    Disappointed...

    I got this mainly for video. Connecting, it was fine for photos, so no issues there, but the video end of things has been very frustrating. I tried .mov files, and nothing came up, I just could not see anything in the import bit, and then tried MP4 and still nothing came up. I'd previously tried other formats but none of them worked. So what's the solution then? I have videos on various formats but none of them get recognised when I use the kit. I can't recommend it because it hasn't worked for me although other people don't seem to have the same problem.

    Uploading photos to iPad with Lightning Card Reader

    I had a lot of problems trying to upload photos to my iPad from an SD Card when using a Lightning SD card Reader. But I have solved my problem, when I noticed that if the Photos had been saved on to my Windows PC, and saved in a Named Folder and consequently the individual photos in that folder had been named by the same name as the Main folder, then they were not recognized. But when the individual photos had not been named and were just identified as IMG files, then they were recognized by the iPad and uploaded straight away. HOPE THIS HELPS IN SOME WAY

    Perfect for 1080p video imports

    I recently bought a GoPro Hero 4 silver camera, and own an iPad 3rd gen, you can inport hi res pictures wirelessly, but when it cames to video, I found it would only be low res, and poor quality Finnish, so, I decided to purchase this connection kit, not knowing if it would work, I was very pleased to find it imported 1080p 60fps perfectly from my 32gb class 10 San disk extreme Micro SD card, However it won't import anything higher like 1440p 2.7k or 4k
    This makes it very handy for posting 1080p straight to YouTube or into any ISO video editor.
    Quite happy with this item

    At a loss with camera connection kit

    I'm at a loss, none of the camera connection kits are working on my iPad mini and I don't understand why. When I plug the connection kit into my iPad mini a message pops up saying
    "this cable or accessory is not certified and my not work reliably with this IPad"
    Can I fix this, if I can how? If I can't can someone please give me advice on what to do?
    Software version is iOS 8.4
    Thank you.

    Disappointed

    I have managed to download photos from SD Card but very disappointed that
    I could not download the 3 videos which were on the Card.
    I had tried to download direct from Sony Cybershot camera using USB Connector but
    Message came up saying 'the connected device requires too much power
    I am disappointed that I cannot download the videos and would be grateful for
    Any advice or useful suggestions to get the videos on to IPad or iPhone 5C

    The best way to import photos

    Bought this product so I could import and upload photos from my Samsung NX when travelling, and it works perfectly !! I always import photos via SD-card and the import with the camera connector is even faster and easier than on the computer !
    I bought it although I had my concerns because of all the negative reviews, but I am positively surprised !
    There might be a problem with it, if you connect your camera and it demands the USB as a power source, but what is the problem with using your SD card ?

    Camera connection Kit as audiophile connection kit

    To my big surprise I just discovered that the USB connection works very well with my digital amplifiers USB interface. Very clear and detailed sound with HD Track recordings...

    Help!

    Ok so I can download photos easily, so far so good but why can't I download any videos from my video camera. I am using the SD card but it says no pictures to import and I can't work out what I am doing wrong. I can download them to my lap top but not my i pad. Is it the video camera (Panasonic)

    Does Exactly What It Says On the Tin !

    Just received mine and tried it out.
    Photos and video from my Canon & Sony cameras transfer to my iPad with no issues whatsoever.
    Top marks for a simple and very useful product.

    Minimal functionality.

    OK - you can load pics from SD cards from (certain) cameras. End of story. Thought I would be able to use it to import pics from my PC, via the SD card. No way. Appears not to read the photo files direct, but only via the index used by a camera. Similatly, won't read a USB stick with pics on it. And the SD card mounted in a USB card carrier yields "too much power". WHY do Apple take so much trouble to make life difficult?

    Works great with musicians

    I use this to hook my iPad with Retina Display to my Behringer Mixer using the Lightning to 30-pin adapter (cordless) and Behringer UCA222. Also works great with cameras but my old Sony Bloggie is not supported (uses too much power). Apple please help!

    Dont even think about buying....

    What an utter waste of money!

    My Pro SLR doesnt use SD cards. Ok fair enough, that was obvious, but no USB reader, even independantly powered ones read in the device. So it cannot be used. What good is that? just comes up with a message saying the device uses too much power. What?

    Add to that the fact that the USB reader is only for photographic files and nothing else and Apple have just boosted their profit level again.

    I am a big Apple user, but am becoming disillusioned with their products and attitude.

    One star is too great a credit for this derisory product.

    Plug and Play

    It arrived
    I opened the packing
    I switched on my Lumix G
    I switched on my iPad 2
    I plugged in the USB cable into the camera
    I plugged the adapter into the iPad
    I plugged the cable into the adapter
    Software started and opened an import page showing me all the photos.
    You could pick to delete or import either single shots or all of them
    SD card adapter was just as simple. What more do you want????

    No longer works

    I used this to copy photos from my iPhone 4 to my iPad 2 while on holiday & it worked great. I've now upgraded to an iPhone 5 & a new iPad (ie 3rd Gen) and all I get is a "accessory not supported" message when I connect it to my iPad.

    *sigh*

    Contrary to Other peoples reviews..

    Ive had this camera connector since the 1st Gen iPad came out and I've never had an issue with the results its always connected fine with my iPad and surprisingly the iPad could even read my RAW files from a Samsung NX10, a Nikon D5100 and now my Nikon D800, I cannot vouch for any other cameras as I havent tried them with it, I usually plug the SD card in rather than the camera wire, although transfer speeds seem pretty much the same.
    I'm planning to upgrade my iPad when the new one comes out early 2013 which i assume will use the lightning adapter like in the new iPhone so i suppose i'll have to get a new adapter, its just a shame you cant use this adapter with the iPhone 4S but all in all i think this is a good product and fits my needs.

    Big Let down

    Got this to go through camera photos while on holiday and sort them on the card , ie delete them from the card , but you have to copy them to the I pad before you can do any thing to them , does not help when you have a 32gb camera card and only a 16 gb iPad with 2gb free space
    . I just wish you could view photos from card and delete the dodgy ones with out copying them to the I pad . And a shame you can't copy/ move them back from the iPad to the card :-(

    Camera connection kit and Flip video

    Using ipad 3 the camera connection kit works great with the Flip mino hd 3rd gen video camera. Just plug it in and all the files upload direct from the camera. I also use iMovie. The price is a bit steep at £25.00 but then it's an Apple!

    Check camera settings for USB power!

    Just got one of these and using with Sony dsc-hx5. Initially got the error USB requires too much power. However a tip on another forum suggested looking at camera settings and turning the USB power function off. Found it under memory card settings turned it off and hey presto works a treat. Worth checking your camera settings if you get this error

    Tempremental

    I have found the camera kit very unreliable. It connected perfectly to my ipad then became tempremental. Now it no longer works and tells me It takes too much power. I cannot find a fix for this any where. Come on Apple get your act in gear as I love it when it works........
