    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!

    Does what it says

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    Excellent product - does exactly what it says and with great EASE ... couldn't be more pleased. Worked flawlessly first time out ... MUCH easier than working thru iPhoto. Took about two months to find an Apple store with this in stock, but worth the wait! Only wish one could use the usb port adapter to link up a multi-card reader (which I tried, but it wouldn't take a reading from it or it's compact card) Oh, well, can't have everything.

    Audio With Camera Connector

    • Written by from Parma

    I use the Camera Connector to plug in Blue Microphone's USB "Yeti" mic. Makes it a breeze to record CD quality sound on the iPad. I'm using the "FiRe" audio recording app. Results are superb from close up recording to full concert band.

    I love this kit

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I couldn't quite figure out how to work this the first try. I hooked up the camera and all the photos appeared on my iPad. But, when I disconnected, the photos were gone. Same thing happened with the card reader.

    Then, I realized that, up in the right hand corner of the iPad screen is a button for 'import'. Voila! There were all my photos, in my iPhoto album in a stack called 'last import'.

    Then, I took some of them to the Photo Pal app and, again, just as promised, excellent results.

    Great! Dunno why people don't read though!

    • Written by from Winter Park

    This works great - it seems like the bad reviews are all by people who can't read the simplest of texts. The overview for this product clearly states that iPhone 3G is not supported. If you buy this and have a 3G iPhone and then get mad that it doesn't work - you shouldn't give the product a bad review - you bought something without making sure it was what you needed.

    Apple can't write a review on your lack of wit. So don't write a bad review on a product you shouldn't have bought in the first place.

    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!!

    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!

    works with USB thumb drives

    • Written by from Montreal

    Create a folder on the USB thumb drive called DCIM, and anything you place there will be available in the Photos application - just like for a digital camera.

    Camera connection a must for professionals

    • Written by from Albuquerque

    We have been using the SD card reader on a France shoot for the last three weeks and it works without a hitch! What a hoot! We have been tweaking the images on the iPad with fellow shooters using larger professional cameras and have given them a run for their money! No more need for a computer overseas or anywhere else for that matter...All we need now is an app to transfer images onto a hard drive for archiving! A camera, this connector kit and your iPad is all the darkroom studio equipment you'll ever need in the field!

    Works Great!

    • Written by from Hillsboro

    Both adapters work great. I dabble with photography, so it's nice to get instant feed back when I'm out taking photos. There are also some decent photo editing apps available for minor tweaking on the go. This is definitely one of the accessories that has made my iPad a valuable tool for me.

    Also, as a bonus, my Yeti USB microphone works great with the USB adapter included in this kit. Get a decent voice recording app, plug your mic in, and start recording. My only gripe is that to listen to your recording through the built-in speakers, you have to unplug the USB adapter first. That could just be the app I'm using, though.

    10 minutes in and money well spent

    • Written by from Fort Mill

    This accessory really completes the iPad. If only it was built in.

    The card reader picked up the data off of a 2GB SD card from a Nikon Cool Pix P&S and I'm sure it will work for my DSLR as well.

    The USB port works with a lot of peripherals as stated in other reviews but I have wondered for four weeks if it would work with the one sitting in my desk as it slowly made it's way from Shenzen. Sure enough, when you plug a bar code wand into the USB port it says that it's not a supported device but that doesn't mean it doesn't work. It picked up the two bar codes on the kits packaging quickly and easily. Pretty slick. Now to find the application for it.

    Very satisfied.

    Works with my Sony Cyber-shot

    • Written by from Mississauga

    I just received the adapter today.
    I have an older Sony Cyber-shot 7MP camera (DSC-W7).

    1. plugged the USB adapter into the iPad
    2. plug the USB cable between the iPad and the camera
    3. Turned on the camera
    4. Turned on the iPad
    5. Voila!
    The Photos app automatically opened on the iPad and immediately showed the "Camera" section.

    Importing was easy!

    Note:
    I used an iPad app (Photo-sort) to transfer the photos from the iPad to a PC via WiFi.
    In the past, I usually connected the camera directly to the PC, but it would be nifty if there was a way to import pictures from the iPad *TO* the PC ... iTunes seems to only work in the other direction.

    Good product for someone with lots of SD card cameras! Plus the USB connector allows me to use keyboards for typing and a big plus is it allows the use of Harman Kardon Soundsticks speakers.

    Yes! iPad plays Video from Photos App

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Just got the CCK I ordered here at the Apple Store. Using my Canon PS G9 I was able to take the SD card and plug it into the iPad and Photos App did it's thing and loaded the pictures. I then shot about a minute of video using both standard & hi res. Photos app loaded the video. It allowed me to play the video full screen! I connected the iPad to my mac and copied video to iphoto. Opening the video and getting info, I see that the camera produced an .AVI file, with format details of: Apple OpenDML JPEG,1024x768. I am so jazzed! Now I am set for my trip to India next week with my iPad, CCK, and my Canon camera. WOW!
