    Fantastic!

    I did not know this was available when I first got my iPad and was disappointed there was no easy way to upload my pictures.
    When I found out this was available I was over the moon and I still am. It is fantastic super easy and quick to use. Thanks Apple.

    ipad 2 camera connection kit

    Read the reviews and although some weren't good thought I would take a chance as the kit seemed to be exactly what I needed. It arrived quickly and works like a dream. I used it with my SD card from my Canon SLR and I would recommend it, I think it is compact and does what it says it does, its perfect if you travel a lot. I would give it 5 stars more if it were possible.

    Imports images no problem - 1* review by MM is not the whole story

    I have a iPad 2 with OS5, the camera connection kit works fine with my collection of ageing Canons, Kodaks, and Nikons.

    The problem MM reports is only an issue if your camera insists on being powered by the PC when downloading images. Most cameras can be set to do this and thereby save their own battery charge, but most can also be set to not allow this to occur and hence should work fine.

    MM may have one of the few cameras that don't give the user the option, but this will be a very small minority in my experience. So buy with confidence, and if you are one of the unluky few the Apple 40 day return garantee will take care of you (when you by direct from them).

    PS I'm not a Apple agent or even a big fan, just a very pleased user who has found the iPad a very useful way to review his images after a shoot.

    Does not work with new os

    Agree with previous review. This worked well and then we upgraded to IOS 4.3.3 and now it no longer works!
    Frustrating and waste of money

    A bit disappointed...

    ...that you do not seem to be able to view photos full frame before importing. This would be really useful as one could then leave the ones to be kept on the card without necessarily importing them. This is important if you are shooting RAW because the files are so large that they are better left on the card. It would be really be helpful to view shots full frame and delete the poor ones. It is very often difficult to do this on the camera.

    Only import few photos

    I have almost 2.500 photos and few videos (~3GB data) stored in an micro-sd. Using CCK, it imports around 50 photos or something like that...

    Extreme III & Ultra II Sandisk cards

    Ipad2 & adapter seems picky to what SD will work ?
    Does not recognise the Ultra II SD card the Extreme III card worked fine
    Unlucky if you try the ultra card and it does not work may be worth giving it a go with an extreme card as a solution
    good luck

    Here is the problem I'm having with the CCK

    OK Here is the problem I amn having with the CCK (or wiperhpas it is an issue with iOS5).

    First, I was using theCCK under iOS 4.3 without difficulty. I have both the Apple CCK and a thrid party one for CF cards. Both work fione.

    However, a peculiar thing has happened since upgrading my iPad2 to iOS 5. I frequently upload hi-res images (e.g., 4288X2848 12.2mp, etc.) from my Nikon cameras to my iPad2 using the Apple Camera Connection Kit. Prior to iOS 5, I had no issues; all images were transferred and stored, and loaded/recognized by literally dozens of my photo apps in their native resolution.

    After an upgrade to iOS 5, all the hi-res images restored to my iPad during the process that had been there from those previous uploads and new camera uploads since the upgrade, are being loaded into many/most apps at a much lower resolution, e.g., 2048X1360 (2.8mp). I have several EXIF viewer apps that report the correct native resolution (and all other metadata), but several EXIF viewer apps show the lower resolution of the exact same image. I have copied the images back to my PC and they are in fact still 12mp hi-resolution as they came out of the cameras, so it has something to do with the "hand off" of images from storage to the individual apps as they load them.

    Images uploaded via iTunes, which I understand are "optimized" to a medium res by iTunes during the upload, are correctly reported/loaded at the same resolution exactly as stored. Even hi-res images transferred via wifi applications to the Camera Roll are reported correctly by all EXIF and photo editing apps. It is only the ones being uploaded via the camera connection kit that are "downsampled" when read by most (but not all) apps. I have tried three different cameras, all Nikons.

    I wonder if anyone else has exeperienced this, and can confirm this for me, and if this is a bug in IOS 5, or is the OS handing off "optimized" versions of the images to those apps? And why do some apps load the high resolution image without difficulty, is that an app "programming issue"?

    Those of you using the CCK, please check the EXIF data and see what gets reported.

    Works like a charm

    At first I was quite reluctant to buy this kit. I heard rumors that it will not work with iPad 2 after I upgrade to iOS5 and that it only imports lower quality jpegs or that it doesn't work with SanDisk SD cards. All of this is a big lie!

    My CCK works with iPad 2 with iOS 5.0.1 no problem. And I only use SanDisk Extreme class 10 cards. And I just confirmed that it really imports unaltered RAW files as taken by my DSLR.

    It's a very handy piece of kit for any photographer with the iPad at hand. It's a fast and very effective way to show off your work. People love to see their pictures right after you take them and the iPad with CCK is a great way to do just that!

    Works perfectly!

    Got this today and it works perfectly. I have absolutely no idea why this has so many negative reviews!
    I first tried my Sandisk SD card and it worked perfectly first time. Then I tried my Sony a SLR via USB and again, worked perfectly. Then my Canon Powershot SX 220 via USB, and again worked perfectly.
    I'm not sure if previous problems have been caused by old iOS versions (my iPad 2 is running iOS 5.0.1), but I really don't understand the negative reviews.
    This makes the iPad 2 perfect, so if you're considering buying it, go for it. I'm really very glad I did!!

    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.

    huge disappointment

    ios 5 killed the functionality of the camera kit with the iphone;
    limiting a perfect adapter for artistic expression.

    Doesn 't work since upgrade-very disappointing

    I agree with previous two reviewers - a product that worked perfectly, now doesn't work at all since upgrade, a total waste of money. More than the money, disappointment at being unable to send photos home to loved ones.

    Second problem as a result of last upgrade - a purchased App just disappeared & it took several days to have reloaded.

    iPad is first Apple product I've purchased & not likely to be rushing out to buy more if this is what I can expect.

    Suddenly doesn't work

    I am puzzled and disappointed..... Used the card reader once with my parents camera (don't remember which brand of sd card) and it worked perfectly. Then, after the recent IOS update, I tried it with my card- SanDisc ultra 32 GB HC, and it doesnt recognize it. I could understand if it was a lousy sd card, but SanDisc is a fairly mainstream brand. I also tried the direct USB dongle, and again it didn't work. I have a canon eos rebel, again not a rummage sale camera. This is the first time I have had an apple product give out on me, and I am not happy.

    very disappointing, it doesn't work any more

    Since upgrading my iPhone 4 this kit is no longer recognised by the iPhone. So I can't transfer videos from the phone to the iPad. What a disappointment that is. Its pointless getting the iPhone 4s if one can't transfer the video to iPad.
