Unofficial Compact Flash Card reader Comes to iPad

When iPad 2 was announced, we expected it to come with card reader. Though this is something which never happened and we expecting it be released in next version iPad [iPad 3]. For now those who are looking to get CF card reader for your iPad 2, here is a good news for you:

3 in 1 camera connection kit which was announced on Micgadget is now reported to work with iPad first generation and iPad 2. Remember it’s a 3rd party accessory for your iPad.

Here is a video demo of this 3 in 1 Camera connection kit working with an iPad:

You can read more about this iPad CF reader on official page and you can purchase it from its official store for $29.90. The only sad part is this accessories doesn’t work with USB on your iPad because it emits less USB power and this device needs power of more than 20mA. This is something sad and in future, I would love to see a USB connector for iPad. Life will be so easy when we can connect USB device ( Harddisk or USB pen drive) with an iPad and extend iPad storage.

Do share your thought about this accessory and as pitched by MIC, this is targeted for professional photographer but I can see that even any normal user who using any Gadget using CF card, might like to try his hands on it.
