iPad Camera Connection Kit

I went to the Apple Store with Daniel M. Clark so that we could pick up iPad Camera Connection Kits (Aff Link). They are only $29.00 and come with an iPad to SD card connectors and also an iPad to USB connector.

I immediately returned to the Blogger Lounge and created a video. I was able to connect my SD card and also my Flip video camera. I tried to record a video and upload it from my Flip, KODAK PlaySport, and also my Canon SD800is. Photos came back from the Canon quickly, video also worked great from it. However importing video from the Flip showed nothing on the iPad. The KODAK PlaySport video did not show up either.

The limitations I am already seeing from this is that the photos load fine and that is what I figure the product is for so that is good however if you import video you don’t get it on the video side, it appears in the photo area. Not good. Also I have not found any way to upload the videos that I imported. Not thrilled with that.

I took a photo with my Canon imported it to the iPad with the iPad camera connector kit (Aff Link) and added it to this post. It appears on the bottom of the post. I would like to have much more control over everything in this endeavor. Not thrilled. Must find ways to make this work as I would like it to work.

      Kumagcow – Yeah it didn’t work right at all. I would have thought that since the flip is native MP4 it would have worked and I would have thought that the KODAK PlaySport being .MOV would have worked too. Sadly no.

    I am so glad I read this. Just recently I went to buy this, sadly the Apple person had no clue what I was talking about and shooed me out of the store because they were busy (that’s a whole new blog post lol) But I needed it so I could dump my pictures and videos at BlogHer. That didn’t happen but I am sad that the Flip or the Kodak don’t work as those are the two video cameras I have. Disappointed in that!! Thanks for the heads up and please do keep us posted if you find something that works!

      You can dump your photos and only some videos work but again they end up in the photos gallery so if you just want to look at them then it is golden however if you want to do more you are out of luck. I am thinking that I would like to tether my iPad to my Camera so that when I take a Shot I can automatically see the photo on the 10″ screen as opposed to the 2.5 incher.

  4. […] little whirlwind where I ran up to the Apple store with Daniel M. Clark. We went and bought some iPad Camera Connector Kits. I am not quite that impressed with the tool but it was a mere $30. I am going to look into being […]

    Where can I buy that kind of camera connection kit?

      Hi Naomi,

      Thanks for the question. I just added the link to buy the camera connector kit at Amazon.com. Thanks for reminding me that I should have done that.
