    Excellent Product.....Apple’s IOS not so much

    So this device works exactly as intended and can turn any Apple device with a lightening port into an SD Card viewer. The problem however is that Apple’s IOS does not allow you to view full images on the SD Card without first saving the images to your device. In other words, you can only see small thumbnail images of photos or videos on your SD Card until you choose to save the files to your photo album. Apple should really fix it to where you can view the full image and select to save it before importing the photo. For someone like me who uses my iPhone to view my game camera pictures while out in the woods, a tiny thumbnail image will not tell me anything about the files captured on my game cameras. I literally have to import all and then manually delete the files once I am able to view the full image.

    Typical Apple overpriced accessory I’ve been looking at this accessory for quite some time I just didn’t know if I really needed it while after I bought a drone I decided it was time. And I’m a lil upset I didn’t get it sooner it allows you to upload the videos or pictures of the specific memory card to your IOS device as simple as a few seconds it makes looking at the footage taken or pictures taken and editing them off your IOS device easy and simple with mobile PH LR and other tools now your able to edit on the spot and upload right away. Makes it easier then pulling out the MacBook Pro and having to do it that way also has it is the MacBook Pro don’t have a card reader anymore either so this makes it even simpler to to get it into the Apple ecosystem. My only other gripe is now I’ll have to buy the USB c version thanks Apple sometimes I wish Apple would not try to be so innovative and make s*** simple like adding memory cards to iPhones already what are in 2007 still.

    Instant editing and sharing solution!

    This little adapter saved me a lot of $$$!!! simply pull the SD card out of the camera. place in the adapter, and plug the adapter in the phone. my phone pulled up the photos within a few seconds. select and copy the photos you want and import. the only slow part is if you have iCloud photos turned on it can take a bit for the photos to transfer up to the cloud. if you have that off, its quick. I used a few in phone apps and boom! fully edited photos from my Nikon Full Frame camera straight to the phone, and then post to wherever i want. Totally perfect for my needs right now. Didn't have to buy a new computer to get heavy into cost. But if your going to be doing professional work, get a good editing machine. this adapter is great for quick sharing. No problems with full file size transfers in Jpeg and RAW 14bit.

    I normally use the WiFi in my Canon 70D to transfer photos to my iPhone. But since I had switched over to my old T3i, I figured I’d buy this to make my life a little easier. And oh man, I’m so happy I did! Since I use Lightroom on my iPhone as well, this little slice of pie transfers photos in RAW to the app on my phone, which in turn maintains the size and quality of my photos. Now I don’t have to go through my computer when I want to post clear photos without IG or FB diminishing the quality further. So if you’re on the wall about this, jump right on over and think no more! You will not regret it!

    There's not much I can say about the lightning SD card reader; it works. It doesn't take much time to copy 24MP RAW photos off of an SDXC card I have onto my iPad Pro so I can quickly edit them. It took only a couple of minutes to copy over 300 photos onto the iPad, the speed was actually a bit faster than my Mac Mini using its built-in SDXC card reader. Videos are quickly copied over too. I do wish that you could actually copy movies and other content over (you technically can copy movies over, they'll just be in your photos labeled as "home videos") but this is a nice accessory for people who want to edit their photos right on their iPads without having to lug around a notebook or go back to a desktop. Imported RAW (and JPEG) photos work with Photoshop Express, Photoshop Fix, Lightroom, and Photoshop Mix without issues.

    THE Game-Changer (IOS 9.2 Update Needed)

    Amazing. Today, this Lightning SD card reader became a game-changer where I work. Having an iPhone 6S Plus, I had just downloaded the IOS 9.2 update, necessary for the iPhone to recognize JPEGs on an SD card. Yesterday was my first day with the card reader, and it was odd that I had taken a few images with my Canon 5D Mark iv. After capturing a few images, I pulled the SD card out, plugged it into the reader, then plugged the reader into the Lightning port of the iPhone. A white screen popped up, revealing thumbnails of all the images I had taken. "WOW." From that point on, any time I had a decent image to send, I would swap SD cards between my camera and the iPhone, store the selects onto the phone, use the "Photos" app to prep the image

    I use this card reader to download pictures & HD videos from my game cameras to my iPhone or iPad. It has worked flawlessly on my first trip out. With over 600 20-second video clips downloaded, it has worked very well. The only issue I have had is not related to the card reader. Since my cellular signal isn’t strong where I am hunting, I can only see the videos as still shots, until my phone stumbles onto an LTE cellular covered area. Then it rapidly finishes downloading the videos to the cloud, and I can view every video perfectly. I think my phone stops downloading analog, so it wouldn’t use up too much of data plan. I’m not very sure about that.

    Who Needs Wi-Fi?!

    This little lightning to SD Camera Reader is the best gadget ever! With it, you can easily plug it into an IPad, IPod or IPhone, load your camera's SD card into the other end, download your photos and send them to your friends via email, Facebook, Twitter and a host of other media--Voila, just like that--no wi-fi needed! I've had one of these gems ever since my first generation IPad and then updated with a new lightning cable version when the IPad Air and Minis came on the scene. Have also given several for gifts already and bought two more recently to give as gifts as well. The only downfall is that this little device is limited to use only with Apple products. Highly recommended!
