    Worked Once & Nothing After! DO NOT BOTHER!

    • Written by from Santee

    I was able to transfer 150 photos to my iPad3 using my 16GB SD Card from my Nikon D90. Worked like a dream ONCE!

    BUT...Ever since, the iPad will only read 5 photos out of 50 new photos! All are JPEGs just as before! All are from the same camera & same SD Card!

    I have erased & re-formatted the SD Card and reloaded the Photos...SAME RESULT!

    I have NEVER had this much BS factor with any other apple device!
    Run Fast - Run Far - From this device!

    PS the USB connector is functionally USELESS!

    Worked great with latest iPad (iPad 3) for us

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    Took hundreds of photos on our vacation and wanted to back up the photos from the SD card used in the camera. We didn't bring our laptops/Macbooks, only iPads. Found an Apple store and they hooked us up. I'd seen this Camera Connection kit but didn't know what it did. It read our Kingston SD card and we were able to load all of our photos onto the new iPad easily, no issues. On the 2nd use it asked if we wanted to skip the duplicates, so it only imported the new photos. So I suspect the reviews that say it doesn't work are perhaps SD card issues since it worked like a champ with our iPad , latest generation. The other adapter in the kit has a USB connection. So, if you have SD issues or don't want to remove it from the camera, use the USB cable from your camera to the adapter that plugs into the iPad. So great, when got home, plugged the iPad into the big screen TV and showed everyone out photos...easy peezy.

    USB adapter works great with iPad 3

    • Written by from Moffat

    Bought it and connected my digital camera to my iPad 3. Could not be more simple to download the pictures and videos from the camera. Software in iPad handles the transfer well. Does the job.

    Waste of money

    I do not know if I am doing something wrong but I've used 2different sd readers and none of them work. I try two different connection kit and still does not read my pictures. And the only reason they have a star is because I had to rate it

    Camera -SD Card connectors

    • Written by from Cranberry Township

    I have about 500 pictures I wanted to upload using the SD card connector.
    My iPad only reads 2, not the smallest not the largest.
    I have no clue why does not read the others. All are JPG but some were edited with Adobe
    I have change the files to an older SD after reading the comments that does not work with the newer ones. Same results.
    Would it be that the Adobe edit affected them and if so can something be done?

    It does not work properly on the new iPad (iPad 3)!

    It does not work properly on the new iPad (iPad 3)! I only worked once when I tried to plug-in and swinged it many times. But since then, it won't work anymore.

    As consumers move to use higher density/higher speed SDXC cards, Apple need to update this SD card reader adaptor for iPAD. Both the new iMAC and MacBook pro already support such capability. Why not iPAD???????

    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.

    Most pictures and minimal video support

    • Written by from Cornelius

    OK, I am happy with the devices ability to import pictures from a SD card. The annoying part is it is limited to MP4 and H264 video even though the iPad shoots High Definition. You'd think that if it shoots HD it'll import it too... No such luck. The adapter doesn't even see the HD video from my Sony camera.

    Next issue is the USB connector for the camera connection. You'd think that Sony was standard enough to conect, but when connected, the device 'instantly' says the camera takes too much power to connect. Excuse me, but the camera has it's own battery. Why would the iPad even care about that? Let the camera drive itself and just connect.

    The only real usable function is the SD JPEG import, unless you still shoot old 30p MP4 video... I don't, I only shoot HD.

    The rest is a waste...

    Would be great if it worked (Poor compatibility)

    I tried this on multiple devices with my ipad 3 and in each case got the error 'not enough power for this device'. Others have had this problem too.

    SD card reader works as stated

    • Written by from Rancho Cucamonga

    I've only tried the SD card reader as I haven't had the need to use the USB reader yet. I didn't have any problems with it, it works just fine. 1) plug in the attachment with SD card in it 2) when iPad is unlocked, photos pop up right away 3) choose import all or import photos you select by touching the photo 4) choose option to keep photos on card or delete 5) imports at a decent rate, (I've only done a few at a time so it's fast to me). Easy!

    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.

    Very Useful Accessory

    • Written by from Minneapolis

    I have used the adapter for the SD card and found it very useful during my month long trip to China last summer. It was great to instantly upload all of my photos to my iPad. Doing so gave me the ability to not only backup all of my photos in the event of a catastrophe, but i was able to edit my photos on my iPad before sharing with family and friends in the U.S. Since I used the Chronicle app to journal my trip, I was also able to insert my uploaded photos into my journal. The camera connection kit is a "must-have" for anyone who travels!

    I love this kit

    • Written by from OVIEDO

    I purchased this because I was going on a cruise and needed something to transer my pics and video into my iPad from my SLR. Well it worked exactly how I needed it to, video and all (using the SD card). Hooking the SLR into the USB would not work and I'm assuming it's becasue of the output. Anyway I ran into a problem gettng pictures off of my friends digital camera and onto my Mac (Mac didnt recognize camera), but after realizing the kit had a USB piece I tried it on my iPad and it worked flawlessly. Like one of the other reviewers I wish it were one piece because it is easy to forget about the other if your used to using one of the pieces, but can easlily be fixed by just keeping both in the same place (I keep both in my camera bag). Not really sure why there are so many bad reviews but I am a happy customer. I am using an iPad 2 and Lexar class 10 memory card.

    iPad only…

    This product do his job, on iPad, as said.
    But I hardly understand why this device is not compatible with iPhones.
    Is it related to power?

I have discovered it wioll not read the 64GB format SD cards. 32GB works fine, but I can not get any video files to trandfer no matter what size/format card I use.....Not at all what the specs say it will do....very misleading.
