    photo card reader works!

    Was successfully able to view and transfer photos from a Compact Flash card and a Memory Stick Duo Pro card using a USB card reader and the USB connection adapter

    iPad camera connector

    Sorry but this is not very good value. OK the USB adapter works fine and it does support a multicard reader, but as for the Apple card reader very limited use, far to few card choices, so this makes this kit expensive. Perhaps you could increase the range of cards that it can read. For people like myself with more than one make/type of camera, need the range to choose from. Try harder next time. iPad seems to be brilliant.

    Fabulous service !!

    Ordered this attachment online ... Delivery time was quoted as 3 weeks, but I had it in my hand in within 2 days. What fantastic service ! Very impressed ! Both adapters work flawlessly for me. Extremely happy :)

    Works perfectly

    Used it to load pics from both a camera and an iphone, however, would be even better if it also worked to upload pics to an iphone. When plugged into the phone, you get a message about no compatability.

    Hey Apple, how about updating the phone so we can use it with both devices.

    Overall, a nice piece, if a little pricey for what it is.

    Great Piece of Kit

    I was almost put off buying this connector, as I have an Olympus U tough, and previous reviewer says it does not work with this camera. Well mine arrived yesterday, and it does work with my camera!
    Also transferred video clips from iPhone 4, to iPad, with great results.
    Worth the money.

    Worked great after reboot

    On first use, the photos app kept crashing while importing. But, it worked perfectly after a reboot. Fantastic for reviewing photos while on vacation.

    Beat the eBay sharks - order on-line from Apple's web site

    Yes this should have been free with my $1049 iPad, and Yes it is a must have (for me, at least), and Yes it is always out of stock at the Apple shops - but you don't have to give in to the sharks on eBay who sell these at up to TWICE the already high price!

    Just go to the Apple web site's on-line store and order on-line. Shipping is free, by TNT Courier, and you only get charged when they ship. Mine came in 2 weeks, but with no hassles.

    My hobbies include photography and motorcycling, so I can now travel with my Nikon DSLR and iPad, shoot the best travel photos (as if!) and just dump them to the iPad’s 64GB SSD storage and be able to show people the images straight away. How good is that?

    extra detail

    this device also imports video content from your camera

    the iPad will not play it but will allow it to be put onto your computer when it is next connected
    which is great for film makers as high definition video is quite consuming on memory cards

    this also works with the iPod Nano with the USB connection so you can import videos recorded on the camera, straight onto your iPad.

    I have also tested this device with the following iPod & iPhone models
    all of which DO NOT work

    iPod Nano 4th Gen
    iPod Nano 5th Gen

    iPod Video 5th Gen
    iPod Classic 160 GB (2007)
    iPod Classic 120 GB (2008)
    iPod Classic 160 GB (2009)

    iPhone 3G
    iPhone 3GS
    iPhone 4

    iPod Touch 2nd Gen

    these were tested attempting to import photos onto each specified device (not exporting to the iPad)

    despite a few years ago there was an attachment for the iPod video that looked identical, this does not appear to work even thought the iPod video still has the option called "Photo Import"

    Ipad Camera Kit

    Just got mine after waiting 3 weeks (July 2010). Disappointed really. It will easily take photos off my Sony T100 but I can't get it to import through the SD card adaptor so it's off to the Apple store for Tech advice. Also the device will not import jpgs from a memory stick nor will it take jpgs from my Blackberry Storm Just says Device not supported (for Blackberry, SD Card and Memory Stick). Therefore a bit overpriced for this accessory IMHO.

    My review

    This is a good product but I have noticed that it will only read certain sd cards.

    Don't hesitate get yours today

    I just recently got my iPad and not being able to connect a camera to it to import pictures was holding me up. After I went to my local apple store for the 20th time to see the iPad I saw this hanging on the wall in the accessories area. Bought it and a new case right then. took it home plugged in my Iphone and my D70 Camera no issues thanks apple.

    I can't wait till we can hook up an external drive (hint hint)

    Waste of money - unusable

    After waiting weeks for delivery after iPad, my camera connection kit arrived today. With much anticipation I connected my Canon EOS 20D and NOTHING! The SD card reader is a waste as my camera uses compact flash and so even the USB connection is useless as it does not recognize the camera is even connected. Tried a small compact Canon and no problems so what is wrong? A big regret in purchase and more effort than it is worth to try and get my money back. Once bitten, twice shy so beware of this very expensive plug unless you have a guarantee it will work.

    Excellent device

    Although, like the rest of you, I wish the iPad housed a usb port, the Apple Camera Connection Kit works flawlessly. Using a Sandisk Compact Flash Card reader I am able to upload RAW files from my Canon 5d mark II, that are about 21 mb each, easily and fairly quickly. It's great for an on-the-go photographer looking to back up photos or create space for more pictures. Truly plug and play and works without a hitch.

    convenient and fast

    A must-have accessory if you intend to transfer photos from digital camera to iPad without a computer or USB cable. It's fast and really convenient. However, it appears that the SD card reader does not work with those SDHC cards. Only regular SD cards are compatible.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit

    I just received the Camera Connection Kit yesterday. I was, easily, able to transfer photos from a Canon G10 to my iPad. I then removed the SD card from the camera and directly connected the SD via the SD memory card connection device and, again, was able to transfer photos easily to my iPad.

    I then experimented with a USB connected, multi-format, memory card reader. I connected the memory card reader via the same USB cable that I used for the camera to iPad transfer and was able to read and transfer images from a "compact flash" memory card which I use on my Nikon D200 and D700 SLR cameras.

    Though I've not done it, yet, I plan to try to transfer photos and data files from a USB flash drive. I suspect that will work, also.

    Bottom line, I think this pair of devices will be quite useful. . . even beyond what Apple has advertised!

    It's the port(s) you wanted but couldn't be fit into such a slim device. A+

    When something is as thin as an ipad, you have to find some sacrifice and also show apple what demand exists for ports and how you can make killer money off of extras. this is an extra, that you should get if you are a photographer or even like to quickly get photos off your camera. I have a macbook pro and use this connection more often, backing up my photos once I sync the ipad with the macbook. Works like a charm and does it quite quickly.
    I hate that you have to pay $$ for this plus a case, plus a... the list goes on but getting first gen equip is never cheap and you have to consider yourself bleeding edge. Altogether, works like a charm.
    Buy it, you will enjoy using it. Not daily but when in use, works perfectly.

    Amazing! Can load videos too!

    Wow! I bought this for my friend for his bday because he wanted it, and I tought it was pretty cool but not that cool. After seeing my friend use it, I bought it the next day for me, what I love about it is that it sorts the pics by date AND it loads VIDEOS! Isn't that awesome? Now I got all the videos I took on my camera into my iPad. The only reason I rated it 4 stars was because it's a little hard to plug it into the iPad with the iPad case. other than that, great product!
