Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit

  • Overview

    With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it's incredibly easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.

    The kit includes two connectors, each with a different interface:

    • The Camera Connector features a USB interface. Just plug it into the dock connector port on your iPad, then attach your digital camera or iPhone using a USB cable (not included). iPhone 3G is not supported.
    • Use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from your camera's SD card. Connect it to your iPad, then insert your digital camera's SD card into the slot.

    After you make the connection, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organises them into albums. When you sync iPad to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer's photo library.

      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 p 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!

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.

      Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit is an useless piece of hardware after iOS9

As having new synth apps to use, I have no choice but to upgrade my iPad to iOS9 for apps compatibility. Unfortunately, the kit is no longer usable with a message prompted "This accessories is no longer supported....." everytime I try to plug it into my iPad. Absolutely disappointed with the way Apple has treated this.

      Rip Off

      Outrageous price for such a simple thing. After market ones don't seem to work. Is that Apple blocking them?

      Uploading photos to iPad with Lightning Card Reader

      I had a lot of problems trying to upload photos to my iPad from an SD Card when using a Lightning SD card Reader. But I have solved my problem, when I noticed t I had a lot of problems trying to upload photos to my iPad from an SD Card when using a Lightning SD card Reader. But I have solved my problem, when I noticed that if the Photos had been saved on to my Windows PC, and saved in a Named Folder and consequently the individual photos in that folder had been named by the same name as the Main folder, then they were not recognized. But when the individual photos had not been named and were just identified as IMG files, then they were recognized by the iPad and uploaded straight away. HOPE THIS HELPS IN SOME WAY
