    Works amazing! I got my new camera today, shot some quick pictures for a review about an iPad stand...popped out the SDHC card, popped it into the camera connection kit, plugged it in, started up the photos app and it asked if I wanted to import them.

    Very easy to use, very nice, very compact, glad I spent the extra money to buy it from eBay so I have it in time for my trip to Germany.

    I then opened up Flickrstacker and uploaded them directly to my Flickr account.

    The whole process took maybe 1 minute.

    I got my kit in the mail today after a month on order....I agree with you! It works great! I have to try the flickr account though...I just put right into my album. The wait seems to be worth it...easier to use than the video connection kit.

    I was one of the lucky ones who ordered the kit the first day it was available to order, so I got it weeks before I got my iPad. And now, I spend so much time doing other things on the iPad, that I haven't even taken it out of the box yet! Glad to know it works well and is there waiting when I need it.

    I wanted to try it just to see and make sure everything would work ok when it came time to need it. Also by trying the SDHD one, I know it works and don't need to take my USB one with me to Germany.

    Alright, now this is getting weird, first the car, now this. I have the exact same camera, it came in different colors if I remember right, let me guess yours is red? Anyhow, nice little camera. And thanks for the review on the connection kit, I was on the fence, now going to order it up.

    Ah, if only hotels could sell leftover chargers on ebay and feed the hungry, I know I've left my fair share.

    Thanks for the review Matt, I really haven't heard a lot of info on them and now Im in more of a hurry to order one. I purchased a DSLR and I think it's going to pair up nicely for viewing photos out in the field and being able to view them instantly will really help the learning process of digital photography.

    Very highly doubt it...depends on what format your camera saves in I guess. If it saves in avi or some other iPad unsupported format that obviously not.

    Me too, but the next time you are at a hotel and forgot your cable just ask at the front desk. They will probably be happy to give you that someone else left behind. Might save you a few bucks.

    I read on another thread that someone was able to get video working, I don't remember the details and can't find the thread now.

    It sucks that the Canon SD780 doesn't charge with the sync cable. I'm stuck with iPhone pictures until the new charger shows up...

    I have successfully used the camera connection kit (mainly the SD Card Reader) to transfer Photos and videos from my Pentax W60 Camera. Videos (1280x720, 15fps) play perfectly on the iPad. Photos & Videos synch easily with my iMac when synching iPad.

    Also transferred videos from a Contour HD Bullet Camera. All transfer but only certain settings playback.
