    Photographers dream!

    • Written by from cardiff

    i didn't know what i was missing till i got this nifty little guy, as a photographer it is great to do a shoot and upload the pictures right in my ipad for quick review instead of relying on my little camera lcd or waiting till i get home to load them on the computer. easy to use and imports really quickly! great for traveling also, its like having and extrernal drive with a display! just wish the ipad would let you make albums. iphoto for ipad please!!

    My first iPad disappointment

    • Written by from New York

    So my rating doesn't match the title. Because the product is great, the iPad is the issue. I researched and checked supported formats because I wanted to take movies and photos from my Kodak Zi8 video camera. I imported (from the SD Card) but the movies won't play. They are in H.264 (MOV), AAC LC format and I can't do anything with them. The whole point was to not depend on a PC/Mac and file conversion software. Therefore, disappointed

    Great for vacations

    • Written by from New York

    I bought the camera connection kit for a recent vacation. It was great to take pictures during the day, then load them on my iPad and view, edit, etc. Made it much easier to post pics to facebook during my vacation. It was great. I was using two different cameras (and my iPhone) so it made it really easy to combine all my photos. Also freed up memory space on my cameras so I could take more pics.

    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.

    Great for SDHC

    • Written by from Fairfield

    This connection kit has worked really well with my iPad 3, though it does not work with your iPhone. That was a little disappointing.

    But to any photographers, if you use a SDXC card, this connection kit will not work. I was really disappointed because I have a 64gb SDXC card with my Nikon D7000, and the SD card reader won't read it. But if you do connect the camera via the USB connection, you can pass your photos that way through your iPad.

    Where is the support for compact flash?

    • Written by from Livermore

    While I can connect my camera with a USB cable to transfer photos this is not a desirable solution. It requires I carry another cable with me, the camera cannot be used while the transfer is performed, and it drains the camera battery while the photos are transferred. Come on Apple, wake up and realize that a large number of your customers use large and expensive cameras that use compact flash cards. Is your product manager asleep or something?

    Not all it's cracked up to be

    • Written by from New Westminster

    The iPad aadapter only partly works. The SD card reader works like a charm, the iPhone connects with th e USB adaapter and transfers like a dream. However, connecting a camera directly cause a error, which basically states that "the device takes too much power". Can't even plug in a simple USB drive and download the photos without getting this error. Too bad cause I am now trying to find an alternative so I can connect my Samsung and Canon digital cameras to work.

    Worked PRIOR to iOS 6

    • Written by from Baytown

    A month ago I wouldve given this 5 stars, but after iOS6 it works about 1/10 of the time. Not worth the money, AT ALL. Hope they fix this ASAP!!!

    Worked Once

    • Written by from Stansbury Park

    I have the 3rd gen iPad with iOS 6, and this camera kit has only worked one time. Every time I plug in the USB adapter, with my camera connected, it always says "accessory not supported on iPad". The SD card adapter does not work either. Very disappointed in this product. Hope they can fix it.

    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.

    SD card connector

    • Written by from CURRIE

    Sd card connects quickly and photos are imported easily. However after the choice to clear the card or keep the photos there is no option to "safely remove" the sd card. Just pulling the card out results in it needing to be formatted in camera before it will work again. Powering down the iPad sorts this as far as I can see.

    Is this a common problem or is it just me ?

    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.

    What a waste

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    Thank You Apple for granting me the privilege of moving photos to my iPad. My android will connect to any computer and act like a portable hard rive. But this...THIS! This will let me move photos only. Wow. What a privilege. Can't move audio files to garage band. Can't move PDF files. Can't move anything but photos. It's genius. Now if it want to move audio files from my handheld recorder to my iPad, I have to go through my laptop. I guess I'll just cut out the middle man and do everything on my laptop. What a waste. Thank you for my $700 Facebook browser.

    Canon EOS connectivity with USB adapter in kit

    • Written by from Searcy

    If your Canon EOS camera is PictBridge capable it will send pictures to the iPad. Go to the camera's menu and then to communication. Press the set button and then switch from normal to PTC mode. Then turn off the camera and connect the USB cable between the camera and the iPad. Make sure your iPad is turned on and then turn the camera back on and watch your pictures appear on the iPad. This works just fine on my older Canon EOS 10D with firmware 2.0.1
