    Not compatible with SDXC


    Works well on standard SD cards but it won't read my new 64 GB Extreme Pro 95 MB/s SDXC card for my NEX-7 with the card reader or the USB connector. Come on Apple you can do better. You are supposed to be on the forefront of technology.

    Please release a new CCK supporting the latest technology available.

    Works perfectly

    I almost didn't by this because of the reviews here. However I bought it and they work just fine. I have an Extreme 8gb Sandisk card that unloaded with no problems whatsoever. The other adapter worked fine as well. I highly recommend this product.

    Fantastic addition

    I was on holiday and completely frustrated by the fact that all my pics were on my camera and I wasn't able to see them on the HD screen of my new shiny iPad. After buying this simple and affordable kit I'm totally amazed by how easy it is to import the pictures from my phone. Just plug it in and go.

    Note: you can only import newly taken pics in the original camera format. It doesn't work if you copy pictures to an SD card and try to import them.

    Waste of money. SDXC DOESN'T WORK

    Not compatible with SDXC, and I thought Apple products just worked. Apple is usually great but this was a waste of money. I am new to photography and all my memory cards are SDXC because it is the newest technology.

    $$$ Camera Kit Scam

    Purchased the camera kit yesterday (6/17/2012) and it was a total bust. I should have read all the reviews before purchasing. It seems apple has decided that OS5 was designed to get you to spend more to Download pictures from your camera. Nice move apple!

    Seriously...? Waste of money!

    So I just connected my camera to my iPad for the first time, and I am also getting the inadequate power message. So I just wasted a bunch of money on a software issue? Apple, I expect so much better from you. All I want is to make room on my camera for more vacation pictures, and now it seems I can't. Wonderful...

    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.

    Worked great for me

    Since I rely on reviews I had read many here some were mixed. I had concerns but went a head with buying the connection kit as it hopefully would fulfill a big need of mine. I cruise a lot and take hundreds of pictures. I always bring my 15" Macbook Pro for email, picture transfer/backup etc. I am looking to eliminate need to take the laptop with me and for that to happen I require a method to backup the photo's off camera card in case of camera loss etc. Turns out using the Ipad as backup coupled, especially with iPhoto app on Ipad makes whole picture thing far more useful that using laptop. Far easier to review and dump photo's don't need and establish the ones to keep.

    Bottom line this connector transferred photos and video fast. I was extremely happy in the transfer process. Simply plugged into Ipad then inserted 16gb Ultra card HC I sandisk. Up popped the thumbnails and options, downloaded, even then offers keep or erase on card option. I kept then did it for next days shots, options complete with option to download all or new etc.

    Worked fine every time! Note the iPhoto app is not needed to transfer that is done with normal Ipad picture functioning, all automatically just plugging in card.

    Came home and for once had already edited down my 350 photo's to 175 thanks to reviewing them on the Ipad. Simply transferred them to my desktop.

    I have a SONY camera which has a mini SD memory in it. I very recently bought the new iPad and I bought this camera kit along with it. When I opened this kit and tried to put mini SD memory of my camera in the kit it did not work. After thoroughly investigating the problem it revealed that yet I had to buy an adapter in order to place mini SD memory in side the kit. This adapter is not part of the kit and has to be bought separately. So be careful to check your camera memory before buying this kit for the IPad. In my opinion the adapter should have been part of kit with little money added in the over all price of the kit.

    Crippled By Apple

    This device USED to work great, until Apple reduced the power to the dock from 100 ma to 20 ma. They did this to try to control what devices people could/could not used with their products. However, now this product is all but USELESS because MANY SDXC cards & USB flash drives WILL NOT WORK with the kit b/c, as many other reviewers have already mentioned, the error message of, "The connected USB device requires too much power."

    Thanks Apple. Thanks a lot. Now I have $30 of worthless plastic and no convenient way to get the things I want on and off of my iPad 2 when away from home. "With Apple, it just works" MY BUM, Tim Cook.

    Importing old photos

    Using the SD card holder or the USB adaptor I can easily import new images, including RAW images, taken on all my family’s cameras: Canon EOS 500D, S100, Ixus 950 IS, Ixus 850 IS, and Olympus Stylus 410. Delight changed to disappointment when I tried to import images downloaded to an SD card from my PC.
    It’s clear that my iPad will only import images conforming to the DCF standard (Design rule for Camera File system) which specifies the partition, folder and file format for camera SD cards. The file name of most of my old images unfortunately does not conform to the DCF standad as they were derived from film scans or had been edited, cropped and renamed at some time. But, simply renaming my old images in DCF format and downloading them to the image folder of a camera formatted SD card enables my iPad to import them. I rename images in the Canon format: IMG_0001.JPG, IMG_0002.JPG etc.

    SD card connector

    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 ?

    Waste of Money

    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.

    so disappointed

    Just bought a Nikon S9300 and the iPad Camera Connector Kit. If one of the two had to fail, I'd choose the connector kit, because it did. "Device requires too much power" or some such nonsense. As if I have to time for this. How do you sell a product that a customer can't use?

    Camera USB Connector doesn't, measure up

    I purchased the camera adaptor for USB and SD cards executing to be Abe to use other USB storage devices with my new IPad 3. Unfortunately it came up with an error message that the device uses too much power, which seems uncharacteristic of an Apple product. Looking into it further it seems that with the
    The iOS 4.2 they reduced the device to 20 Mamp instead of the 100Mamp that it used to accommodate . Since this is the only USB connectivity Apple provides for the IPad , I would hope they will update the firmware in the near future.

    Don't buy it

    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 kit

    This product does not work!!!! Have gone through ALL the turning off/resetting etc etc etc on iPad.....Nada!

    Are Apple listening to their customers, or do we have to put up with being sold inferior products?

    I could not post this review until I rated the product, I didn't want to, but had to give it one star!

    Useful for midi

    With a USB hub I can hook up a keyboard and a controller. Cheaply made for the price and the connection is not secure, as others have noted. Very useful to me, and fun!
