    Pricey and it does what it says on the TIN.

    Lightning to USB Camera Adapter is perfect for my needs. It does what it says and that is conenct a digital camera (Canon 60D) and transfer photos (I only shoot RAW) and videos to my Ipad mini. Fast Photos/videos transfer and they are not altered in any way. Be careful though as it requires precise power requirement from the device. If your device USB requires a lot of power then the Ipad mini will not be able to provide that power which is understandable. Mostly devices that requires charging via USB connection, those may fail as they consume too much power. Digital SLR like my Canon 60D does nto recharge from USB connection. 4 stars cause it is a bit expensive.

    Took some fiddling with camera settings

    Took a bit of fiddling with my camera settings (Canon 350D and Nikon Coolpix) but once the correct options had been picked worked really well.

    Adds a lot of functionality

    I've connected the lightning to usb camera adapter to a kensington usb powered hub so I could connect a midi keyboard via an EMU USB to midi adapter and a USB audio interface. Both worked simultaneously just like they do on my iMac. I've also connected directly to my Canon Powershot Camera and transferred photos no problem. However connecting a USB drive is very limited, you can format as FAT and put a DCIM folder containing pictures and movies, essentially you trick iOS into thinking its a Camera file system.

    The downside is it is expensive and there is no second lightning port to charge via Apple's power adapter. The best one can hope for is that a powered USB hub might trickle charge or reduce battery consumption.
