With the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader, it's easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad or iPad mini so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.
After you insert the SD card into the reader, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organizes them into albums. When you sync iPad or iPad mini to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer's photo library.
The Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader supports standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4.

Works as it should
I bought this for my new iPad mini. You should insert the card in the reader, then insert into iPad. No problem with transfer.

Product name is misleading
This should be called "iPad lightning to SD card reader". I went to the apple store in Paris, asked for an SD card reader for my i This should be called "iPad lightning to SD card reader". I went to the apple store in Paris, asked for an SD card reader for my iPhone. I pulled the iPhone out of my pocket, showed it to them and they sold me this. Which doesn't work. Now I'm hundreds of kms away, can't upload photos off my card for my family. Either make the title more explicit, or fix whatever issue is stopping this from 'just working' the way the rest of the Apple family does. Not good enough Apple. If I read 'lightning' and 'SD Card' am I not entitled to assume that a device with a lightning port could use this to read from an SD card? …

1. Put SD card into reader
2. Connect iPad
3. Turn on iPad
4. Photos app automatically opens
5. Click import
SD card photos appear as thumbnails. You have the option to import all or import selected. I didn't see a way to preview full size before import.
After importing the app gives an option to delete the imported photos or keep them.
The photos are now in the iPad. There are folders for last imported and imported.
From my iPad, I can then post to Facebook, Flickr, etc.
Now off to Italy! …
