      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.

      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!

      Incompatible with GoPro

      I connected the new iPad to my HD hero3 and it wouldn't connect because the GoPro used too much power

      There is hope!

      After purchasing this product and experiencing the same frustration expressed in most reviews, I discovered that in the case of my camera at least... sony a7iii After purchasing this product and experiencing the same frustration expressed in most reviews, I discovered that in the case of my camera at least... sony a7iii... all I had to do to make this product work was to go to the Setup4 menu fourth item down and turn USB power supply off. How I figured this out I don't know. Thank you to all of you out there who provided clues that a cell phone doesn't want to provide power to a power hungry camera.

      USELESS

      Does not work with flashdrives, okay. But it does not work even with powered GoPro6 saying that accessory requires too much power. This adapter is really waste Does not work with flashdrives, okay. But it does not work even with powered GoPro6 saying that accessory requires too much power. This adapter is really waste of money. .

      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 o 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.
