    Works with all cameras I think..

    • Written by from granada hills

    I believe the USB connector kit works with all kinds of cameras unless the size of your memory card you're using is super big and pretty much full, then it won't.

    It works, but software limitations prevent it from being useful to me

    • Written by from WEST SACRAMENTO

    When I plug in my camera to an iPad I want the option to only import jpg to get a good idea of how my shots turned out. Bringing in dozens of raw files eats up space with the quickness.
    Also this doesn't work with iPhone 6+. Maybe something for consideration of the 6+s to make everyone buy a new phone. Psh!

    I was wrong

    • Written by from Chicago

    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.

    Pointless product

    • Written by from Toronto

    Since the new i0s system is not compatible with this product it is completely pointless and a waste of money - just like my iPad is becoming.

    excellent

    • Written by from New Delhi

    bought this camera adapter and the life is now simple. no need to carry your laptop on your vacation. only the iPad and camera is good enough. connect the iPad to lightning end and camera USB to this adapter and it immediately opens the photo application. Select the photos to import and it transfers to iPad. at the end it even asks you if you want to delete the imported photos from camera

    Lighting USB camera adaptor, what a joke!!

    • Written by from Gonderange

    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.

    GREAT!!!

    • Written by from Bradenton

    Compact. Sleek. Highly functional. As a music producer, I'm on the go all the time and being able to connect my midi keyboard controllers to my iPad is great! It allows me to jot down ideas and create full on productions in garageband and others keyboard Apps.

    Frustrating

    • Written by from Sint-Amandsberg

    I bought this item to use it with my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ 150. Connected the kit, chose PTP on my camera and then I saw the 'import' appear on my I pad (air)... to see it dissapear very quickly. Tried it more than 10 times. Same experience over and over. Horrible. Tried the I phone (4) and it worked like a charm and very quick too. Tried it with an old camera (Minolta Dimage X 50) and even that worked. Unbelievable. I'll maybe try to use it with a USB hub but don't have one yet. I tried to format the SD card to exFAT but my camera formats it back to FAT32.
    I gave it one star because it worked with other devices. Very very very disappointed. Bought an apple device because I like devices that work and are easy to use but I regret it very very very much.

    Not compatible with all digital cameras

    • Written by from Brunswick

    Although no mention in the instructions, this cable is not compatible with the Olympus XZ-2 iHS. It may not be compatible with other digital cameras that cannot have the auto charging shut off. It draws too much power for the iPad to function, presumably because it is trying to chage the batteries in the camera from the iPad. Wish this had been in the compatibility list.

    Please let this work with the iPhone 6 plus!!

    • Written by from Martham

    The adapter has worked flawlessly with my iPad mini three and several canon dslrs. However I am extremely frustrated at not being able to use this with my shiney new iphone 6 plus. With the improved battery life and processor I thought this was going to be the ideal tool for reviewing my photos on the move only to be presented with " this device is not supported"
    Please sort this ASAP!!!

    come on Apple, why waste my time.

    • Written by from Austin

    I buy this to plug an 8Gb USB drive in to get some vacation photos out onto my iPad where I love using iPhoto to organize things. And I get an error message telling me the device requires too much power and cannot be used. hrm? Too much power? An 8gb thumb drive? What's really going on here? Can an Apple hardware and or software engineer shed light on why a $30.00 external port that should be built in cannot power an 8gb usb thumb drive? Im abviously returning it. but still logically. And even from a business stand point(profit) wouldn't you want some thing to actually work in the most basic ways? I mean aren't most people buying these and plugging usb drives into them? what do I know right Apple? Well I do know this. An 8gb usb thumb drive should be able to be power by my iPad . And nobody needs to be an engineer to figure that out.

    Horrible

    • Written by from Magnolia

    Don't waste your money on this. I specifically bought this to put movies on a USB thumb drive to put into this so I could transfer movies over to my new ipad Air2. All the thumb drives I use say "too much power", i even used a hard drive with its own power source plugged into the wall and I didn't get the "too much power" instead, nothing popped up and yes the hard drive is formatted to mac's with .mp4's but none of the .mp4's showed up. Everything works fine on my macbook pro and figured, cool, i'll get an ipad so I can have movies with me anywhere I go, but not with this Lightning to USB Camera Adapter. RETURNING IT.

    Connects a Yeti microphone to an iPhone 5 perfectly

    • Written by from Wilmette

    Bought this to connect a Blue Yeti microphone to an iPhone 5. Clearly the Yeti doesn't draw too much power because it connects and works flawlessly. Bear in mind that when you plug the mic into your iPhone it will become both your input and your output, so if you want to hear things from your iPhone with the mic connected you'll have to plug a set of headphones into the Yeti.

    For this application, no separate powered USB hub required, so very convenient. And incidentally, the Yeti is a fabulous microphone.

    Lightning camera adapter... Let me use this with my iPhone 6 plus! NOW!!!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    We may have to stop calling these people geniuses. I simply want to edit photos from my SLR camera on my huge iPhone. The adapter works fine with my iPad but is not supported on my brand new iPhone 6 plus. Apple stop trying to out think your frustrated user base. Let us do creative things with your great software and subpar hardware. I Insist this will be an easy upgrade and you should comply ASAP...

    Surprise, surprise.

    • Written by from Kirtland

    After reading the many complaints about the Apple Lightening to USB Camera Adapter and knowing that I'd be working with an oldish Canon Powershot A540 to a new iPad Mini 3 running iOS 8.1.2, and finding no mention of PTP in my camera manuals, although "PictBridge" is specified, I was prepared to be disappointed with my purchase, but I had to try. Well, surprise, surprise, the transfer was amazing! In only a few minutes more than 300 photos with metadata were transferred to my iPad and deleted from my camera. Thank you Apple.

    Annoying limitations!

    • Written by from Astoria

    Why does apple always make things work for one product but not another. I wanted to use this with my iPhone 6 plus, which is fast enough to import photos, but "the connected device is not supported"! Why not apple? I have a beautiful massive iPhone 6 plus that I want to view and edit them on, but I can't. This forces me to bring another device with me when traveling. Unacceptable!

    Useless adaptor!!

    • Written by from LAKE SAINT LOUIS

    Bought this adaptor to download videos directly from my GoPro Hero. But when I use the adaptor to connect the the GoPro I get an error "the attached accessory uses too much power." It's hard to believe that Apple would limit the use of my iPad Air by not allowing what should be a simple, but very valuable, connection to my GoPro. I was able to conect it to a Android tablet with no problem. So I would recommend replacing your iPad with an Android tablet. I did!!
