The Best "i" Device Accessory For Teens

Updated on February 21, 2013

The Ipad Camera Kit Will Connect Your Teen To You And Their Friends

What is the next great step for teens? Connecting those little communication devices together with the Ipad Camera Kit so that they can share masses of images and data.

For the last few years I have worked with a tablet, two iPads, and an iPod Touch and a challenge I have encountered is direct connection between these devices. Magically, the creation of the iPad camera kit not only allows connection between your camera and your iPad, which is invaluable while travelling, it allows for connection between iPads!

If you haven't been dragged into the iPad world yet, it might not mean much to you, but if you are considering an iPad and wondering how you can use it while travelling, or wondering how you could link up with a friend's machine to download photos or other content, this is the magic little device that will make connectivity happen.

Mom and Dad - this is the affordable answer to Valentine's Day for your teen!

Cheap and Easy Solution

So you get an iPad and you think it might be good for your teen to take photos. Wrong. Sorry to say, I've been extremely disappointed with the quality of images and the placement of the camera. This is when having a camera that can produce high quality, high resolution images will make your day.

Using this little, cheap, and easy to attach connector, you can link your teen's camera to your iPad because it is an adaptor for usb male cables. That cable your teen has used to sync your iPad on your computer? They can use it for their camera. They can use it for linking iPad's, too.

With the introduction of iCloud, syncing their "i" devices through their computer is no longer necessary, but don't throw away that cable. Beside using it for charging household "i" devices, your family can now use it to link to cameras.

This video will take you from opening the package of delivered device adaptors (sdcard adaptor and usb adaptor) through to hooking up the machines and working with the images.

Everyone say , "Yippeeeeeee!" ;)

Have you been using this connector? Has it made your life easier or have you had troubles?

Does your teenager know this connector exists? I see it as a great stocking-stuffer.

      @Dressage Husband: Like you, I load most of photos straight to my computer for editing and posting, but there are many times when I like to load them to the iPad so that I can do minor edits and posting when I am no where near my computer.

      Perhaps there was the expectation that if users intended to take art-quality images, they would use a camera designed for that purpose?

      I do not use this connector as I upload all my pictures from a Canon Digital Rebel SLR directly to a laptop computer for use in my articles and lenses on Squidoo. I find that the Rebel is the best entry level SLR that gives the best results for this type of work in all light conditions and all countries. Obviously an EOS 5 would be better but several thousand dollars more to buy.

      For the teenagers I think being able to connect a point and shoot to their ipad is a must, but why did Apple not put a great camera in at the price they charge? RIM did!
