    Canon EOS ( Rebel ) T1i / T2i

    I didnt see this anywhere so i thought i would let Canon T1i owners know the USB works well and the video importer is quick. This lets you hookup and - import and play video quickly for people at events and right-now sharing off the iPad 2 to Airplay on APPLE TV. Hence event photographers can shoot and share in moments out to big screens with the iPad 2 and a Canon T1 / T2 - fix them up in iphoto and slideshow it off the ipad while you walkabout and shoot more.

    Your photo/Video will be in a new Last Import folder... so the Photo Stream delete problem is not there and its quick to load/decide/delete as a result. Hence , i can carry the AppleTV and ipad in my gigbag and go live/vjmix the event with no help or second man required. Card swap works too. No downside. iPhone4s is almost automated fast also.

    This is not working!

    I can't save anything on SD card, Not every digital camera works with this device. it's read only solution (when it works). I can't understand why is so difficult to install a SD card slot?!

    Apple! Please listen to your customers and accommodate what they request. They are the people who pay you hard earned money.

    Does exactly what it's suppose to

    Bought this a few months ago to input photos from an SD card and it does exactly what it's suppose to. Maybe a little expensive but was very impressed that I bought something that was easy to use and worked straight away.

    Absolutely brilliant!!

    Worked straight out of the box and transferred all my photos from a Nikon D40 to iPad2. Read the few negative comments, but bought it happy in the knowledge of having a good guarantee from Apple. Love it!! Thanks Apple.

    Sony camera connection problems with iPad2

    I have a Sony DSC-HX9V camera that downloads easily with my desktop Mac and Macbook via the USB. Now that I have an iPad2, I hoped that it would be as easy! Unfortunately not - although I can use the SD card reader, that means removing it from the camera to do so. The memory card is something easy to lose or damage! Does anyone know how to get the USB connector side to work? Everytime I try, the iPad tells me that the camera "requires too much power". The local Sony rep and Apple people can not offer advice or solace!

    Oh Well

    My camera uses Smart Media Cards. USB will not work without a driver, can't even use it on PC anymore.

    Works sometimes

    Mine used to work before the ios5 upgrade. Now, always says USB device not supported. Sometimes when I go to iPhoto's the camera will show, other times not. If I power down it seems to help! Frustrating for sure.

    Worked for me...

    Despite the various differences of opinion on this product, I took the plunge and found the product worked! I imported photos from:
    Nikon s8000 camera connection
    Olympus uTough camera connection
    Fuji finepix s2500hd
    SDHC class 10
    4gb SD card class 4
    Sandisk sd and transcend sd cards were tested using the sd adapter

    Packaging errr very small but then so are the units. Only downside as others have mentioned is the price.

    Be sure to set your camera to USB Connect - PTP or PictBridge

    Having read a lot of reviews here, I was a little nervous about buying this item, but I live pretty close to an Apple store so it wouldn't have been a big deal had I needed to return it. I actually intended to try it right in the store so I could return it immediately if need be, but stupidly left my camera cable at home (duh). I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-T9, which uses a Memory Stick Pro Duo card, and thus needs to connect via USB. The Apple sales guy was certain that the kit would work with my particular camera, so I bought the kit and headed home.

    I read the (skimpy) brochure, then plugged all the bits together -- and got a message that my device wasn't supported. I pulled everything apart, put it all together again, same thing. Had the sales guy not been so insistent that it WOULD work with a Sony Cybershot, I might have returned it immediately.

    BUT - sat with camera in hand for a minute, cable still plugged in, and started exploring options on the camera. I did already have the switch correctly pushed over to the setting where it needs to be in order to transfer pix to a computer. I hit the Menu button, and was given the choice of USB Connect or Folder. I selected USB Connect. I then was given the choice of PictBridge, PTP, Mass Storage, or Auto.

    Given that the little brochure said this item works with cameras that support Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), it seemed like a no-brainer to select PTP. As soon as I did that -- everything woke up, and thumbnails of all my photos started appearing on my iPad.

