iPad Supported Cameras-Copying Camera photos and recordings to iPad


With the iPad Camera Connection Kit, it’s easy to download photos and videos from your digital camera to iPad so as to view them on the iPad display and make them into slideshows and films for sharing on YouTube and with friends.

Guide: How to upload camera shootings and photos to iPad with CCK

But there’s not a thing that is perfect. Before you buy an iPad Camera Connection Kit, you’d better make sure it works with your camera. I can’t list all of iPad supported Cameras in this post (there’re too many cameras on the market), but here’re some useful tips for you to judge if your camera is compatible with the iPad device and its accessory CCK (camera connection kit).

From its product page you learn that the iPad Camera Connection Kit gives you two ways to import photos and videos from a digital camera: using your camera’s USB cable or directly from an SD card. Both way supports standard photo formats, including JPEG and RAW, along with SD and HD video formats, including H.264 and MPEG-4. This gives you a general idea but not in details.

1. Majority cameras take photo in JPEG and RAW format (e.g. ciff with Canon EOS), both are supported by iPad and CCK.

2. Compact Cameras shooting videos in .avi or .mp4 format are supported by iPad and the CCK. These include the Sony Cyber-shot Digital camera line, Panasonic Lumix lines, and lots of other cameras (e.g. Flip). If you’re not sure if it’s a supported device, check the manual of the Camera – if it shoots in Motion-JPEG (i.e. M-JPEG) mode, then the footage can be imported to iPad naturally.

3. DSLR cameras shooting in .mov format are mostly supported. These include Canon EOS line, Nikon DLSRs and some others. Cameras may shoot video in different frame rate (23.976fps/29.987fps/59.94fps/60fps), but the iPad can’t play videos that are at above 30fps. For instance, Canon EOS 5D Mark III can shoot in both 640×480 30fps and 1280×720 60fps, and the latter is not supported thus can’t be imported.

4. AVCHD footage in .mts or .m2ts are not supported. This covers over-majority of the camcorders on market. Your photos on AVCHD camcorder can be uploaded all right. But the videos will not appear in available source area.

5. For some cameras/camcorders, videos shoot in SD mode (mostly .avi or .mp4) work with iPad while HD footage are not supported.
