nafik: I just returned it after almost 3weeks of trying to make it work. I bought it just to back up memory cards on safari and it failed miserable. You would expect to plug in SD card copy it and keep shooting. Nothing can be further from the truth, especially if you shot RAW.
I made a huge mistake buying it from WD store. First after I payed for expedited delivery they shipped only after I threaten them to stop credit card transaction. Then WD goes to enormous length trying to make return as difficult as possible. Never buy anything from them.

I discovered by going to the WD forums that some SD cards do not work with it (primarily older SDs). When I used the SD cards that work with it it handled them just fine. I also learned prior to buying it that shooting with raw + sm. jpeg made it much easier to identify the files--i then transfer to my Macbook pro later.

Studor13: Given that you actually already have a camera in an iPhone, do people really take and then transfer a photo from a large(r) camera back onto the phone?

It's sort of like I would take a photo with a phone and then for some unknown reason I would transfer it to my D800.

In any case, I have a Nikon J5 which has built in wifi and can transfer images to iOS devices, so I don't know what the big deal is.

I agree. I can't see myself ever transferring files to my 6s Plus. I have transferred photos to Ipad since original One but then also upload SD to PC for Lightroom/PS processing

Photato: .... and who wants to deal with an adapter?
One day Apple will have the epiphany of including a mSD card slot.
Transferring pictures shouldn't be this hard.

I've used the 30 pin adaptor for years and bought the Lightning adaptor when I bought my first Air. Frankly, I don't want an SD slot in my phone or Ipad. i have one in my Macbook Pro. A slot makes little sense to me in the very thin IOS devices. I do wish IOS dealt directly with RAW--says not but I have several photo apps that say they convert the RAW file so still confused about that.
