    Just wondering if anyone else has any experience of using a non genuine camera connection kit for iPad?

    Just got a new iPad for parents in law, and it will used as primary computer. Want an easy way to transfer pics from camera. This looks ideal.

    Normally would go genuine, but the difference in price seems huge for something that they may not use all too much.

    They can be had on amazon/eBay for about £4-5 so was just wondering if they are reliable?

    I bought one and it wasn't very good the connection was temperamental and transferring like 500 pics it would constantly drop connection so annoying

    I brought one off eBay for £2.79 and have had no problem with it at all.

    The ones I've tested were all rubbish. Don't go with them.

    I bought one for $3 on amazon and I've never had any serious issues with them

    Hmmm, still not sure then!

    Think I might go with genuine. At least i can always take it back and have a moan if it doesn't work well. :)

    I bought on from photojojo and it works perfectly. But then again it wasn't one of those really cheap ones others are buying. I think I paid around $20.
