    Disappointed...

    I got this mainly for video. Connecting, it was fine for photos, so no issues there, but the video end of things has been very frustrating. I tried .mov files, and nothing came up, I just could not see anything in the import bit, and then tried MP4 and still nothing came up. I'd previously tried other formats but none of them worked. So what's the solution then? I have videos on various formats but none of them get recognised when I use the kit. I can't recommend it because it hasn't worked for me although other people don't seem to have the same problem.

    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 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

    Perfect for 1080p video imports

    I recently bought a GoPro Hero 4 silver camera, and own an iPad 3rd gen, you can inport hi res pictures wirelessly, but when it cames to video, I found it would only be low res, and poor quality Finnish, so, I decided to purchase this connection kit, not knowing if it would work, I was very pleased to find it imported 1080p 60fps perfectly from my 32gb class 10 San disk extreme Micro SD card, However it won't import anything higher like 1440p 2.7k or 4k
    This makes it very handy for posting 1080p straight to YouTube or into any ISO video editor.
    Quite happy with this item

    At a loss with camera connection kit

    I'm at a loss, none of the camera connection kits are working on my iPad mini and I don't understand why. When I plug the connection kit into my iPad mini a message pops up saying
    "this cable or accessory is not certified and my not work reliably with this IPad"
    Can I fix this, if I can how? If I can't can someone please give me advice on what to do?
    Software version is iOS 8.4
    Thank you.

    Camera Connection Kit - works perfectly

    To the person below who says that this item doesn't work - I don't understand what you mean. I've been using this kit since I purchased my iPad 3rd generation and it works fine to this day.

    Doesn't do what is says on the tin

    Don't waste your money on this connector kit as it doesn't operate as you would expect. Total waste of money, so much so that I use a Samsung Tab now and have given the iPad to my wife, who leaves all the techie stuff to me. Apple, you're a BIG disappointment!

    A waste of money

    The adapter will download raw files from my Nikon with no problem. I can view the pictures on the ipad with no problems.

    However the problems arise when transferring the photographs to a PC for editing. They will only transfer as small TIFF files using a third party program. OK only for viewing photographs on the ipad after taking, but of no use to serious photographers.

    A waste of time and money.

    Importing video from Sony RX100 to iPad 4

    Have tried Apple's SD Card Reader and USB Camera Adaptor. Receive error messages using both with no luck at all in terms of importing video to my iPad. Apple seem bereft of advice to customers and I'm left wondering why spend all that money on an iPad when you can't use it to import video for uploading to sites like YouTube? It would be funny if it wasn't so frustrating. Does anyone have an answer?

    The best way to import photos

    Bought this product so I could import and upload photos from my Samsung NX when travelling, and it works perfectly !! I always import photos via SD-card and the import with the camera connector is even faster and easier than on the computer !
    I bought it although I had my concerns because of all the negative reviews, but I am positively surprised !
    There might be a problem with it, if you connect your camera and it demands the USB as a power source, but what is the problem with using your SD card ?

    Totally Useless

    I have just tried to transfer my photos from my Samsung Camera to my IPad using the camera connection kit and recd a message advising that the accessory is not supported and that my camera uses too much power, thus I cannot transfer my photographs. What a total waste of money and even more disappointingly that I cannot save my photos to my IPad. Total disregard from Apple to their customers, totally outrageous, but yet they get away with it. How can I rate one star for an unusable product, it should be rated zero stars.

    Was perfect, now a waste of money

    I pretty much got my iPad for the ability to import images and video from my cameras using the camera connection kit whilst on the go. Since updating the software (thanks Apple), it now no longer works despite trying all the so called fixes available, and pretty much a blanket silence from Apple themselves on the matter, even though lots of people are reporting the issue.

    Come on Apple sort this out please. I've been a devoted Apple consumer since the mid 90's, but you are about to lose my custom.

    How to import any file into the iPad with the Camera Connection Kit (CCK)

    Tried on my iPad 2 (iOS6.1) with both the USB and SD card adapters. Not all USB sticks work, my 4GB USB initiative one does.

    Plug your SD/USB into the PC.
    Zip the files you need together and rename the zip file something like ZIP_1234.pdf
    If its a single file, just rename it.

    Make a DCIM folder on your SD/USB and paste the zipped.pdf file there.

    Plug the CCK/SD/USB into your iPad and wait for the Photo app to start. Then import your PDF.

    Now to get the PDF out of the Photo import folder, you can use the

    Dropbox app, but you need wifi and to actually upload it to Dropbox first!

    However, free App Store app iTransfer by ComcSoft works.
    Select the ZIP_1234.pdf from the Photo Album/import folder.
    Click on it then use Open In to get it to the file manager of your choice.
    I use Files Pro. Once there, rename it to ZIP_1234.zip and then extract your files.
    If it was a single non-zipped file, rename it back to what it was originally.

    Works 100% with Sandisk 2GB Memory Card & Canon PowerShot A1200 Camera

    Just bought this from Apple Store in Regent Street, London. It did not work with a Micro SD Adaptor with 2GB of Micro SD Memory inside it, but this could of been the adaptor itself as it was quite old.

    I tried my Canon PowerShot A1200 digital camera's 2GB Memory Card in the Memory Kit and it worked straight away, as did my camera when I plugged it directly into the USB Kit. So overall I am satisfied, hence the 5 Star rating.

    Amazing!!

    This product is really good it lets me chose which photos i want on my ipad and I find the best way to do it is to take out the SD card and use that. The picture quality is awesome ever so clear and it only takes 2 seconds to complete one picture and the instructions are well organist and easily understandable but it is very straight forward anyway. I am very pleased with this camera connection kit and is well worth the money. !!

    Frustrating

    When I plug this in to my iPad it says 'This accessory is not supported by iPad.' Incredibly frustrating since it is sold as an iPad accessory.
