    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.

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    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.

    Perfect for my old Sony camera!

    • Written by Andrew M from El Paso

    I have an old Sony DSC-R1 camera that I love and I use for everything. I also bought a 9.7" iPad Pro that I also love. This adapter is perfect! I use the adapter and my camera's USB cable and as soon as I connect the iPad and my DSC-R1 the iPhoto app pops up on the display and I can transfer my pictures. I had to set the USB mode to PTP.

    Works great with my M-Audio 49 Keys keyboard...

    • Written by Dave S from Edmonton

    Bought this unit after hearing it could be used to connect USB compatible keyboards to iOS devices, allowing one to take advantage of the many synth apps for iPads and iPhones.

    I plugged it in initially and received the error about not having enough power, so I plugged in a power supply into the 49 Keys and it worked beautifully.

    I tested it on a handful of synth apps, in addition to Garageband and it worked on all of them.

    I am very happy with my purchase for the requirement I bought it for.

    Works perfectly

    • Written by PAUL J from Robina

    Hi, purchased this to use with a Nikon D300 DSLR and the iPad Air2, worked perfectly, just remember to change your camera USB settings to PTP.

    For some reason could not get the 'Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter' to work no matter what the settings. Anyway the 'Lightning to USB Camera Adapter' auto detects and starts the photo app immediately, transfer rate is very fast and then it prompts you to either keep or delete the original file on the camera. Works with RAW photos as well. Very happy.

    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.

    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.

    Works as advertised.

    • Written by Kevin L from Berlin

    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.

    Worked instantly

    • Written by stuart B from glasgow

    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.

    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.

    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!
