    WASTE OF MONEY

    • Written by from Fort Worth

    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.

    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...

    USELESS!!!

    • Written by from Arlington

    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.

    Crippled By Apple

    • Written by from Warrensburg

    This device USED to work great, until Apple reduced the power to the dock from 100 ma to 20 ma. They did this to try to control what devices people could/could not used with their products. However, now this product is all but USELESS because MANY SDXC cards & USB flash drives WILL NOT WORK with the kit b/c, as many other reviewers have already mentioned, the error message of, "The connected USB device requires too much power."

    Thanks Apple. Thanks a lot. Now I have $30 of worthless plastic and no convenient way to get the things I want on and off of my iPad 2 when away from home. "With Apple, it just works" MY BUM, Tim Cook.

    The USB connection is worthless because it will not supply power to the USB drive so it will not read it. The camera connection is worthless because it won't read the jpg files from a Canon G11 or 5D3. Apple thanks for nothing.

    so disappointed

    • Written by from Philadelphia

    Just bought a Nikon S9300 and the iPad Camera Connector Kit. If one of the two had to fail, I'd choose the connector kit, because it did. "Device requires too much power" or some such nonsense. As if I have to time for this. How do you sell a product that a customer can't use?

    Camera USB Connector doesn't, measure up

    • Written by from Baldwin

    I purchased the camera adaptor for USB and SD cards executing to be Abe to use other USB storage devices with my new IPad 3. Unfortunately it came up with an error message that the device uses too much power, which seems uncharacteristic of an Apple product. Looking into it further it seems that with the
    The iOS 4.2 they reduced the device to 20 Mamp instead of the 100Mamp that it used to accommodate . Since this is the only USB connectivity Apple provides for the IPad , I would hope they will update the firmware in the near future.

    Don't buy it

    • Written by from SAINT LOUIS

    This kit has been severely crippled in the newer OS versions, will not work with any form of CF card reader also will not connect to the Canon dslr's in the new OS. I am getting very upset with the lack of flexibility of Apples newer Products

    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!

    iPad camera connection does not work!

    • Written by from Amherst

    As many have found out, this is a highly buggy interface. It does not work on a standard Canon point and shoot camera Powershot SD850. It also does not work on two of my Nikon cameras.

    Mechanically, this connection is a piece of junk. It is flimsy, and keeps coming out.

    I doubt Apple will do anything to fix this, but here's hoping.....

    Seriously!!!

    • Written by from Woodbridge

    Almost everything I connected to it I got the message that the USB device requires too much power!!!! I'm simply trying a an 8gb USB stick... Not a fridge

    Based on my research, i found that this was done on purpose by apple. Apparently before the power restriction this waste of my money was quite useful. I need to be able to connect a USB stick otherwise there is no need for the USB port.... Don't sell it if it's useless

    Adapter is good, but software could be so much more

    • Written by from Tomales

    The adapter is decent for attaching a camera to an iPad. Should also make one to connect to the iPhone.

    Huge software improvement would be to add an interface so that the camera can be controlled directly from the iPad or iPhone, especially adding a live view function (see what the camera sees on your device). It would turn iPhones and iPads into great tools for video shooting, since their resolution is so much better than a camera's LCD screen. Right now companies sell (Zacuto, SmallHD, etc.) LCD screens to attach to dSLR cameras for video shooting, charging $500-1000. Why not let us use the super hi resolution screens that we always carry around with us instead (i.e. iPhones and iPads)

    • Written by from Reading

    I never write reviews for things, so at least I now know how cross I need to be before I do so! I selected the more expensive Apple-branded product over the much cheaper versions, as I stupidly assumed it would be more likely to work.

    I've just wasted the past few hours of my busy life trying to get the SD attachment or the USB connector to work with anything. It doesn't. I've tried files and photos, different SD cards, the camera lead versus a USB stick, etc. etc. I wish I'd read one of these reviews before bothering, as by a strange coincidence I too am running the new OS.

    Very disappointed with you, Apple - I won't be buying any more of your expensive accessories. Would have picked 0 stars if that had been possible.
