    iPad only…

    This product do his job, on iPad, as said.
    But I hardly understand why this device is not compatible with iPhones.
    Is it related to power?

    Will not work with Ipad 3

    I bought this for my Ipad2 and used it one time and it worked. I just tried to use it to upload images from a SD card and absolutely nothing happens. I called Apple for help but got none. Sorry I bought it.

    No video transfer

    I bought this to be able to download still photos and vido files on my trip to Europe. I have discovered it wioll not read the 64GB format SD cards. 32GB works fine, but I can not get any video files to trandfer no matter what size/format card I use.....Not at all what the specs say it will do....very misleading.

    I Love This Product.

    I bought this over a year ago to transfer photos from my Nikon DSLR to my iPad 1 and it worked great. It's so small that it fits in a pocket on my camera strap! I love being able to view all my new photos on the larger screen without having to be attached to a computer or TV.

    Now I have an iPad 3 and it's even better! Much faster and with a lot better picture. I haven't used the USB adapter, but I've never had any problems with the SD reader.

    The ipad camera connection kit no longer works

    I have been using the ipad camera connection kit to import photos from a cf card reader and it has been working fine. After the latest update it no longer imports into an album. I know not all card readers work but this one did in the past. I am going to try connecting directly from the camera but it is not my preferred method. I also don't want to synch from iTunes and my mbp. What has changed? I need this to work.

    Issue with importing digital pixs with connector

    IMHO, memory cards with capacity larger than 2 gigabytes are problematic. Maybe the new iOS fixed that. Also the CF should not be used as external disk storage device with Macs or PCs prior to interfacing with iPad. iOS might get confused and refuse to import pixs. Other than that, it's indispensable especially when traveling without a laptop.

    Camera Scam!

    I ordered this and found that the SD card reader works great, but the USB port connection does not work with my iPad. When I plug it into the iPad all that happens is a note comes up on my screen and says, "This accessory does not work with iPad. OK." To me it might just be a fluck, but I really wnated to be able to connect my iPhone 4 to the iPad to get my pictures off of that. On the other side, mine works without a flaw through the the SD card reader. I hope that your Camera Connection Kit works better than mine.

    Camera Connection Kit works great!

    I was also worried about whether I should purchase this, due to the bad reviews, but after reading the post from "Balazs L" from Seattle, I decided to pull the trigger. I tested it on the Canon 20D (in Menu -> Communication -> PTP mode) and Canon PowerShot SD780 IS and the new iPad and it works flawlessly. Each camera was connected directly to the new iPad and I did not use a card reader. Great product and I will not be taking my Macbook Pro on vacation; just the cameras and the new iPad.

    It Just Works

    I hesitated to buy this product because of a lot of negative reviews I read but it worked flawlessly. I have a new 3rd generation iPad updated to iOS 5.1. I also have a Canon Powershot G12 camera. I followed the instructions that came with the connection kit. I turned on the iPad and plugged in the mini USB device. I turned on the camera and set it to view the photos. I plugged my camera USB cable into the camera and then into the device. The photo app opened with "Camera" as one of the folders and thumbnails of the over 200 photos on my camera appeared within seconds. No drivers to download or software to install. It was quick and easy. I selected a few photos to import and in a few seconds I had high quality camera photos to show off on my iPad. This will be very useful on trips. I love the way Apple products just work!

    Allows GarageBand connection to a mid keyboard

    The card reader with an Ipad2 works with my Panasonic DMC-TZ20. The USB connector also allows me to play into GarageBand on the Ipad from an electronic piano through an additional midi to USB connector.

    "Not Recognized Device"

    Tried using this to snag images off my Canon 5D and got that error message. Total waste of money. Anything camera related with Apple tends to be (unless it's the camera on your 4s). Pretty frustrating.

    Good, Almost Great, Not Quite There

    Superficially it's a great little tool this. My feelings:

    Pros:
    * Simple to use
    * Intuitive
    * Definitely Useful

    Cons:
    * Wish it was one device instead of two.
    * If you have even a single duplicate file name, it can't find any of the files. (Had 300 photos, told me I didn't have any because of less than 10 duplicate file names. A batch rename solved the problem)
    * All images have to be in a DCIM folder. Wish there was a manual that could have told me that.
    * As always, Apple products are sold at a premium.

    All of the above are largely minor complaints, except for point 2.

    Would recommend if you, like me, move a lot of photos around on a semi-regular basis.

    Great product

    I purchased this product from a bestbuy and it worked flawlessly. Tried both attachments with my Canon powershot A2000 iS and everything loaded right up on my iPad2. Including videos I shot with my camera. Great product.

    Perfect for Nikon D90

    I was worried it won't work after reading the reviews..but it works GREAT for my DSLR Nikon D90... forget the negative reviews.. You should always try the product yourself 'cause you can always return if it doesn't work for you.. Glad I got it.. I don't need to bring my laptop on my trip, just my new ipad 3 and this ipad camera connection kit.. Travel light :)

    Don't believe the guy who said it doesn't work with iPad 1 - it does!

    I bought the camera connector kit as soon as it was available for my iPad 1, and it worked perfectly as I spent 3 weeks in 2010 traveling from Rome to deep Sicily and back with my D300. I didn't trust it was storing files as NEFs, but it was - and with Photogene, I was editing and emailing back great images. Now I have an iPad 3 and a Nikon D7000, and it does fabulous job of transferring both NEF and MOV videos to my new marvel.

    No Worries.

    I tried the SD card reader for the first time today. Just happened that the first card I laid hands on contained 156 Leica M8 raw images, each 10 Mb in size. Everything - card reading, sending to Photo Stream, pictures arriving on my iMac via Photo Stream - worked perfectly, if rather slowly. I never use the camera connection cable, so that half of the kit is redundant and untried.

    The price is a bit high for an SD card reader these days, so only 4 stars.
