    I bought this item to use it with my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 150. Connected the kit, chose PTP on my camera and then I saw the 'import' appear on my I pad (air)... to see it dissapear very quickly. Tried it more than 10 times. Same experience over and over. Horrible. Tried the I phone (4) and it worked like a charm and very quick too. Tried it with an old camera (Minolta Dimage X 50) and even that worked. Unbelievable. I'll maybe try to use it with a USB hub but don't have one yet. I tried to format the SD card to exFAT but my camera formats it back to FAT32.
    I gave it one star because it worked with other devices. Very very very disappointed. Bought an apple device because I like devices that work and are easy to use but I regret it very very very much.

    Not compatible with all digital cameras

    • Written by McGregor G from Brunswick

    Although no mention in the instructions, this cable is not compatible with the Olympus XZ-2 iHS. It may not be compatible with other digital cameras that cannot have the auto charging shut off. It draws too much power for the iPad to function, presumably because it is trying to chage the batteries in the camera from the iPad. Wish this had been in the compatibility list.

    Does Not Work

    • Written by Stephen H from Mammoth Lakes

    I received my new Ipad Air 2, including Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. Adpater is useless as it does not recognize my camera. I had to download photos via my old MacBook onto iPhoto. I purchased this adapter to avoid doiing that. From reading this appears to be an issue with 8.1 opertating system.

    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.

    Practically useless

    • Written by Giulio C from Refrontolo

    This cable can be use to import-ONLY photos from a camera to an iOS device. It can be also used to connect something as an audio unit, but will not recharge the battery of your iOS device, so you’ll have limited recording time before plugging it to a wall recharger.

    USB flash drive. Using usb lightening adaptor cable

    • Written by Geoff C from Camborne

    Got the Apple USB to Lightening cable adaptor as a gift, it was bought from Apple Store in Exeter. It was for my iPad Air running iOS9.2.Unfortunately it first said needed more power so I bought a powered USB hub from Amazon but still didn't work saying it cannot read any of my flash drives. I ask Apple, what's the point of selling a USB to lightening converter if it never works? Apple should tell you about these pitfalls BEFORE you buy. The SD card lightening connector works perfectly without powered hub and transferred my camera photos without fuss.

    almost useless

    • Written by nathan W from SAN JOSE

    I was a fan of the old USB camera kit. I could connect a card reader to it, or a midi device, or a camera, and transfer stuff and interact with the items on the other end.

    Alas, with this device I am not able to do much. Even a simple SD card reader is not able to work. I bought two different ones, thinking maybe I encountered a fluke. No such luck.

    Save your money. Don't bother with this. The closest I got was when using it connected to a camera, but even then the ability to tell it to just import the JPG part of a JPG+RAW set of photos is still broken. Bummer.

    If you are going to only want to import RAW photos, or don't shoot RAW, and have a USB cable for your camera, and your camera can be set to NOT try to charge off a USB connection, you may find this useful. Otherwise, take a pass.

    Pointless product

    • Written by Mike W from Toronto

    Since the new i0s system is not compatible with this product it is completely pointless and a waste of money - just like my iPad is becoming.

    Worked, then gone!

    • Written by John P from Cambridge

    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?

    Primary Use streaming Music Apps / Audio to Chord Hugo DAC Headphone Amp.

    • Written by Ronald B from Cerritos

    Caution: now on my second new L-CCK after a year or so fairly good experience with the first, a success. But, look out for pop ups reading "Accessory is not supported by iPad", oh, and thinking, it could not be the Apple Product, well it was! Proof - bought a replacement, yes laid out $$$$ again, and now it (new one one) works... Asked around... Learned that L-CCK just does not last forever, well, I guess nothing does, but only after a year or so, come on Apple, who are you kidding...my advice Make a better product by improving durability!

    Useless piece

    • Written by ERWIN A from Redfern

    Initially I bought it to transfer photos from my camera to my iPad Pro for editing, I was going to buy the SD Card reader but staff at Apple recommended this USB to Lightning connector instead and said that could be used for USB stick to back up photos to. Tried a couple of different USB2 cables and both the camera and the USB stick, none works and keeps getting message the device uses too much power ????. I tried to connect a card reader via USB and get the same message. Wonder really what works with this connector then ?

    Problem solved

    • Written by Jacqueline M from Chorley

    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.

    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.

    Finally iPhone support and digital audio OUT support but...

    • Written by Brian L from SUNNYSIDE

    The latest release of iOS (9.2) adds support to the iPhone, I've tried it with various devices there are a few restrictions. There is a power restriction if the device connected to the camera adapter draws to much power you'll need a powered USB hub.

    I was only able to get the following device to work with a USB powered hub attached
    - USB memory stick with indicator light
    - USB basic keyboard
    - USB digital audio out to a head phone amp.
    Without the USB powered hub I get a power usage warning.

    Digital audio from your iPhone is not line level out meaning you still control the volume from your iPhone.

    • Written by Benjamin Q from Gainesville

    No one else makes one of these that works reliably so I have purchased this product at least three times and the life span is embarrassing. My most recent one only worked for a few months without beginning to cut out when moved. These should cost $3. Garbage.

    It works, but software limitations prevent it from being useful to me

    • Written by Zach B from WEST SACRAMENTO

    When I plug in my camera to an iPad I want the option to only import jpg to get a good idea of how my shots turned out. Bringing in dozens of raw files eats up space with the quickness.
    Also this doesn't work with iPhone 6+. Maybe something for consideration of the 6+s to make everyone buy a new phone. Psh!
