    My iPad 3rd gen will not even recognize the sd card reader. Tried several times with multiple types of file formats. Hope this can be fixed with a software update. What happen to "it just works" ?

    Works great!!!

    This product just as advertised. I have also used the USB adapter to hook up a small USB audio mixer and record straight into garage band.

    misinformed

    • Written by from Weston

    I bought this from Target a couple of weeks ago and just got around to using it. I was under the impression from Target, Best Buy, and Walmart that this product would work if I plugged it straight into my iPhone 4s (without an iPad). I wanted a way to put pictures on my iPhone easier (without a computer or tablet) and was told by employees at all stores that this would work for what I was wanting. Well they were wrong. iPad is the only one that supports the plug ins, then you can plug your iPhone or camera into that. I was not told any of this and got my hopes up for nothing :( I will be returning it because it did not serve its purpose for me.

    Just an idea for Apple, please inform all retailers (online and instore) of what your products will/won't do. Also, it would be awesome if you did make one of these camera connection kits for the iPhone 4/4s (and previous models) or make this one compatible with the iPhone without an iPad. Just an idea.. Hope this helps anyone else who may be mislead by what is stated on other retailers websites or what they are told instore.

    USB & Nikon SLR - works great

    • Written by from Tucson

    I was a bit concerned about using the USB connector to the iPad, based on previous reviews. Works great with my Nikon SLR, fast, great interface. Glad to have the card reader as a back up, but I don't like pulling the card.

    Canon EOS connectivity with USB adapter in kit

    • Written by from Searcy

    If your Canon EOS camera is PictBridge capable it will send pictures to the iPad. Go to the camera's menu and then to communication. Press the set button and then switch from normal to PTC mode. Then turn off the camera and connect the USB cable between the camera and the iPad. Make sure your iPad is turned on and then turn the camera back on and watch your pictures appear on the iPad. This works just fine on my older Canon EOS 10D with firmware 2.0.1

    Upload only, not for viewing

    • Written by from Espoo

    Connecting an SD card will show a preview of the pictures on the card. Unfortunately there is no way to view the pictures in full screen without importing the pics first. Would be useful to view without importing. A view feature would increase the rating to 4stars.

    Havn't used the usb adapter for anything so the review is for the sd adapter only.

    Excellent for what it was designed for

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    This is NOT a sneaky way to add a USB port. USB devices need power, which a computer USB port provides. The iPad 3 sends such a minuscule amount of power to the port that it can only work reading a SD card in the card reader. A USB card reader plugged into the USB port won't work because it takes too much power. The SD card reader works w/ SD, SDHC, miniSD & microSD w/ adapters, & MMC. It won't work w/ SDXC. It worked perfectly with my 16 GB speed rated 10 SDHC card. Cameras that work w/ the USB camera connector are digital cameras that support Pictbridge (aka Picture Transfer Protocol or PTP) & "Mass Storage Device" protocol. If your camera can plug directly into a Pictbridge enabled printer & can print directly from the camera w/out going thru a computer, it should work with this device. Think of the iPad as a Pictbridge printer, not a computer. If your pictures do not appear by simply plugging in your camera, you may need to set up your camera the same way you would to print directly from your camera. There is a nice article on Apple.com's support page that gives other tips on how to get this to work w/ your camera. My Nikon Coolpix camera transferred photos perfectly by just plugging the camera into the port. If you don't have a Pictbridge camera, or use one of the supported cards, you probably cannot use this accessory. You are left to transfer your photos to a computer and then transfer to the iPad (via cloud or iTunes sync). I tried using my externally powered photo storage device (which reads every kind of camera card) in the USB camera port and got the "requires too much power" message, even though the photo storage device had a fully charged battery & was plugged into an electric outlet.

    Does not support Canon S40

    I get error message "usb device not supported" when I connect my Canon S40 digital camera, and memory card is too large for card reader. Anyone aware of software that will support this camera on IPad 3?

    Device not supported when connected to my Canon camera. When connected to my digital memory card reader device says it takes too much time. Was really hoping to use this with my IPad. Not surprised that it doesn't work.

    Error message 'device using too much power'

    • Written by from Weymouth

    I am trying to connect a Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo card reader and the iPad is telling me the device uses too much power. How is this possible... Returning the device today since connecting other devices is not possible either.

    Works with my Canon Rebel EOS

    • Written by from Chapel Hill

    I read other reviews from people who could not get the camera connection kit to work with their Canon Rebel. Initially I had the same problem: after connecting my camera to the iPad using a Canon USB device and the kit, the message I got was "USB connection not supported," or some such thing. Of course, the other item in the camera connection kit, designed to enable you to download photos directly from the card, does not accommodate the larger card that the Rebel uses. I was ready to return it to the Apple Store when I decided to try removing the card from my camera, plugging it into the card reader I use to download photos onto my iMac, plugging the card reader into the camera connection kit, and...ta-da! It works! So don't take it back until you give this a try. This seems the perfect solution to the problem of backing up and viewing photos while traveling and avoiding the hassle of lugging a laptop everywhere!

    Very useful

    • Written by from St Albert

    I use this to backup photos from my D300 and AW100 and also videos from the AW100. Both parts of the kit work very well. I have the 64 gig ipad2 so there is lots of storage available even if I also have movies on the iPad.

    I take the camera and HDMI connectors on any trip.

    don't want to import, just view on SD card!

    • Written by from columbus

    This work fine for importing, but I don't want to import just view from SD card. All these pics are going to eat up my memory on the iPad. I want to pop the card in, look at the pics FULL screen to preview. Then I can save them in a bigger drive elsewhere later. I can do this on my lame-o pc, why not this apple device?

    Does not work with Canon Rebel XT

    • Written by from Hamburg

    The Camera Connection Kit does not work with my Canon Rebel XT. Received error message: This USB Device is not supported. Really?! Rather useless product if it does not work with a very common camera type. Cannot use SD adapter, as Canon uses CF card format. Wish I read the product reviews before buying.

    Good product, bad instructions

    • Written by from Allen

    Don't return it yet !!! It's not plug and play, but by googling I learned the following for using the SD card:

    1. The images on the SD card MUST be inside a folder named DCIM (just like a camera)
    2. The file name CANNOT exceed 8 characters, plus the suffix. Example: 12345678.jpg

    Don't ask me why these are the rules..... I was so frustrated....I made sure these rules applied and then it worked perfectly. Works for loading .mp4 files too.

    I take a LOT of pictures! The connection kit, for me, it AWESOME! I prefer to use the SD connection, because it is so much easier. I pop it in, and the pics come up immediately, and I can choose those I want to import. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this device!
