Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit

  • Overview

    With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it's incredibly easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends.

    The kit includes two connectors, each with a different interface:

    • The Camera Connector features a USB interface. Just plug it into the dock connector port on your iPad, then attach your digital camera or iPhone using a USB cable (not included). iPhone 3G is not supported.
    • Use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from your camera's SD card. Connect it to your iPad, then insert your digital camera's SD card into the slot.

    After you make the connection, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organizes them into albums. When you sync iPad to your PC or Mac, the photos and videos on your iPad are added to your computer's photo library.

      The USB will work with many things, not just a camera!

      Things that I found out that you can plug in to the USB connection are USB headphones and USB headsets, USB keyboards and probably more things. If you buy the p Things that I found out that you can plug in to the USB connection are USB headphones and USB headsets, USB keyboards and probably more things. If you buy the package, it comes with two different products, one for a USB connection, and another for an SD card. Also, you can plug any iPhone to the USB port and get your photos off of the iPhone so you can view them on your iPad! This is a very nice product and nothing I would change. If you email the photos with the Mail app on the iPad, they are in 2048x1536 resolution rather than the iPhone's 800x600 emailed resolution. One last thing, once you connect to your Mac, iPhoto brings in full resolution images with EXIF information intact. Great job Apple! The iPad now has a USB port!

When connected an The first connector (30 pin of course) features a USB port allowing you to connect up either your digital camera or iPhone direct to the iPad. When connected an application automatically loads up displaying thumbs of images that are available on the camera or iPhone to download. You can then select what you want to copy over. Images are then synced with your PC or Mac is required. The next connector is almost the same but instead of connecting the camera direct to the iPad it features an SD card slot allowing images to be read directly from the memory card containing pictures. The same app (Photos) is opened up and the same interface.

      This worked great for me

      I had to review this item because of all the negative reviews. I bought this for my iPad 2 years ago. I never had any problems transferring my photos to my iPad I had to review this item because of all the negative reviews. I bought this for my iPad 2 years ago. I never had any problems transferring my photos to my iPad from the SD card. It does what it says and it's so easy to do. I now have the iPad Air 2 so I will now be purchasing a new lightning camera connection for that.

      Useless piece of plastic

      I spent over 30 bucks on this product to manage and edit media I capture with my DSLR camera. At the beginning worked really good to be frank, but after I updat I spent over 30 bucks on this product to manage and edit media I capture with my DSLR camera. At the beginning worked really good to be frank, but after I updated to iOS 8 this message "this accessory is not supported by this iPad" Screwed me up. they decided they wouldn't allow me to use my items any more without previous advise. Another great gesture form your behalf APPLE. Doesn't sound like a good idea to reimburse the cash?

      Why/how would you make an accessory obsolete with an OS upgrade?

      IPad 3, accessory worked fine on iOS 7.1. Upgraded to iOS 8.3, I now have a useless piece of plastic. What the...?
