    ...Simply brilliant!!

    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.

    Great extra for the iPad

    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.

    huge disappointment

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

    Great for assignments

    Just got this thing the other day and have to say its a must!

    I'm studying design and try to do as much of my assignments on the the iPad itself with pages etc. and use a lot of pictures within them. I found it very frustrating that I had to sync my iPad with my PC every time to get pictures to the iPad for use within the apps.

    This little accessory solved all my problems. Its fast, small and could not be easier to use.

    I love it! I don't know why i didn't get one months ago!

    excellent product - must have

    If you take digital pics and are away from home this is superb. Connect the adaptor to your ipad insert the SD card and pictures are immediately displayed on the screen, ready to import. The second adaptor features a usb input which you use with the lead provided with your camera. Once again plug the camera in and it is recognised as an external HDD where you can import pics you select and even format the drive once import is complete.

    I have three cameras I have used with both adaptors a Fuji, Panasonic Lumix and a Sony Cybershot and they all functioned beautifully. I recommend this product it was the best £25 I spent on ipad accessories, (ignore the poor ratings which I think are missleading)

    Very convenient bit of kit

    And it works fine with my iPad and Canon D550, whether I use the card reader or the USB connector....

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    Useful, but could be better

    This little piece of kit serves it's purpose largely for me but it's not perfect...

    Firstly, it doesnt allow you to preview photos from the sd card full screen, you only get the same thumbnail view as you get in iPhoto, you have to import them to be able to view them full screen.

    Secondly, doesn't support much in terms of power output, I thought I might be able to use a lightweight USB card reader to import photos from friends and families cameras. After all, not everyone has sd cards or can easily lay their hands on their camera cable. Plugging in a card reader results in a "this device requires too much power" message.

    Lastly, doesn't import videos from my panny cameras, guess I can't complain though as the video format isn't in the supported formats list, but I think this is a typical Apleism!

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Camera connection kit and Olympus Tough 3000

    I bought one of the connector kits and the card reader works well, but it will not work via USB and the Olympus Tough 3000. I have contacted Olympus Europe and they say the camera complies with the relevant USB standards, so perhaps the Apple kit may not?

    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.
