    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!

    Great product

    I purchased this product from a bestbuy and it worked flawlessly. Tried both attachments with my Canon powershot A2000 iS and everything loaded right up on my iPad2. Including videos I shot with my camera. Great product.

    Don't believe the guy who said it doesn't work with iPad 1 - it does!

    • Written by from Stoneham

    I bought the camera connector kit as soon as it was available for my iPad 1, and it worked perfectly as I spent 3 weeks in 2010 traveling from Rome to deep Sicily and back with my D300. I didn't trust it was storing files as NEFs, but it was - and with Photogene, I was editing and emailing back great images. Now I have an iPad 3 and a Nikon D7000, and it does fabulous job of transferring both NEF and MOV videos to my new marvel.

    Works perfectly with SONY DSC-HX9V

    • Written by from Bangalore

    Both accessories work as described by Apple. I was able to transfer photos via the card reader and by directly plugging the camera USB cable. If the camera power is not switched on, you get "too much power consumption" error. However, everything turns to normal the moment camera power is switched on. Thanks Apple!!

    works great with Canon XSi

    • Written by from San Francisco

    I am using this with a 3rd generation iPad and my Canon EOS Rebel XSi, connected via USB. It works great! My SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards also work great in the card reader.

    I shoot RAW photos, and I use my iPad to backup, review and select images. When I return home, I download the images from my iPad to my Mac for further editing. This all works great, the images transfer fine, and there is no loss of quality in the transfer.

    The transfer speed from camera to iPad seems slightly slower than from camera to Mac, but it is very acceptable.

    The higher resolution display on the 3rd generation iPad makes it perfect for previewing photos, and this kit makes it easy to do so. Highly recommended!

    Simple. Inexpensive. Easy to use. Convenient!

    • Written by from Canmore

    This works exactly as stated! Plug it in, insert either a Compact Flash or SD card (up to 32GB in size) and boom, you're images are viewable on the iPad. It's easy, it's inexpensive and it's extremely convenient. If you're a photographer on the go and clients require instant review of your images, this is what you need.

    Canon EOS ( Rebel ) T1i / T2i

    • Written by from Windham

    I didnt see this anywhere so i thought i would let Canon T1i owners know the USB works well and the video importer is quick. This lets you hookup and - import and play video quickly for people at events and right-now sharing off the iPad 2 to Airplay on APPLE TV. Hence event photographers can shoot and share in moments out to big screens with the iPad 2 and a Canon T1 / T2 - fix them up in iphoto and slideshow it off the ipad while you walkabout and shoot more.

    Your photo/Video will be in a new Last Import folder... so the Photo Stream delete problem is not there and its quick to load/decide/delete as a result. Hence , i can carry the AppleTV and ipad in my gigbag and go live/vjmix the event with no help or second man required. Card swap works too. No downside. iPhone4s is almost automated fast also.

    Be sure to set your camera to USB Connect - PTP or PictBridge

    • Written by from Ottawa

    Having read a lot of reviews here, I was a little nervous about buying this item, but I live pretty close to an Apple store so it wouldn't have been a big deal had I needed to return it. I actually intended to try it right in the store so I could return it immediately if need be, but stupidly left my camera cable at home (duh). I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-T9, which uses a Memory Stick Pro Duo card, and thus needs to connect via USB. The Apple sales guy was certain that the kit would work with my particular camera, so I bought the kit and headed home.

    I read the (skimpy) brochure, then plugged all the bits together -- and got a message that my device wasn't supported. I pulled everything apart, put it all together again, same thing. Had the sales guy not been so insistent that it WOULD work with a Sony Cybershot, I might have returned it immediately.

    BUT - sat with camera in hand for a minute, cable still plugged in, and started exploring options on the camera. I did already have the switch correctly pushed over to the setting where it needs to be in order to transfer pix to a computer. I hit the Menu button, and was given the choice of USB Connect or Folder. I selected USB Connect. I then was given the choice of PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, or Auto.

    Given that the little brochure said this item works with cameras that support Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), it seemed like a no-brainer to select PTP. As soon as I did that -- everything woke up, and thumbnails of all my photos started appearing on my iPad.

    Mindful of folks who said their connection kit worked once but not subsequently, I've hooked it up and unhooked it a few times. As long as I have my camera set to USB Connect - PTP, my iPad recognizes the camera, without fail.

    The other options for USB Connect on my camera are PictBridge, Mass Storage, and Auto. Auto and Mass Storage result in an error message on the iPad saying the device isn't supported. BUT - Everything works perfectly when I set the camera to PictBridge or PTP.

    I read a bunch of the most recent review of this kit and didn't see any mention of this kind of tweak to the camera settings as a solution. I'm willing to bet that many users who are getting the unsupported device error would find their problem solved if they checked their camera settings, as I did.

    Supports CF Card Based Cameras

    • Written by from Ashland

    Normally I'm not a reviewer, but I noticed a review containing incorrect information and was hoping to help if I could. I have multiple cameras, two of which are high/er end Nikon and Canon DSLR's. Both store images on CF (Compact Flash) cards. I have never had any problem using this camera connection kit with my iPad, because both cameras are also equipped with USB interfaces and came with the cables that connect those interfaces to USB ports. Using those cables and the USB interface provided with this kit I can plug my camera directly into my iPad and transfer photos without removing the CF cards from my cameras; works like a charm. Obviously double check your own camera before taking anyone's word, but USB interfaces are fairly standard on all camera models so you shouldn't have any issues with this kit regardless of what type of memory card your camera uses. To be honest I rarely use the SD card interface option, but that's more my preference to leave the smaller memory card in its respective camera so I can't lose it. Bottom line, I would and more than likely will purchase this kit again.

    Works Great Does What it Says

    • Written by from Cape Coral

    Using it on iPad 2G with FW 5.0.1, and Canon EOS Rebel T3i FW 1.0.1 . I did not have to change any settings, it was a direct plug and play, works flawlessly uploaded a 20 second HD Video 1080p clip and 300 plus Jpeg Fine images in 20 minutes using 32GB HCHD Transcend card directly from the T3i. Could not be happier my father in law was impressed, he thinks I am some sort of genius now !

    Great For Photography!

    • Written by from Reno

    I love this adapter! It's very useful during photo shoots both in the studio and on location and I dont need to carry my laptop to the shoots. I shoot in RAW format and my iPad is still able to import the photos and I can review the shots with the models, staff, crew members with ease.

    I'm also able to text the photos to staff members or clients when im out scouting for a location. I can definitely take advantage of photo apps without having to download my photos into the computer first then uploading them into my iPad.

    This is definitely a useful tool to add to your camera bag.

    As a student on limited budget, I spent my hard earned financial aid on this to help with my PHOTO class. I love the concept...But in order to see the pics in the AWESOME screen, u have to IMPORT them.I would like to just VIEW them on the screen WITHOUT having to import them.
    They take WAY too much room to import all.
    Or maybe someone has an "Quick-view" app where I can click on the "RAW" pic, and it enlarges it. So I can enjoy the BEAUTIFUL screen....

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Windsor

    I have had the camera connection kit for about one and half years. It works with fine. It either imports from the SD card directly when the card is still installed in the camera using the USB Interface or the SD card can be removed and used with the SD Card Reader connection. If you take a photo without a SD card in the camera, but the camera has internal memory – the photos will download into the iPad using the USB Interface. The USB Interface cannot be connected and a photo taken with the camera at the same time (at least with my camera). Also my camera has Wi-Fi connection, but the iPad does not recognize it.
