USB works, SD-Card don't work wis IOS 4.2 – USB Camera Connector + SD Card Reader Kit for iPad Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The Adapter is eary to use. With os4.2 on the ipad the usb Port works without any Problem connecting a Nikon D200 and a lumix TZ2. Copy the photos to the Ipad is very easy. I tested an external multi Card-reader and it works with CF-Card and SD-card (see cons)
Cons:
The SD reader doesn't work with 4.2. The Ipad say it needs to much current. That is surprising, becaus an extenal Card reader works on the USB port. I think teh internal electonic for SD is bad buld.
Other:
If you want to read CF cads you can use this, but for SDHC with IOS4.2 you als have to use an external reader. I hope Apple will give the USB Port with the next OS al little more current back. There are also problems with the original camera commection kit on 4.2
Bottomline:
Buy it f you have no problems using a carc reader with the camera connector.
