    Far from perfect

    First time of using it uploaded photos from my Nikon D2hs and from a small Kodak camera with no problems. However, tried to use it the following day and nothing happened, just an error message " Apple does not recognise device" despite several attempts it simply refused to work. Tried again a few days later it worked again allowing me to upload from 3 different cards. What will happen next time? Just a case of wait and see. I found the experience of using it frustrating in the least

    It wasn't working but then...

    I found a way!! Like many other reviewers, this expensive cable connected fine but nothing was happening. It flashed up "uses too much power" on my iPad Pro.
    I then connected the camera via the USB 3 power connector/adaptor thing and my iPhone 7 which was charging via the plug. Connected the three together and voila, my Nikon D50 imported straight to my IPhone 7 no problem. It wouldn't work with my iPad as there was clearly not enough battery life/ power remaining on it. It only worked on my iPhone when it was charged to over 50%. For those reviewers who have the same flashing "not enough power" make sure the apple device is fully charged and hopefully it should then work.

    Doesnt Work

    Purchased to transfer pictures from my Camera to iphone and ipad air, doesnt work with either. Just comes up that the accessory uses too much power. Waste of money.

    Problem solved

    I had similar problems to others with the iPad mini saying the camera needed too much power when it was connected. I scrolled through other reviews and one said they wondered if the problem was that the camera wasn't fully charged. The camera had plenty of charge left but I put it on to charge fully just to try it. Once the charging light went off on the camera I plugged it back into the iPad mini using the adapter and the photos appeared! So now I know what to do but I think this should have been in the tips and troubleshooting section of the instruction booklet as a suggestion for when the power warning appears.

    Camera won't connect

    Like many others I can't connect my camera (a Sony RX100 iv) to the Ipad Pro - I'm told it requires too much power.

    Using with Sony Cybershot

    Having read all previous reviews was very reticent about trying this bit of kit...so bought it from John Lewis knowing that I could return it if it didn't work out. Spent ages with my Sony Cybershot looking how to change various settings. In the end just 'did it' without changing anything and it worked straight away uploading photos to my iPad. Panic over and 100 percent success.

    Does what it says

    This does what it promises - it imports photos from a camera or if you have a low power card reader, micro sd cards too.

    A few things that you need to know if using a card reader - photos must be in the right folder called DCIM and the file names must be 8 characters plus the extension, something like 73849399.jpg will work fine.

    I have two card readers - one works, the other says it requires too much power. The working one cost me £1.

    This will actually charge my Sony SBH-20 Bluetooth earphones, so power output isn't that bad, it's just that some card readers are built poorly.

    To import video or photos from things like a GoPro, buy the excellent Photofast CR-8800. Honestly, you won't look back!

    No problems connecting Nikon D800

    The cable has just arrived and I connected my Nikon D800 without any issues. I offloaded some pictures and video without a hitch onto my iPad Air, so two thumbs up here!

    Does not work

    I bought this Lightning u s b Camera adapter to connect my iPad to my piano as it supports midi. I was able to use my music apps for three months and then it stopped working it did not recognise the piano. I was advised that every thing pointed to the adapter not working so I took it back and got a replacement, to my delight it worked, but for only 14 days. There clearly is something not right with this adapted as it is not only cameras it is not recognising. I bought my iPad and Camera connection so that I could use the music apps. Please Apple do something about this.

    This must be a Joke?

    With the iPad Air its totally useless product. Keeps bringing up warning "the attached acessory requires too much power" with Zoom Q4 and several other cameras. Fix it !!!

    Do not buy!

    I bought this, was told it would work with all cameras, but quickly discovered it didn't work with any of mine! Every time it has come up with message 'this requires too much power'. I don't believe Apple should still be selling this product.

    USELESS

    Connected my Nikon Coolpix camera and also got the message that the device was too powerful. What a waste of money.

    Core Midi for keyboards

    Works great for core midi to use music apps with USB music keyboards. Have not tried for intended purpose.

    works perfectly

    I was worried about the previous reviews, but I am totally satisfied with this product. it works with my Canon EOS DSLR and also with my old Olympus Camedia. I think people may be having problems with their camera's not being fully charged up when they try to transfer.
