    Better Off With Photo Transfer App

    • Written by from Bedford

    This kit only works with a few of my SD cards and will not work with any USB flash drive or USB card reader. It also limits which photos can be transferred and does not allow you to name folders. I find the Photo Transfer App in the Apple app store which allows WiFi transfers to be far superior at a small fraction of the price.

    Worked for Me

    • Written by from Kennewick

    I have a first gen iPad and an older Sony camera, went on a trip with both but only 128 MB worth of storage in the camera. Finally found a place that sold the CCK, hooked it up via the USB cable and got the "USB device not supported" message. Frustrated to say the least. Found a post on the Apple customer reviews for the CCK about changing the camera download setting to "PTP", so I did that and it worked just fine. Seems like Apple could have made that a little clearer in the rather skimpy instructions.

    Works 50% of the time

    • Written by from Lodi

    It worked with a 16gb SDHC class 10 card but doesn't work with a 64gb SDXC class 10 card. For the 64 gb card it keeps saying it cannot read the contents of the card eventhough all my pictures have 8 characters in them and are in a folder called DCIM.

    Convenient and underpowered

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Cannot power a simple card reader. Otherwise it can connect easily to self-powered devices. If you have a powered USB hub, carry that around with you, too. That kind of makes the elegance of this device disappear.

    I'm extremely disappointed! I got this for my birthday and though oh great I can upload photos easy without going through syncing and stuff. WRONG! I used it once and what happens? My photo library with all the photos I've already imported from my PC are gone. I can't find them. So I tried reimporting my photo library the old fashion way... I got half photos and not even all of them. I got 12photos out of the 400 I imported and some of them were half photo half white screen. This is a rip off dont buy this.

    I have purchased two iPad Camera Connection Kits for use with SDHC cards. Neither of them worked! My iPad doesn't even recognize that the connector is docked.

    works for new iPad and my Canon cameras!

    • Written by from Los Altos

    The reviews of this Kit are very mixed, so I was concerned. I'm happy to report that the iPad Camera Connection Kit (MC531ZM/A) worked for my equipment: new iPad, Canon S100 camera, and Canon 40D camera. Note that this is the new kit that doesn't have a USB cable.

    The S100 has a 32 GB SD card. The iPad read the SD card both in the Kit card reader and in the camera. I used a USB cable (USB to mini USB) to read directly from the S100 and 40D. No problems. The iPad saw both JPEG and RAW files from both cameras. The 40D has a CF card. I tried using a CF card reader with a USB connection, but the iPad complained, saying that the CF reader took too much power.

    I deducted a star because I had to use my USB-to-mini-USB cable to read directly from the cameras.

    Connection kit

    I love these connectors. It is so easy to load my pictures right into my iPad new generation! The pictures are beautiful and easy to do.

    Great for SDHC

    • Written by from Fairfield

    This connection kit has worked really well with my iPad 3, though it does not work with your iPhone. That was a little disappointing.

    But to any photographers, if you use a SDXC card, this connection kit will not work. I was really disappointed because I have a 64gb SDXC card with my Nikon D7000, and the SD card reader won't read it. But if you do connect the camera via the USB connection, you can pass your photos that way through your iPad.

    Works with Canon t4i

    • Written by from Westport

    I almost would not have bought the kit based on all the reviews stating it does not work with the current iPad. I called customer service and asked if she can find out if it works with the Canon Ti series. She told me she has a canon rebel herself and it works for her - so I bought it and it does work on the iPad running 5.1.1: connect the USB cable to camera, fire it up and the photo software starts automatically. You can now select, download and delete. When done- just disconnect.

    Not compatible with SDXC

    • Written by from THE WOODLANDS


    Works well on standard SD cards but it won't read my new 64 GB Extreme Pro 95 MB/s SDXC card for my NEX-7 with the card reader or the USB connector. Come on Apple you can do better. You are supposed to be on the forefront of technology.

    Please release a new CCK supporting the latest technology available.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Colorado Springs

    I almost didn't by this because of the reviews here. However I bought it and they work just fine. I have an Extreme 8gb Sandisk card that unloaded with no problems whatsoever. The other adapter worked fine as well. I highly recommend this product.

    Waste of money. SDXC DOESN'T WORK

    • Written by from West palm beach

    Not compatible with SDXC, and I thought Apple products just worked. Apple is usually great but this was a waste of money. I am new to photography and all my memory cards are SDXC because it is the newest technology.

    $$$ Camera Kit Scam

    • Written by from beaverton

    Purchased the camera kit yesterday (6/17/2012) and it was a total bust. I should have read all the reviews before purchasing. It seems apple has decided that OS5 was designed to get you to spend more to Download pictures from your camera. Nice move apple!

    Seriously...? Waste of money!

    • Written by from Webb City

    So I just connected my camera to my iPad for the first time, and I am also getting the inadequate power message. So I just wasted a bunch of money on a software issue? Apple, I expect so much better from you. All I want is to make room on my camera for more vacation pictures, and now it seems I can't. Wonderful...

    I have a 3rd generation iPad and a DSLR camera. The camera requires loading its compact flash cards or microdrives into a USB adaptor to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. My new iPad gives me an error message saying that the device requires too much power. What a ridiculous design, I bought a top of the line iPad + a $30 device which I now find out can't work together. What a WASTE of money! Apple I am very disappointed in you,as well as disgusted. What were you thinking?! I would have chosen a -1 rating if I could have.

    Worked great for me

    • Written by from Peekskill

    Since I rely on reviews I had read many here some were mixed. I had concerns but went a head with buying the connection kit as it hopefully would fulfill a big need of mine. I cruise a lot and take hundreds of pictures. I always bring my 15" Macbook Pro for email, picture transfer/backup etc. I am looking to eliminate need to take the laptop with me and for that to happen I require a method to backup the photo's off camera card in case of camera loss etc. Turns out using the Ipad as backup coupled, especially with iPhoto app on Ipad makes whole picture thing far more useful that using laptop. Far easier to review and dump photo's don't need and establish the ones to keep.

    Bottom line this connector transferred photos and video fast. I was extremely happy in the transfer process. Simply plugged into Ipad then inserted 16gb Ultra card HC I sandisk. Up popped the thumbnails and options, downloaded, even then offers keep or erase on card option. I kept then did it for next days shots, options complete with option to download all or new etc.

    Worked fine every time! Note the iPhoto app is not needed to transfer that is done with normal Ipad picture functioning, all automatically just plugging in card.

    Came home and for once had already edited down my 350 photo's to 175 thanks to reviewing them on the Ipad. Simply transferred them to my desktop.
