      It's hard to believe all of the new ways that have arisen to spend money on things I've lived without for all these years since I bought my iPad2. Before the iPad I was happy to spend my money on things like food and clothing and maybe an infrequent visit to a movie theater. Now, I am unable to do most of those things since my funds go to the purchase of apps and iPad accessories. It's a sad state of affairs, but I do get to play with the thing and attach gizmos that make it do stuff that it didn't do before the gizmos got attached. Which all brings me to the camera connection kit by Apple. Before I purchased the camera connection kit I had to download my photos to my computer through another Apple product, iPhoto, and then put whatever photos I had downloaded that I wanted to see on my iPad into a folder in iPhoto and then sync it with my iPad. Whew! What a time waster huh? Now its a direct download from the camera or SD card into the iPad. I don't know how I ever lived without the thing (but this is what I also said about Angry Birds and Super Sudoku). So, all in all, I'm happy with the purchase, it works the way its supposed to work, and I will only have to miss a couple of meals this week or perhaps postpone the purchase of that extra pair of socks I was considering for the winter to pay for it.

      Used to connect camera (Canon 7D) to iPad so that I can store my images on the road. I do not use SD cards so the reader is useless to me. Other reviews say the SD card reader doesn't work. I can't confirm or deny their reports. Too bad it doesn't come with a CF card reader.

            The camera connection kit makes adding my photos so much easier. Add them to my iPad and the automatically update on my iMac with photo stream. Makes adding photos while out on location easy to do!

                        I bought this connection kit to use to transfer photos from my camera to my ipad when on vacation. I used the SD adapter and plugged it into the ipad and installed the SD card and imported the pictures immediately. It works great. I have no complaints regarding this product. The price from B&H Photo was great also.

                          Amateur photographer looking for a quicker way to download photos taken on my DLSR. Using Ipad 2nd generation. I received the product several days ahead of schedule - 5 stars for that. Product was cheaper than other online retailers - 5 stars for that.Product contains two adapters, both of which plug directly into the charging port on the bottom of the ipad. The first adapter allows for a memory card - type 'SD' to be inserted. I have not used this as of yet. The second adapter allows you to connect directly to your camera via usb. Again, the end of the cable that connects to the adapter piece is USB. I have used this several times and have had no hiccups to report. Download speeds are pretty fast, even when downloading movies. I also like the feature that allows you to pick the photos you wish to download, prior to deleting all photos from your camera (or keeping them should you so choose). I would assume you can do the same via the SD card adapter. I plan on taking this to our upcoming beach trip where I will download pics on a daily basis and play them back via ipad to appletv on the big screen. 5 stars for the fact that this product worked exactly as the description states. I love the plug and play ability here, no downloading of additional software necessary to start transferring pics.

                            This is one of the simplest and yet most useful accessories for "field" use. Take your pix, plug your SD card into the connector, select photos to transfer, review them on the iPad. So easy. Have some fun and tweak them using SnapSeed app. Send them on.

                              I use this to view my photos quickly on big iPad screen. It's convenient and easy.

                                I ordered two sets of these adapters. They are great to review your shots in remote locations where you do not have a power source for a laptop.

                                    The Apple CCK is what it is advertised to be: an inexpensive way to add versatility to the already versatile iPad. Who doesn't want that?

                                        Got this to view images from my D600 in the field using an iPad. I was unsure if the iPad would display D600 RAW files, but it does. Only negative is the transfer speed is slow (7 sec/image), but the thumbnails appear quickly. So you need to select carefully from the thumbnails which ones are worth a closer look.

                                          The SD card adaptor works great for downloading images from a camera (even supports RAW) but it does not allow you to transfer other kinds of files to or from an SD card.The USB adaptor works fine with a camera, too - but it does allow you to do a few neat things not advertised, such as connect a USB microphone to bypass the built-in mic and 3.5mm jack. USB devices that need more than minimal current to work will not function, however. Flash drive, mouse, etc do not seem to function, then again Apple does not claim that they will...
