload my pictures. I am not happy with this and will be returning it to apple. What is frustrating is that I called up the apple store before I bought this and was given incorrect information. Why does apple even sell this when they know it won't work... bad move apple... very bad move!!

    Great to bring on vacation

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    With this camera connector kit, I no longer need to bring my laptop or buy extra SD cards when I go on vacation. I just unload the photos from my camera onto the IPad, and I'm ready to fill up my SD card again. I can later import my photos onto my computer at home from my iPad. I tried both the SD card reader and the USB connector, and both work great.

    BEWARE - videos copied from Canon won't work on iOS3.2

    • Written by from Toronto

    Was keen to get this adapter for our Spring Break trip, hoping to only take my iPad and cameras. JPEG and RAW from a Canon T2I worked OK, as did JPEG from a Canon SD1400. The iPad could copy video files in MOV format from both cameras - it took a long time (3minutes) for a test 100mb file to get copied across, but then wouldn't play the files. The iPad recognized the files as .MOV but would not play and displays a generic MOV icon. I'm running iOS3.2 on an original iPad. Bummed out that I now have to take a laptop on my trip to backup files from my camera.

    I am furious. Got stuck 100s of miles from home thinking I can view and email my camera's photos with my Apple reader. Boy am I surprised! Wish somebody would have told me. Steve Jobs would never have let this happen.
