    Works with CF cards and Raw Files

    This is a great accessory to have if you have a point and shoot camera or a DSLR. I have used it with both the SD card reader and the USB reader to upload images from a CF card. If you have a DSLR which uses CF cards it will still work, just connect a CF card reader into the USB plug and it will read it just like the SD reader. Also I shoot in RAW (NEF) and it will read those images and when I connect my iPad into my computer I can import the RAW files directly into Lightroom or Aperture with no data loss to the original file! It will be useful when I travel and want a backup or run out of room on my card and want to store the files on the iPad. I also have seen that you can upload video but I have not tried that yet. As a photographer though, it does everything I could have asked for and more!

    The USB will work with many things, not just a camera!

    Things that I found out that you can plug in to the USB connection are USB headphones and USB headsets, USB keyboards and probably more things. If you buy the package, it comes with two different products, one for a USB connection, and another for an SD card. Also, you can plug any iPhone to the USB port and get your photos off of the iPhone so you can view them on your iPad! This is a very nice product and nothing I would change. If you email the photos with the Mail app on the iPad, they are in 2048x1536 resolution rather than the iPhone's 800x600 emailed resolution. One last thing, once you connect to your Mac, iPhoto brings in full resolution images with EXIF information intact. Great job Apple! The iPad now has a USB port!

    The connectors work well

    I got mine two days ago and first wanted to make sure that I could transfer camera RAW files. The connectors transferred CR2 files (Canon) via the SD reader nicely and NEF files (Nikon) hooked to my D300 via a USB cord and the USB connector.

    I've tried to connect various devices via the USB connector as follows:

    Small portable hard drive - draws too much power to work
    Multi-card readers - draw too much power to work
    Single CF card reader (Office Depot Ativa) - works!
    USB Memory stick - "unsupported device"

    Now all we need is Aperture for the iPad!

    great!

    The first connector (30 pin of course) features a USB port allowing you to connect up either your digital camera or iPhone direct to the iPad. When connected an application automatically loads up displaying thumbs of images that are available on the camera or iPhone to download. You can then select what you want to copy over. Images are then synced with your PC or Mac is required.

    The next connector is almost the same but instead of connecting the camera direct to the iPad it features an SD card slot allowing images to be read directly from the memory card containing pictures. The same app (Photos) is opened up and the same interface.

    Useful Little Thing

    This is a wonderful little addition to my iPad accessory collection.

    Picked it up at my local Apple store.

    I am so happy now as I can very easily transfer photos from my digital camera directly or by putting the SD memory card into the slot. This is VERY handy when you travel.

    Thanks Apple for another great product for our magical iPads !
