Transfer Pictures From Camera To Ipad

I have a Nikon D7200 and an Apple iPad. I shoot everything in jpeg. I also have an Apple connector that accepts my SD card in one end and plugs into my iPad on the other end. My routine is to remove my SD card from the camera, inset it into the connector and plug it into the iPad. The iPad then recognizes the camera and brings the images up on the screen. I select the images I want to import (usually all of them) and press import. They then transfer to the camera one at a time.

I went through this process with the images I shot today. I pressed import and the images immediately disappeared. They disappeared too quickly to be transferred but I still checked every file on my iPad. No pictures. I put the SD back in the camera and tried viewing the images with the same result. Anyone had this happen? I’m not certain if it’s the camera, the connector or the iPad but plan to do some testing tomorrow to see if I can narrow it down. Thank you for your help.

No idea what happened, but I do have some advice. Don't take any more images on that card.

How were you using this and the 2nd card? (Raw, JPEG, overflow?). Just wondering if you were trying to upload raw or JPEG to the IPad and what’s on the other card. Are the images important, and if they’re not duplicated on the 2nd card, have you tried Recuva on the card with the missing images?

I was shooting in jpeg on both cards. The second card was used for overflow and is blank. I haven’t tried Recuva. Good idea. Thank you.

If you succeed, I suggest that you first make sure your SD/IPad dongle works properly with another card and then permanently retire the card that failed. If you’re taking important photos that can’t be replicated, you might consider writing raw to one card and JPEG to the other (or JPEG or raw to both) rather than using the 2nd card in overflow mode. You’ve just likely proven that SD cards DO fail, no matter how unlikely.

How can the iPad recognise the camera when it is only reading the card??

If you can see the photos in the camera's rear screen then there's a good chance they are intact. From memory, the D7200 can copy photos from one card to the other. So if the card in slot 2 is empty you can copy all or selected photos from the card in slot 1 (assuming that's where the photos in question are stored) to the card in slot 2. You will find the copy facility under the PLAYBACK MENU - Copy image(s). Check your Nikon users manual for the precise details on what to do.

I had this happen once. I hit delete which is next to import. Like you said it goes away quickly. Luckily I had a CF card as a backup

Nikon names the card with the camera model when you format it in the camera

Take some pictures with another card.
Transfer as usual. If the same thing happens there’s something wrong with the dongle. If not, it was the card that went bad. (All things being equal.)

I’m not a Nikon user, but doesn’t your camera support Bluetooth? Makes transferring photos a lot easier.

Thanks. Makes more sense than the original statement.

When I inset the adapter, D7200 comes up on the iPad under photos. I don’t know how it does it, I just know it does.
