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. …

At first I read a couple of reviews and they said they weren't that good. So I thought to play it safe I would get the lightning to SD card reader. When I got to the shop they were out of SD cards ones. So I took a chance and bought this. I am glad I did. This bit of handy kit transfers photos in 2 seconds I find it amazing.
The only problem with it I think is that you can't transfer videos. …

Cool idea, needs more uses
I bought this adapter thinking that I could use it with my iPhone 5s, but unfortunately cameras are not supported on any iPhone mo I bought this adapter thinking that I could use it with my iPhone 5s, but unfortunately cameras are not supported on any iPhone model. However, I was able to use it to plug the Apogee Jam guitar adapter into my iPhone and use it to record my guitar with Garage Band which was very surprising. Other than that, I haven't found much use for it so I'll probably return it. …

No, you need the 30-pin version. It's called the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit.
