    Doens't work at all

    I bought the connectioin kit and tried it with an SD card. It's fails with the message that the device is incompatible. With the SD in the camera then: it fails, it uses too much power. A usb thumb drive? It fails. a usb harddrive with it's own power? it fails, because the device uses too much power.
    Don't buy it, it is useless.

    Apple has done it again!!

    This product is just AMAZING!!!! I just got them and they work super well! I am so happy that they are a good price! If it was me, I probably would have priced it about $20 more! They are wonderful because I want to have all my pics on my iPad, but its a nuisance to carry around by any body of water, and it's more likely to get stolen. But with the cam connection kit, I don't have to bring it anywhere where I want to take pics! I can just bring my camera. Get this if you are afraid of dropping and breaking your iPad, getting it wet, or getting it stolen! TRUST ME! It's worth the $30!!!!!

    Works Perfectly!

    After reading a lot of mixed reviews, I was even more confused than Einstein creating his theory of relativity. All bad reviews are actually not because of the product being faulty or its functionality being faulty rather the bad reviewers either have bad quality SD cards which iPad doesn't recognize or they have bad cameras which do not connect . I have tested a Transcend 32GB SD HC Class 10 card and a Toshiba 8GB SD HC Class 4 card, both of them worked perfectly. The camera I connected to the kit was a Canon 60D Digital SLR and what luck didn't give me any problems at all too. So to conclude the kit works as described in the store without any regrets I love the accessebility it offers on the go. Btw I tested the kit on an iPad 2nd generation so people who have written bad reviews about this kit might have an older iPad or an older software version. I suggest before rating anything people should at least check if their iPad isn't at fault. i would give it 6 stars if possible as I'm a professional photographer and this kit lowers the weight of my total baggage by around 40% and removes the need to carry a laptop everywhere when iPad is such appropriately sized.

    Great accessory, one recommendation

    Love the sd card reader AND the USB connector; however, due to the size of the Nikon files, it would be much more helpful if we were able to view the files BEFORE importing them to the iPad 2...and I haven't found a way to do that with other than thumbnails. Help, please. Thanks.

    amazing results

    I bought this so we could down;oad our photos of Hokkaido and it worked flawlessly every time with two different cameras one Sony Cybershot and my Nikon L110. every day we uploaded all our photos to the Ipad then uploaded them to the cloud using dropbox for our friends and relatives. It worked as advertised I am very happy with it.

    Does NOT work with video camera

    I bought this so I could directly download our dog show videos to the iPad for viewing. Says there is not enough power to run the device. Don't buy this if you want to download video direclty from the camera. Since that is the only thing I wanted to directly download to the iPad, it is pretty useless to me.

    Useless for CF cards

    I have a DSLR camera and wanted to be able to download photos to my iPad but I can use any card readers cause it's says the reader draws to much power and I can't connect my camera directly because it's unsupported...why bother having this product if you can't even use it for USB devices. Incredibly disappointed and would not have purchased if I knew CF card readers weren't supported.

    Ipad2 & sony cyber shot

    The connector kit was a great gadget for initially uploading 800+ photos from a sony cyber shot......until i wanted to repeat the process a few weeks later. I get an error message "device uses too much power" every time. I have plugged and unplugged the usb, camera and connector kit in every order possible multiple times to no avail. The ipad has been reset and the camera battery is fully charged and still nothing. What a waste.

    iPad Camera Connection Kit worth the money!

    What a great buy! There were six of us on a cruise - I used the attachment to download everyone's photos from their SD card to my iPad every day, and at the end of the trip everyone got a CD with ALL of the vacation photos and videos. Made it very easy to share the whole library. Helpful hint - if you do this, integration is easier if you make sure everyone's camera is set to the same date/time - makes it much easier to organize photos.

    Awesome product!!

    A great accessory for anyone using their iPad for photos. (Which is just about everyone!) Best accessory I have purchased for any of my iOS devices.

    I recommend this highly!

    Dead useful little gadget

    What will they think of next! Just picked this up for my iPad 2 and I am so happy with how easy it is to 'lock and load'...I used the USB cable connection for both direct to the camera and a card reader for another external memory card. Worked perfectly! I love being able to bypass my PC to load just a few pictures to the device. Now, WHY can't this thing also be compatible with iPods and iPhones? That would be perfection.

    Lets state the obvious...

    I'm a huge Apple fan, with that said, why don't iPad users have the ability to plug a usb flash storage (thumb drive) into our iPads and transfer files? The only reason I can see is that Apple doesn't want to give up the ability to sell 3 different iPads based on storage size. Come on Apple, please get back to making devices that made your customers completely happy, not just a little happy. For this reason, I will only give 2 stars to this adapter set.

    Perfect accessory for photographers

    I recently used the Camera Connection Kit to upload over 800 photos to my iPad2. It took very little time and worked flawlessly. One of the best buys I've made and perfect for any photographer.

    Useful, no fuss, and small

    I have owned the Connection Kit for a few months now. The USB interface has turned out to be more universal than the SD card interface. My camera can be accessed with both but I prefer to pop out the SD card because there is no fumbling with a cable and plug. But recently, while on vacation, I wanted to transfer pictures from other cameras and they used an xD card. I did not have a cable so was dead in the water. Yesterday I bought a USB-A to both mini-B and micro-B cable from iGo. This adapter is about the same size as one of the interfaces so is a nice match. I know there are still cameras that don't use a standard USB plug but I am closer to universal access now.

    In all cases that I have used these interfaces with SD cards and cameras, they simply work. When tried on my iPod touch 4th generation or with other USB devices, I get an error message. Fair enough.

    Take on vacation

    I just took this little connector on vacation and it was amazing. Photos straight from camera to pad (thus freeing up the camera memory) and then straight from pad to flickr (freeing up the pad memory). Invaluable addition to the trip!

    it works on my 2 cameras

    It works both on my D40 & D90 but the only downside is you cannot ZOOM IN the picture if you don't import.I'll be returning this tomorrow.
