The kit has a SD and USB connector which talks with the iPad through the female Apple connector you use for synchronizing or connecting to your computer.The kit gives you an easier way to upload images, video and PDF documents.Â It also gives you an easier way to connect your iPhone or other digital camera or video recorder to your iPad.Â Hell, you could almost toss out the PC…oh way, you’ve still got to sync and update. The USB port could also be used to connect your keyboard to the iPad for typing emails, etc.Â Sure you all love the keypad on the iPad, but it’s still not as easy to use as a traditional keyboard.

- If the user gets the iPad message “Not Charging” you must take this literally.Â This means the use of the iPad will equal the draw of power and only when it goes to sleep will it recharge…so it’s like a break even.
The iPad camera connection kit comes with a male adapter card to connect either USB or SD cards.Â Given the slim dimensions of the iPad we can understand the lack of design integration for USB, but SD or even microSD, now that makes sense.Â Our only conclusion is a lack of real-estate on the PCBA used to make the iPad. Interesting side note:Â Apple has the exclusive patent on the 30 pin female connector it uses and plans to NEVER license it out.Â I know the USB kit has a male connector, it just reminded me of reading that info a couple weeks back.
