I have the $30 CCK, iPhone 4S and iPad 1 and 2, and I regularly use the CCK to transfer photos from iPhone to iPad. This is how it works:
-- I plug in the CCK to iPhone and iPad, and it automatically displays all photos from my iPhone on my iPad screen as thumbnails.
-- On iPad, it auto-prompts me to import all or some of those images. I can choose by tapping on individual photos, or import all.
-- If I choose to import all, it auto-prompts and lets me know if some of those images are already on my iPad, and asks whether I still want to import them all (creating duplicates on iPad).
-- After I'm done importing, it auto-prompts and asks whether I want to keep or delete the photo(s) from my iPhone.
-- All my newly imported photos automatically appear on iPad in the Last Import album, from which I can add it to other albums on iPad.
I've had the CCK for more than two years and have used it consistently without problem. I originally started using it to transfer photos from my iPhone 4 to iPad 1. I later added a touch 4, iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, and they all work the same with the CCK.
It works great, and I prefer it over cloud synching photos, because I can easily look through all the thumbnails and choose only individual photos to synch.
The only hiccup now is that I have thousands of photos on my iPhone 4S, so it takes maybe a minute for all the thumbnails to pop up on my iPad screens, so I can begin choosing what I want to import.
