    Works like magic

    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.

    iOS 11.2 has ruin my life.

    Since the iOS 11.2 got available as update to the iPhone 6+, my Lightning to USB Camera Adapter DOES NOT WORK!!
    It keeps saying that is not compatible, EVEN when it has nothing else plugged.

    I've try to plug another device to it (No positive results)
    I've try to restart the phone, and plug it back in. and IT DIDN'T WORK.
    After that day I tried again, and it magically detected the device I plugged. But I tried again, and it didn't work.

    HOW CAN I SOLVE THIS? I WORK WITH THIS, and this problem it's making my work harder.

    The connected device requires too much power

    The USB drivers could really use some work here. Running into the same issue like everyone else.

    Zero stars

    I should have read the reviews before buying. Tried with canon, Sony and Panasonic cameras and camcorders. It imported only pictures but not videos. Import functionality also has the worst user interface. You can only see thumb nails and there’s is no bulk import option - so it’s useless unless you are importing only a handful pics. Connecting to my latest Casio keyboard through midi also did not work. Time to dump not just this adapter but also the iPad and stick to the PC. iPad Pro is not really for any pro work.

    Not so "Universal"

    Apple seems to have crippled this USB adapter. I'm just confirming what others have commented on this pretty much being useless. I was not able to get a successful connection on any device I tried connecting to my 10.5 iPad Pro (USB Stick, USB SD Card reader, USB keyboard, etc). The iPad would return messages saying they would all require too much power. Just terrible, and useless.

    It is promptly going to be returned and I will look elsewhere for a solution.

    Can't make this work

    Connected to iPad and iPhone and neither worked. Got message that there was not enough power. Tried all setting fixes suggested in reviews and still no luck. Will be returning this item. Very disappointed.

    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.

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

    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...

    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".

    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!

    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.

    I bought it today to use on my trip to Europe and it absolutely does NOT work. It said "requires too much power." I connected it to my iPad mini and it said the same thing. Do not buy it because it does not work.
