    Very handy but crashes all the time

    I've found this very handy when importing 1000's of photos at a time from my DSLR.

    It has a blemish though in that if you do anything at all on the iPad while the photos are importing, even just scrolling the display, then the photo app crashes and you have to start over again. I hope they fix this in iOS 4.

    Very limited functionality, frustrated user experience.

    Good
    -----
    It supports many different storage devices.
    It comes with two adapters, SD and USB.
    It works on both iphone and ipad, though a iphone gives a annoying warning.
    It imports pictures and some videos from older cameras/camcorders.

    Bad
    -----
    I take most of my pictures and videos with a modern camcorder.
    Modern HD camcorders ALL use AVCHD (MTS, M2TS) file format.
    This kit provides no way of viewing MTS files. I can view MTS files from my tiny HD camcorder, but I cannt view them on a ipad. Me thinks the Apple A4 chip is all hype.

    I have to lug a Windows laptop if I want to view videos on a screen larger then the one built onto camcorders (Quicktime does NOT support AVCHD, Windows 7 natively supports AVCHD).

    No way of off loading files to the Internet.

    A must have tool

    The ipad camera connection kit was the reason I purchased an ipad!

    The camera connection kit is definitely a must have for all digital photographers! It’s easy to use and reasonably priced. In my mind this kit turns the ipad from a toy into a must have piece of photographic kit.

    A very handy camera kit

    This product is very handy, and well worth the price. I am a travel photographer, and am already loving the ability to pop the SD card out of my Nikon D90 and into the camera connection kit. I can view photos on the iPad in a 5x7 format, and great color I might add, to quickly review my work. I then either delete the photos from the card and use the USB cable to transfer to my MBP for iPhoto editing, or reinsert the SD card into the camera to continue shooting photos. Perfection!

    So far, no good....

    Might be the photo app, but after trying to upload a few pix, it crashes the app and sends me back to the main screen. So then when I need to try again, it makes a new album with the next 2 or 3 it uploads. Then crashes again... :-(

    A must for iPad users!

    This is such a worthwhile outlay for your iPad. The way the iPad works with this makes photo management so easy! It lifts the iPad to another level but this is an understatement as the iPad and the camera connection kit perfectly complement each other.

    It massively increases the usability of the iPad.

    You are never going to find a better accessory for your iPad on cost/benefit ratio in my opinion!

    Works for me

    The USB connector works with my Canon 5D and the iPhone 3G! Make sure the PC/Printer is set to printer on your menu on your Canon Camera.

    It's okay, but I wish it could do more

    I bought the camera kit to upload picture on to iPad to share on my FB account, but it doesn't work. It only goes straight to the iPad and all you can do is slideshow presentation.

    Great addition for travel photographers

    If your camera uses an SD card and you travel a lot, then this accessory is a godsend. Importing to your iPad is easy, and lets you review all your pictures in the original format (just make sure you have the appropriate settings for this), thus freeing space on your card.
    More importantly, that means that unless you need to edit your pictures on photoshop, you won't have to carry your heavy laptop with you anymore.
    Thanks to its great screen and amazing battery, the iPad fits really perfectly as the photographer's best friend.

    Now there are a few things that could (should) be improved:
    1/ there should be a CF card reader, especially for professionals
    2/ importing to the iPad should offer the option to arrange photos in the folder of your choice. The current set up (puts them in a last import folder) is ok but not ideal.
    3/ exporting from the iPad is a little tedious, there should be an auto import (and not to iPhoto library!!) pop up when you plug in the iPad with new pictures on.

    Other than that, it works really smoothly, and will make many photographers' life easier when moving around with heavy kits and backpacks.

    More useful than I expected

    For what the two gizmos do this is jolly expensive. But it does import photos from an SD card very quickly (far quicker than into iPhoto on my Mac) and it's a great way of being able to show friends/family photos on the bigger screen of the iPad more or less immediately after being taken. Although it imports the RAW files from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 (it shows the JPG and RAW as a single file) when you try to import the RAW into iPhoto it says the format is unrecognised. But that's a problem with iPhoto, not this particular product. Added bonus: despite two or three initial warning messages from the iPad the USB adapter *does* let me connect a standard wired Apple Mac keyboard (the white with numeric version) to the iPad - works brilliantly. Well, like a real keyboard should do.

    problem with USB and Nikon S8000

    If I try to connect a Nikon Coolpic S8000 to the iPad via the Camera Connection USB device the iPad rejects the connection because the device draws too much power. It seem the iPad can not work with any device that charges the battery when transferring photos

    I did not try my Nikon D300 because the battery is much larger.

    Not wishing to break anything ---- So What of I connect a USB memory reader to the ipad via the USB Camera Connection?

    SD does not work

    Purchased the Camera Kit mainly for the ability to import pdf, notes, and numbers files to my iPad. iPad would give a "The attached USB device is not supported." fault. I reformatted the SD card thinking that if there are PC files on the card it may have confused iPad, but no luck. I feel that I wasted my money.

    Great at first

    Hard to find up in Canada, got mine from a friend visiting Vegas.
    Worked really good at first, I must of transferred 100+ pictures and some video.
    Then one day the same SD card I used before can no longer be read when using the kit.
    Card is good and photos can be transferred via itunes but not through camera kit.
    Oh well , at least there is a back up method minus the direct video transfer.

    Disappointing

    according to its specs, this should work with both my Nikon and Canon cameras. it works on the Nikon sometimes, and the Canon never. if it won't import automatically, and there is no import command, what am I supposed to do? very frustrating.

    Can't view without importing? Give me a break

    The whole reason I got this thing was to quickly view pics from my camera's SD card. Not to have to sit and wait while it imports a few hundred, or for me to have to pick and choose (one at a time) which ones to import just to see if they are blurry or not.

    Come on Apple, who thought mandatory importing was a good idea?

    Well with the wait

    It took 4 weeks to get, but the camera and SD card connection kit is so slick, it has proved worth the wait. It is fast and very simple. RevIew, remove those you don't want and download those you do

    poor R&D for this device's compatibility.

    downloads images quickly from my Lumix TZ7 but doesn't recognise Avchd videos from the camera at all,
    I would have thought Panasonic would be a popular brand it would work with.
    Doesn't recognise my smartphone N95 either for images or video,
    I hope my new n97 will fare better but I don't have high hopes.
    it doesn't even recognise a microSd card in a Sd adaptor out of the phone :(
    In short a bit disappointed and means I have to resort to a desktop computer.
    If you are near an Apple store make sure you can test your camera on an Ipad camera kit inshore.

    Horrible!

    This thing is huge!
    It's far to large to stick out of the iPad. Why couldn't you this into the iPad apple!?
    Further more it only supports SD Cards.

    At £25 this is a complete rip off!

    iPad camera adapter

    I just received my connectors and plugged in my Nikon D80 and Nikon D700 to my iPad and was able to download all of my photos to my iPad and I use the NEF mode (RAW) and it let me still view all of my pics.
    This is a great tool for my photography since now I can download my cards and view my pics immediately.
