    Does what it's supposed to

    • Written by from Redditch

    I read other reviews and was a little concerned because of the comments about it not working with USB devices requiring more than 20mA.

    I tried the SD card reader first on my 3rd gen iPad and it worked perfectly. The transfer speed seemed faster than my PC. Both images and video were accessible and the interface was simple to use.

    Then I switched to the USB connector. I tried to be clever and plugged in a pen drive which had some pics on. I immediately got the message the device required too much power to operate. I then tried following the instructions (yes i am male)and connecting my Sony Alpha Digital SLR camera using then USB cable it was supplied with and like the SD card the images were transferred quickly and easily with no issues.

    I've also done the same test with my wife's Canon Ixus and had equally successful result.

    In all it does what I need it to and I've dropped a star because it would be nice if it read pen drives etc but I get the impression that is by design.

    I wish they did black peripherals though to go with my black iPad.

    iPad camera adapter

    • Written by from Wakefield

    I love my apple products owning iMac, mac air and iPad 2 not to mention iPhone and numerous iPods. However the camera adapter for the iPad is verging on the illegal. It's not fit for purpose, it would appear from what I can gather the latest update has reduced the current available via the dock from 100 to just 20 milli amps. Which basically means it won't work with the majority of cameras. The only alternative is to use the SD card reader.

    ...Simply brilliant!!

    • Written by from vejle

    And with the new iPhoto and the new iPad's display, it is simply brilliant. Take high resolution pictures e.g. with an DSLR camera, and then edit them with iPhoto, and enjoy them on The New iPad's display. Also works with your iPhone.

    Good but..... no HD film support!

    • Written by from Devizes

    Bought this so I could upload HD footage from a GoPro Head Camera, unfortunately the 1080p footage from the camera isn't supported, this may have been because of the iPad 2, i don't know!

    It works great for importing photos via USB or straight from the SD card, just not HD film!

    Allows GarageBand connection to a mid keyboard

    • Written by from ST. ALBANS

    The card reader with an Ipad2 works with my Panasonic DMC-TZ20. The USB connector also allows me to play into GarageBand on the Ipad from an electronic piano through an additional midi to USB connector.

    No Worries.

    • Written by from GLASGOW

    I tried the SD card reader for the first time today. Just happened that the first card I laid hands on contained 156 Leica M8 raw images, each 10 Mb in size. Everything - card reading, sending to Photo Stream, pictures arriving on my iMac via Photo Stream - worked perfectly, if rather slowly. I never use the camera connection cable, so that half of the kit is redundant and untried.

    The price is a bit high for an SD card reader these days, so only 4 stars.

    Great Idea, but...

    • Written by from LONDON

    ...Apple forgot to implement iCloud Photo Stream support. At least that's what the lady from Apple Care just confirmed to me. Photos imported straight to the iPad will not become available on your other iCloud enabled devices. Frankly, if I have to then connect my camera (or iPad) to my Mac again to sync them across here too, it seems like it's easier just to import via iPhoto or Aperture and then sync across that way. This will be returned asap.

    Just works!

    Does exactly what it's claimed to do. Tested with Sandisk SDHC card, Canon 50D camera, Fuji x10 camera. A good, if rather expensive accessory

    Great extra for the iPad

    • Written by from CHELTENHAM

    Bought this as I use my Canon 600D alot, but mainly on the road and didn't want to wait until I return home to import the photos in to my Mac.

    With the Camera Connection Kit, the new iPad's (3rd generation) retina screen and the iPhoto app - I can import, edit and upload to iCloud Photo Stream while on the go!

    Great job.

    Does exactly what it's suppose to

    • Written by from Bournemouth

    Bought this a few months ago to input photos from an SD card and it does exactly what it's suppose to. Maybe a little expensive but was very impressed that I bought something that was easy to use and worked straight away.

    Absolutely brilliant!!

    Worked straight out of the box and transferred all my photos from a Nikon D40 to iPad2. Read the few negative comments, but bought it happy in the knowledge of having a good guarantee from Apple. Love it!! Thanks Apple.

    Worked for me...

    • Written by from ramsgate

    Despite the various differences of opinion on this product, I took the plunge and found the product worked! I imported photos from:
    Nikon s8000 camera connection
    Olympus uTough camera connection
    Fuji finepix s2500hd
    SDHC class 10
    4gb SD card class 4
    Sandisk sd and transcend sd cards were tested using the sd adapter

    Packaging errr very small but then so are the units. Only downside as others have mentioned is the price.

    Good but pricey

    • Written by from High Wycombe

    Unlike a lot of other reviewers, I have found this device to work well. I have used it with a Fuji Coolpix and a Canon EOS 7D without issue. I would give it 5 stars, but the £25 price tag seems a bit steep.

    Apple card reader for IPad 2

    • Written by from Blackpool

    I received my I pad as a present for my birthday in January 2012. I purchased the apple IPad connection kit today. My IPad knows it is an Apple kit, but there is no way I can get it to load from an SD card. The USB connection slot will not load either.

    I am getting error messages to state that there is not enough memory. My SD card holds 3 photos amounting to less than 1mg. To say I am confused and disappointed is putting it mildly

    I contacted Apple but they didn't know why and advised I should take to an Apple store. The nearest store is over 50 miles away. They did say the connection device will not work with Sony. But I tried to load pictures taken by my phone, which is a Samson. I read some of the comments and it seems there is a problem with the memory on IPad 2'. However the Jury is out and I am open to suggestions. If it will not work I will give the kit to my son who has an IPad 1.

    If I can find an answer to the problem, if somehow it is my fault, then I shall write another review and upgrade the rating. I gave it 1 star because the IPad did recognise the connection. If, there is a problem with latest upgrades to IPad 2 then, hopefully Apple will sort it out. However, I must give the IPad full marks for an outstanding piece of equipment, which has given me hours of very interesting pleasure.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Does not work

    • Written by from Seattle

    I have a first gen. iPad with latest OS (as of Feb. 2012). USB adapter did not work with Nikon D200 or Canon SD880 and SD adapter did not work with a 16GB Sandisk Ultra. Also both adapters didn't feel very securely connected to the iPad - had a "third party" feel.
