    Purchased this kit and cannot get IPAD to even react to the kit being plugged in. I even had a friend try using the kit, but he ended up having the same results. Nothing. Tried different formats thinking that was the problem, but nothing (different formats) would make the IPAD recognize the device.

    Would not recommend anyone buy this IPAD Camera Connection Kit. I consider it a waste of good money spent on a piece of junk that does not work.

    Would not have given one star if I had the option.

    Gets the job done

    After uploading RAW pics to mac then editing, I had to export the edited .jpg files to the same exact folder, 102ND800, the camera uses to store the files on the memory card. I am using Nikon D800 with Sandisk Extreme Pro 8gb UHS-1. The ipad would not recognize the reader if it wasn't in the exact folder the camera writes too.

    does not work with newer SD cards.....

    well, I use this to connect directly via USB cable to my Nikon D600 which works just fine. But I prefer to use the SD card slot instead which does not work with my new 64 GB Sony Class 10 SDXC cards - what's up with that Apple?
    Older cards work fine (e.g. 8 GB Transcend Class 6 SDHC)

    Works, but not really

    i've used this for a while now, and it was good, once you change a few settings

    my camera needs to set video format to MP4, with my sony nex3n could do, which allowed me to import videos. (default settings wouldn't allow me to import)

    also, importing photos in the photo app was easy, and clean. unfortunately, you cant view photos until you have imported them. thankfully, in the albums, it auto creates "last imported" and "all imported" which makes it SUPER easy to view imported files

    the BAD

    UHS-1 cards dont seem to work, (those new fast ones... i can understand the speed not being there, but the fact that it wont import or read the UHS-1 cards at all is sad...

    other thoughts
    dropbox wont auto uploaded imported files,
    google+ doesn't
    shoebox does,
    photostream does

    ALWAYS keep imported files. the chances are, it wont be auto backed up from ur ipad.
    back it up on ur desktop

    final thoughts
    Great, until i bought a 64gb ADATA class 10 UHS-1 card, and it didn't work... but it was on sale, and had a great price, didn't want to return it. but i feel like i have to use my class 4 sd card just cause i can view it easier on my ipad.

    Works perfectly!

    I bought this kit for my flip hd, after plugging in the camera the iPad said "this device uses to much power" and i was quite put off. I looked online everywhere and everyone said the kit doesn't work for the flip cameras and at that moment i realized the flip hd takes 3 triple a batteries, i put them in and the videos loaded onto my iPad. Love this kit

    Importing video from Sony RX100 to iPad 4

    Have tried Apple's SD Card Reader and USB Camera Adaptor. Receive error messages using both with no luck at all in terms of importing video to my iPad. Apple seem bereft of advice to customers and I'm left wondering why spend all that money on an iPad when you can't use it to import video for uploading to sites like YouTube? It would be funny if it wasn't so frustrating. Does anyone have an answer?

    The best way to import photos

    Bought this product so I could import and upload photos from my Samsung NX when travelling, and it works perfectly !! I always import photos via SD-card and the import with the camera connector is even faster and easier than on the computer !
    I bought it although I had my concerns because of all the negative reviews, but I am positively surprised !
    There might be a problem with it, if you connect your camera and it demands the USB as a power source, but what is the problem with using your SD card ?

    Totally Useless

    I have just tried to transfer my photos from my Samsung Camera to my IPad using the camera connection kit and recd a message advising that the accessory is not supported and that my camera uses too much power, thus I cannot transfer my photographs. What a total waste of money and even more disappointingly that I cannot save my photos to my IPad. Total disregard from Apple to their customers, totally outrageous, but yet they get away with it. How can I rate one star for an unusable product, it should be rated zero stars.

    Apple has lost the plot

    I'm becomnig increasingly more frustrated with Apple as they don't consider their customers' needs. I've been using the camera kit for 2 years to backup my Canon EOS 7d RAW files. After the software upgrade the iPad will not copy the files from the camera. It displays the thumbnails but when I select Import All it appears to load but a red warning icon is displayed on each image, with no way to read the warning, yet the file does not download. Very annoying.

    I own a Panasonic HDC-TM90. When I connected it to the iPad, a statement on the iPad says it uses too much power. The photos are imported, but not the video footage.

    Not what it says

    Unfortunately the connector only works with my iPhone. All my cameras get the same message: 'require too much power'
    Makes the kit far too expensive for what it actually does . . . . Too bad! Thought we had a good device !

    Great but...

    I got the CCK with my iPad 2, I used it to download photos from my SD card, iPhone and from my camera, it worked great, I was so pleased with it until I went to download more pictures, it won't recognize that it is plugged in with anything now. However, I believe this is a problem with something that has possibly changed on my iPad and not the fault of the CCK. I still haven't found the problem yet though.

    Sandisk ultra 64GB problems

    The 64GB Sandisk works in my Sony DSC-RX100 camera. It also works downloading to my computer. My computer can down load photos to my ipad using itunes and/or sincios (download for free). However it does not work direct from the camera to the ipad, using the camera connection kit CCK. Neither does it work using the CCK SD memory card connector.Bought a 8GB other brand SD memory card. Problem fixed, both direct SD connection and the camara connection now works.

    Great Little Addition for my Ipad 2

    I read all the other review and figured I wasn't going to bother getting this considering all the negativity I was reading on how it didn't work with OS above 4.1. So i figured I'll go pick one up and give it a try, if it fails I'll return it.
    Well it worked great with a older model Nikon DSLR D-200. I hook everything up from camera to I Pad the turned power on the camera and within 5 minutes all the images appeared on the IPad. 303 images. Great investment. one note Make sure you camera support PTP transfers for USB.

    Was perfect, now a waste of money

    I pretty much got my iPad for the ability to import images and video from my cameras using the camera connection kit whilst on the go. Since updating the software (thanks Apple), it now no longer works despite trying all the so called fixes available, and pretty much a blanket silence from Apple themselves on the matter, even though lots of people are reporting the issue.

    Come on Apple sort this out please. I've been a devoted Apple consumer since the mid 90's, but you are about to lose my custom.

    How to import any file into the iPad with the Camera Connection Kit (CCK)

    Tried on my iPad 2 (iOS6.1) with both the USB and SD card adapters. Not all USB sticks work, my 4GB USB initiative one does.

    Plug your SD/USB into the PC.
    Zip the files you need together and rename the zip file something like ZIP_1234.pdf
    If its a single file, just rename it.

    Make a DCIM folder on your SD/USB and paste the zipped.pdf file there.

    Plug the CCK/SD/USB into your iPad and wait for the Photo app to start. Then import your PDF.

    Now to get the PDF out of the Photo import folder, you can use the

    Dropbox app, but you need wifi and to actually upload it to Dropbox first!

    However, free App Store app iTransfer by ComcSoft works.
    Select the ZIP_1234.pdf from the Photo Album/import folder.
    Click on it then use Open In to get it to the file manager of your choice.
    I use Files Pro. Once there, rename it to ZIP_1234.zip and then extract your files.
    If it was a single non-zipped file, rename it back to what it was originally.

    Flawless transfer

    Reading the reviews scared me into thinking this was going to be a disaster, but the transfer of 435 pictures to the iPad from an SD card worked so well I put them on two iPads in less than 5 minutes - no power drain and everything was just right. Have no fear! This is a miracle! And a breeze!
