      works perfectly once I changed camera communication setting

      A huge THANKS to the reviewer who suggested this - the adapter worked fine with my newish Powershot, but using my EOS 20D, which is pretty old, I got a message A huge THANKS to the reviewer who suggested this - the adapter worked fine with my newish Powershot, but using my EOS 20D, which is pretty old, I got a message that the device was not supported. I was ready to send the adapter back, because I really need it for the EOS, my main camera- I am going to England this summer and am only taking my iPad Mini, not my laptop, so have to have some way to back up photos (losing photos due to a lost/damaged card, camera, etc would be beyond tragic) Then I read the review that suggested going to the camera's menu and changing the Communication setting from Normal to PTP. Tada!! Success - the pictures loaded right up, I am very happy, and the adapter does not have to go back to Apple.

      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.

      Compatible with Canon 7D

      Works perfect with the Canon 7D. I just connect it to my iPad mini, turn on the camera, and it automatically uploads the files. I believe if you are shooting Works perfect with the Canon 7D. I just connect it to my iPad mini, turn on the camera, and it automatically uploads the files. I believe if you are shooting in RAW, it uses the jpeg generated by the camera. Fantastic!

      Well, this is part of the rich fabric of Apple orifices.

      First, there is an absolute cure to 99% of issues this USB/camera to lightning adapter/adaptor fails to solve - add a powered USB hub somehow. 100mAh is the li First, there is an absolute cure to 99% of issues this USB/camera to lightning adapter/adaptor fails to solve - add a powered USB hub somehow. 100mAh is the limit any device is permitted to draw apparently, but of course that’s not all that can go wrong. Apple it seems - deducing from my IT work - send a ‘ping’ signal down cables to check if they are their own brand. If this test signal is as I believe, a similar phenomenon to ethernet cables requiring the correct impedence and terminator, then it has nothing to do with functionality and entirely a fabricated test designed to catch 3rd party cables out. This camera adapter/adaptor is really good - I am using it now to have a USB keyboard work with my ipad because Apple systematically worked through all sorts of foibles to block bluetooth keyboards they don’t approve of, from working properly with their kit. Thus, a Bluetooth keyboard of 2016 vintage, will probably not now work to any usable extent, and I have gone through 4 different makes, before giving up and happily using the old wired USB way, which connects instantly and does not drop out as the bt ones do (now). As long as your keybd is miserly with current. A great little expensive adapter, works, and increasingly, Apple make sure nothing else does.
