    Does what it says on the tin!

    Perfect, and it just works. Plug it in and up pops your photos ready to tap Import.

    I'm running the latest version of iOS (5.0.1) and my SD card reader still works fine on my original iPad, so not sure why others are having problems.

    Don't believe the 1 star reviews

    Like every other apple product I have ever used, it works, as it says it does, straight out of the box. I have a Canon 7d. It works using usb, it works from a Sandisk SD in a CF adapter. It just works!

    Does what it says on the tin .....

    This kit works with both my Nikon cameras - my D80 SLR and my S5100 compact. It also works flawlessly with my variety of Sandisk Extreme SD cards.
    The only negative thing I can express is my disappointment at the attitude of the Apple Store employee in Birmingham's Bullring who was singularly uninterested in helping me when I asked about being able to try them in my iPad2 before buying them. I've read other reviews in here that suggested different Apple stores were much more helpful.

    Brilliant!

    After reading reviews I was sceptical of purchasing this due to so many mixed responses, however I am thrilled with these little genius add ons for my iPad 2. They are unbelievably simple to use, my iPad instantly recognised the product and loaded automatically and I was delighted with how fast it uploaded my photos to my iPad. It also gives you the option to erase the images from the SD card once your upload has been completed! Love these two products, could not be happier with them, and was more than happy to pay £25 for them. Happy customer!

    Card reader not working ?

    Purchased the card reader 1week ago worked fine first time,very impressed but second time I tried it,it wouldn't work,read reviews about all the problems people were having so thought I had bought a useless piece of rubbish.Took it back to HMV(who were very helpful)and tried about 10 more card readers all of which didn't work.Then took iPad to John Lewis where it was purchased from, they tested card reader on demo unit which worked fine so they diagnosed a faulty iPad.They swapped my iPad for a new one and hey presto everything works a treat!
    a brilliant piece of kit

    Works for Canon G12 & SanDisk SD cards

    After reading all 87 reviews I decided to purchase this from a store, where I could try out both of the connectors before buying (much to the amusement of the staff in the Currys / PCWorld store).

    I’ve a Canon Powershot G12 and use SanDisk memory cards (1Gb); iPad2 is running 4.3.5.

    Both connectors worked first time; the transfer speed from the SD card was very quick, and only slightly slower using the cable. Hope they continue to work so well.

    Excellent!

    Despite the various adverse reviews, I can assure you that, with an iPad2 and a SDHC card from a Canon S95 it works brilliantly (as advertised).

    Easy to use with IPad2

    Excellent. Arrived the next day, beautifully engineered, worked with Samsung camera and will take photographs off a Sony HD video camera. Didn't recognise the Sony videos but I was expecting that. You'll need some software to edit the photos once their on the IPad2 and I used PS Express.

    Why aren't the plastic covers supplied with all connectors?

    As advertised

    This product works as advertised. A little bit pricey.
    But it does what it says it should.

    It worked fine with my ipad2 and Nikon D5100.

    Works just fine for me

    Transfers pictures taken from canon IXUS 980 IS no problem at all, 16 GB sdhc.
    Also transfers pictures and hd videos, which was an unexpected bonus, from liquid image scuba mask camera, 16 GB micro sdhc with adapter.
    Does not have sufficient power to drive the cameras so card removed and card adapter rather than USB adapter used.
    Does not recognise the avchd videos taken from panasonic hdc sd90. Not a format the iPad 2 currently seems to recognise.
    The transfer is easy and the software fires up immediately when the card and connector are attached to the iPad 2.

    Excellent.

    Both the USB and SD adapter work well with my Nikon D3100.
    I was concerened after a few reviews said that they were having problems, shame they never stated what camera they were using.
    So no problems importing photos direct from camera, or the SDCH card (TDK 8GB), then sending them on from there to e mail or other sites.
    One reason for getting the iPad 2 was so I could take it on my travels and upload photos.
    Very pleased.

    Far exceeded my expectations

    I bought this for my mother for her new ipad 2, I knew it would it work no problem with the SD card. But what surprised me was how quickly it down loaded the many photos stored on my father's camera SD card. I had read the reviews on here earlier, so when I bought my ipad 2, I didn't bother buying this connection kit. So when I tried my mother's USB connection kit piece and connected with a lead directly to my Canon 5D Mark 2 where I shoot RAW and Jpeg together with each photo, which can easily be 30 MB between them. I was gobsmacked how quickly these 30 MB photos down loaded. Now I'm glad I went for the 64GB ipad version, which will be great for holidays, instead of taking the laptop for my photo storage. Especially nowadays with the limited luggage allowance on the aircraft. That's why I here buying mine ipad camera connection kit today!

    Excellent product

    Having read other reviews on here that talk about incompatibility with semi-pro cameras, I took the advantage of a trip to London to visit an Apple Store to check before purchase. Having been assured that it would work with my camera, I purchased it. Plugging the camera in via the USB connection, it showed up instantly, and quickly downloaded the photos to my iPad. The pictures look wonderful on screen, and can be easily synced with a computer, or emailed or edited in the iPad itself. I'm very pleased with my purchase, and will be using it a lot!

    FANTASTIC PRODUCT

    Before I brought this I was looking at the reviews about this and was getting very worried that it wasn't as good as it claimed. I got this yesterday and thought I need to right this review as all the negative reviews for this product are rubbish. This product is very easy and portable to use and the pictures came up fantastic. Thank you apple for another great, easy, and fantastic product!!!

    why was I worried ?

    I read the reviews and was worried when ordering, but I shouldn't have been. I have successfully used it with ScanDsik 8Gb HD cards and Nikon D3100 camera. Both connectors worked a treat,thanks Apple.

    Great piece of kit!

    I bought this as part gift for myself and brother-in-law, who is a camera buff. We have used these on both iPad and iPad2 and it works perfectly fine. The image upload is quick and video upload is acceptable too.

    Having read some of the negative reviews I was a bit sceptical to buy this. So here is my advice. (Mostly aimed at previous negative reviewers and intrigued customers):

    When using the USB adapter, make sure that the battery of the camera source is CHARGED as fully as possible, this enables the data to be transferred quicker, if you get the message that the device does not have enough power, then charge it up, or use the sd card reader instead. Most of us that take or gadgetry seriously will always have spare battery packs charged, for whatever!
