    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.

    As a student on limited budget, I spent my hard earned financial aid on this to help with my PHOTO class. I love the concept...But in order to see the pics in the AWESOME screen, u have to IMPORT them.I would like to just VIEW them on the screen WITHOUT having to import them.
    They take WAY too much room to import all.
    Or maybe someone has an "Quick-view" app where I can click on the "RAW" pic, and it enlarges it. So I can enjoy the BEAUTIFUL screen....

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from Windsor

    I have had the camera connection kit for about one and half years. It works with fine. It either imports from the SD card directly when the card is still installed in the camera using the USB Interface or the SD card can be removed and used with the SD Card Reader connection. If you take a photo without a SD card in the camera, but the camera has internal memory – the photos will download into the iPad using the USB Interface. The USB Interface cannot be connected and a photo taken with the camera at the same time (at least with my camera). Also my camera has Wi-Fi connection, but the iPad does not recognize it.

    Easy for NON-Technical Person

    • Written by from Wichita

    My husband is president of his company, doesn't have time to research all of the apple technology. He couldn't figure out how to get photo's off of his camera. I bought this kit - plug in to your iPad, iPhone, insert scan disc and he has his photo's. It's great for him, instant gratification. I would recommend this - it's really a great addition. I purchased one for myself as well. It's in my camera bag!

    Great Little Tools

    • Written by from INDIANAPOLIS

    Love these little tools! Thanks Apple for giving us an easier way to transfer our pics! No more going to the PC to transfer all my pics! Now I can share my camera photos right away. So easy to use. Pluged it in to my iPad, then to my camera & right away an import option came up with all of my photos. Love it!

    Worked great

    • Written by from chapel hill

    I have a lumix something or other camera. When I plugged it in with the card the iPad 2 picked up its signals within minutes. It took a little while to download all the pictures but they were HD so they could be expected. I loved this because it made it so much easier to access and send photos on my iPad.

    USB Option worked great

    • Written by from Odenton

    I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-TX1. With power off on both iPad and camera I put the adapter on the USB end of the camera charger and then plugged into the iPad. The iPad immediately came on. I turned on the camera and the iPad immediately opened up the Photos application, displayed all of the photos, and gave me a choice to delete all or import all. If I touched a photo, the option immediately changed to import selected or delete selected. Once I copied a selected photo it gave me an option to delete that photo from the camera. I do believe that sequencing is key; my camera accidentally became disconnected and I had to disconnect the iPad and the camera, power both off, and restart the process. I am very pleased. While connected my camera indicates it is in "Mass Storage" mode. The memory stick adapter will not work with my camera, which uses a Memory Pro Duo stick, but I knew that when I purchased and was content with having one solution. I have been very frustrated about how difficult it is to communicate with the iPad ... this plugs a big gap for me for upcoming cruises when my cell phone will not be available. Now I need to decide which postcard app to use, and I'm good to go!

    Its great for iMovie

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    When I got an iPad, I really wanted to do some editing on it. I had videos on my iPod that I wanted to put together, but the iMovie app for it doesn't work very well. After finding out about this thing, I went and got the kit and works so well. Takes a while to upload videos more then 3 minutes, but that's expected. One more thing, do your research, I went to three different Apple employees and asked if it really did that, and they said that it doesn't. It wasn't until I showed one of them the How To section of iMovie that he realized that it was true. Other then that, great product.

    Read so many negative Reviews before taking the plunge and buying a Sony cyber shot with 8gb memory card schd but need not have been concerned as it was picked up by my iPad as soon as I connected and loaded all my pictures. Works perfectly.

    Read all reviews - but still purchase

    • Written by from Union Beach

    it's good to read reviews on past buying experiences - but in this case it was about 60/40 bad to good - but I still purchased anyway. I had faith in Apple.

    My camera is a Olympus 1030SW and the "camera adapter" works just perfect for it. As soon as I powered on the camera, the "photo" section of my Ipad 2 opened and I was able to select pictures/movies to download.

    Olympus cameras use "XD" - not "SD" - so the "card reader" will be for my wife's camera card which uses SD cards (Canon)

    How to get around the "uses too much power" issue with USB devices

    • Written by from Spring Hill

    I have a Sony Bloggie 3D camera that, when connected to my iPad 2, gets a "uses too much power" message. I connected the Bloggie to a cheapo USB powered hub, then connected the hub to the iPad, and everything worked perfectly. For some reason I had to do this twice - the order in which connections are made may be important. Again, I connected the camera to the powered hub first, then connected the hub via adapter to the iPad.

    Great product

    • Written by from NORMANGEE

    The Camera connection kit for I pad was the easiest thing to use ever. I love it. We have game cameras out for looking at deer, this works great for putting the SD cards in the I pad and viewing the pictures right on the spot and erasing the cards. Could not be easier to use. I highly recommend this product.

    After reading some of the other reviews, I was a little nervous about buying this but I have to say that I was not disappointed. I just plugged in my Nikon and the photos download screen popped right up. Worked as expected, great product.

    the SD reader works perfectly. it takes a bit of getting familiar with using the iPad’s Photo app as compared to iPhoto. But once you get over that this hardware lets be travel without my laptop.

    No problems. The card reader worked great. Tried the usb with 2 different cameras, nikon &fuji. Both worked great. The usb does needto have a powered usb device connected so thumb drives are out.

    It works great. Don't read the negative comments! Simple to use too.

    • Written by from Burke

    I was hesitant to buy this because of the negative words posted here. Buy it. This works great. Used it everyday for ten days with SD cards (hundreds of raw files) and an IPad2. Instantly (almost) transferred all of the pictures from the card to the iPad. The device starts up on the iPad automatically when a camera's card is inserted into the connector in the dock. The software offers an opportunity to 'delete or keep' all images on the card after import. Disconnect the small device and enjoy seeing/editing your photos on the iPad in vivid color.

    When I returned home from vacation, I transferred the images I had kept on several cards but I could easily have imported them into my photo management software from the Ipad2.
    I read and re-read the comments some users had connecting their cameras to the connector. I did not try to do this since I am accustomed to removing the camera's card to transfer files to a mac.

    I rarely write reviews but read and depend on them before making purchases. This gadget is definitely worth 5 stars because now I travel with an iPad and leave my mac at home. Bravo Apple!

    Works perfectly

    • Written by from Fishers

    I have a Cannon 30D. I bought the adapter yesterday. I plugged in the USB adapter, then plugged the cord from the camera into the adapter, turned on the iPad, then powered up the camera. All my pics (300+) started to download/preview immediately. I picked 40 to put on my iPad, and downloaded them. It couldn't have been easier. WELL WORTH $30!
