    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.

    Great device

    • Written by from Edmonton

    I bought this kit back when I got my iPad 1 on release day, and it's been incredibly useful, even downloading RAW files with no problems. I was surprised that it didn't work right away on my iPad3, but then I was trying to read a 64gb card on a 64gb device (saw another user noted same problem). My 16gb card reads with no problems, so I'm assuming there's a problem with potentially reading a device that has more info than your iPad has storage? I'm an apple user for almost 20 years now, so I have faith they will fix this in a future iOS update.

    As for complainers who whine about having to download the images before you can view them full-res, name one device on the planet that allows you to view images full-res without downloading the entire file first... Have realistic expectations, then you won't be disappointed so much.

    SLR to IPad2

    • Written by from port chester

    Ok folks,
    I was having the same issues as a lot of you. On my cannon 20D I was getting the USB doesn't support prompt and on my point and shoot nikon I was getting not enough power prompt when using USB. In the menu of the cannon there is a section in the tools section called communication. The factory setting is normal, change it to PTP. This made the connector work. I used the card reader connector for the nikon and it worked.

    Flip Video recorder won't work

    • Written by from Durham

    I bought this product expecting to be able to download video from my Flip video camera. No dice. I get an error message saying that the accessory (the Flip video) requires too much power, and therefore cannot be connected.

    Just what I wanted

    • Written by from Encinitas

    Must admit that I bought the camera connection kit with trepidation after reading a lot of the reviews. But it works perfectly for what I wanted....the ability to download photos right from the SD card from my Panasonic Lumix camera. It will be perfect for traveling. And connecting my husband's iPhone worked great, too. The only thing that didn't work was the micro card from my Blackberry. But that would have just been a bonus!

    LOVE IT!! My Nikon, iPhone and Sony cameras love it too... :-)

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    This is THE assessory to have if you love photography. Yes, there are apps that allow you to transfer from the iPhone and you can plug into your PC, but it's soooo easy and fast with the photo kit.

    I've loaded photos from my SD card from my Nikon D90. I've used a very small Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo USB reader and the USB connector from this kit to load my Cybershot photos, and I've used the USB connect with my iPhone. The iPad sorts the photos by Date which is GREAT. Having them on the iPad allows for very fun and easy viewing with family, and the ability to make your photos SOCIAL right away. Email, Facebook, Flickr.. edit, color, crop, shape, play with, etc.. I now feel like my photos LIVE and BREATH with new life on the iPad. I LOVE IT!!

    Waste of Money

    • Written by from Laguna Niguel

    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.

    Great Product But PLEASE UPDATE!!!!

    • Written by from Yorba Linda

    Great product for the price. Had no issues connecting my Nikon D60 with the SD card reader adapter to my iPad2. Really helpful in eliminating the computer from the equation and making the iPad self-sufficient.

    APPLE: Please further eliminate the computer from the equation by adding an update that will allow the iPad to recognize an external hard drive/flash drive via the USB Adapter.

    That's it,

    Thanks!

    bad move apple!

    • Written by from Ogden

    Picked this up to upload pictures to my ipad and when I connected it with the usb adapter, it came up with the message that it required too much power... I called the apple store before I bought this and asked specifically if there were any known problems with this adapter and was guaranteed that it would work... all I had to do was plug it in and it would upload my pictures. I am not happy with this and will be returning it to apple. What is frustrating is that I called up the apple store before I bought this and was given incorrect information. Why does apple even sell this when they know it won't work... bad move apple... very bad move!!

    Great to bring on vacation

    • Written by from Carlsbad

    With this camera connector kit, I no longer need to bring my laptop or buy extra SD cards when I go on vacation. I just unload the photos from my camera onto the IPad, and I'm ready to fill up my SD card again. I can later import my photos onto my computer at home from my iPad. I tried both the SD card reader and the USB connector, and both work great.

    BEWARE - videos copied from Canon won't work on iOS3.2

    • Written by from Toronto

    Was keen to get this adapter for our Spring Break trip, hoping to only take my iPad and cameras. JPEG and RAW from a Canon T2I worked OK, as did JPEG from a Canon SD1400. The iPad could copy video files in MOV format from both cameras - it took a long time (3minutes) for a test 100mb file to get copied across, but then wouldn't play the files. The iPad recognized the files as .MOV but would not play and displays a generic MOV icon. I'm running iOS3.2 on an original iPad. Bummed out that I now have to take a laptop on my trip to backup files from my camera.

    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...

    Useless.

    • Written by from Auburn

    The USB connector doesn't support card readers that must draw power from the device, and you can't plug your iPad in because the connector is plugged in where you connect your power cable. Apple, it's ludicrous not to have a USB port on the iPad.

    The SD card connector will not recognize images that are not 8 characters long and in a labeled DCIM folder, which means SD cards from cell phones and other devices will not be supported, unless you reformat the card on a laptop first.

    These are expensive accessories with extremely limited use. Don't buy until you know if they'll perform the functions you require.

    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.

    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 does NOT work with a Nikon D3100

    • Written by from Decatur

    I tried. The Genius Bar guys tried. The camera connection adapter does not make a connection between a DS 3100 and an iPad 2. I have to transfer photographs to my pc and then to the iPad 2. I hope that someone is working on this problem!

    can't enlarge files until after you upload

    • Written by from Sioux Falls

    It would have been great if you could first view your files larger while they are still on the SD card. I can't tell if I want to keep them because you only get a thumbnail view. You must import them all and then delete them.

    Doesn't Work

    • Written by from chesterfield

    I plug in the USB plug (either a camera or another adapter with a USB plug that can read multiple SD, micro cards, etc..) into the adapter and it states "device uses too much power". IT'S QUITE FRANKLY USELESS. I have since purchase an after maket adapter that can reader 5 different sized cards and has a USB plug for 1/5th cost and it works just fine. So if anyone is interested, I have a Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit for very cheap!
