    iPad 2 iOS 4.3.1

    Just uploaded direct from my Canon 7D, RAW files via the USB camera connection no problems at all. Seemed fairly quick as well. Great for previewing the pictures on the iPad.

    Can confirm it works fine on iPad 2 (32Gb) with iOS 4.3.1.

    Would be nice to have the option for Compact Flash.

    Great for journos on the run

    I'm a journalism student and this camera kit works great on the go when I'm out with my iPad and have to download photos from my Nikon D90 on the fly. Just pop in the SDHC card and you're off to the races. Takes a few extra seconds to transfer RAW photos, but well worth it. I just wish this accessory kit worked on my iPhone 4 so I could check out my 12 mpx photos on a Retina Display moments after shooting.

    Great midi keyboard input!

    Bought the kamera kit for my iPad2 to be able to connect my midi keyboard via the usb connector to control the Korg ms-20 app, the most midi keyboards will need power as the ipad can't run them alone on its own power. Worked great with my Evolution Mk -225c keyboard =)! Will not work with all midi keyboards, so check the net first.

    Does not work after iOS 4.2

    I bought this kit last year and it worked perfectly with all my camera SD cards, but stopped immediately after iOS4.2 was installed. I have just tried it with my new iPad 2 and it doesn't work on that either. The device is recognised in settings but does not trigger the Photos app as it should.

    I strongly recommend that you try this in the shop with your own iPad and SD card before purchase. I have written to Apple about this but have had no response. I would like a refund, but don't suppose I'll get one.

    Doesn't work with my camera

    Well, when I say "my" camera, I mean "the camera I use". I shoot weekly videos for a local event, on an HD Canon camcorder. Traditionally, I'd bring the SD card home, pop it into my MacBook Pro, and go to town in iMovie. My main reason for buying the kit was to try doing my video editing on the iPad, but it seems like the format of the videos isn't recognized by the Camera Connection Kit. Big bummer.

    Works fine with my raw photos from the Nikon D80, and of course with my iPhone 4. So that's good. But yeah, I really wish I could get the camcorder's videos to offload onto the iPad 2.

    I love my camera connection kit. I use both the USB and SD Card connectors and they work flawlessly! They're perfect for when I'm on a photo shoot and I can show my clients the photos right away on my iPad. Plus, they're super compact so I can just throw them in my camera bag with my iPad and I'm ready to go!

    Absolutely great!

    I don't know where individuals are coming up with negative comments on this great product! All you have to do is connect you sd card into the card reader and that's it! It will ask you what you would like to import and once it's finished, it will ask you whether or not you would like to keep your pictures on the sd card itself or delete them. It is one of the best accessories I have ever bought from apple! Thanks apple for making such renowned products!!!

    Terrible - crippled by the new updates

    So, what to say?

    Whenever I connect my powered camera through the USB reader to the iPad, it works fine.
    However, whenever I plug in the SD card reader, nothing. I get a message saying "The connected USB device requires too much power."
    And that's the end of that.

    After a bit of reading up online, I found that this is a common problem - caused by the 3.2+ upgrades, which reduced the power output from 100mAh to a measly 20mAh, which basically makes it unusable unless you want to use up your camera's battery.
    This is the only Apple product I've ever been disappointed with, and I hope it doesn't happen again.
    Apple, if you're going to sell us a camera connection kit, we want to be able to connect our cameras to it! So is this how it works now? Just sell us something for £50 then release an upgrade which makes the iPad not want to recognise it anymore. Cheers for that

    Doesn't work for Compact Flash cameras or card readers

    I bought this intending to use my iPad on my upcoming trip to download, view, and email pictures while on the road. My camera is a Canon 20D which uses a Compact Flash card. When I tried connecting my USB CF card reader to the iPad, the iPad said that the device drew too much power and wasn't allowed. I then tried plugging in my Cannon 20D in via a USB connection cable and the iPad said the device wasn't supported. I'll be returning the kit to Apple.

    Apple, either allow other devices to work, or call it the "Apple iPad SD Camera Connection Kit".

    Works but limited

    This works, you can plug in an SD card, point-and-shoot camera or iPhone and the Photos app will open and everything is perfect.

    However, I bought this for use with my Compact Flash card reader and to plug into my USB Apple keyboard. Neither features work, and they used to. I know that in the description it didn't say it would work like this, but this is a software issue of a power consumption limit (which is new to iOS 4.3) that is preventing this functionality.

    Bottom line: good for its exactly specified use but nothing more. Apple: change the limit.

    2 Adapter for one price, that work

    1 for SD card reading into iPhoto, and another to USB connect your Camera to the iPad. Either way you can have success, but I prefer the SD Card reader so I don't need to bring along another USB cable to connect the camera.

    I have an 8GB SD card from San DIsk that works just fine. I like checking out pictures on the iPad before I download them to my iMAC. I like this to enable better selections, and to share with friends faster.

    Why does feature no longer work?

    This always worked great. I would connect my camera to Ipad 1 with a USB cable and it would open the download app and zip right into the Ipad. I just upgraded to version 4.3 and now it does not work at all. When I connect my camera the same way I always did nothing happens. I can no longer download pictures from my Olympus digital camera to my Ipad. My camera does not use SD cards. It uses XD. It looks like I'm out of luck. Come on Apple why do you change things that worked to the same things that no longer work?

    good product

    I was a bit worried after reading some bad reviews but I was relieved to see that the kit worked perfectly with my Nikon D300s. No problem with either RAW or JPGs and downloading onto my mac afterwards. Great workflow.

    BEWARE - videos copied from Canon won't work on iOS3.2

    Was keen to get this adapter for our Spring Break trip, hoping to only take my iPad and cameras. JPEG and RAW from a Canon T2I worked OK, as did JPEG from a Canon SD1400. The iPad could copy video files in MOV format from both cameras - it took a long time (3minutes) for a test 100mb file to get copied across, but then wouldn't play the files. The iPad recognized the files as .MOV but would not play and displays a generic MOV icon. I'm running iOS3.2 on an original iPad. Bummed out that I now have to take a laptop on my trip to backup files from my camera.

    My first iPad disappointment

    So my rating doesn't match the title. Because the product is great, the iPad is the issue. I researched and checked supported formats because I wanted to take movies and photos from my Kodak Zi8 video camera. I imported (from the SD Card) but the movies won't play. They are in H.264 (MOV), AAC LC format and I can't do anything with them. The whole point was to not depend on a PC/Mac and file conversion software. Therefore, disappointed

    USB and iPAD

    I have found this adapter to be very useful. All though it is considered to be a camera connector kit adapter, with the app "fileapp" it can be used to have flash drives and external harddrives for file access. With iworks you can save a file to the ipad and then transfer it to the flashdrive or ext hdd by using the "fileapp" app. Awesome, eh?
