I would think that many people who are looking to purchase this SD CF Card reader are facing the same issues that I am facing... Too many photos on my iPhone and/or iPad and having to buy extra iCloud space each month to accommodate them all. This card reader turned out to be the perfect solution to that problem. I simply insert one of a number of different sized memory cards (CF, SD or TF), open up the PHOTOS app and then copy selected pictures to the card. I will be more specific with the process in a moment. One thing you do need to realize is that iOS 13 seems to have locked some options. First of all, as the product description does state, the PHOTOS app will not automatically open upon inserting the card reader. That process stopped after iOS 12. It also seems that transfer is one-way under iOS 13. In other words, you can easily download photos from your iPhone to a memory card, but there is no uploading option. I tried uploading a photo to my Facebook page from the memory card and there was no way to do it. This is not the fault of the manufacturer and applies to all such readers across the board. This is a software restriction. Restrictions aside, this is a really compact reader that is of exceptional build quality. I even took a good look at the lightning cable connector to see if it will stand up to the rigorous task of connecting/disconnecting and it appears that the plug is solid. Transfers from phone to memory card were pretty fast. I only had a SD card on hand, but upon selecting about two dozen photos from my iPhone library, I simply click on the share button -> save to files -> name of memory card. Due to the bulk of hi-res photos I selected, the transfer wasn't instantaneous, but they successfully transferred in about 20 seconds. I can then take the card out and view photos on another device, or even use it as storage for more photos I wish to safeguard. Best of all, there is no additional software needed. This is a simple plug and transfer device that works exceptionally well. Highly recommended!

This is incredible! The old (and now very expensive) blu had lower quality inserts of the uncut footage which were kind of jarring. A whole new consistent scan of the film is welcome.
I still haul out the real3D version of the remake every once in a while.
