    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

    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.

    Card reader not working ?

    Purchased the card reader 1week ago worked fine first time,very impressed but second time I tried it,it wouldn't work,read reviews about all the problems people were having so thought I had bought a useless piece of rubbish.Took it back to HMV(who were very helpful)and tried about 10 more card readers all of which didn't work.Then took iPad to John Lewis where it was purchased from, they tested card reader on demo unit which worked fine so they diagnosed a faulty iPad.They swapped my iPad for a new one and hey presto everything works a treat!
    a brilliant piece of kit

    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.

    Does NOT work with video camera

    I bought this so I could directly download our dog show videos to the iPad for viewing. Says there is not enough power to run the device. Don't buy this if you want to download video direclty from the camera. Since that is the only thing I wanted to directly download to the iPad, it is pretty useless to me.

    Useless for CF cards

    I have a DSLR camera and wanted to be able to download photos to my iPad but I can use any card readers cause it's says the reader draws to much power and I can't connect my camera directly because it's unsupported...why bother having this product if you can't even use it for USB devices. Incredibly disappointed and would not have purchased if I knew CF card readers weren't supported.

    Ipad2 & sony cyber shot

    The connector kit was a great gadget for initially uploading 800+ photos from a sony cyber shot......until i wanted to repeat the process a few weeks later. I get an error message "device uses too much power" every time. I have plugged and unplugged the usb, camera and connector kit in every order possible multiple times to no avail. The ipad has been reset and the camera battery is fully charged and still nothing. What a waste.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit worth the money!

    What a great buy! There were six of us on a cruise - I used the attachment to download everyone's photos from their SD card to my iPad every day, and at the end of the trip everyone got a CD with ALL of the vacation photos and videos. Made it very easy to share the whole library. Helpful hint - if you do this, integration is easier if you make sure everyone's camera is set to the same date/time - makes it much easier to organize photos.

    works kinda well

    seems the usb option will not work with any camera that:

    1) doesn't have a usb port
    2) has a rechargible battery in it that can be recharged by means of usb port.. current draw ill be too high for the ipad.
    3) a usb card reader that has a light on it or requires special power needs (like all of them).
    only one style that can be speculated that will work if it has its own power plug to give power to the usb reader.. or possibly use a powered usb port multiplier to see if it can work with the ipad.. dont have one.. but someone out there try it and post your results if you happen to have one.

    the sd card reader seems to work quite nicely for those cameras that use sd cards.. unfortunaely some of my cameras use either picturefx cards or cf cards.
    havent tried any of the sdxc style cards yet.

    Sony Cyber-Shot not compatible

    A great product that we used when traveling across the USA. The one item that is deceiving in the write up....it does NOT work with the Sony Cyber-shot point and shoot camera. It worked with my old Nikon camera but NOT with our brand new Sony Cyber-shot. When we looked up the information online, it confirmed that the product & Sony CS were not compatible.

    Awesome product!!

    A great accessory for anyone using their iPad for photos. (Which is just about everyone!) Best accessory I have purchased for any of my iOS devices.

    I recommend this highly!

    Dead useful little gadget

    What will they think of next! Just picked this up for my iPad 2 and I am so happy with how easy it is to 'lock and load'...I used the USB cable connection for both direct to the camera and a card reader for another external memory card. Worked perfectly! I love being able to bypass my PC to load just a few pictures to the device. Now, WHY can't this thing also be compatible with iPods and iPhones? That would be perfection.

    Lets state the obvious...

    I'm a huge Apple fan, with that said, why don't iPad users have the ability to plug a usb flash storage (thumb drive) into our iPads and transfer files? The only reason I can see is that Apple doesn't want to give up the ability to sell 3 different iPads based on storage size. Come on Apple, please get back to making devices that made your customers completely happy, not just a little happy. For this reason, I will only give 2 stars to this adapter set.

    Perfect accessory for photographers

    I recently used the Camera Connection Kit to upload over 800 photos to my iPad2. It took very little time and worked flawlessly. One of the best buys I've made and perfect for any photographer.

    Useful, no fuss, and small

    I have owned the Connection Kit for a few months now. The USB interface has turned out to be more universal than the SD card interface. My camera can be accessed with both but I prefer to pop out the SD card because there is no fumbling with a cable and plug. But recently, while on vacation, I wanted to transfer pictures from other cameras and they used an xD card. I did not have a cable so was dead in the water. Yesterday I bought a USB-A to both mini-B and micro-B cable from iGo. This adapter is about the same size as one of the interfaces so is a nice match. I know there are still cameras that don't use a standard USB plug but I am closer to universal access now.

    In all cases that I have used these interfaces with SD cards and cameras, they simply work. When tried on my iPod touch 4th generation or with other USB devices, I get an error message. Fair enough.

    Works for Canon G12 & SanDisk SD cards

    After reading all 87 reviews I decided to purchase this from a store, where I could try out both of the connectors before buying (much to the amusement of the staff in the Currys / PCWorld store).

    I’ve a Canon Powershot G12 and use SanDisk memory cards (1Gb); iPad2 is running 4.3.5.

    Both connectors worked first time; the transfer speed from the SD card was very quick, and only slightly slower using the cable. Hope they continue to work so well.
