    Works for me

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    Loaded photos from the following cards/cameras:

    Sandisk 2GB SD - Lumix DMC-TZ3

    Sandisk Extreme III SD HC 8GB - Lumix FZ35

    Sandisk Extreme III SD HC 8GB 30 MB/s Edition - Nikon D90

    In all cases it showed all the photos on the card, let me choose which ones (or all) to import, and let me choose whether to delete the ones I imported.


    Simple - worked for me.

    Limited compatibility

    • Written by from Fairview

    Will not work with many card readers ("device needs too much power"). Will not work with Canon Digital Rebel XT ("device not supported"). Easy interface when it works, but it is too simple and too limited (cannot define rolls or albums). Good for moving photos from iPhone to iPad for better visibility.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Reading

    I never write reviews for things, so at least I now know how cross I need to be before I do so! I selected the more expensive Apple-branded product over the much cheaper versions, as I stupidly assumed it would be more likely to work.

    I've just wasted the past few hours of my busy life trying to get the SD attachment or the USB connector to work with anything. It doesn't. I've tried files and photos, different SD cards, the camera lead versus a USB stick, etc. etc. I wish I'd read one of these reviews before bothering, as by a strange coincidence I too am running the new OS.

    Very disappointed with you, Apple - I won't be buying any more of your expensive accessories. Would have picked 0 stars if that had been possible.

    camera connection kit very very disappointing tool

    • Written by from Emmen

    Absolutely wortless piece of equipment.


    I would really love to see my carefully edited pictures on the iPad so I placed some pictures on an SD card, card in iPad camera connection kit,..... nothing happens......
    Turns out, photo's have to be in a folder called DCIM, ok that I can do but the next restriction is that all photo files have to have exactly 8 characters aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarghhh
    I rename my pictures so they have meaningful names and the iPad will not read them !!!

    Next I tried putting photo's on an USB stick........iPad says it draws too much current !!!!

    Jesus, I expected this tool to help me get pictures on the iPad in a convenient way.

    Apple !, do something about this, this is not working at all. Not worth one star.

    I will send this very very poor an very disappointing product back.

    So, you've been warned.

    Best regards

    Works as advertised

    • Written by from Red Bank

    I was a little bit nervous after reading some of the reviews but it worked just as advertised. I was able to transfer pictures directly from two different cameras. I was also able to transfer pictures from my computer to an sd card and then directly into the iPad. I am satisfied that this product works just the way I expected.

    Not working with Canon EOS 300d

    • Written by from Sevenoaks

    So far not impressed with this purchase. whilst it reads cards from my Lumix DMC TZ7, when I connect it to my Canon EOS 300d it just states incompatible device. This happens even with the communication setting on the camera set to PTP.

    Works well and does what I need it to

    • Written by from Palm Coast

    I almost didn't purchase this product because of all the reviews. Then I thought, Apples doesn't tend to make stuff that doesn't work. For $30 I'll give it a try. To be clear, I don't use the SD Card adapter as my cameras are all CFs, so this review only applies to the camera connection.

    When I first connected my camera, I had to change the communication mode to PTP as I was getting "incompatible device" errors. Once I did that, BAM! It was great! Snap a shot - there it was. No problems at all. I was able to quickly import photos, edit them using any of the apps I have for that purpose and upload them wherever I wanted.

    The ONLY downside I found was the downsizing (which isn't a problem with the iPad, but with editing apps). If you have a camera that takes good sized photos, don't make the mistake of deleting your originals after importing. Once you edit them on your iPad they'll be downsized quite a bit so keep the originals on your card until you backup to your computer, just to be safe. :-) Love it!

    ipad 3 Sony memory stick

    • Written by from Naples

    If your trying to use a USB Sony memory stick adapter and inserting into the Apple USB camera adapter you will get error message the device uses to much power and can not be used don't knock yourself out it won't work, I have a Sony cyber shot if you want to down load your photos to iPad 3 connect the cable that comes with your Sony to the USB Apple adapter
    then to your camera ( power on camera) then plug the Apple adapter end to iPad 3, if you get an error go to the Sony menue (it may ask you to any way) and switch from mass storage to PTP then follow the prompt you should be fine after that.

    Doesnt allow you to create folder names, error importing

    • Written by from Fitzroy north

    Does not allow you to add the files to a specific folder you create. A problem when hoolking up my video camera, it thinks I am copying over the same files. It also seems to split the one set of files into mulltiple folders. Really needs some better software. It would not read the format of my .mp4 files (Sanyo Xacti) on the ipad.

    Power Problems

    • Written by from El Cerrito

    It's a shame that apple changed iOS to prevent delivering power to the devices, this caused incompatibilities with some memory cards and camera hardware!

    Not a user-friendly experience

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I have attempted to use this over the course of a year. My experience is that my camera has difficulty establishing a connection to the iPad. Typically, when I plug the camera (most recently a Sony Cybershot DSC TX10, but previously a different Cybershot) into this port, the iPad does NOT recognize anything at all. Typically I end up having to pull the memory card and insert it directly into the iPad.

    Part of the problem may be that I cannot charge either the camera or the iPad during the connection period because their charger ports are being used to make this connection. Nonetheless, that isn't a valid excuse for the process not to work. Essentially this problem reflects the limitations and design constraints of the iPad. Disappointing.

    Insufficiant Power

    • Written by from Adelaide

    I have a Sony Cybershot and originally this kit used to work fine and downloaded my photos onto the iPad not problem then all of a sudden it just stopped and now it gives me the insufficiant power message.

    Same kit, same memory card just stopped working. Thought it might have been the amount of data but no wont work with even one photo on the memory card.

    As it used to work I wonder if it is more a iPad software version problem.

    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.
