    Hi,

    I've got a Canon EOS 10D which I want to connect to my iPad via the Camera Connection Kit, but the iPad doesn't recognize the camera.

    Then, I tried my other Canon EOS 40D which works very well with the Camera Connection Kit.

    On my PC, the EOS 10D is also able to communicate with the computer.

    Does anyone has an idea, why the Canon EOS 10D doesn't work with my iPad?

    Thanks a lot!

    My guess is 10D is too old piece of a technology. Considering it's been more than 7 years since it was released. iPad probably comes with very limited to recent years camera support. Just my 2 cents.

    If your camera does not store photos or video in a folder named DCIM, the iPad will not recognize it.

    Hi,

    thanks for your reply, but when I put my CF-Card into the cardreader, the folder is already named DCIM.

    Has anyone tested the Camera Connection Kit with an EOS 10D?

    Sorry, I don't have an answer for your 10D.

    Are you able to download RAW files from your 40D into the iPAD and then into your computer later, intact, or does the iPAD converts them into JPG, discarting the RAW files ?

    I have a 40D and I should get my iPAD next Friday (Canada) and this question has been burning me since Apple announced the iPAD :)

    The files will be intact. They are the original raw files as they came out of your camera. When you plug it back into your Mac, you can even upload them to Lightroom or Aperture. To delete them from your iPad, you need to download them to iphoto. It works very well actually. I was very happy. Note, I did this with an Olympus DSLR and the raw files are .ORF. But it should work that way for all the systems.

    To the OP, I think your 10D will not work because it does not support pictbridge (camera's that can print to a printer without a computer). If I am not mistaken, that is what the camera kit uses to see and pull the files from your camera (read this somewhere but I can not find where). A USB Card reader maybe your only solution.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for your reply. You are right, the iPad uses pictbridge to pull the files from the camera. I checked the canon-homepage and found out that there is a firmware upgrade for the EOS 10D available which adds pictbridge-support. After the installation, I was able to see my pics on the iPad. You helped me a lot!
