Any more experiences with these units from others? I would be interested in hearing your thoughts...

Hi North Star.
Could you kindly tell me if you copied the files from a CF card or an SD card? I've been looking for a solution to the same question & the Apple Camera Kit is only compatible with SD cards. Since I don't use a SD card, the other option - lightening to USB cable supposedly (internet tells me) can't power a card reader to copy content from CF card to iPad. And I want to avoid connecting my camera directly to the iPad ( even though thats possible with the charging turned off) if I can. Is there a way around?
Thanks for you help.
I'm pretty sure you can copy from either CF or SD... The Apple camera connection kit includes TWO connectors, one is an SD reader/connector and the other is a USB connector. Just buy(you probably already have one) a mini USB to USB cable, plug the mini USB into the camera, and the USB into the connector attached to your iPad...now you're good to go!!
Hope this helps.
Just be aware that this kit is for the old iPad connection. If you need the newer connection, you need to buy two separate cables at $29 each (or pick which one you want to use -- either direct connect to camera or plug in the SD card)
Connect to camera:
Use SD card:
I live in Labrador, Canada. To be precise, Labrador City. The nearest major city is Montreal, Quebec. It is about 1000 miles away by road (approximately). The gentleman from Alaska is in a similar environment. It is amazing how cold a camera feels when it is -30.I haven't been to Lab city since June Love the area!
I am amazed at the wildlife / scenery pictures posted here. For the few posters who said they have nothing to take pictures of, to quote a friend, "look at it like you are a tourist"
btw, the link is to a time-lapse of the drive from Goose Bay to the ferry across to the island.... enjoy!
I like your approach NancyP. I've been using Gregory Z30 and Z45 packs for my hiking/fishing/photography trips and recommend this approach to others. The challenge has been how to carry the camera gear in/on the pack.The bags your wife made you look great! I have been looking for something like them for a while if anyone knows where to purchase something similar.
I'm going to try a new approach on my weekend trips this fall. I carried my M/22 last year and that makes a nice minimum carry, but I missed the wide/telephoto I got carrying my 6D/17-40/70-200f4/1.4x combo. I picked up the EF-M 11-22 earlier this year and recently added the EF-M 55-200. The M combo (1080g) is less than half the 6D combo (2455g). My existing collection of bags and cases didn't fit these well (with a few extra batteries and CPLs). While getting an aluminum tube made for a pair of new fly rods, I decided to try a rod tube for my camera gear. They all slide nicely into a 3" paper mailing tube so I had a 15" long rod tube made, brass caps with an O-ring seal to handle the typical afternoon showers in the Rockies. Weighs less than a pound (400g) while the gear inside weighs more than twice that. My wife stitched up a few bags from some extra lens cleaning cloths to provide protection inside the tube and I added velcro tabs to close them. This looks like the smallest and strongest solution possible with little wasted space. Initial tests look promising, sits nicely in the pack or an outer pocket.
I picked up this universal L-Bracket and although it is Arca-Swiss compatible it does not work with my RRS quick release clamp. If you use a screw type Arca clamp then you should be fine. It will rotate on the camera body over time as it is not machined specifically for the M however it is less than $10.
Is anyone aware of an L bracket that's size-appropriate for this little fellow? Henjar Photo sells an L bracket for the Fuji 690 that is a little large but would work, but it's $105
"Fits in a jeans pocket" is an important priority in some some situations, which is why I got the S95 then the S100. The EOS M has better IQ (especially in low light or when a fast shutter is needed), but it's bigger and sometimes the 18-55 isn't wide enough, whereas 24mm FFeq would be (that happened today).
