    Works perfectly

    I bought this product with my ipad 3. What I wanted to do was load RAW files on the ipad from my Canon 7D which only uses compact flash cards. I was a bit concerned about the CCK from other reviews. I spoke to a sales assistant in the Regent Street Apple store and he assured me it would work. I tried with the camera direct to ipad, perfect. Then I tried with my multi-chip card reader , that did not work as the ipad did not have enough power to run it. I ordered a single chip card reader from eBay, perfect again. The largest compact flash card I use is 8GB so I can't be sure if larger ones will work,

    Buyer BEWARE

    Naively bought this, thinking it would be compatible with a Nikon S6200.
    It is NOT as 'the attached accessory uses too much power'.
    The only way round this problem is to take out the SD card & use the 2nd card connector.
    This defeats the whole point of buying a CAMERA connector.
    Caveat Emptor indeed :(

    Completely useless

    This item works with some iPads and not with others. How can Apple sell such an unpredictable product with no hint at point of sale that it could be £25 wasted on completely useless piece of kit ?

    Does not work

    This adaptor does not work with the iPad 2, all it says is "this connected USB device requires too much power" it doesn't seem that apple support this device anymore on the updated operation platform,

    Do not buy this unit if you have the latest operation system software installed as it will not work. What a con.

    I have updated my iPad 2 to iOS 5.0 and now on iOS 5.1.1 it still doesn't work. Before the update it worked very good. I always see the same sentence:"This accessory is not supported by iPad". I have this problem for a long time but now I decided to write a review. Apple, please make the software update to solve the problem, it will be better to do it before iOS 6.

    Fantastic addition

    I was on holiday and completely frustrated by the fact that all my pics were on my camera and I wasn't able to see them on the HD screen of my new shiny iPad. After buying this simple and affordable kit I'm totally amazed by how easy it is to import the pictures from my phone. Just plug it in and go.

    Note: you can only import newly taken pics in the original camera format. It doesn't work if you copy pictures to an SD card and try to import them.

    I have a SONY camera which has a mini SD memory in it. I very recently bought the new iPad and I bought this camera kit along with it. When I opened this kit and tried to put mini SD memory of my camera in the kit it did not work. After thoroughly investigating the problem it revealed that yet I had to buy an adapter in order to place mini SD memory in side the kit. This adapter is not part of the kit and has to be bought separately. So be careful to check your camera memory before buying this kit for the IPad. In my opinion the adapter should have been part of kit with little money added in the over all price of the kit.

    Importing old photos

    Using the SD card holder or the USB adaptor I can easily import new images, including RAW images, taken on all my family’s cameras: Canon EOS 500D, S100, Ixus 950 IS, Ixus 850 IS, and Olympus Stylus 410. Delight changed to disappointment when I tried to import images downloaded to an SD card from my PC.
    It’s clear that my iPad will only import images conforming to the DCF standard (Design rule for Camera File system) which specifies the partition, folder and file format for camera SD cards. The file name of most of my old images unfortunately does not conform to the DCF standad as they were derived from film scans or had been edited, cropped and renamed at some time. But, simply renaming my old images in DCF format and downloading them to the image folder of a camera formatted SD card enables my iPad to import them. I rename images in the Canon format: IMG_0001.JPG, IMG_0002.JPG etc.

    Works perfectly

    Superb, connected my Sony NEX-5 and it displayed all my photos, asking which ones to import. With iPhoto on the iPad as well, am constructing some fabulous journals of our French holiday!

    Next to useless

    Any camera I connect produces a warning that there is insufficient power - truly appalling. The product description should have a very bold warning at the top

    Apple Camera Connection Kit for my New iPad Gen 3

    I have just purchased the Apple Camera Connection Kit for my New iPad Gen 3 and it worked perfectly.

    My Nikon D7000 D-SLR camera created both RAW (NEF) and JPG files on two separate SD cards (SanDisk Extreme Pro 32GB SDHC 95MB/s Class 10 UHS-1) and the Camera Connection kit recognised the card instantly, displayed thumbnails of all the photos, transferred the photos to the iPad and deleted them from the SD card.

    I noticed that copying the RAW files took much longer to transfer than the JPG and that it power consumption increased too.

    Camera Connection Kit

    Bought this with a few doubts, having read some of the negative reviews, but for what it's worth to anyone thinking of this, I have had no problems whatsoever. With an iPad2, the SD card reader instantly read and uploaded RAW files from a Canon S95 and a Panasonic Lumix G1, and the USB connector again flawlessly connected to a Nikon D200 and uploaded RAW + JPEG files. Absolutely invaluable for instant checking of files on a shoot or backup on holiday etc. Can do the same with a laptop I suppose, but the iPad is so much lighter and instantly available, perfect for showing shot previews to a client out in the field!

    Amazing and simple..!

    I do a lot of photography but don't want to lug around my laptop all the time. This kit with my iPad does a superb job. I am able to use the USB cable with my DSLR and instantly download my images. Also, if I use my compact, I can just whip out the SD card and plug it in... So simple..! Highly recommended..!

    iPad 3, GarageBand, Snowball USB mic'

    I use the camera connector to connect a Blue Snowball USB mic' to my iPad 3. It works well with GarageBand. Small gripe - the connector is not a snug fit in the iPad and it's vulnerable to knocks.

    Doesn't Work with Nikon D300

    Like many other reviewers I'm very frustrated with this device. It will not recognise my Camera and allow connection to my iPad however, my camera connects succesfully to my iMac and Macbook therefore it's not a camera or compact flash card issue.

    If I put the card into a card reader instead of a direct camera connection, then connect with the device to my iPad, I get the message that the device 'uses to much power'.

    Like many others I bought this device to review my photos on my iPad at the end of a shoot but the device doesn't recognise my camera or card

    What a load of rubbish, when Apple gear is normally so superb.

    Does exactly what it's supposed to

    I was a little wary of this product because of some of the negative reviews however it works perfectly, my camera is a Canon EOS60D and it works with the card reader and the cable, imports photos in RAW & JPEG format quickly and will import and play HD video shot with the camera, my iPad is a 64gb 3rd gen and I'm really happy with my purchase.
