    Essential for on-the-go photography

    • Written by from London

    Finally I can add JPGs and RAWs to my iPad, to edit and send as previews (heavy editing, I still do on the Mac). The import could not be easier, and works with images and videos. A lot quicker than some of the current WiFi and camera app connections.

    I had the take off 1 star however, as the adapter does not work with my iPhone 5S.
    No problems on the iPad Mini 2 though.

    Works for me

    • Written by from Glasgow

    I was put off buying this by all the negative reviews but I went ahead and bought it so I could backup my holiday photos while on holiday without having to take my MacBook Pro (instead I could take my far lighter and easier to carry iPad Mini). Works great and it was a great relief to be able to backup holiday snaps.

    Does what it says

    • Written by from Stony Stratoford

    This adapter does exactly, what it says on the tin. It imports photos (JPG or RAW) from SD card to iPad into the IMPORT folder of photo app. Did not try to import video.
    4 stars only, because it's missing some feedback, like LED showing wether or not the card is inserted correctly or not. Also, price is steep. 15 GBP would be plenty sufficient...

    Works brilliantly on my iPad air iOS7

    • Written by from Beckenham

    Bought the lightning sd reader apprehensively after reading the reviews on it. Thought I was going to have loads of problems and have to take it back but guess what, it works perfectly!

    I am using a 64GB ipad air, SanDisk Ultra 16gb sdhc card with photos taken on a Fuji X20 and the transferring works like a dream. Plug it in and the Photos app opens. The import it fairly quick and you can then delete from the SD card if you want.

    Haven't given 5 stars as it is a little pricey.

    Works for me - NEX-F3

    • Written by from London

    I have a Sony NEX-F3 and it works fine with my iPad mini. I place the SD card in the reader, attach to the iPad and the Camera Roll pops up asking to import the photos. You can then import them into the camera roll which can then be accessed in iPhoto or synced to a computer.

    It would be nice if you could browse the photos on the card in fullscreen prior to importing, but just like in iPhoto on the Mac you can't, for some strange reason.

    Will be handy on holidays when I don't have my Mac so I can save some storage on the SD card by importing to the iPad.

    Does exactly what the name suggests.

    • Written by from LOWESTOFT

    Although some people complain that you can't transfer other things like music or games over this peripheral, that's the nature of Apple. What you can do though is exactly what the name suggests and what the thing was made for.

    Whilst out and about I can easily take pictures using my SLR and then put my SD card into the Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader and pop that into the lightening port. This then allows me to transfer my pictures straight to the iPad and into it's camera roll without needing a computer.

    Although it may be a bit pricey, the iPhone 5 doesn't support it and it's only limited to transferring pictures, it does exactly what I need and is very simple to use whilst also being compact.
