    Not worth it

    I was hoping to be able to use this for a jump drive (Memory stick, Thumb drive whatevever you like to call it) so that I could put movies on it and take them with me as I travel a lot for work and don't want to have to take my computer with me as well. Jumb drives don't work, and if the memory card isn't formated for a camera (used in a camera) it won't read the card. This is the first Apple product I am truly dissapointed with. I guess I'll have to make sure I have the movies I want with me, iCloud only has 5gb of free storage and I don't feel like paying yearly for more, unless I have no other option...

    Works perfectly

    I bought this product with my ipad 3. What I wanted to do was load RAW files on the ipad from my Canon 7D which only uses compact flash cards. I was a bit concerned about the CCK from other reviews. I spoke to a sales assistant in the Regent Street Apple store and he assured me it would work. I tried with the camera direct to ipad, perfect. Then I tried with my multi-chip card reader , that did not work as the ipad did not have enough power to run it. I ordered a single chip card reader from eBay, perfect again. The largest compact flash card I use is 8GB so I can't be sure if larger ones will work,

    Buyer BEWARE

    Naively bought this, thinking it would be compatible with a Nikon S6200.
    It is NOT as 'the attached accessory uses too much power'.
    The only way round this problem is to take out the SD card & use the 2nd card connector.
    This defeats the whole point of buying a CAMERA connector.
    Caveat Emptor indeed :(

    $30 later..."draws too much power." This is not the Apple I used to know. I hope I can return it.

    Better Off With Photo Transfer App

    This kit only works with a few of my SD cards and will not work with any USB flash drive or USB card reader. It also limits which photos can be transferred and does not allow you to name folders. I find the Photo Transfer App in the Apple app store which allows WiFi transfers to be far superior at a small fraction of the price.

    Completely useless

    This item works with some iPads and not with others. How can Apple sell such an unpredictable product with no hint at point of sale that it could be £25 wasted on completely useless piece of kit ?

    Worked for Me

    I have a first gen iPad and an older Sony camera, went on a trip with both but only 128 MB worth of storage in the camera. Finally found a place that sold the CCK, hooked it up via the USB cable and got the "USB device not supported" message. Frustrated to say the least. Found a post on the Apple customer reviews for the CCK about changing the camera download setting to "PTP", so I did that and it worked just fine. Seems like Apple could have made that a little clearer in the rather skimpy instructions.

    Works 50% of the time

    It worked with a 16gb SDHC class 10 card but doesn't work with a 64gb SDXC class 10 card. For the 64 gb card it keeps saying it cannot read the contents of the card eventhough all my pictures have 8 characters in them and are in a folder called DCIM.

    Convenient and underpowered

    Cannot power a simple card reader. Otherwise it can connect easily to self-powered devices. If you have a powered USB hub, carry that around with you, too. That kind of makes the elegance of this device disappear.

    I'm extremely disappointed! I got this for my birthday and though oh great I can upload photos easy without going through syncing and stuff. WRONG! I used it once and what happens? My photo library with all the photos I've already imported from my PC are gone. I can't find them. So I tried reimporting my photo library the old fashion way... I got half photos and not even all of them. I got 12photos out of the 400 I imported and some of them were half photo half white screen. This is a rip off dont buy this.

    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.

    Does not work

    This adaptor does not work with the iPad 2, all it says is "this connected USB device requires too much power" it doesn't seem that apple support this device anymore on the updated operation platform,

    Do not buy this unit if you have the latest operation system software installed as it will not work. What a con.

    works for new iPad and my Canon cameras!

    The reviews of this Kit are very mixed, so I was concerned. I'm happy to report that the iPad Camera Connection Kit (MC531ZM/A) worked for my equipment: new iPad, Canon S100 camera, and Canon 40D camera. Note that this is the new kit that doesn't have a USB cable.

    The S100 has a 32 GB SD card. The iPad read the SD card both in the Kit card reader and in the camera. I used a USB cable (USB to mini USB) to read directly from the S100 and 40D. No problems. The iPad saw both JPEG and RAW files from both cameras. The 40D has a CF card. I tried using a CF card reader with a USB connection, but the iPad complained, saying that the CF reader took too much power.

    I deducted a star because I had to use my USB-to-mini-USB cable to read directly from the cameras.

    I have updated my iPad 2 to iOS 5.0 and now on iOS 5.1.1 it still doesn't work. Before the update it worked very good. I always see the same sentence:"This accessory is not supported by iPad". I have this problem for a long time but now I decided to write a review. Apple, please make the software update to solve the problem, it will be better to do it before iOS 6.

    Connection kit

    I love these connectors. It is so easy to load my pictures right into my iPad new generation! The pictures are beautiful and easy to do.

    Great for SDHC

    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.

    Works with Canon t4i

    I almost would not have bought the kit based on all the reviews stating it does not work with the current iPad. I called customer service and asked if she can find out if it works with the Canon Ti series. She told me she has a canon rebel herself and it works for her - so I bought it and it does work on the iPad running 5.1.1: connect the USB cable to camera, fire it up and the photo software starts automatically. You can now select, download and delete. When done- just disconnect.
