3-in-1 Camera Connection Kit for the iPad

When Apple designed the iPad, they opted for simplicity and omitted things like a USB port or memory card slots. This made it more tedious for photographers to transfer a large number of photographs onto their iPads, since the Camera Connection Kit needed for USB and SD Card support comes in two separate dongles. Luckily, there’s a made-in-China knockoff that can ease a little of the pain — the 3-in-1 iPad Camera Connection Kit combines the two dongles into one nicely designed apparatus. Available in both black and white, it comes with a USB port, a SD Card slot, and a Micro SD Card slot. Pick one up over at the M.I.C Gadget store for $29.90.

    Does it work with iPhone and iPod?

    Here’s a tip: that USB connection can be used to plug a keyboard into your iPad. Not all keyboards work, but any simple one that is not “high powered” will work. That means pretty much all basic cheapo keyboards. (I tested it with the official Apple USB dongle and it does work.)

    Very cool solution but why was it made by Chinese? Why did’t Kodak or Nikon,etc make this in USA?

    But when will someone make a CF-card reader for the iPad? I’m waiting, but not holding my breath!
