      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.

      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.

      Using with Sony Cybershot

      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 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.

I am trying to import 32 gig sd/micro cf card via a good quality reader and thence to ipad2 OR iPhone 5s to read traffic info( HD) ex dashcam.. Both iPad and iPhone open either photo prog OR iUSB pro ( which is the Apple certified app from the app store.) In both cases, phone or iPad says IMPORT and goes no further. Others have said make sure device is fully charged-makes no difference. The reader plugs straight into my HP laptop and plays all the video files contained on the card via Windows Media Player or Quicktime. Also, they will play via the usb port on my Sony Bravia smart tv. BUT I Want To Play the B....dy things on my iPad.........Help! Frustrated from Marlborough.

      Frustrating but simple solution for Cannon Coolpix camera

      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 fru 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.

      Worked instantly

      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! £29.9 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.
