    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 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! £29.99, but worth the cost, to get almost instant access to edit/share photographs.

    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 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.

    Does what it says

    This does what it promises - it imports photos from a camera or if you have a low power card reader, micro sd cards too.

    A few things that you need to know if using a card reader - photos must be in the right folder called DCIM and the file names must be 8 characters plus the extension, something like 73849399.jpg will work fine.

    I have two card readers - one works, the other says it requires too much power. The working one cost me £1.

    This will actually charge my Sony SBH-20 Bluetooth earphones, so power output isn't that bad, it's just that some card readers are built poorly.

    To import video or photos from things like a GoPro, buy the excellent Photofast CR-8800. Honestly, you won't look back!

    No problems connecting Nikon D800

    The cable has just arrived and I connected my Nikon D800 without any issues. I offloaded some pictures and video without a hitch onto my iPad Air, so two thumbs up here!

    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.
