    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!

    This connector worked perfectly with my original iPad, but all I get are "unsupported" error messages with my new iPad 3. Anybody else having the same problem?

    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.

    Needs to be worked on (combo with ipad)

    • Written by from Wuppertal

    Purchased CCK for my holiday trip. Shot hundreds of photos each day and used Ipad for rewiev/backup. First problem:

    - when you import the size of the thumbnail is waaay too small. Had to import everything from the SD card

    Now, after a week of photoshooting got to organize stuff. So I created the 'BestOf' album and copied good stuff there. Now the second big problem emerged:

    - There is no usable way to bunch-delete photos. It is really annoying having to select each pic separately. And no, I dont have a Mac/Pc/whatever with me - that is why I took Ipad!

    And then:

    - You cannot delete whole album either
    - when you delete a picture which is in another album, there is no way of telling which album(s) was ment. If picture is deleted, it disappears everywhere. This makes the idea of an album kind of useless.

    Summary: hardware works, software is useless.. The combination of Ipad+ CCK is not practical.

    For my next big holiday I will take a bunch of SD card and organize my photos when I am back home. I will definately save a lot of time.

    Only worked once!

    • Written by from Oviedo

    Bought the iPad3 specifically for loading my vacation photos through the SD card adapter so I wouldn't have to bring my laptop along. It only worked the first time I put a card in. I tried 6 different SD cards to see if the cards may have been the problem. Still nothing. It just doesn't get recognized. Now I have to make a trip to the Apple store, bringing my cards and computer with me, to see if they can figure out whats going on. What a pain!!! Seems others are having no issues. Wish that were me!

    Performed as advertised.

    Just purchased for Nikon coolpix S8000. Hooked it up using USB cable. Immediately downloaded around 30 pictures. Am looking forward to trip to Italy in June without having to lug around laptop. $29 price seems about right.

    Works perfectly with iPad3!

    • Written by from Towson

    Despite the somewhat mixed reviews here, I purchased one of these and it was pleased to find that it works just fine and dandy with my iPad3. First I connected the USB piece and connected my digicam - and boom - hundreds of pics came right through. I was impressed at the speed given the large image files I had. Then I tried again with an SD card, and boom again - the pics came flying through. This is uber-easy to use and it does what its advertised to do. I haven't tried any wacky uses or connecting other non-camera devices through the USB - I got it to load images - and that is exactly what it does, pure and simple.
