Useful, if limited
A useful, if limited little cable; on my iPad Mini have only been able to make it work with cameras - no other USB devices. Anyth A useful, if limited little cable; on my iPad Mini have only been able to make it work with cameras - no other USB devices. Anything powered by the USB port prompts a 'The connected USB device requires too much power' message; anything self powered (tried with multiple thumb drives, self powered USB HDDs etc) triggers no reaction at all. Other USB devices tried (mouse, keyboard!) prompt a 'The connected USB device is not supported'.
The good news is that it works fast and flawlessly with cameras - tested with Canon 50D and IXUS 100IS - brings up a separate 'Camera' group in photo album and allows the import of selected or all photos on the camera - RAW, JPEG and MOV formats and then post transfer asks if you 'want to delete the imported files from the attached camera'. Does not allow file export from iPad back to camera, and does not make available anything that the camera does not recognise as a file (ie MP4 files not shown - so can't import movies that way).
So, does what it says on the tin - connects your Camera to your iPad and will be useful to allow download and/or big screen viewing of photos when in the field - but currently that's it. …

I was wrong
I couldn't get this adapter to work at all on my new iPad Air 2 although for years I had been transferring pictures easily from my I couldn't get this adapter to work at all on my new iPad Air 2 although for years I had been transferring pictures easily from my Canon Powershot Elph 135 Camera directly via a cable to an iPad 4. After working all afternoon trying to transfer pictures from this camera (using my picture card reader) to the PC (using Windows 7) to the iPad Air 2 recently purchased, I was really upset that it wouldn't work. As a last resort I changed the cable I have been using all these years to another cable I had from a previous Canon camera. (I admit the cable I was using was slightly frayed). It worked perfectly!
I love it. So check all your cables.
Now I just have to figure out how to organize all the pictures I transfer. …

Hi, I don't have this version camera connection kit, but I thought I'd give my input since no one ha Hi, I don't have this version camera connection kit, but I thought I'd give my input since no one has answered your question!
