    Disappointed!

    • Written by from Buxton

    The card reader works well enough but not with any of my USB cards. They all produce the error message that they draw too much power. This means that only half the kit works and this should have been made clear by Apple in its sales literature, in which event I would not had made the purchase.

    Great but only if you have the right gear

    • Written by from Kenosha

    This was incredibly useful when I had an iPad 3rd gen running iOS 6. And a great value at $30 for both USB and SD adapters.

    But now I have an iPad Air running iOS 7. I tried each of these with a 30-pin to Lightning adapter. Neither works. I am forced to buy new, separate SD to lightning and USB to lightning adapters. Apple is not kind to its repeat customers.

    Works for my ipad 3 running IOS 6

    • Written by from Bixby

    This thing works flawlessly on my ipad 3. Where is the kit for the lightning connector that has been out FOR A YEAR!!!? I'm very disappointed to learn that this wont work if I update to IOS7 because at some point I will be forced to do so. Lots of disappointment with apple lately. ...

    First time I've ever been let down by Apple

    • Written by from Indian Harbour Beach

    The USB import connector will not work with my iPad2. I tried importing from my iPhone 4s and Nikon d7000 with their respective USB cords, and nothing. The SD card connector works, but that is all - thank goodness for that. Very sad that the USB connector doesn't work, and no help on the discussion boards either. :(

    Gets the job done

    • Written by from New Lebanon

    After uploading RAW pics to mac then editing, I had to export the edited .jpg files to the same exact folder, 102ND800, the camera uses to store the files on the memory card. I am using Nikon D800 with Sandisk Extreme Pro 8gb UHS-1. The ipad would not recognize the reader if it wasn't in the exact folder the camera writes too.

    does not work with newer SD cards.....

    • Written by from Long Beach

    well, I use this to connect directly via USB cable to my Nikon D600 which works just fine. But I prefer to use the SD card slot instead which does not work with my new 64 GB Sony Class 10 SDXC cards - what's up with that Apple?
    Older cards work fine (e.g. 8 GB Transcend Class 6 SDHC)

    Works, but not really

    • Written by from Richmond hill

    i've used this for a while now, and it was good, once you change a few settings

    my camera needs to set video format to MP4, with my sony nex3n could do, which allowed me to import videos. (default settings wouldn't allow me to import)

    also, importing photos in the photo app was easy, and clean. unfortunately, you cant view photos until you have imported them. thankfully, in the albums, it auto creates "last imported" and "all imported" which makes it SUPER easy to view imported files

    the BAD

    UHS-1 cards dont seem to work, (those new fast ones... i can understand the speed not being there, but the fact that it wont import or read the UHS-1 cards at all is sad...

    other thoughts
    dropbox wont auto uploaded imported files,
    google+ doesn't
    shoebox does,
    photostream does

    ALWAYS keep imported files. the chances are, it wont be auto backed up from ur ipad.
    back it up on ur desktop

    final thoughts
    Great, until i bought a 64gb ADATA class 10 UHS-1 card, and it didn't work... but it was on sale, and had a great price, didn't want to return it. but i feel like i have to use my class 4 sd card just cause i can view it easier on my ipad.

    Incompatible

    • Written by from Rome

    I own a Panasonic HDC-TM90. When I connected it to the iPad, a statement on the iPad says it uses too much power. The photos are imported, but not the video footage.

    Who to blame?

    • Written by from Friendswood

    Got a camera kit to read in files off my brand new Sony PJ380 camcorder. Works fine using USB connection and the internal 16 GB of flash. However, wanted to use my 64 Gbyte SDXC card. Sony did not like the format card was originally, so I reformatted in the camcorder. This changed the card to have a 64 gb ExFAT partion. Thereafter, neither the USB or SD card reader worked.Going to try multiple FAT partitions to see if I can get something to work.

    I figure Apple should support ExFAT on the iPad, but I suppose I could blame Sony...

    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.

    AMAZING PRODUCT

    • Written by from Baldwin Park

    I BOUGHT MY IPAD USED AND IT CAME WITH A BUCH OF GOODIES SUCH AS THE CAMERA KIT. THE CONNECTIONS WORK FINE THEY'RE AMAZING BUT,

    THE BUYERS DON'T REALIZE IS THAT THE SD CARD READER WILL ONLY WORK FOR CERTAIN CARDS. I HAVE NOT FOUND A CARD ADAPTER THAT WORKS FOR THE MICRO SD BUT, FOR A REGULAR SD CARD I KNOW THAT THE "PNY HS SD CARD" WORKS.

    THE USB ADAPTER WORKS FINE TOO BUT,

    IT DOESN'T WORK FOR PHONES OR CAMERAS THAT DRAW POWER FROM THE USB THAT CHARGE THE DEVICE AND ALSO THAT SOME USB STICKS DON'T WORK ALSO.

    THIS IS WHAT I WAS ABLE TO FIGURE OUT AFTER GOING THROUGH THE SAME PROBLEM AFTER ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. ONCE YOU FIND THE CORRECT ONES THAT ARE CONNECT TO YOUR ADAPTERS THE DEVICE WORKS GREAT. ITS JUST THE HASSLE OF FINDING IT THAT STINKS. LOL

    Will not work with lightning, even with 30 pin adapter.

    • Written by from Green Bay

    I'd give it 5 stars for its functionality on my iPad, but only penalize it for not being supported by the iPhone 5 even when using an adapter. Why Apple? Why? Love the products, but really hate being gauged on little cords and adapters.

    Works well but....

    • Written by from New York

    I take many photographs and when traveling, like to look at them on my iPad because it is better for review than my camera's display (iPad is obviously bigger) and have enjoyed that ability. I recently got an SDXC from SanDisk and I have not been able to use the device. I am not sure if it is a compatibility issue or my card that is causing the problem. The card works on my pc laptop and my iMac, and obviously on my camera. Has anyone else had problems with SDXC cards?

    Works fine -- if you can use the card reader one

    • Written by from Alexandria

    At first, I tried plugging my card reader into the smaller USB adaptor and got the "This device draws too much power" error. Then I tried inserting one of my SHDC cards (I use PNY Class 10s -- usually the 8 or 16 GBs) into the card plug-in adaptor and it works fine. I haven't had any file name issues as of yet. I actually prefer it this way because now I don't have to drag the card reader along, too. The other morning, I took some pics at the dog park. Later, I stopped at the car wash on the way to work. While I waited, I reviewed my photos and edited the ones I kept. You have to admit that's pretty cool. I think it will make me more likely to grab the camera and take random pictures here and there.

    My only complaint is that I would like the option to look at the full-sized image when deciding whether to import a picture. For this reason, I will still depend on the iMac and card reader for processing the complex import jobs. But for quick-and-dirty review/edit jobs -- especially while traveling -- this works pretty well.
