Yes. I use it with a Moultrie and stealth cams.

The short answer is YES. However, in order to view the game camera photos or videos, you will have to download the images to your IOS device. When you plug the SD card in to the reader, the Photo App will open and show you small thumbnails of the image files on the SD card. Unfortunately, they are very small and hard to see any detail. If your game cameras is setup as mine are, there can be several hundred new photos on each camera each time I check it. It is very frustrating to have to download all of the images to be able to determine which images you want to view full size! Also, some IOS devices do not have enough internal memory to store all of the game camera images! This product does what it is advertised to do very well, but it is a PITA to use for viewing lots of photos on a SD card!!!! (Apple should update their Photo App to allow the user to "Preview" images on the SD card, prior to downloading the image files!)

Can I write to a SD card via the SD reader or is it read only?
