Unfortunately, the iPhone doesn't support importing like the iPad.

What happens when you plug the iPhone into it via USB?

You can actually see that in my video below. Essentially, the album app automatically launches and allows you to select import photos and videos.

Interesting that the Flip doesn't work (at least playback wise). I bet if you used a camera that supported Motion JPEG video instead of MP4 that it would work though. At least according to early reports about the iPad from people poking around the SDK.

If someone could test out Motion JPEG that would be awesome.

It says, "This accessory is not supported by iPhone" when you try to plug either in.

I could try capturing Motion JPEG from my Nikon D5000 and see if that will playback. I'll work on it tomorrow.

Okay, I couldn't wait and tested this. Yes, indeed Motion JPEG recorded on my Nikon D5000 does import and playback on the iPad.

It's safe to assume there is no driver software to support any sort of network adapter through the dock.

Awesome! Definitely gonna buy the kit, even though I mostly work with AVC, I think I will primarily use it to preview test shots and stuff. Thanks!

Can you transfer other files using an SD card?

I sure would love it if Canon would do a camera control app for the iPad like they have for my MBP.

No, it only recognizes video and photo files, and it only launches the Photo album app.

Maby there will be an app for such things as ethernet and file transfer once it is jailbroken to public...

Great job BORG, and thanks for sharing! Have you considered a second career as a surgeon or Apple Demonstrator guy? :)

I'd like to see what the jailbreak community can do with this adaptor. This may turn the iPad from a media consumption device to a useful "computer".

Good point. I did not jailbreak my iPhone 3G until recently. My 1st gen was jailbroken within a few months of purchase but it was buggy and annoying most of the time. Now that I'm back in it with my 3G I can't wait to see what happens with the iPad.

Tomorrow I will be doing a video on connecting iPods (Hint Hint: Only one works)

For those that don't want to watch, it's the 5th generation ipod nano because it has a camera built in.

And my mistake, the iPod Touch will also import photos. :o

This Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVdH6kj5fWU) clarifies the issue with importing photos from the iPhone and iPod Touch (essentially only photos generated by the phone or ipod touch can be imported to the iPad).

Is the motion jpeg container .avi on your camera? If so does the camera kit recognize it? My casio does mjpeg video in .avi. My camera kit has been shipped. I'm hoping it will import my videos. iTunes won't.

The answer is yes. Motion JPEG is commonly found in .AVI containers, so it would work fine.

iTunes won't read that kind of file, but actually iPhoto will read it just fine, which if you configure the settings right in iTunes, it will sync back to your iPad.

Thanks. I'd love to try iPhoto but I'm a pc.:D
