    Doesn’t work on ios12

    • Written by ian R from sunbury

    I updated my IPad mini to the the latest version mini 4. I recently tried to use the camera connection kit but wouldn’t work. I rang apple and spoke to get someone to get help. I spent about an hour on the phone with no success and told to book in to speak to a technician. I tried it on my previous mini running iOS 9 and it worked but will not work on iOS 12. I tried my wife’s phone my phone my wife’s iPad all running iOS 12 but nothing worked. Apple need to get their act together and fix it.

    So far only 1 star until they can get the camera kit working.

    • Written by Rusty M from Victoria

    I'm a apple user for sure but I'm very disappointed about the camera connection kit I bought for my Apple iPad 2 for my DJ controller. I did my research and knew that I'd need a powered USB hub so I got a certified data 4 port hub 3.0 to help power my controller. Once I hooked everything up I kept getting messages stating that my USB 2.0 requires too much power. Well that doesn't make sense cause that's why I got the hub to help power my midi device. If anyone could help out with some advice about what I'm doing wrong or what I'm missing that would be great. I've read lots reviews saying that after version 9.0 the camera kit has gone kaput. If that's so I'm very disappointed and a big turn off from Apple products. I would've been better off spending my money on a sure deal!!!!

    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.

    Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit is an useless piece of hardware after iOS9

    • Written by Ho Yip K from Hong Kong

    I was using my said kit as USB MIDI connectivity and working fine when my iPad is still on iOS7. As having new synth apps to use, I have no choice but to upgrade my iPad to iOS9 for apps compatibility. Unfortunately, the kit is no longer usable with a message prompted "This accessories is no longer supported....." everytime I try to plug it into my iPad. Absolutely disappointed with the way Apple has treated this.

    Outrageous price for such a simple thing. After market ones don't seem to work. Is that Apple blocking them?

    Uploading photos to iPad with Lightning Card Reader

    • Written by Robert O from Plymouth

    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

    • Written by alixander B from rochdale

    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

    • Written by Joseph H from Peterborough

    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.

    Does not work

    • Written by Bart L from Richmond

    I can connect my Canon T4i to it, and the iPad recognizes it. When I click Import All, the camera lights up and the iPad seems to be importing. But the end result is a exclamation point (!), and the photo is not uploaded.

    I'm not sure if it's the SD card? I'm using a Sandisk 32 Gb Class 10 card. Or maybe there's just a bug between the iPad and the camera?

    Works very well

    • Written by Michael L from Moorhead

    I purchased the camera connection kit for my iPad 2 and couldn't be more pleased. I took several test photos with my T3i, plugged the SD card into the adapter and into the iPad. It was immediately recognized, brought up the photos and gave options for importing or deleting. Once imported I could delete the photos from the card and it was ready to go back in the camera. This couldn't have been easier. It does exactly what I expected it to do.
    I haven't tried the USB adapter yet but that wasn't crucial for my needs. If that works well it will just be an added plus.

    Very limited

    • Written by Rachid H from Mechelen

    Only works with a very limited number of products, even has problems identifying apple products. Micro sd adapters for example will not be recognised by the sd plug, most USB devices will also be unable to connect including apple products. None of my USB devices works with the USB plug. Ipad 3rd generation crashes or freezes for long periods while using any of these two devices. I find this another example of apples demise and out of touch with the wide range of products consumers use these days.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit (30 pin)

    • Written by Rajat V from Singapore

    The product is good. Enables me to transfer the pics from Camera or any other storage (needs few steps) to my iPAD generation 3 on iOS6.

    For images from iPhoto or other devices like hard disk/ USB, the location needs to be in the folders as created by the camera. Then improt all the pics into iPhoto. This is to ensure Mac faily of OS recognise the pictures.

    Now connect to the iPAD via Adaptor and you should be able to see all the pictures as ready for import.

    I loooove the camera connection kit! It's so fast, and easy to use. I love putting my photos on my iPad instead of having to load them on my laptop. Once your photos on on your iPad, it makes it easy to post to Facebook or share with friends.
