    First apple product I disliked, was not about it, and wished it had worked

    Purchased this a a part of my road warriors kit that I felt wound make all the difference in storing my photos on the go and posting them online. Soon found that was not to be the case, as when I wanted to to use either the camera connection or the ad card slot, newer functioned as advertised. I exchanged them thinking it was perhaps a one off, but found the same issue with my next set, and simply returned them soon after. I have an abiding respect for most apple products but this one has not worked out as planned.

    Works great for me

    Despite all the horrible reviews on the camera adapter kit, I've had no trouble with it at all. I have a Nikon Coolpix S8100 and use a Sandisk Ultra 2 SD card. Both connect without any problems whatsoever. Quality is great. Pictures look great and I love being able to go from camera to ipad to airplay on my big screen in minutes. I would give this item a full 5 stars, but I must admit I was irritated at the fact that I had to buy yet another accessory to be able to fully enjoy my $700 ipad.

    Totally Dissapointed.

    I tried using these out of the box, on my first gen ipad. Never once did my ipad open the photo app. It would not recognize my 2 Fuji cameras, or Flip video camera, Would not accept images off of a USB flash drive, saying the device "requires too much power", even on a 100% charge. I tried 2 separate SD cards. One got the response "may have corrupted files", and another that was perfectly functional showed no response at all. Unhappy with purchase.

    Worked right out of the box.

    I'll never have to take another laptop on vacation again... just a camera and my ipad. Love it.

    iPad 2 and Canon EOS 5D

    Just returned from a week of thorough testing. The iPad returned a not supported message when connected directly to the camera's USB port, but read a Zios CF card reader every time.

    Using the SD card reader for pictures taken with a Canon point-and-shoot was easy as well.

    The more I use my iPad 2 the lore I like it. I finally added some music from my computer library and audio books bit wasn't able to add pictures, UGH? Then I re-read the directions more carefully and found that I needed to purchase the camera connection kit, wow, even more $$$. But I bit the bullet and bought the kit. I had saved pictures from my computer library to a microSD card so I put the adaptor into the iPad and nothing happened! I tried several times then tried another, identical adaptor and received an error message that the pictures couldn't be transferred.
    Not to give in, I pulled up this website and found the trouble.... you can't download modified pictures! What a bummer! So I went back to my computer, downloaded the pictures I wanted to see on my iPad back onto my camera, then attached the camera to the iPad and they transferred. Much more work than I wanted to do, but got the job done.
    Then I wanted to add pictures I had not taken so I pulled up the pictures in my library/folder and took a picture with my camera. Then I connected the camera to my iPad and transferred them. The quality isn't as good, obviously, but I was able to get the pictures I wanted onto my iPad.
    Again, that was more work than it needed to be for the high-tech iPad, so I echo the entries that say Apple needs to help us out and let us get our pictures onto our iPad's!

    Failed right out of the package

    USB Adapter did not recognize my SD cards UNTIL I moved the SD card's "LOCK" switch to "LOCKED". Only then did iPad display a message: "Card May Be Damaged". Tried it with multiple SD cards.

    CAMERA Adapter displayed this message: "Accessory not available, uses too much power". Huh? The camera battery was fully charged, my iPad was fully charged.

    I'm taking it back to my friendly Apple store in Honolulu.

    Don't spend your money on this!

    What what my iPad needed

    I've been using the card reader a lot. This makes transferring pics from my camera so easy, because syncing with my laptop is a pain. It works fast, and I like that they have the option to delete the items on the media card after importing to the iPad.

    Works just about as expected

    Both connectors work with most cameras and external devices, however IT would be nice to allow thumb drives to connect so that when we don't have a computer or we are in an area of the world without mobile data /3G/4G, we can access our info. Currently this is not possible with the limitations in iOS4x. Also if you happen to be using DACs there have also been issues using async usb output from the device due to current restrictions.

    Camera connection kit

    I have loaded pix from my SD card, then added more pix to the card. Now the iPad 2 will not auto load the pictures from the SD card. I see no way to push the iPad to read the SD card.

    Doens't work at all

    I bought the connectioin kit and tried it with an SD card. It's fails with the message that the device is incompatible. With the SD in the camera then: it fails, it uses too much power. A usb thumb drive? It fails. a usb harddrive with it's own power? it fails, because the device uses too much power.
    Don't buy it, it is useless.

    Apple has done it again!!

    This product is just AMAZING!!!! I just got them and they work super well! I am so happy that they are a good price! If it was me, I probably would have priced it about $20 more! They are wonderful because I want to have all my pics on my iPad, but its a nuisance to carry around by any body of water, and it's more likely to get stolen. But with the cam connection kit, I don't have to bring it anywhere where I want to take pics! I can just bring my camera. Get this if you are afraid of dropping and breaking your iPad, getting it wet, or getting it stolen! TRUST ME! It's worth the $30!!!!!

    Works Perfectly!

    After reading a lot of mixed reviews, I was even more confused than Einstein creating his theory of relativity. All bad reviews are actually not because of the product being faulty or its functionality being faulty rather the bad reviewers either have bad quality SD cards which iPad doesn't recognize or they have bad cameras which do not connect . I have tested a Transcend 32GB SD HC Class 10 card and a Toshiba 8GB SD HC Class 4 card, both of them worked perfectly. The camera I connected to the kit was a Canon 60D Digital SLR and what luck didn't give me any problems at all too. So to conclude the kit works as described in the store without any regrets I love the accessebility it offers on the go. Btw I tested the kit on an iPad 2nd generation so people who have written bad reviews about this kit might have an older iPad or an older software version. I suggest before rating anything people should at least check if their iPad isn't at fault. i would give it 6 stars if possible as I'm a professional photographer and this kit lowers the weight of my total baggage by around 40% and removes the need to carry a laptop everywhere when iPad is such appropriately sized.

    Fails the popular Cybershots...in part.

    I have Cyber-Shot DSC-W100, 8.1 MP; transfers as expected.

    Wife has one-year-later model Cyber-Shot DSC-W230, 12.1MP; doesn't work on her iPad.

    We also have a new Nikon D5100; doesn't work on her iPad (works fine on mine).

    Both iPads software up to date, charged, reset; both cameras set to transfer properly (even used all 3 transfer options on wife's camera). Later model version is either 'not recognized' or doesn't even register as plugged into iPad despite best efforts, including the use of the HD card adapter and PNY 8GB, 20M/Bs card. All cameras transfer effortlessly to Dell Studio and Dell Netbook.

    Could be iPad receiver plug on wife's iPAd but it charges and updates no problem. Refund to store imminent, after stop to troubleshoot there.

    Great accessory, one recommendation

    Love the sd card reader AND the USB connector; however, due to the size of the Nikon files, it would be much more helpful if we were able to view the files BEFORE importing them to the iPad 2...and I haven't found a way to do that with other than thumbnails. Help, please. Thanks.

    Very happy

    Works as described, would be brilliant if it worked with other memory cards not just SD but otherwise amazing

  • 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Doesnt work ok

    If you dowload the photos in yor pc first, the ipad wont recognize them later. You have to put your sd card first at the ipad cammera conector and then you can use your sd card in your pc.... Thats a little disgusting the first time. Its not so simple. Sometimes also you have toput the connector two or more times to start the process.

    amazing results

    I bought this so we could down;oad our photos of Hokkaido and it worked flawlessly every time with two different cameras one Sony Cybershot and my Nikon L110. every day we uploaded all our photos to the Ipad then uploaded them to the cloud using dropbox for our friends and relatives. It worked as advertised I am very happy with it.
