    come on Apple, why waste my time.

    I buy this to plug an 8Gb USB drive in to get some vacation photos out onto my iPad where I love using iPhoto to organize things. And I get an error message telling me the device requires too much power and cannot be used. hrm? Too much power? An 8gb thumb drive? What's really going on here? Can an Apple hardware and or software engineer shed light on why a $30.00 external port that should be built in cannot power an 8gb usb thumb drive? Im abviously returning it. but still logically. And even from a business stand point(profit) wouldn't you want some thing to actually work in the most basic ways? I mean aren't most people buying these and plugging usb drives into them? what do I know right Apple? Well I do know this. An 8gb usb thumb drive should be able to be power by my iPad . And nobody needs to be an engineer to figure that out.
    -my $00.02

    Horrible

    Don't waste your money on this. I specifically bought this to put movies on a USB thumb drive to put into this so I could transfer movies over to my new ipad Air2. All the thumb drives I use say "too much power", i even used a hard drive with its own power source plugged into the wall and I didn't get the "too much power" instead, nothing popped up and yes the hard drive is formatted to mac's with .mp4's but none of the .mp4's showed up. Everything works fine on my macbook pro and figured, cool, i'll get an ipad so I can have movies with me anywhere I go, but not with this Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. RETURNING IT.

    Will not work with GoPro 3+

    While connected to an iPad this adapter will power A USB flash drive... However it will not work with a powered GoPro 3+... It reports the accessory uses too much power. Similarly a Micro SD to USB adapter will not work. An unfortunate waste.

    "Requires Too Much Power" Error

    This doesn't work. When I connect my camera (iPhone 6) I get an error that it requires too much power. Don't buy this.

    Does Not Work

    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.

    SOOOO frustrating...

    This is a very misleading product.
    I bought it thinking that I could scan pictures to a flash drive, connect them to my IPad Air, and go to work creating my slideshow. Ooohhhh how wrong I was!
    IN THE BOOK that comes with this adapter, it says that it is compatible with "mass storage class devices". Apple needs to specify that this WILL NOT work without buying yet another product.
    I feel like if I am using an APPLE PRODUCT it should work with another APPLE PRODUCT. All of my devices are Apple products and up to this point I have been happy with them! But I am very upset with Apple.

    Waste of money!

    Does not work with my GoPro and does not work with my sd card reader.
    A waste of money and incredible that apple is selling stuff which does not flawlessly work with their products.
    Very dissapointing!

    Didn't work with my Cameras

    I used this for my Nikon D7000 and my S8100. Upon connection to my iphone 5s both my cameras were listed as incompatible. I'm going to exchange this for the CF card reader. Hopefully that will work.

    iOS 7.1 killed this connector

    Since updating my iPad air to iOS 7.1 , this no longer works, I get a message that reads "This accessory requires to much power" when I plug just the adaptor in and nothing else, I also tried it with my wifes iPad 4th Gen and I get the same message. Both running iOS 7.1 was not a problem with iOS 7.0. Very frustrating! This worked great before and if it still worked after updating I would give this a 4 or 5 rating as it is was a great product, but now it is dead!

    Worked, then gone!

    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?

    Worked...For a while

    I used this with wired external keyboards as as well as MIDI devices, worked quite well for a few weeks now it won't recognize anything. It Doesn't even give me the "Requires too Much Power" message it used to give me when I plugged in incompatible devices. It just goes on as if nothing were ever plugged in. Disappointing. Don't really want to buy another one either because the price point is absurd, but everything else third party seems to be unsupported. What to do...

    Works great with iPad mini retina screen

    Works great with my iPad mini retina screen. Now I regret not getting a bigger hard disk space on my iPad, so that I can transfer all my photos when I'm travelling. I just lost one of my SD cards on a recent trip and lost 700+ images.

    2nd one didn't work also

    Bought one to use for holiday photo's. Christmas opened it and tried to use with my 5d mkiii. No luck. Did not work with iPhone 5, 5s and ipad air!!! Exchanged for another, and still no good with 5d mkiii and 5s or ipad air. What a waste of all that time going back and forth.

    Great Way to Run my iPad into my DAC!

    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.

    Perfect for my Canon 5D Mk II & iPad 4

    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.

    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 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.
