    Frustrating but simple solution for Cannon Coolpix camera

    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.

    Works as advertised.

    Just got his adapter yesterday for my iPad Pro 10.5 and it works perfectly. I’m running iOS 10.3.2 and I’ve had no issues like others have mentioned. Photos app pops up not too long after you plug it in, pick the images you want to impor, and it does the job. Imported about 1200 high res images in about 3 minutes or so.

    DOES NOT WORK WITH GOPRO

    'Requires to much power' message is displayed when connecting GoPro to iPad so is completely useless.

    Nope!

    Does not work.
    Plug in small camera, this device requires too much power.
    More Apple rubbish.

    Worked instantly

    Having read various reviews, performance of this appeared patchy. But, it worked first time on my Nikon D700 to iPad Air. Plug n play! Couldn't be easier! £29.99, but worth the cost, to get almost instant access to edit/share photographs.

    Not suitable for use with unpowered USB thumb drives

    Expected to be able to import/export photos from an iPad to a standard USB thumb drive, but the product fails to connect to any of the USB thumb drives I had available, both USB2 and USB3, failing with a "device uses too much power" error, so it was useless for this purpose. From further research, it appears it will only work by connecting to USB thumb drives through a powered USB hub.

    Lightning to USB Camera Adapter

    For anyone having an issue with overload of power or insufficient power...

    I JUST LEARNED YOU NEED TO BUY A POWERED USB HUB TO POWER WHATEVER YOU WANT TO PLUG IN....


    THAT IS ALL

    Does not work with Canon 50D

    Canon 50D does not have an option to change the communication mode to PTP, so this adapter will not work with it. (I updated the camera's firmware to 1.0.9, but this setting was still not available.) Also, it may work with some card readers, but would not work with mine. I think the problem is that a normal USB port on a computer provides power to any device that is plugged into it. I don't think the iPhone does this, so you get an error stating that there is not enough power to operate the device.

    Works with iPad Mini 2 and Canon EOS20D

    Works with my iPad Mini 2 and Canon EOS20D perfectly. Just make sure you change the communication setting in your Canon EOS from "Normal" to "PTP".

    warning of drawing to much power

    I pad air 2. apple adapter to camera used to work and then it stopped.. After trying a different camera it worked. Found out that in camera menu there was a setting for USB power... I turned this off and now the apple adapter works find on my iPad 2 air and my iPad mini 4 and both cameras.
    Actually my Sony camera menu option was USB power supply---either on or off.. Adapter did not work when this was on---you need to turn it off.

    Far from perfect

    First time of using it uploaded photos from my Nikon D2hs and from a small Kodak camera with no problems. However, tried to use it the following day and nothing happened, just an error message " Apple does not recognise device" despite several attempts it simply refused to work. Tried again a few days later it worked again allowing me to upload from 3 different cards. What will happen next time? Just a case of wait and see. I found the experience of using it frustrating in the least

    Not compatible with Ricoh Theta SC

    Device asks for too much power. So is there another adaptor that WILL work with the Theta SC? (And exactly what cameras DOES this adaptor work with?)

    USB Audio

    I use this adapter to stream my audio through an external DAC

    this adapter allows me to connect the Fiio E18 Portable Amp/DAC and listen to music through the Fiio device

    another great, albeit bulky, way to add a headphone jack to your iPhone 7

    however, the adapter ripped after a few months of use

    Does not work with my cameras and iPad

    I tried this adapter with several of my cameras and it just does not work. The iPad or iPhone tells me that the camera draws too much power. That's quite bad for a camera adapter not to work with cameras.. Looking at the reviews on this site I should not be surprised that my adapter does not work, as most people seem unhappy about it!

    It wasn't working but then...

    I found a way!! Like many other reviewers, this expensive cable connected fine but nothing was happening. It flashed up "uses too much power" on my iPad Pro.
    I then connected the camera via the USB 3 power connector/adaptor thing and my iPhone 7 which was charging via the plug. Connected the three together and voila, my Nikon D50 imported straight to my IPhone 7 no problem. It wouldn't work with my iPad as there was clearly not enough battery life/ power remaining on it. It only worked on my iPhone when it was charged to over 50%. For those reviewers who have the same flashing "not enough power" make sure the apple device is fully charged and hopefully it should then work.

    Died within 6 months

    Got the adapter on 03.18.2016, used 5 times and died last nite during a practice session. I use this with the iPad for my Samson Carbon 49 midi controller. I have a show in a week and now I have to go rush and get a replacement for something that was barely used. Horrible product.

    What a joke, unbelievable!!!

    This is unbelievable, all of a sudden, when connecting to my ipad I get this message saying: accessory unavailable and that's crazy considering the fact that it was working for at least three weeks since I purchased it and I haven't had any problems until now. I use it as a midi connector for my korg microkey-air keyboard so it's not the keyboard it's this useless piece of junk of a product. I've tried an usb hub, still no solution. Thirty-dollar's down the drain. They are going to keep making billions of dollars, I don't care; I am done with rotten apple and they're mediocre overrated products. They seriously need to get it together, I am so tired of the frustration. Stupid me, I also spent over a hundred dollars in music apps because of my use of the camera connection kit for my production. Thank you so much Apple, for ruining my workflow and taking my hard-earned money. Pathetic!!!

    Apple, you are insulting me!

    I have purchased this item naive enough to think that it may allow me to transfer high-resolution photos from my DSLR into my iPad mini 4.. ..a very understandable mistake since it is presented this way.. HOWEVER, when I import TIFF photographs into my iPad the primitive "Photos" app automatically reduces the quality and compresses the TIFF format to a 3,5 Mpx photo. Apple, I love your products, but this is a major fail and I feel insulted. Stop trying to appeal to professionals when you are not able to keep up with their needs.

    Problem solved

    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.
