    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!

    Works fine uploading to my iPad; but camera no longer recognizes it.

    • Written by from Temple Hills

    I bought the adapter because I travel a lot. I didn't like waiting until I got home to download my pictures from my camera. My laptop is too heavy to lug around while taking pictures so I liked the fact that I could lighten my load with my iPad. The trouble came when I put the SD card back in my camera to take more pictures. My camera would no longer recognize the card. It also would not allow me to re-format it either. Essentially my SD card is now useless.

    Uh Really?

    • Written by from Tariffville

    When I load pictures from the SD card that has been in the camera it works, but when I upload other photos to the SD card from my computer to transfer them it doesn't work. The same camera, same tag, same SD card. I was under the impression this would make uploading photos easier than syncing to iTunes. Not! Oh.. and the only idiot is one who answers a question without understanding the question first.

    Bought this for my iPad and iphone4s. It worked great until I updated the operations system to ios6 and now it does not work. I get a message saying the hardware is not supported.

    I loooove the camera connection kit! It's so fast, and easy to use. I love putting my photos on my iPad instead of having to load them on my laptop. Once your photos on on your iPad, it makes it easy to post to Facebook or share with friends.

    The most upredictable device I have seen.

    • Written by from Milpitas

    Well I thought I can put my jpg's on my SD card and then I can import them to my ipad using the adaptor nice and easy. What's wrong with that thought?
    Most weird: If I use an SD card that I have from one of my cameras then it seemed to read the files in ok. If I take the same SD and then I put some other jpgs then the ipad does not see those jpg. Sometimes it will import 3 out 30 some other times it will do nothing. I can read and write the very same card with the computer.. I even tried to leave the same directory structure the camera creates..
    I think now apple started looking like windows. You do the same thing and you get different results every time.

    Works perfectly with EOS 7D & 5D MKII

    • Written by from Honolulu

    I plugged the USB adapter into my iPad2 (iOS 6.01), connected the USB cable and switched on my 7D. Almost immediately a preview of everything on the card popped up. I picked out what I wanted to transfer and it just worked! Repeated the same with my 5D2 with the same excellent results. Once onboard I could view, edit, email or upload to FB, etc. Wish there was a CF card reader for pro cameras but the wired connection works fine.

    What a great device for travel and uploading images in the field or around town. I've read so many bad reviews I almost didn't buy this device but decided to give it a go, and I'm really glad I did. I assume Apple fixed earlier problems as the Camera Connection Kit just works: no special settings, delays or messin' around. I wish it worked with an iPhone as that sure would be handy for quick uploads on the run but I can settle for my iPad.

    • Written by from Okotoks

    Love it! Bought it transfer pics to my ipad2 and that's what it does! Handy product when away from my desktop and want to dump pics off the camera or just to transfer them to use with iMovie app or photo apps.

    Does not work

    • Written by from Morrisville

    Tried plugging my Canon eos rebel directly into the iPad 3 using the kit. Simply states USB device not supported. The camera uses cf cards so this is a useless product.

    Doesn't work

    • Written by from Edinburgh

    Both my iPad min and my latest-gen iPad 4 complain that this is "not supported by this device". Both completely up to date with the latest iOS version.
    Why is this device sold with a picture of an iPad on the box when it is not suitable for purpose? Very poor Apple. "It just works"? No.

    Wish it worked

    • Written by from Odenton

    Apparently these adapters are VERY particular about which devices can be connected. I tried two different brands of SD cards and nothing happens. I also tried the USB flash memory sticks I have on hand and get a message that the device cannot be used because it requires too much power. I wonder how many SD cards and memory sticks I'll have to buy before I find any that work...

    So Far So Good - SD Photos

    • Written by from APO

    I've only tried out the SD Card reader. I hadn't thought about the possibilities that open with the other reader so I'll come back to that in a later review.
    I have a Canon Rebel EOS DSLR and a Canon Powershot (I actually use the SD cards in both cameras as well). I also shoot the majority of my photos in RAW format. So I was a little hesitant to think this would really open my photos AND allow me to import and edit. I plugged in the reader and voila! Photos opened, I could select the photos I wanted and import them, then edit in an editor.
    I've read multiple reviews that say that it doesn't work, I'm wondering with updates if I'll have problems but my iPad has a version 5 on the software, and my husbands has a version 6. Both have no issues opening the photos from the Photo App. It took me a second to refind the photos but once I started going to the built in Photo App I was able to find them there. - iPad 2, 16G. WiFi only.

    iPad camera connection kit

    • Written by from Moundsville

    Works. Does need a human to push adapter into the required slot. Does need a sd card for you to take the pictures from. Does need a cable to attach your camera using the USB adapter. Has read all of my sd cards and all of my USB devices do work, I now have all of my pictures from my game trail camera loaded with ease. If you are not able to get these adapters to work you must be an idiot! Great product for the family!

    A great accessory that I actually use everyday. I have Sony RX100 that I take photos in RAW file and easily transmit to my iPad 3rd Gen in RAW. Haven't experience any of the problems other talk about. Good job Apple

    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!

    Great product with multiple uses!

    • Written by from Meridian

    When I had my blue Kodak camera, this would have been great and I am thankful I could save my thousands of pics using this and the SD reader. I have a new found use of collecting game camera photos for viewing and downloading while still in the woods with no Internet connection, so that I need not collect cards, check on a laptop and bring back later but download to view and not miss a second of camera time on our property. My newer (2y/o) Sony camera has a memory stick pro duo that won't fit the sd and for some reason the USB WILL NOT connect to a camera. When connected it does not recognize it and doesn't work. It will import iphone pics via 30-pin to USB to be edited in iPhoto on the great bigger screen, including panoramas.

    Plugged in the SD Card reader as instructed and got no connection at all. Doesn't read the card and nothing happens. Useless for reviewing and/or importing pictures. Would give it a no stars rating if the system allowed it.
