    Works Excellent with Nikon D90

    I photograph in the field and wanted a larger screen to view my photos on the fly without having to open up a larger notebook computer. The iPad and the camera connection kit solved the problem. The Raw Nikon NEF files transfer very quickly to the iPhoto app in the iPad. Resolution is very good and much easier to see if your shots are in focus vs. the smaller screen on the camera. I was able to transfer several hundred to the iPad. It takes about a second per photo to transfer. The interface is very similar to how iPhoto works on a Mac. If you are simply attempting to preview on the iPad after a photo shoot and then delete the photos from the iPad so that they can be transferred to a computer later from your card, this works extremely well. The only downside is if you have several hundred to delete, you have to select them individually and then press delete. This only took a couple of minutes as I couldn't find a select all. Otherwise, I highly recommend this.

    This thing works only with "designed for iPad" things.

    You will not get any problems with any usb-device positioned as an iThing-accessory. But get ready for troubles if you prefer your own usb-keyboard, external HDD, pen-drive or smth similar. Sometime non-ithing-accessories work with iPad, but absolutely no guarantee.
    High-powered usb-devices like ext-HDD may start work if an exernally powered usb-hub is used between iPad and HDD, because iPad has a very power-limited usb-port.

    *Sorry for rude English.

    It's not working!!!!

    When I select, say 20 pics, it can only import 7 and it will jump out to the main screen. I then try to import the rest of 13, it imported another 5 and then jump out again! The thing that drives me crazy is that it then open up 2 separate folder with the date!

    The USB connector is useless!!!
    I plugged in my Logitech USB Speakrs, iPad said it uses too much power.
    I plugged in my USB Hard drive, iPad said it uses too much power.
    I plugged in two USB sticks, iPad said it didn't support it.
    I plugged in Tascam portable audio recorder, it didn't work.
    I plugged in my USB Card reader (for CF), it didn't work.
    I plugged in my Canon 7D, it didn't work!!!!

    Only thing that worked was my Gf's Sony camera and my iPhone. This thing is useless!!!! I had great hopes in using my iPad as a backup media for everything I shoot with my 7D...nop...garbage!!

    This is going back....

    Apple, why can't you make something that works? iPad is already very limited. By adding a *FUNCTIONAL* USB port it could greatly improve it!!!!!!

    Ipad connected to Nikon S8000

    after paying $29 for the camera connection kit I found out that the IPAD rejects my Nikon S8000 camera due excessive power. buying the connector kit was a total waste.

    It is very useful but can't use with Sigma Camera

    It is very useful for ipad I guess it is essential to buy if you have ipad,
    but the thing is I cannot load raw images from my Sigma DP2 camera.

    I guess Apple doesn't support to Sigma.
    I am just expecting iOS 4.1 that can load sigma raw files, but I dont think it will be.

    It dose not work

    Maybe I am a complete idiot but I expect a plug and play device to do just that, well it did not. There are very few instructions, which I followed, but when I put the card in the device and plug it in nothing happened and I have no idea where to turn.

    Works flawlessly

    Bought the connector while on vacation in Chicago, Apple Store has them in stock. Worked perfectly to import from 2GB high-speed cards. Have imported well over 1000 pics now, all nicely organized by date. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended time-saving device

    Waster Opportunity

    First off these do exactly what they say it will and a "little" more so I'm not going to say exactly what every other review has said. I'll say what the others aren't saying and see if it gets through the screener's:

    This is another example of a capable piece of hardware unnecessarily limited by software. There is allot of opportunity for this add-on device that SHOULD give the missing capabilities that were not natively built into the iPad. Unfortunately it only does about 1/2 of what's needed..

