Ok so i bought the camera connection kit once again for my iPad 2, This time, i am going to keep it until i can find out what and how to do what i need it to do. I plan on buying a new digital camera ( my old one is due for a upgrade ) and i really want one that has a SD card, so that i can easily pop out the card and plug it into the iPad 2 and import Photos and Videos. Now i have a Sony HD camcorder that uses a SD card, i took photos with it and they import fine. I recorded HD video and also set it to record SD video ( different formats ) and neither of the 2 videos showed up on the iPad. I then took the SD card out, put it into my iMac, and dragged over 3 different video files. .avi, .mov., .mpg ( 3 minute clips i pulled from the net ) just to "test" and see what formats this thing will import..and once again...nothing! So i took a test video with my iPhone 4, plugged it in with the USB cable this time and it imported the video fine. My iphone videos are .mov format...So why didnt the .mov file that i downloaded ( a quick sample off the net ) not import? Pretty much, i am trying to figure out which digital camera will work with the iPad and import both pics and vids without any need to re-encode them. I just want them to simply import and be able to watch ( like how the iPhone 4 video did ) Could anyone help me out with this one? or know which cameras work? or what format i am suppose to be looking for?
