I ordered one on the 18th, just checked my order status and it shows it will ship Aug.2 for receipt on Aug. 5. :(

If I find one at a store before then I will cancel this order.

Wish you could just buy the USB adapter. I have no use for the SD reader, and even if I did I could plug a USB one in.

Ordered mine on May 23. Shipped on June 14. Arrived on June 18.

One thing I didn't notice in the specs - it doesn't work with iPhone 3G.

Or, said in a bit different way...

It works like a charm with my 5 year old USB card reader with an adaptor for a 5 year old Sony Memory stick, but not my 2 year old iPhone 3G.

Grrrrrrrrrr

There's an App called Photo Transfer that will allow you to move pics wirelessly from iPhone to iPad or computer, and vice versa. Works like a charm with my original iPhone, although reviews yesterday indicated that it's not yet iOS4 compatible. I think it's around $2.99.

Thanks for that. I'll probably end up grabbing one of those pic swapping apps.

Just seems to me that the 3G should work with an Apple built adaptor. Someone made a conscious decision to make it not work. That's the part that makes me growl...

I've heard rumors that the unobtanium operation on Pandora has run into some resistance from some indiginous peoples... Na'vi or something? :D

It really is getting ridiculous... how hard is it to build these things?! :confused:

I think Apple didn't WANT the device to work like it is working, and secretly did a recall of every single one it had shipped to vendors but had not sold and is 1 by 1 modifying the devices to not work as it did originally.

In the mean time, they have stopped production of all new devices until they can figure out a new design.

This is some demand: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Camera-kit-SD-card-reader-connector-IPAD-apple-/320543441038?cmd=ViewItem&pt=UK_Computing_Apple_Mac_Accessories&hash=item4aa1e0c08e

Is ANYBODY willing to pay that much?

Interestingly, there is a guy with one with an SD only adapter for open bidding. Actually, I just found some more at only $55. I am thinking about pulling the trigger. $20 to have it now...vs months from now. Sheesh!!!

Well, I just bought one ebay...I figure I can sell the SD card adapter while they are still so back ordered and come out not too bad.

..and they're using underpants gnomes to do it.

Except that some revolutionary element within Apple has been railing against the evil empire and secretly shipping out "original" versions as they manufacture them to the original specifications in an underground manufacturing facility outside the reach of the Apple Stormtroopers.

Translation without the fiction: Apple shipped my camera kit to me last week and it works exactly as the ones available on release day before the overwhelming demand that far exceeded Apple's expectations caused them to receive more orders than they're manufacturing facilities could keep up with.

But the question is...when did YOU order yours?

You all are going to LOVE the Camera Connection Kit!!!

I must say that the CCK is awesome. My mother-in-law sent my kids customer Birthday cards and asked that I take pictures and send them to her.

Since I recently got a P&S with an SD card, I was able to take the pics, transfer them to the iPad and e-mail them to her in under 5 minutes. I loved it and she was so surprised since it would take MUCH longer when I used my DSLR, which consisted me booting up my laptop, opening Lightroom, transferring the pics, exporting to JPG, and them e-mailing them.

Love it for those quick moments where post editing is not a major concern.

Now if video transfers and YouTube uploads could be done as easily.

Mine arrived a few minutes ago, a couple of days early according to Apple/FedEx's shipping estimate.

I've got an upcoming trip to Australia where I'm ONLY taking my DSLRs and two iPads. I haven't placed an order for a CCK because I thought I could snag one at my local Apple store... but now, a month in it looks like it might not work out (doh!).

I've seen some CCK's for around $60 at various vendors on the net. Does anyone know if any of these are reputable? $60 is nothing compared to the total trip cost... as long as it is a genuine part and works properly.

Has anyone ordered from somewhere other than Apple and had it work out?

Thanks!

Ordered mine yesterday from the UK Apple store. Estimated delivery August 12th...Which is the day I fly out to America and the exact reason I want the camera connection kit. It's like it's taunting me.

Similar situation for me. I have a trip to Norway coming up and can't wait for the CCK to ship from Apple. I ordered one yesterday for $55 from a well rated eBay seller and he shipped it the same day. The Apple order that I just canceled came to about $40 with fast shipping. An extra $15 to be sure I get it in time for my trip is well worth it.

Who was your seller? Mine is arriving the day I leave on holidays also, and I would prefer to play with it for a while before I leave to make sure it works with my camera/card :(

My seller was lxue143. Here's a link to his listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110547585063. He bumped his price up a small amount after my purchase.
