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. …

Works great on my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera!
I bought this hoping I could just plug it into my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera however it wasn't that simple. I got the error sa I bought this hoping I could just plug it into my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera however it wasn't that simple. I got the error saying my device used too much power. After looking in the camera setting I found there was no way to turn 'USB Charging' off which is suggested.
Fix: I was able to use the adapter without issue using a powered OR unpowered hub. This got me thinking of easier ways to use the adapter on the go without having to carry a hub with me all the time. Using a simple $5 3ft USB 2 extension cable was enough to reduce the power and did the trick. One end with a male connection and the other end with a female connection. Now I just keep the extension plugged into the adapter and roll it up, the adapter works as expected, and I am a very happy user! …
