    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.

    Not working with Canon EOS 300d

    • Written by from Sevenoaks

    So far not impressed with this purchase. whilst it reads cards from my Lumix DMC TZ7, when I connect it to my Canon EOS 300d it just states incompatible device. This happens even with the communication setting on the camera set to PTP.

    Works well and does what I need it to

    • Written by from Palm Coast

    I almost didn't purchase this product because of all the reviews. Then I thought, Apples doesn't tend to make stuff that doesn't work. For $30 I'll give it a try. To be clear, I don't use the SD Card adapter as my cameras are all CFs, so this review only applies to the camera connection.

    When I first connected my camera, I had to change the communication mode to PTP as I was getting "incompatible device" errors. Once I did that, BAM! It was great! Snap a shot - there it was. No problems at all. I was able to quickly import photos, edit them using any of the apps I have for that purpose and upload them wherever I wanted.

    The ONLY downside I found was the downsizing (which isn't a problem with the iPad, but with editing apps). If you have a camera that takes good sized photos, don't make the mistake of deleting your originals after importing. Once you edit them on your iPad they'll be downsized quite a bit so keep the originals on your card until you backup to your computer, just to be safe. :-) Love it!

    ipad 3 Sony memory stick

    • Written by from Naples

    If your trying to use a USB Sony memory stick adapter and inserting into the Apple USB camera adapter you will get error message the device uses to much power and can not be used don't knock yourself out it won't work, I have a Sony cyber shot if you want to down load your photos to iPad 3 connect the cable that comes with your Sony to the USB Apple adapter
    then to your camera ( power on camera) then plug the Apple adapter end to iPad 3, if you get an error go to the Sony menue (it may ask you to any way) and switch from mass storage to PTP then follow the prompt you should be fine after that.

    Doesnt allow you to create folder names, error importing

    • Written by from Fitzroy north

    Does not allow you to add the files to a specific folder you create. A problem when hoolking up my video camera, it thinks I am copying over the same files. It also seems to split the one set of files into mulltiple folders. Really needs some better software. It would not read the format of my .mp4 files (Sanyo Xacti) on the ipad.

    Power Problems

    • Written by from El Cerrito

    It's a shame that apple changed iOS to prevent delivering power to the devices, this caused incompatibilities with some memory cards and camera hardware!

    Not a user-friendly experience

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I have attempted to use this over the course of a year. My experience is that my camera has difficulty establishing a connection to the iPad. Typically, when I plug the camera (most recently a Sony Cybershot DSC TX10, but previously a different Cybershot) into this port, the iPad does NOT recognize anything at all. Typically I end up having to pull the memory card and insert it directly into the iPad.

    Part of the problem may be that I cannot charge either the camera or the iPad during the connection period because their charger ports are being used to make this connection. Nonetheless, that isn't a valid excuse for the process not to work. Essentially this problem reflects the limitations and design constraints of the iPad. Disappointing.

    Insufficiant Power

    • Written by from Adelaide

    I have a Sony Cybershot and originally this kit used to work fine and downloaded my photos onto the iPad not problem then all of a sudden it just stopped and now it gives me the insufficiant power message.

    Same kit, same memory card just stopped working. Thought it might have been the amount of data but no wont work with even one photo on the memory card.

    As it used to work I wonder if it is more a iPad software version problem.

    Doesn't work with new ipad

    • Written by from Terrace

    I bought the ipad 3 to use for traveling and posting photos from my camera to my blog while away. I had researched that a camera connector kit would make my new ipad able to do just that. It won't connect with my camera - just get an error message "too much power" - cannot connect. I tried it with a different camera and got the same error message. I am really disappointed. I would give this product a zero stars if I could - for use with the new ipad.

    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!

    Does not even deserve a star

    • Written by from Grande Prairie

    . Can't download from my video cam, sd memory card (or any memory card for that matter), or my camera. These are a waste of money which wouldn't even allow me to transfer one single picture. NOT HAPPY and seriously never gonna buy any more apple stuff.

    Did not work at all!

    • Written by from Westfield

    Bought this tody to download vca pics to my ipad2. Tried to connect camera first, draws too much power, OK I'll use the card reader, no luck there either. Could not read. This is a sans disk micro with an adapter. So very frustrated and disappointed with this product. Back to the apple store tomorrow with the connection kit and my camera, a waste of my time. I am counting on them to make this right. I had to put 1 star in to submit review, it should be a big fat 0.

    Transfers photos off my camera

    • Written by from Queen City Park

    This kit works like a charm to transfer pictures off my camera using the SD card, however if the folder's name was changed or I tried to transfer a folder from my computer, I couldn't get the device to recognize the files. Now I know to transfer pictures before naming the folders so that shouldn't be an issue. I haven't tried the USB port yet. I hope a future software update will let me transfer any file from SD card to IPad but it will do for now.

    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.
