With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it’s incredibly easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to your iPad so you can view them on the gorgeous iPad display and share them with family and friends. The kit includes two connectors, each with a different interface. The Camera Connector features a USB interface. Just plug it into the dock connector port on your iPad, then attach your digital camera or iPhone using a USB cable (iPhone 3G is not supported). Or you can use the SD Card Reader to import photos and videos directly from your camera’s SD card. After you make the connection, your iPad automatically opens the Photos app, which lets you choose which photos and videos to import, then organizes them into albums. When you sync iPad of course everything will be brought into your photo library.
As an alternative use you can even use the USB adapter to connect USB headphones, keyboards, headsets and almost anything else that is USB driven. Photographers will be happy knowing that the EXIF information stays intact when you important the images back onto a computer.
