    Works as described

    In spite of some bad reviews I just bought this device. It works exactly as described straight out of the box with the following cameras: Canon EOS 400D, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS35 and Nikon Coolpix S9100. With the Coolpx, just one tweak: in the Menu setting, change 'Charge by Computer' from Auto to Off otherwise the iPad says the device consumes too much power. I also tried the Coolpix (left on Auto charge by computer setting) via a powered USB hub - again works beautifully. Also tried various USB memory sticks - most say they require too much power but are visible through a powered hub, but one smaller 1GB stick worked direct. However, to see photos, they must be in a root folder called DCIM, and not all photos were visible. Not sure what causes the variation. Don't rely on this device to read pictures from USB memory sticks!

    Here's why your device probably doesn't work.

    Here's why your device probably doesn't work. It's probably because with iOS 7 (can't say for 7.1), the USB adapter "can only draw 20 mA, or MilliAmps". Now this is not a hardware issue, it's Apple patching their OS to shutoff the device and give a you an error message that your device is taking too much power. Apple is being restricted and doing what they want, and no one can stop them really, that's why I own a PC (although I'd rather have a mac than a pc with Windows 8). But back to the subject of the matter. This problem can be easily circumvented by obtaining an externally powered USB hub, splitter, or whatever you want to call it. But you don't want ot have to be dependant on external power do you? NO!!! OF COURSE NOT! So, as it turns out (again can't speak for iOS 7.1, but I think that it should work), you can just use the above mentioned USB hub as a middle man between your adapter and camera, flash drive, etc. WITHOUT power from the wall, and it should work! Now, for future reference for all of you giving one stars on this product, please go google your problem first before going off about how your stuff doesn't work and is broken. You can easily fix it. It's not the device's fault, it's Apple's, because they want all the control, and want their own controlled environments where they can directly manipulate things to their liking. And do you know why no one stops them? Because they make products that, for the majority of people (who aren't tech savvy or just big materialists), they work good enough for them. Which is why everyone hates Windows, because it gives you choice, sure it's menus are odd, and the control panel's organization doesn't make sense half of the time that I use it. But you can see that with Windows 8, they took a more casual approach to appeal to the less technologically inclined. Well all those people have Macs and people who like that Microsoft gives us choice are stuck with stupid Windows 8, which restricts that choice. So it's not just Microsoft vs. Apple, they both have faults, it's Consumer Choice vs. Large Companies telling you what you can and cannot do. That's my spiel, I hope you didn't find it too rude. Hope that this helped some of you. And I hope that you have a wonderful day.

    Nikon Coolpix

    I have just used this connector to import the pictures from my camera to my iPad. Once I turned off the 'connect to computer via USB', as suggested by other reviewers it works a treat. So pleased I purchased this instead of the SD card reader, because this item will be more useful for all the cameras with different style memory cards. Thank you to all those who gave suggestions for its use. Apple should be much more helpful with usage instruction, which is why I only give this review 4 stars. The connector is perfect, but instructions are poor.

    Works with canon 5d mk1 too

    Doesn't work plug and play but a little tweak in the camera settings and the cable does what it's supposed to.
    Go to the settings in your 5d. Go to the settling that says PC-connection and change that to Print/PTP. Plug in your camera to your iPad, go to the photos app and the press the print button in the back of your 5d. Photos on your camera will now show up in your iPad and you can download them.

    Doesn't work, despite assurances from apple shop staff that it would

    Grr. I know this is officially a camera adapter but I specifically asked in my local apple store if I could use this to view photos kept on a USB memory stick on an iPad screen. I was assured that this was exactly what it did. At no point did the associate say "you would think so, wouldn't you? I thought it would too, but turns out that feature is not compatible with this device!" And so I bought this insanely expensive usb cable.

    I have tried multiple usb sticks and all give the "this device requires too much power" message. Funny thing is, it is not too much power for my android tablets to handle, and they cost far less. Why is the ipad lacking power?

    Now I've got the hassle of dealing with a return.

    Awesome! Works great and fast with my Nikon D3X and iPad Air.

    Works great with my Nikon D3X. Don't use the card reader to avoid the "not enough power" error. Use the USB that plugs in straight to the camera. All digital cameras usually come with that cable.

    iOS 7.1 killed this connector

    Since updating my iPad air to iOS 7.1 , this no longer works, I get a message that reads "This accessory requires to much power" when I plug just the adaptor in and nothing else, I also tried it with my wifes iPad 4th Gen and I get the same message. Both running iOS 7.1 was not a problem with iOS 7.0. Very frustrating! This worked great before and if it still worked after updating I would give this a 4 or 5 rating as it is was a great product, but now it is dead!

    Worked, then gone!

    I have a Canon PowerShot A1100IS camera. I connect to my iPad Air using The Apple lightning via a USB to miniUSB adapter.
    This arrangement had been working just fine for a few weeks, but today I get the message that it knows it is a Canon camera, but the connected device isn't supported. What's up with that?

    Do Not Buy This Product

    Used it for my Canon 50D, plugged it in, and lost 80% of the pictures on the CF. Big, important vacation pics gone in an instant. Do not, under any circumstances, buy this product. I cannot believe it is endorsed by Apple.

    Worked...For a while

    I used this with wired external keyboards as as well as MIDI devices, worked quite well for a few weeks now it won't recognize anything. It Doesn't even give me the "Requires too Much Power" message it used to give me when I plugged in incompatible devices. It just goes on as if nothing were ever plugged in. Disappointing. Don't really want to buy another one either because the price point is absurd, but everything else third party seems to be unsupported. What to do...

    Works great on my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera!

    I bought this hoping I could just plug it into my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera however it wasn't that simple. I got the error saying my device used too much power. After looking in the camera setting I found there was no way to turn 'USB Charging' off which is suggested.

    Fix: I was able to use the adapter without issue using a powered OR unpowered hub. This got me thinking of easier ways to use the adapter on the go without having to carry a hub with me all the time. Using a simple $5 3ft USB 2 extension cable was enough to reduce the power and did the trick. One end with a male connection and the other end with a female connection. Now I just keep the extension plugged into the adapter and roll it up, the adapter works as expected, and I am a very happy user!

    Works great with iPad mini retina screen

    Works great with my iPad mini retina screen. Now I regret not getting a bigger hard disk space on my iPad, so that I can transfer all my photos when I'm travelling. I just lost one of my SD cards on a recent trip and lost 700+ images.

    Too expensive and doesn't work!!

    This product is overpriced and useless! First the original camera connection kits came in a set with a usb to camera and a card reader option. With these you have to buy them separately. And worst they don't work! No one wants to have to get a product home and then figure it out! This should e a simple plug and play item. It says that it requires too much power when connected to my Samsung Galaxy Camera - I don't have the time to figure that out! I wish I had listened to other people's reviews on this!

    Didn't work. My iPad told me the attached accessory uses too much power! It's only a little Samsung camera. Tried chatting online to Apple support - it was like pulling teeth! Now I have to pay for the privilege to return it.