    Mindful of folks who said their connection kit worked once but not subsequently, I've hooked it up and unhooked it a few times. As long as I have my camera set to USB Connect - PTP, my iPad recognizes the camera, without fail.

    The other options for USB Connect on my camera are PictBridge, Mass Storage, and Auto. Auto and Mass Storage result in an error message on the iPad saying the device isn't supported. BUT - Everything works perfectly when I set the camera to PictBridge or PTP.

    I read a bunch of the most recent review of this kit and didn't see any mention of this kind of tweak to the camera settings as a solution. I'm willing to bet that many users who are getting the unsupported device error would find their problem solved if they checked their camera settings, as I did.

    Supports CF Card Based Cameras

    Normally I'm not a reviewer, but I noticed a review containing incorrect information and was hoping to help if I could. I have multiple cameras, two of which are high/er end Nikon and Canon DSLR's. Both store images on CF (Compact Flash) cards. I have never had any problem using this camera connection kit with my iPad, because both cameras are also equipped with USB interfaces and came with the cables that connect those interfaces to USB ports. Using those cables and the USB interface provided with this kit I can plug my camera directly into my iPad and transfer photos without removing the CF cards from my cameras; works like a charm. Obviously double check your own camera before taking anyone's word, but USB interfaces are fairly standard on all camera models so you shouldn't have any issues with this kit regardless of what type of memory card your camera uses. To be honest I rarely use the SD card interface option, but that's more my preference to leave the smaller memory card in its respective camera so I can't lose it. Bottom line, I would and more than likely will purchase this kit again.

    Doesn't Quite Fit

    Bought this for my iPad2 but it doesn't seat in the port fully. The original iPad had a flat edge where the port is, the iPad 2 is tapered. Because of this you cannot fully seat the connector. I had to restart the import process SEVEN times on a recent trip because the connector kept slipping out of the iPad. Other than that I have had no problems.

    No CF option - Not True!!

    Just read here that someone was complaining this adapter does not support CF which is true, but if you want to copy pic from high end camera to iPad or ipad2. Just use the USB from your camera to the adaptor. Simple as that. Dun even know why u complaining and misleading other people.

    I have an Nikon and also Canon 5D Mark II. Import pis and HD video clips without any problem.

    No need for Compact Flash Card Supprot

    To the user who posted a review bellow saying this accessory was the reason he could not buy an iPad.
    You are wrong!
    Yes this accessory does not support compact flash cards.... but it does support USB.
    I use a Canon 5d Mark 2 and can 100% confirm that you can plug that in via usb and download your photos to your iPad.
    Whilst I do not use Nikons I would assume its the same since my Canon and iPhone both work fine over USB.
    Please actually look at, and try the products before reviewing, since this comes with USB there is no need for a dedicated CF slot since the majority of cameras us SD and those who don't use SD can use USB.
    If you have a 'serious' DSL then it won't be small, and carrying a USB cable around will make no substantial difference to the size or wait, and since ur carrying a laptop anyway I'm guessing you already need to carry the USB cable.

    Read product descriptions before posting negative reviews that just aren't helpful.

    Great product from Apple as usual

    Received this camera connection kit today. So far I trialled both connections ( camera and SD card) and had no issues with either. Very simple to use. Pretty much does th task itself apart from selecting pictures to transfer. Fantastic product !!!!!!!

    No CF option - not useful to me

    To provide a SD option for the masses is fine but if you use a high end camera, you are most likely to have a CF (compact flash) card. My Nikon is such a camera. I was looking at purchasing an IPad to replace the Dell laptop that I carry around to download my pictures on. Well, the IPad is not an option. I have an IPhone and an IMac and am now stuck with a Dell Windows PC for now. When that goes my option will be anything but an IPad because the CF card is not supported. That is disturbing as I am an Apple convert and was really looking forward to dumping my PC for a more elegant solution.
