    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.

    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.

    It works perfectly, from iPad 1 to iPad (2012)!

    • Written by from Brasília

    I got it when I had the 1st. iPad and it worked great! I even used it a couple of times connecting the iPhone 4 to the iPad and retrieved all the pictures in Camera Roll. Now with the New iPad (2012) I did the same and even connected my Nikon D80 and was able to get all the pictures in the SD card. It didn't matter if I plugged in the card or the camera itself. Amazing product, and with iPhoto for iPad I can even retouch the pics and send to clients right away!

    works

    • Written by from Orinda

    I used the SD card reader part to import RAW photos from my olympus camera. Worked instantly and the ipad3 had no trouble displaying the RAW photos, which I found pleasantly surprising. The screen shows the photos better than my computer because it is so hi-res.

    Performed as advertised.

    • Written by from Bourbon

    Just purchased for Nikon coolpix S8000. Hooked it up using USB cable. Immediately downloaded around 30 pictures. Am looking forward to trip to Italy in June without having to lug around laptop. $29 price seems about right.

    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.

    RAW Files, No Problem

    • Written by from Wentzville

    I bought this with reservation as the definition didn't clearly state how raw files were handled. CR2 (Canon RAW) images are imported extremely fast from my DSLR; And display immediately when complete. When editing in iPhoto, there is no need to convert to jpg; you edit the RAW file and then can email (at which time it is converted to jpg automagically).
    I would recommend this to any pro photographer who wants to shoot, then display at weddings or at family photo shoots.
    I love this product!!

    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.

    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.

    I Love This Product.

    • Written by from Plano

    I bought this over a year ago to transfer photos from my Nikon DSLR to my iPad 1 and it worked great. It's so small that it fits in a pocket on my camera strap! I love being able to view all my new photos on the larger screen without having to be attached to a computer or TV.

    Now I have an iPad 3 and it's even better! Much faster and with a lot better picture. I haven't used the USB adapter, but I've never had any problems with the SD reader.

    Issue with importing digital pixs with connector

    • Written by from Brentwood

    IMHO, memory cards with capacity larger than 2 gigabytes are problematic. Maybe the new iOS fixed that. Also the CF should not be used as external disk storage device with Macs or PCs prior to interfacing with iPad. iOS might get confused and refuse to import pixs. Other than that, it's indispensable especially when traveling without a laptop.

    Camera Connection Kit works great!

    • Written by from PLANO

    I was also worried about whether I should purchase this, due to the bad reviews, but after reading the post from "Balazs L" from Seattle, I decided to pull the trigger. I tested it on the Canon 20D (in Menu -> Communication -> PTP mode) and Canon PowerShot SD780 IS and the new iPad and it works flawlessly. Each camera was connected directly to the new iPad and I did not use a card reader. Great product and I will not be taking my Macbook Pro on vacation; just the cameras and the new iPad.

    It Just Works

    • Written by from Watauga

    I hesitated to buy this product because of a lot of negative reviews I read but it worked flawlessly. I have a new 3rd generation iPad updated to iOS 5.1. I also have a Canon Powershot G12 camera. I followed the instructions that came with the connection kit. I turned on the iPad and plugged in the mini USB device. I turned on the camera and set it to view the photos. I plugged my camera USB cable into the camera and then into the device. The photo app opened with "Camera" as one of the folders and thumbnails of the over 200 photos on my camera appeared within seconds. No drivers to download or software to install. It was quick and easy. I selected a few photos to import and in a few seconds I had high quality camera photos to show off on my iPad. This will be very useful on trips. I love the way Apple products just work!
