    Excellent

    Works great with my iPad Air 2! I can easily import videos from my GoPro quickly. I was hesitant to purchase this item at first because of the negative reviews, but it has impressed me so far and I don't see why people are complaining. Great buy, especially for photographers and people with GoPros.

    Here's how to get your non-Camera image/video files to import properly

    The product description warns that this device may only work for images and videos generated by a digital camera. It goes on to say that any random image/video you have on your computer may not import. That's true, but there's a way to fix it. Here's how:
    1. Update iOS device to iOS9.2 or later.
    2. Using your computer, create a folder called "DCIM" to the root of your SD card (or microSD).
    3. Copy the images/videos into the DCIM folder.
    4. Rename each image/video file like this "GOPRXXXX", where XXXX is a unique and incrementing number.
    For example, if you had one JPG file and one .MOV file, name them GOPR0001.JPG and GOPR0002.MOV.
    Incrementing numbers may not be required, but "GOPR" + 4 numeric characters are.
    5. Safely eject SD card from computer, plug Reader into the iOS device, place SD card into the Reader, and Photos app should open. If you're file naming is acceptable, Import will remain open and allow you to view/import the files. Import and you're done!

    Note #1: Other common digital-camera file naming conventions will most likely work.

    Note #2: I've successfully imported several image filetypes: .jpg, .png, .raw. And these video types: .mov, .m4v, .MP4. I am sure many more will work. Also, you can have a mix of filetypes on the SD card simultaneously, and the import will work. For example, import will work with .jpg and .png and .m4v files on the card at the same time.

    This reader itself deserves 4 or 5 stars. It worked for me with several microSDHC cards of various levels of quality, each using a different SD adapter. However, it's the Photos app I find problematic. The Photos->Import feature requires a strict file structure like the one given above. A file named wookie_wants_cookie.jpg won't import. Why can't it be intelligent enough to accept any filename?

    The USB 3.0 Speeds are real on iPad Pro

    Just picked this up to test on my iPad Pro. The USB 3.0 speeds are very real. Such a huge improvement over the older version. For benchmarks see Epic Tutorials website. Speed tests are there. Very good product Apple. 5/5

    Works great with my iPhone 6 Plus

    I bought a Panasonic Lumix FZ70 yesterday. I didn't want to pay another $150 for a camera with WiFi so I bought this little beauty. Gave it a whirl today and it transferred photos taken with my new camera from my SD card to my iPhone 6 Plus effortlessly, easily and FAST. Much faster than mucking around with WiFi connections. Just make sure you have the latest iOS 9.2 for it to work. Now I can share my professional photos on the go from my phone quickly and easily! Thanks Apple!

    tested, works with iPad Pro, iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 9.2

    The adapter works to import image files to the iOS Photos app. I'm running iOS 9.2 on an iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Pro. The transfer speed on the iPad Pro is faster, rated at USB 3.0 speeds as opposed to the iPhone's USB 2.0 speed. I transferred a Nikon D800 RAW file, which are huge 36 megapixel files, in about 2 seconds on the iPad and roughly 5 seconds on the iPhone.

    If you're working with RAW files, make sure your camera model is supported by iOS. Once the files are transferred to your Photos app, you will still need an app to convert the RAW files to file types compatible with the photo editor apps you use. Most will convert to JPG at this time. I'm using the piRAWnha app but there are others. Even the current Adobe apps for iOS will only work with JPG files—Lightroom and Photoshop Fix are the two I tested.

    Works great with iPhone 6s

    I just bought this SD card reader to transfer the photos from my Nikon D3100 to my iPhone 6s and it works flawlessly. I was a bit apprehensive as most of the reviews on Amazon about this product stated that it works only with the iPad. However I have tested the same and it does work with iPhone 6s.

    Great Idea for Photographers

    Just opened the package for the reader and does not work with iPhone6 or iPad Air.
    Spent over an hour with Apple Support and returned the product
