    Canon 40D + USB Connection - Transfers photos to iPad easily!

    Was skeptical at first because I could not find a list of compatible cameras for this accessry. But I bought in a "crunch" situation and it worked 100%! 29.99 is a little high, but it does the job! In the package there are 2 pamphlets for product info and in one I noticed this on the bottom of page 4... "To see which cameras are compatible with the iPad Camera Connection Kit, go to: www(dot)apple(dot)com/support/ipad
    Hope this helps! Good luck!

    Works great on Panasonic Lumix LX5

    Both adaptors work flawlessly when I connected my Lumix LX5 using the USB adaptor and when using the SD card adaptor. Very easy to use and it makes downloading pictures into a hard drive very easy. There are two choices, either import all pictures or import the selected pictures. There is also an option to delete the pictures after importing them to the ipad.

    I read another person's review saying how the USB could be used for other devices other than the camera connection. I am slightly addicted to external hard drives so I tried connecting my WD portable hard drive and desktop external hard drive to the ipad and neither worked. Portable hard drive gave "too much power required" error and the desktop hard drive didn't even load up. I tried using a small flash drive but that didn't work either.

    Awesome! I love it.

    I have had the product for about a month and have no complaints. I have used it to pull images from my Canon 5D MkII, SD cards, an older Canon ELF and my IPhone 4 and they all worked great! It will copy the video from the 5D MkII but the iPad will not play it, however I read about that before hand and it's not a big deal.

    On a recent camping trip I used it to pull pictures and video from the iPhone to the iPad so I could show everyone in our group. Needless to say that was pretty popular. I also used it to back up my images from the 5D as it copies raw (CR2) as well as JPEG files. It's much handier than hauling a laptop around. And, I saved the day when I accidentally formatted a memory card but luckily I had backed the images to the iPad earlier. Using a free piece of software called "iPhone Explorer" I easily copied the images from my iPad back to the computer.

    Did not work

    I tried this and it worked with difficulty once, the second time not at all. I get photos now into my ipad via web albums, but can't use the ipad to download photos when traveling.

    Waste of money

    It worked only once. The second time did not work. I paid 30 euros for this accessory and I cannot use it! I feel cheated.

    SD adaptor

    I purchased the camera adeaptor kit, plugged my camera chip into the adaptor, plugged the adaptor into the iPad and the system worked flawlessly. All the photos showed up on the screen -- selecting the ones to upload was simple, and uploading was no problem. I am totally impressed with ease of use and convenience of this adaptor.

    Very basic

    It would be complete if you can view your photos in full screen to determine which ones you're going to keep/delete. I'm a photographer and this feature will help a lot, because it will allow us to share/edit/work with photos instantly. Hope in a future software update.

    Works excellent with Sony Products

    I have Sony HD Camcorder, Sony HD Waterproof Camera and using this adapter was easy....plug and connect, download begins immediately on the iPad screen!!! A lot faster than booting up your computer...this way you don't need a computer..after it's done you can watch picture slide shows with your own music on the iPad or upload pics on FB! Love it!!!!! I'm planning on buying the HDMI connector for the iPad to the HD TV so I can play the slide shows on the Big Screen and watch it with my family after our trip to Disney and Universal!!!

    SD Will Not Work!!

    Tried reseting,restarting ipad 2... I exchanged connection kit thinking it was defective.. Also bought a new SD card thinking that surely was the Problem!!! NOPE!!! Then I did my research.. Started reading REVIEWS... Guess What I Found OUT!! RESTRICTIONS RESTRICTIONS!!!
    APPLE GET A LIFE!! Restrictions are for FREE not PAID for items!! I Paid $699.99 for MY ipad 2 (which I Love very much)!! Then bought a $29.99 Connection Kit (which I Returned for a REFUND) that will not work because Some APPLE wants Restrictions!! All I want to do Is put MY STUFF on MY ipad 2! If desktops and laptop companies did the same thing they probably would probably restrict loading to ipads from itunes....It Works BOTH Ways!!! Let people buy your products and USE THEM...NOT BORROW THEM... People will buy even more extras...

    Not working at all..Dissapointed

    It was not working on my iPad 2. When I slot in with the SD Card, it won't respond at all even though I have thousands of pictures inside the SD card.

    Used 1 times and no longer works...

    I used it once and it does not work anymore!

    The only time i tried it, it was impossible to read my GoPro camera files, but it showed the thumbnail of the video. For my movies, i have to convert them evrytime...

    Not compatible with every camera

    I have a very recent camera (just bought it June 2011) and the adaptor doesn't work with it. Don't tell me I should've checked first : I looked everywhere and couldn't find a list of compatible cameras.

    When I bought the adaptor I also thought it would be useful with many other things... not realizing that most of the use I would have would be to charge those things (not transfer data), and the iPad won't do that.
    So if you're thinking this adaptor will be the thing to finally enable you to charge a PSP, an eReader or whatever other gadget you have that charges using a USB cable... this won't do it.

    It does seem to work with most SD cards, so if your camera uses those it's just as well.

    Not for professionals

    This item works fine with my point and shoot camera, but doesn't like professional cameras. If I use my Canon 50D it will work through the USB adapter but when I connect my 5D it won't allow me to do anything. Also worth noting is it doesn't work with a card reader so if you are at a wedding or an event and wanted to share some photos you need to connect the camera directly to the iPad using the USB adapter rendering your camera useless for the duration of the import. This is assuming it will even work with your camera. I had high hopes for this device but it looks like I will need to purchase a laptop again for travel. It's a shame because I sold my MacBook to buy this iPad with this in mind specifically.

    Best iPad accessory ever!

    This is the best gadget ever for avid photographers! I was looking for a convenient external hard drive to immediately transfer my photos rather than waiting to get back to my computer. My concern was making sure my memory card didn't get corrupted, lost, etc. Not only does this easily and quickly perform that function, but it provides automatic beautiful display of the photos! You can import some or all photos, delete some or all, etc. Well worth the price!

    iPad MUST have, for everyone

    I am a musician, and iI bought this camera connection kit mainly because I just found ot that it can provide sounds to midi controllers, and I can actually do recordings with the GarageBand app from my full sized keyboard, instead of the digital keyboard of the app. It also works with many other USB devices such as typing keyboards, MIDI controllers, and...yeah well, cameras too. iPads should be selling with this thing on a package

    Not all it's cracked up to be

    The iPad aadapter only partly works. The SD card reader works like a charm, the iPhone connects with th e USB adaapter and transfers like a dream. However, connecting a camera directly cause a error, which basically states that "the device takes too much power". Can't even plug in a simple USB drive and download the photos without getting this error. Too bad cause I am now trying to find an alternative so I can connect my Samsung and Canon digital cameras to work.

    I bought the connection Kit, it's very practice and easy to download pictures from my camera to the ipad, light and easy to take in a handbag, during the trips, work and to everywhere...

    Work as stated

    First, I haven't tried the USB connector, so I can't comment. BUT, I do use the SD reader frequently to download RAW photos from a Canon 60D to my iPad when traveling and have had no problems to date.
    Copying the photos to a PC afterwards is also as simple as copying from one drive (the iPad) to another (the PC).
