    In theory it's excellent, in practice...

    I bought this with but one use: to connect my Sony DSCP10 camera. And ever since the iPad was new it's reported this as an unsupported device. Epic fail!

    If you purchase this, try it immediately and if it doesn't just work assume its faulty and return. Don't waste time with power hubs and all those red herrings.

    If it did work, I'd like it to connect with USB flash sticks too, and allow video payout without import, but those wish upon a star hopes with Apple.

    Simply works

    Was put off a bit by some of the negative reviews of this product on here, however decided to give it a go on the grounds that if it did not work it could live with some of the other useless stuff I have bought over the years in the junk drawer.

    CCK arrived today pluged my fujifilm hs20exr in and off it went, worked a treat, tried the cannon eos next again worked like it should after that I tried a small Samsung compact flawless import.

    A very useful addition to my iPad accessories, well done Apple.

    Great product

    After reading some of the other reviews, I was a little nervous about buying this but I have to say that I was not disappointed. I just plugged in my Nikon and the photos download screen popped right up. Worked as expected, great product.

    Not compatible with card reader

    I wanted to transfer jpegs from memory card reader but when I plugged it into this adapter it said used too much power and could not be done. My camera uses a memory card that is too large for the built in slot. This was very disappointing since I now can't add photos easily.

    Can't get it to work with Google Nexus camera jpgs

    As a new user of the iPad 2 I was keen to try out viewing my photos. I bought the camera connection kit and it doesn't work with the Nexus plugged in ( too much power) and it doesn't work when I copied all the jpg images to the SD card - just nothing.

    On a good note it did recognise the jpg images from my canon isus x camera using either USB or SD. Even with the jpg images in the same SD card folder only the canon images are recognised. Hopefully there is some way to convert the images from the nexus to an acceptable jpg size - they are much bigger than those on the canon.

    Requires Too Much Power

    Everything I tried did not work. My iPad 2 would pop up a sign stating that the "Attached Device Required Too Much Power". I went into my cameras settings and turned off the automatic transfer pictures to the PC settings.(Nikon COOLPIX) After I did this, then I could transfer pictures to my iPad. My main reason for buying this was to use memory sticks. I ended up taking it back for a refund.

    Could be better

    I wish I could see the pictures in full screen mode without having to import all the pictures.

    works great …no laptop required

    the SD reader works perfectly. it takes a bit of getting familiar with using the iPad’s Photo app as compared to iPhoto. But once you get over that this hardware lets be travel without my laptop.

    Fantastic!

    I did not know this was available when I first got my iPad and was disappointed there was no easy way to upload my pictures.
    When I found out this was available I was over the moon and I still am. It is fantastic super easy and quick to use. Thanks Apple.

    Won't work

    When I plug my camera into the ipad it says that my device consumes too much power and won't work. This was a gift and it was taken out of its box and the box got thrown away so now I'm stuck with a Camera Connection kit that I can't use. My camera is fairly new purchased in 2010.

    Failed for me too! Waste of $?

    With iPad Camera Connection Kit connected to my iPad 2 w/latest IOS, I also was NOT able to get it to work. I moved Jpeg Pics from camera's SD folder to a DCIM folder on the same SD and still nothing. There was no indication of it being connected or insufficient power as some have stated. It's like the iPad didn't even know it was there. I would've expected Apple to develop & provide a quick resolution.

    IIT WORKS

    Most useful review as voted by users isnt correct - I took a chance bought it as a gift and glad to report it works, no problem at all and highly recommend it. Just need to get one for myself now!

    ipad 2 camera connection kit

    Read the reviews and although some weren't good thought I would take a chance as the kit seemed to be exactly what I needed. It arrived quickly and works like a dream. I used it with my SD card from my Canon SLR and I would recommend it, I think it is compact and does what it says it does, its perfect if you travel a lot. I would give it 5 stars more if it were possible.

    Very disappointed

    The camera connection kit did not work with either of my digital cameras. One is a olympus stylus and the other a sony cybershot. What a waste of time.

    Used to work

    I used to be able to transfer my photos to my ipad2 using both the reader and the usb connection. Not any more. Now it tells me "device is not supported by ipad" Very BAD move on Apple's part. Device is now unusable junk!

    Doesn't work with Sony camera

    Was disappointed when the memory stick didn't work. Now I am very disappointed that the USB connection doesn't work. I bought apple for the simplicity and the reputation for compatibility. No mention of cameras that are not supported, either.

    Works as advertised ... with some help from reviews.

    This product works as advertised for the iPad2, but the instructions are not very helpful (I deducted one star for that failing). I learned more from the product reviews. The USB camera connector worked fine, but the one for the SD card did not. The iPad would not recognize an SDHC card with photo's on it; I tried several ways to connect but was not successful. Then, I read the review, "Had a problem but maybe solved it", posted by LF from Hamilton on Dec 14, 2011. His comment about the DCIM folder solved my problem (thanks, LF). I observed there was a DCIM folder on the SDHC card (I do not know how it was created), saved the photo's from my PC in that folder and connected to the iPad. The photo's showed up immediately and the rest went smoothly.

    Imports images no problem - 1* review by MM is not the whole story

    I have a iPad 2 with OS5, the camera connection kit works fine with my collection of ageing Canons, Kodaks, and Nikons.

    The problem MM reports is only an issue if your camera insists on being powered by the PC when downloading images. Most cameras can be set to do this and thereby save their own battery charge, but most can also be set to not allow this to occur and hence should work fine.

    MM may have one of the few cameras that don't give the user the option, but this will be a very small minority in my experience. So buy with confidence, and if you are one of the unluky few the Apple 40 day return garantee will take care of you (when you by direct from them).

    PS I'm not a Apple agent or even a big fan, just a very pleased user who has found the iPad a very useful way to review his images after a shoot.

    Brilliant travel kit

    Bought this on the way to visit family in the USA. What a brilliant, flawless, intuitive and smart thing. Works great with my iPad 1. No issues. Means I can 'back up' my day's ptotos when I get back to the Hotel, and view them on a reasonable screen. Gradually I am getting to appreciate Mac devices! Haven't tried the usb cable option yet. No need. SD card pops in no trouble.
