      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.

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

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!

      Yes it DOES work with iOS12

      I was a bit concerned buying the cable due to the two reviews here saying "don't but it doesn't work" etc, however that must have been a problem with just that I was a bit concerned buying the cable due to the two reviews here saying "don't but it doesn't work" etc, however that must have been a problem with just that release of iOS. I have iPhone8+ on the latest 12.0.1 release and the cable works perfectly - bought 22nd October 2018. I use it to connect my Chord Mojo DAC and it works flawlessly, so you can buy with confidence if you have any concerns about MIDI or audio compatibility.

      Wow - they really have left the train at the station with this pos

      Have you ever heard of a USB adapter that won't read a thumb drive? Really - a thumb drive - extra memory, no moving parts...but the ipad pro says it uses too Have you ever heard of a USB adapter that won't read a thumb drive? Really - a thumb drive - extra memory, no moving parts...but the ipad pro says it uses too much power. So what exactly is it good for - don't waste your money - and time. Store employee should have been aware of this CRITICAL short coming and informed me that it was a useless piece of garbage....

      requires USB hub to work

      Did not work with Nikon Coolpix S9300. “The attached accessory uses too much power” popped up on iPad.

Have since read in other comments that a USB hub/multiplier required. Not enough that the adapter is overpriced @ $29, but you need to spend another $10 for the hub. Ridiculous.
