    Works perfectly with my Canon Eos Rebel T3

    I purchased the CCK to edit pics on the go and to get them off of my camera (Canon Eos Rebel T3) without having to tote around my laptop. Works like a charm and very user friendly like all Apple products I've purchased. I read the reviews and was skeptical at first not knowing if my camera was compatible. No issues at all.

    No longer recognised by iPad

    Can only assume an iOS update has made this item redundant so surprised that this is still available for sale. Our camera hasn't changed but the device is now shown as an unrecognised accessory. Glad we tested before heading away again.

    Does what its meant to

    Bought this to use with my iPad 2 then bought the Lightning adapter so I could use it with my newer iPad Mini. It works every time, picks up all the SD and SDHC cards I've tried with it and transfers reasonable quickly.

    I shoot with a number of cameras and having this is a great way to make quick edits on the go, email images and upload to forums/FB etc. App such as Snapseed and PS Touch are fantastically powerful and the fact the iPads handle most RAW files straight out of the camera means I don't need to convert them to jpegs first. With the Mini being neat enough to stuff in a camera bag and carry everywhere I have found this kit invaluable when I don't have access to a laptop but want to edit a photograph.

    Five stars and a happy customer.

    great product

    works great with my ipad just a shame apple couldnt allow it users of iphones to have the same use
    wouldve been a lot easier to transfer photos to iphone for display than go through the whole itunes route , which is a pain to say the least
    along with app price rises , apples heading down the wrong path , cheaper to by magazines at newsagency in australia than purchase on the iPad

    Extremely poor experience

    In the past this product worked a few times, but whether the product failed or one of the iOS upgrades removed software support for the device, it no longer works. I plug the device in and then plug in an SD or SDHC card and "Photos" opens...but all it shows is the photos already on my iPad, and there is no menu option or popup to import photos or select photos for import from the SD card. Totally pointless. Either it is an unreliable device or it is unsupported by the most recent release of iOS...either way it is a waste of money.

    Wish I had this sooner

    I received this product from the Apple online Store for my Ipad 2 version 7.0.6. I plugged my Canon 7d into the USB connector. It immediately recognized the camera and allowed me to import all of my photos or to select the ones I wanted. Worked flawlessly! I wish I would have had this product on my recent trip to India.

    Nice surprise: It works with an iPhone and GarageBand

    I wasn't expecting this to work when I acquired it with a USB musical keyboard but I can confirm that the USB part of this set works with an iPhone 4 running iOS v7.1 connected to an M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 and GarageBand. So cool!

    Doesn't do what is says on the tin

    Don't waste your money on this connector kit as it doesn't operate as you would expect. Total waste of money, so much so that I use a Samsung Tab now and have given the iPad to my wife, who leaves all the techie stuff to me. Apple, you're a BIG disappointment!

    Great until iOS 7

    Used to be fantastic for viewing images on the go (read from SD card). A card full of images would read in seconds and indicate raw+jpeg in the photos app. Since upgrading to iOS 7(ipad 3) read speed has dropped by an order of magnitude or two and is effectively unusable with a card containing more than a few tens of images. I'm not sure if the problem occurs with jpegs only but if like me you like to shoot raw (+jpeg) you're likely to have the same problem. Not recommended until Apple (hopefully) fix the issue in iOS 7.1.

    The card reader works well enough but not with any of my USB cards. They all produce the error message that they draw too much power. This means that only half the kit works and this should have been made clear by Apple in its sales literature, in which event I would not had made the purchase.

    A great iPad accessory

    Before I write the review, I did not give it 5 stars because:
    1. Still no similar device for iPad Air, had to buy the pin to lightning adapter.
    2. Neither supports the iPhone nor imports photos from the iPhone (it might though, I did not try, really).
    3. Only SD card and USB support. What about say, micro?

    It is a great device, great design and classy. Works with iPad 2, 3, Air just fine. It is very light, easy to use, no extra set-up needed. A tad expensive but worth it if you are a serious photographer.

    Camera connection kit - finally got it to work

    Initially I had no response or recognition from the iPad that the kit was attached and I therefore thought it wasnt working. Read the feedback on this site and thought "oh well, win some lose some". Talked to others, some with similar experience and then a suggestion led to me trying it again. Eureka! Success.

    1. Make sure camera is set ot communicate using PTP protocols. IMPORTANT, otherwise you may get a message that your camera is not supported.
    1. Plug it in, connect camera or insert card.
    3. WAIT. It takes up to 1 minute for the iPad to recognise it.
    4. Once recognised, iPad opens photo app with "import" at bottom.
    5. WAIT. It takes MORE time to download thumbnails. I had 1000+ and hadn't waited long enough; needed about 5 minutes. Sometimes this is the first feedback you get that things are working.
    6. Using SD Card is faster than USB Camera connect and load thumbnails.

    Good luck - hope this helps.

    who lets a software update alienate a large number of users

    I recieved an Ipad 64g for xmas because of apple's support for musicians just to find out the connection method they use (camera connection kit) is no longer supported when I upgraded to the latest software what an incredible way to treat customers

    IPad 3 and Camera Connection Kit - Next level of paid photography

    I am a freelance advertiser and commercial photographer and using the Camera Connection Kit with my iPad 3 ("new" iPad") has been seamless and priceless up to this point. It has allowed me and other photographers to work with clients and view our work on scene like has never before been possible even 5 years ago.

    I am worried that upgrading to iOS 7 will ruin it for me so I have not updated my device yet, but apps are switching to it and I will need to catch up eventually.

    Can Apple or someone give me a definitive answer.

    CCK (30 pin) WORKED PERFECTLY FOR ME ON 1/4/14

    After reading many reviews that the CCK did not work after the iOS 7 upgrade, I tried one anyway on my iPad 2. As soon as a 2GB SD card was plugged into the adapter, Photos opened and easily imported all the pix. Also, contrary to earlier warnings about subfolders, the pix were taken with a Panasonic camera that creates a subfolder within the DCIM folder - that was not a problem for my import either. Perhaps the reason the CCK works for me is that my version of iOS is the most current - 7.04.

    No problems with a 3rd Generation iPad running iOS7

    Several people have complained about this not working with an iPad 3rd Generation or iOS7. I've found it to work quite well. You connect and it shows up under iPhoto and you can import the photos or video you wish. In iPhoto, you do have to go into 'Albums' and then to "Last Import' or 'All Imported' to find the photos or video that you input to your iPad. Also, please give a moment for the upload to complete.

    If there was a problem, it's been fixed. If someone still finds a problem, they should call tech support.

    Hardware: iPhone 5, 3rd Generation iPad both running iOS7

    Do not buy this product it does not work with new iOS.

    I have an iPad2 with retina display. This worked with iOS 6 but now that I was forced to up date iOS it no longer works. I just get the message that this accessory is not supported. Even though it was before and is made for my model? Call apple and get the long run around if I by the latest iPad air and a new adaptor it might work. I think apple has gotten so big they really don't give a dam about the stuff they make. Time to give Microsoft my business again. At least my new surface has a working usb for any type of peripheral.

    Not that useful.

    It only supports upto SDHC so i can use my 16gb, but not 64gb sd card.

    It is already becoming an old obsolete product.

    Also for usb, i was expecting to connect usb drive or usb card reader. Neither worked.
    My ipad said it's drawing too much power.

    So, USB port is not that useful, as you can only connect camera and iphone only.

    I am still using IOS6
