    I'm trying to use an apple ipod USB camera connector kit and I get a message telling me that the accessory is not supported on the iPad - is there a way to trick the iPad or do I have to spend more money? Any help appreciated...

    Have you tried using it anyway after clicking on the message to make it go away? If it still doesn't work, then it doesn't work; but if it does, then all you need to do is ignore the message.

    The reason being, I use the iPad CCK to plug a USB keyboard into my device. The warning message pops up, but after I click it away, I find that I can use the keyboard perfectly fine, including function and arrow keys. It doesn't work for every keyboard I have, but as long as it works for at least one that's good enough for me.

    I was wondering if anyone has a Canon DSLR and has tried using this? I have a Canon 40D and shoot in RAW. I was wondering if I use the USB connection if I could see my pictures on my iPad? Would help for looking over my pictures before I get home and work on them on my Macbook Pro

    I think what the OP is trying to do is use a web camera on an iPad. I don't think people have had any luck with this. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I use a Nikon D90 and my photos shot in raw do show up on the iPad. Not sure about your Canon camera though.

    I use a Cannon XSi, shoot in RAW and import with the iPad camera connection kit and it works quite well.

    If I was knitpicking (SP?), I would say the only downsides are you can only see thumbnails of pictures you want to import from the camera or the SD card, so if you take more than one of the same photo and would like to choose, or see details of a photo before importing it isn't possible. Tought to see detail in a one inch by one inch thumbnail!

    Only other thing is that I don't know of a way to create folders/organize.

    Pictures only import into two folders - "Last Import" and "All Imported".

    But overall it works great.

    That is good to know. My girlfriend has a point and shoot+a flip video camera so I'll probably end up buying the kit anyways. Finally got my iPad 2 yesterday and love it!! so using my camera with it would be awesome! Maybe someone will come out with an app that will be more tuned with DSLRSs

    FYI I tried to get sneaky and plug in my flip video, and it didn't work, however there is a Flipshare app, and it's easy enough to set up a password protected Flip channel.
