I bought the Apple iPad Camera Connecter Kit thinking that it would be convenient to upload pictures to the iPad for viewing. It's been more than just convenient to upload photos, but actually a life saver. While traveling through Southeast Asia, 8gb of memory in my SLR proved to be insufficient. I didn't want to panic, but Sanur (Bali) did not leave me with many options to purchase additional memory cards and I hate the feeling of being unprepared during a trip. In came the Camera Connector Kit to the rescue! I uploaded a few hundred photos to my iPad and cleared out 3gb on my memory card. It saved me from having to delete photos or have to reconsider every shot. I don't think it's ever possible to just take one shot of the perfect picture. That's $29 well spent!
