    Has anybody tried to plug in a USB card reader into the iPad Pro and have been able to successfully transfer photos from CF and SD cards. I know that the iPad Air 2 says two much power required. If anybody can check this is would be great.

    The Lightning to SD kit works fine. Not sure how you'd plug in a USB card reader into any iPad though?

    Just tried it. Still says "Requires too much power." :(

    What card reader did you use? I have the USB camera connection kit and it worked fine for my SD card reader (a cheap green and black transcend multiple format reader.) I've only tested SDXC cards as I don't have anything that uses CF.

    Though I will note it was painfully slow. As in I could have pulled out my laptop, put in the card, imported the footage and started editing before the iPad finished importing - slow.

    I'm really hoping they have some USB 3 level devices coming since the iPad Pro does have a USB 3 port...it really needs them.

    The most misunderstood adapter ever made.

    I have the USB camera connection kit, and as with other iOS devices the iPad Pro can read SD cards with it, but not Compact Flash cards.

    I used a powered USB hub between the reader and the connection kit but it was too much wiring for my taste, so I ended up ditching all my CF cards and using SD to CF adapters in my cameras, so I can just use the SD reader. Luckily all my cameras that take CF cards use Type II.

    One of the Smart Connector Keyboard manufacturers need to make a keyboard with an SD slot built-in for tansferring photos over/through the Smart Connector. Just sayin'
