    works perfectly once I changed camera communication setting

    • Written by Beth B from boone

    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

    • Written by Louise K from Calverton

    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

    • Written by William W from carbondale

    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!

    "Your experiences and opinions will help others make decisions ......"

    • Written by Don C from Englewood

    This Lightning To USB Adapter works perfectly - IF YOU USE IT PROPERLY. As Apple clearly states at the top of this Review page .... "Your experiences and opinions will help others make decisions before they make important purchases."

    Short & Sweet - and To The Point.

    As far as I know - ALL Apple adapters REQUIRE a small amount of Plug In Power or Bias Power which is supplied by the adapted device, BUT unfortunately iPhones and iPads (Lightning) draw power instead of distribute power; Therefore - adapters and devices that require power, i.e. USB Flash Drives, USB Hubs or USB-powered SD Card Readers WILL NOT WORK with this particular cable (Lightning).

    BUT if your intention is to download audio, video and image files from a POWERED device like a laptop, a desktop computer, a DSLR camera or an Audio Interface to your iPhone or iPad - "it's all good.

    Perfect for my Canon 5D Mk II & iPad 4

    • Written by Joe A from Montreal

    Purchased the adapter today. Plugged it to my iPad 4th gen. 128 GB. Plugged my Canon 5D Mk II into the USB side with the camera's cable. Turned the camera on; magic! Thumbnails of all the photos on the card (~225 RAW) appeared in less than a minute, along with a button to transfer them all to the iPad and one to delete all (from the camera). You can also select individual photos for downloading/deletion.

    Downloaded all photos in about 10 min., which is reasonable for me. Then hooked my iPad to my desktop, selected the photos from Windows Explorer, took about 2-3 min. Then erased all photos from the iPad.

    The cycle for me is complete, since I intend on using my iPad as backup during my photography trips. I would then download the photos to my desktop upon my return.

    The photos can also be viewed on the iPad in a really decent quality.

    All this with no apps to download (at least for the iPad 4) and no errors for me.

    Highly recommended, especially if you have my combination of camera/tablet or similar.

    Great Way to Run my iPad into my DAC!

    • Written by Eric A from Fresno

    I'm using this dongle to connect the audio output of my iPad Mini to my PS Audio Digital Link III DAC, and thence to my high-end living room stereo. It worked instantly, sending bit-perfect signal to my DAC. Unfortunately, my DAC does not charge the iPad through the cable, but otherwise I am thrilled. This way I can bypass the DAC and the headphone amp in my iPad and get right to the juicy, er, bits. I'm very happy about this, particularly since it lets me run Eno's amazing Scape app in very high fidelity audio.

    Use with a Camera? Or as a Hi-Res Audio Connector?

    • Written by Jon M R from Wheat Ridge

    I use this adapter not for photos but for audio.

    I use Roon and Tidal for hi-res playback, attaching the adapter to my iPad mini. Then I plug a Dragonfly Red DAC into the USB output. From there I can power good headphones (ATH-M50x) for a wonderful listening experience. Plus, with the right audio cables, I can connect the iPad to an AVR, giving me two more Roon/Tidal endpoints.

    Works perfectly.

    Using with Sony Cybershot

    • Written by Linda D from Hutton

    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.

    Yes it DOES work with iOS12

    • Written by Michael R from Salford

    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.

    Works Great!

    • Written by Craig T from Seattle

    I purchased this to attach a DragonFly Red DAC to the Lightning port so I can play hires audio using TIDAL and the ONKYO hires music player. It works perfectly and the audio sounds great. No extra power needed.

    I also have the larger USB camera adapter with the additional Lightning charging/power port to use with my Canon 5DMII. My recommendation if you are looking to download photos you should buy that one. You will need to plug the adapter into power to make it go.

    I purchased this smaller one because it is more streamlined for my portable audio needs.

    Works like magic

    • Written by Will L from San Diego

    I am using this with a 2nd gen ipad mini + ios 11.1.2 + Sony A100 DSLR

    It just works. Plug the camera in, turn it on, the ipad mini immediately shows the photo import screen. It imports photos FAST and then I can delete them off the camera. Quite happy with this.

    So many disappointed people posting 1 star reviews. I didn't have an alternative so I took a chance.

    Works great for Chord Mojo and Dragonfly DACs

    • Written by Brian D from Sacramento

    I was initially hesitant to buy this for DAC use due to the reviews that the “accessory not supported” message is thrown by current iOS releases.
    I can state unequivocally that this lightning to Camera USB adapter works flawlessly on iOS 12.1.4
    Don’t be misled by the complaints, they are either victims of a knock off adapter that wasn’t purchased from Apple
    or they have dirty pins/contacts on their lighting port/plug.

    I got taken by some amazon seller that falsely claimed the adapter was genuine (it was priced like it was
    genuine as well).
    It worked fine on older versions of iOS but the “unsupported accessory” message
    started appearing after an iOS update.
    Such a scenario is hardly Apple’s fault, it was my own fault for putting myself in a position to get scammed.

    Buy this adapter with confidence.

    Frustrating but simple solution for Cannon Coolpix camera

    • Written by John P from Weymouth

    i bought this cable so that i could download photos onto my iPad so reduce the risk of losing all of my photos on my camera if i lost it. So it was somewhat frustrating when i connected the camera to the ipad only for the screen message saying "uses too much power" and unable to download.

    i have a Cannon coolpix. one of the functions on the camera allows for the camera to be charged using a computer. REMEDIAL ACTION -Go to this function and disable function.

    Connected camera to ipad and it works straight away with no problems. Now all i need to do is connect the camera power lead to the plug and power direct from the mains and not use the computer

    Frustrating but simple solution.

    Does what it says

    • Written by Philip C from Chislehurst

    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!

    Initially held off on purchasing the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter based on the negative reviews assuming it wouldn't work with my device. Decided to give it a shot and was very pleased with the efficiency and ease of the transfer. Works like a charm on the iPhone 6 with the most updated iOS 9.2.1
