    Does anyone know if connecting the standard iPad to usb cable to a usb cable plugged into my camera, using a female to female adaptor, would work?

    Don't really want to buy the camera kit if an adaptor costing £1.20 would do the job! I have no use for the card reader bit.

    No it will NOT work. Without the camera connection kit.

    You should also be aware that if your camera draws power from the USB cable to charge it's batteries you may well need to go through a powered hub, with the camera connection kit for it to work...

    I don't think you can do that. You have to use itune.
