      works perfectly

      I was worried about the previous reviews, but I am totally satisfied with this product. it works with my Canon EOS DSLR and also with my old Olympus Camedia.

I think people may be having problems with their camera's not being fully charged up when they try to transfer.

      No longer works - DO NOT BUY!

      This used to be a great product but no longer works since iOS 11.2. I'm now using iOS 11.3 and still all i get is the message: 'this accessory is not supported This used to be a great product but no longer works since iOS 11.2. I'm now using iOS 11.3 and still all i get is the message: 'this accessory is not supported by this iPhone' - the iPhone in question is an iPhone 8 but it also stopped working on iPad and iPhone SE, all since iOS 11.2. Shame on Apple for still selling this!

      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 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.

      No USB 3

      Doesn't work with USB 3.0 memory sticks, says the device needs more power.

      Don’t buy

      I have used one of these for several years and it has been great. However after updating both my iPad mini4 and iphone8 it stopped working. Assuming it had worn I have used one of these for several years and it has been great. However after updating both my iPad mini4 and iphone8 it stopped working. Assuming it had worn out I went into town to buy another. When I got home I tried again but it didn’t work so ended up having to go back into town to get my money back. The shop couldn’t make it work either. I also took the camera to be checked even tho this was only 2 moths old as is my iPhone. I tried it ina very old iPad mini iOS 9 and it worked. I then contacted Apple and spent 45 mins on chat. This didn’t sort it either in the end the advice I was given was to back up my devices and reset to factory settings. This I’m certainly not prepared to do with my 2nth old phone. So until apple have sorted this problem out I suggest don’t buy one.

      Whatever you connect returns 'takes too much power"
