Import Photos from Digital Camera to iPhone and iPad [How-to]

It is surprising how easy it is to transfer/import photos from your digital camera to your iPhone/iPad. There’s absolutely no technical stuff involved except of course one little gadget that makes it all possible: the lightning to USB camera adapter.

Once you connect both the camera and the iPhone/iPad via the adapter, your iDevice becomes smart enough to read the camera, the photos in it and lets you import them instantly. Here’s a detailed breakdown of what you need to do to import photos from your digital camera to your iDevice:

Step #8. All the imported photos will go into a new album called Imported Photos & Videos.

That’s about it. As you can see, it’s relatively simple to import photos from your camera to the iPhone/iPad.

The steps are almost the same as above. Instead of attaching the camera, you’re going just insert the SD card into the reader and the plug the lightning-end to your iPhone/iPad. Then, follow steps 4-8. You can import photos as well as videos. If you don’t see a particular photo or video on the iPhone (that is on the camera, however), it could mean that the format was unsupported or the file on camera was corrupt.
