Will the iPad USB connector allow me to connect my Garmin 305 Gps watch and transfer data into Garmin Connect through Safari?Answer
Further to posting this question, I have subsequently purchased the Camera Connection Kit and now know that it doesn't allow my iPad to communicate with the Garmin 305. It does, however, charge the watch if that is of any use to anyone.
The issue, I believe, is that the iPad will not allow me to download the Garmin Communicator Safari add-on which allows the watch to upload to the Internet.
Our friends at Garmin need to develop an 'ap'...
On the Camera Connection Kit, it works perfectly with my Canon EOS 5 and happily downloads images and movies from my iPhone 3Gs. It fails miserably when trying to download movies either directly from the Panasonic camera or using the SD adapter.

You can import videos but you will not be able to play them. They need to be moved to your computer and imported into itunes. Highlight the video and under the Advanced menu, choose 'create iPad version'. The finished product can be moved onto the iPad as a playable video

Can I upload ONLY JPEG images and NOT RAW images to the iPad? I shoot using both, but I only want to send the .jpeg imaged to the iPad through this.
This is a deciding factor of buying an iPad, or getting a cheaper netbook that I know will do what I want it to.

Yes. When you connect your device to the ipad the photos app opens and you upload them by either copy and paste or going through the options menu and pressing a button that will say something like 'UPLOAD'.

I had wondered the same thing so I took my iPad and 50D to the apple store and tried it before buying. It does work if you connect the camera using a USB cable. It does not work with a card reader. This will prevent you from shooting while transferring photos which is not good if youre a pro, but at least you can transfer them. I don't see a way to upload directly through Facebook's website but you can use the iPhone app. I'm sure there are 3rd party apps that would work, but it would be nice if they created an iPad specific app..

Yes you can view NEFs and my iPad stores NEF's just fine. When you hook it up to either Aperture or Lightroom you can transfer the NEFs from the iPad (via import) to either program.

Can you use the Lightning adaptor with the 30 pin camera kit to import to iPad Air/iPhone 5s and if so how?
I have the 30 pin usb and sd connection kit. When I upgraded to an iPad Air and iPhone 5s, I purchased a lightning to 30 pin adaptor so I could still import photos directly to my iPad Air and IPhone. It doesn't work. Why?
I am disappointed as I was told that this would be a compatible option as opposed to purchasing a new lightning camera adaptor kit!

Will the iPad Camera Connection Kit be compatible with my iPad Mini 2?
I own a Nikon D3200 and I want to use my iPad Mini 2 for my portfolio, so I need a device to transfer the photos onto my iPad. On the compatibility section, it doesn't state if this device will be compatible with the iPad Air or any of the iPad Mini's. If anyone could help answer my question, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Yes. I have heard of people using it to plug in their USB keyboards in, as long as the keyboard does not require drivers.

I'm answering my own question here. Yes, now I've bought one I've found out that some keyboards (without extra usb hub ports like the apple ones) will work but the Footime foot controller doesn't work with ForScore since the foot controller uses page up and down to switch pages and ForScore uses arrow left/right.
I've spoken to developers from both sides and they are all looking into it.
Hope this helps people.
