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. …

Lighting USB camera adaptor, what a joke!!
I purchased this lighting to USB camera adapter and 2 different times I received a message telling me that the connected Nikon Coo I purchased this lighting to USB camera adapter and 2 different times I received a message telling me that the connected Nikon CoolPix S3500 needs more power to use with the connected USB. The battery in the camera is fully charged. Tomorrow I will be taking my iPad Mini 2 with my camera and the purchased lighting to USB camera adapter to the store and ask them to help me out or get my money refunded. As I am living in Europe, 29€ is not cheap. Apple should test their products for bugs more. If you can suggest any helpful ideas, I would very much appreciate your comments. …
