    So, my mother got a new iPad for Christmas. She wants to use it to dump pics from the digital camera onto the iPad so she does not have to lug the laptop around on trips. Dad thought he could just use a USB cord, but then found out there's no USB port! My thought was to use an EyeFi card in the camera, and just transfer the photos via WiFi. Dad did some looking, and found Toshiba made a similar device, the Toshiba Flash Air card, for 1/2 the price of the EyeFi cards.

    So my question is this... will the Toshiba card do the transfer easily, or is there a better way?

    Jay, the best way to get photos from a digital camera to an iPad, is with the Apple Camera Connection kit.

    If your mother has an iPad Air or Air 2, it's two different products for the SD card reader and camera reader. They are $29 a piece and work very well.

    If she has a prior model then it's a combined kit for $39.

    I have been using this method since my first iPad (4 years), works well.

    Hope this helps.