    I use my iPad mostly for work (and games). The only thing stopping me from switching ALL of my work email, correspondence, etc over to this is its inability to attach a file not created or downloaded from within the iPad. I'm not going to watch movies, listen to music or read books on it. Because of its awesome, simple, portable nature I AM going to use it for all the apps, web surfing, emailing, scheduling, flight planning, mapping, etc.... that it is SO good at! My biggest limitation is the inability to "easily" transfer files from my big 3D desktop workstation to this to email. If I currently need to send a file I have to bring up a clunky web browser based mail client and go that route. It's a pain. I so wanted to be able to copy a ZIP file to a flash drive, plug it in to this USB adapter, copy it to the iPad and attach it to an email to send. Doesn't work. Why? I have no idea. I don't see how adding this simple software feature would hinder itunes sales? It doesn't seem any different than adding a feature just like the current "Photos" or "Videos" accept it would say "Files".

    OK, enough ranting. I hope in the near future they add this simple and much needed feature. I'm not holding my breath but I also never thought I would be carrying around 2 Apple mobile devices everywhere I go... and I do.

    Great user interface but doesn't support all

    The user interface is great. But it said that the USB is not supported when I insert a SD card with photos not directly taken with camera but copied from my pc. And when I copied back a picture from my iPad in both JPEG and RAW format to my pc, both files are in RAW format. I need to test exactly how it works before bring this with my trip.

    Great Product

    This a great product and a must-have for iPad users. It doesn't just import photos, it also works as a USB port and a SD slot! I use it all the time and connect it to a USB hub with a power adapter to also use flash drives, non-self powered hard drives and the Apple keyboard with the number keys and the USB ports. But it only works when I plug it to a USB hub with a power adapter. I also use it to import videos from my 5G iPod nano.
    Overall, it is a great product which creates USB and SD slots.

    Great with cameras, so so with SD cards

    Works fine when connecting to a camera. I use it fine with my Nikon D70 and Olympus Stylus Tough 6000. Also works fine with my Sandisk 2GB SD card. However, when I tried it with the higher capacity Sandisk 4GB SDHC card, which is what most cameras use today, it says that it is not a supported USB device. So, if you plan on using it with any type of High Capacity SDHC card, think twice or get confirmation that it is compatible with your specific card first.

    One other note is that when the 4GB SDHC card is in the camera and tethered using the USB adapter instead of the SD reader, it reads the card fine. It just takes away the convenience of being able to download your files without having to be tethered to a camera.

    SD connection does not work and Apple fails to help

    The SD connection device is not recognized by three macbooks and even after changing the device the new device did not work on any of the three. Genius and on line chat assistance all failed in fixing the problem. USB device has limited capability. Apple blew it on this one.

    This is great

    A nice little tool that does everything it is advertised to do, plus more. I took pictures at a wedding, loaded them into The Pad and showed them at reception -- priceless. Also allows usb keyboard to be plugged in. Hope soon will allow use of flash drives, and other attachments.

    MS PRO

    Just purchased camera kit today, works like a dream with MS PRO via USB adaptor. It does come up with a warning that it isn't recognised but hit ignore and works fine. Takes a minute or two to load but I use both raw and jpeg files. Although I say takes time to load i had over 200 photos. Great tool to see photos at a decent size within a short time after taking your photos.

    Almost perfect...but

    Works pretty much as advertised. Will import pictures directly off of my Sony CyberShot camera with the USB connector, but will not import the camera's videos: as videos are not stored in the DCIM folder. Even after using my computer to transfer the video to the DCIM folder, and using the CARD connector, it looks like the video has transferred, but it will not play. It just leaves an 'MP4' icon on the screen that does not function.

    It will however transfer both pictures AND videos perfectly directly from my Cannon PowerShot S3...go figure.

    Videos taken with the iPod Nano transfer and play perfectly. I just hope it works with videos taken from the new iPod about to come out.

    I have not had any problems transferring pictures from any USB device as of yet: as long as the pictures are in a DCIM folder.

    Good but lacking a huge feature

    When plugged into the iPad you can only browse little thumbnails. I often take 4 or 5 pictures to get the right angle. It would be nice to be able to see large versions of the pictures or to be able to quickly show picturess that are on the sd card with out having to import them all.
