iPAD : Camera Connection Kit uses

Posted on July 25, 2010

The camera connection kit ( US $29 ) includes two connectors – a USB option and an SD card option. Plugging in the connector does nothing at first but as soon as you put in a USB cable (with the other end attached to your camera) or an SD card, then the Photos app is automatically loaded and gives you the option to transfer your images to the iPad. The number of images you have to transfer will govern the duration of the transfer, but in general the whole process takes seconds rather than minutes.

Images of course can be selected individually so you don’t have to import everything at once and when you sync the iPad to your PC or Mac, the photos on your iPad are added to your computer’s photo library automatically. It is really easy.

The iPad and the Camera Connection Kit support standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW.

In this video I demonstrate what happens when you try connecting an apple USB Keyboard using the USB Adapter from the Camera Connection Kit.

In this video I show you what you’ll need to do to prepare a USB Flash Drive to work with your iPad.

In this video I use a powered USB Hub (Griffin Simplifi Dock) to re-test equipment connected to the iPad via the USB adapter from the Camera Connection Kit.
