    Hi TP - that looks like an interesting device! Already looking at some comments on Amazon and other places - do I need one? Probably not but I'm a gadget guy so may consider a purchase - thanks for the link and description! Dave :)

    I only know about it because I also like my gadgets, so I keep an eye on the cooler toys like this. The only reason I don't have it is because I can't come up with a practical use (for myself) that justifies the cost.

    OT: There is supposed to be a new version of the Parrot AR.Drone at CES, with an HD camera. I want this soooo bad my bank account site refuses to open when I'm reading articles about this totally cool but use limited toy. :D

    The camera adapter allows you to read the memory card in the camera, what would prevent you from loading files on to the camera card?

    The fact that the iPad wouldn't be able to read and download the files. The camera connection kit is only intended for transferring photos from your camera to the iPad.
    BTW, this thread is a year old and it's highly unlikely that the OP will see your post, since he only posted once.

    It only reads photos and videos in the exact format a modern digital camera uses. It won't even read image files if they do not have the right folder and file naming conventions.

    The CCK works fine for photos. But somehow the videos cannot be read on my iPad2, even though they look fine on the Mac.

    Videos need to be in the same folder and file names as created directly on the camera. You cannot use it to transfer your own videos to the iPad. For that, use the wired connection.
