      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!

      Waste of money

      Whatever you connect returns 'takes too much power"

Turns out that you need to get a powered usb hub or get the lightning to usb 3 adapter.

      It plugs directly into camera NOT card reader!

      READ THE PRODUCT NAME! Camera Adapter. Not card reader adapter. Not thumb drive adapter. IPads/Phones provide no power so any USB device that needs power (re READ THE PRODUCT NAME! Camera Adapter. Not card reader adapter. Not thumb drive adapter. IPads/Phones provide no power so any USB device that needs power (readers, thumb drives) will not work. Just because it looks like it should work doesn't mean it will. Leave your SD or CF card in the camera and connect the camera's micro USB jack into this using a standard USB cable. Then jack it into this adapter. Camera provides power to the SD. CAMERA --> USB cable --> USB Camera Adapter --> iPad --> Photos app or Lightroom app
