    Raw pictures work too !

    • Written by from DENHAAG

    SD pictures (JPeg for instance) work fine. In addition to that, it fully supports D3000 and RAW files (.NEF). Could preview all pictures on the iPad and sync later with iMac. Wonderful.

    Constrains iPhone photos to 600x600

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    I bought this product to transfer photos from my iPhone to my iPad so that I can edit them on the bigger screen of the iPad. Unfortunately, the transferred iPhone photos are constrained to 600x600 for some reason. I am not sure why this product is doing this. As such, I'm greatly disappointed.

    Not working with my Canon 350D nor my Olympus TG 620...

    • Written by from Barcelona

    If I connect my Canon 350 to my iPad (3rd Gen, iOS 6.1) I got "device not supported".

    If I connect my Olympus TG 620 (purchased today) I got "device uses too much power".

    How comes? Am I doing anything wrong?

    If I connect my iPhone 5, it works.

    If I connect the SD card from my Olympus, it works. Cannot connect the Canon 350 card, as it uses Compact Flash.

    Please Apple fix this thing!

    Wished it worked!!

    • Written by from Melbourne

    One of the best things I used to love about apple products was how simple things just worked. I now have a camera connection kit that used to work on my 3rd gen IPad, but now doesn't because it is not a recognised accessory!!

    Not Happy!

    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!

    Which cameras work?

    • Written by from San Jose

    I decided to treat myself to an iPad and new camera - a nice portable Nikon, I was assured at the Apple Store that yes this was the kit I needed, then reality struck...I had no luck in getting the iPad to acknowldge the camera and then somehow it did and I was told it consumed too much power...and ???
    Apple should inform us which camera's can work, this is a real shortcoming of the iPad and Apple just seem to want to hide it.

    Worked great for the first 2 weeks and than, after we were on a tour and relied on the adapters, both of them stopped working. Very frustrating and disappointing.

    SD memory card interface works great for me

    • Written by from Chandler

    I bought this as a way of quickly sharing images when shooting at a venue. I noticed a social change when sharing via the iPad rather than by squinting at the 3" display on the back of my Nikon D90. Seeing the excitement on folks faces when they see 1024x768 images is selfishly rewarding :-)

    If I had one complaint, it would be 'why are you obliged to purchase both the SD and USB interface if you only want the SD interface?'. For my style of use, I 'never' attach a camera via USB to anything - why waste the camera battery power. I guess if you don't have an SD memory card compatible camera, you'd use the USB adapter, but not me. So I'd like to see consumers given the option of purchasing either the SD or the USB adapter. Heck - I'd even pay $20 for the SD adapter alone, which means Apple would get even more margin...

    Works for me

    • Written by from Boynton Beach

    The USB connector works with my Canon 5D and the iPhone 3G! Make sure the PC/Printer is set to printer on your menu on your Canon Camera.

    Great Photo Accessory

    • Written by from Seattle

    Love this accessory for photos. Makes the iPad a perfect photographers companion. connect camera, iPhone or other card readers via USB or use the SD one to read off SD cards. No complaints!

    It works with iPad mini and lightning to 30-pin kit

    • Written by from Alameda

    I used this with my iPad 3 and it worked wonders.
    I got the iPad mini and used it with my Lightening to to 30-pin adapter with both the SD card and USB adapter and it works mostly like a charm. The SD card had no issues, but with the USB cable. I had to get a 6" USB cable to work with my camera. I used to be able to use my 12" and above USB cable with no issues. Now it shows that it is drawing too much power. I also used to be able to use my Sandisk USB thumb drive, but same issue now. Overall it serves its purpose and I don't have to now buy two separate Lightening adapters for $30 a piece! I can use my old 30-pin USB cables with the $30 Lightening to USB adapter and the 30-pin camera kit for $30. I hope they don't remove this option in future software/hardware updates.

    Side note, thank you Apple for finally bringing the Lightening to Micro USB port adapter. But $19... Wish you brought the 30-pin to Micro USB port adapter to the States.

    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.

    Camera connection kit

    • Written by from Warrington

    This product does not work!!!! Have gone through ALL the turning off/resetting etc etc etc on iPad.....Nada!

    Are Apple listening to their customers, or do we have to put up with being sold inferior products?

    I could not post this review until I rated the product, I didn't want to, but had to give it one star!

    Why not include the iPhone

    • Written by from Pioneer

    This little device is great to travel with. We use it all the time with our iPads. I really don't understand why Apple doesn't make it iPhone compatible. I have wished many times that I could import directly to my iPhone when I don't have my iPad.

    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.

    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.

    Considered returning it, BUT....

    • Written by from La Mirada

    I bought the kit today and I LOVE iT - well, after tinkering with it and reading reviews. Hooked up nikon coolpix using USB cable at first, it didn't work. "too much power." moved on to sd card slot, worked like a charm! Wondering if apple would refund me $14.50 for the non-working USB connector, I perused reviews and was disappointed until one reviewer mentioned turning off his camera's "auto transfer something-something." Aha! "too much power! " so I went to my camera settings, turned off "auto charge through computer" and voilà! The kit is a keeper.

    Not compatible with card reader

    • Written by from Knoxville

    I wanted to transfer jpegs from memory card reader but when I plugged it into this adapter it said used too much power and could not be done. My camera uses a memory card that is too large for the built in slot. This was very disappointing since I now can't add photos easily.
