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. …

A must have device for iPad owners.
This product really works, specially after I found a solution for those flash drives not being accepted on the iPad because of the This product really works, specially after I found a solution for those flash drives not being accepted on the iPad because of their format type or high electric power demands. At first I had some problems connecting some of my flash drives to my iPad mini 2 retina IOS 7, using the Lightning to USB Camera Adapter, but then I found the solution. The flash drive has to formatted in one of the following formats: FAT32 , exFAT , HFS+. If your flash drive isn't recognized by the iPad, and it is FAT32, you have to format it to FAT32 using a special free tool called "USB Disk Storage Format Tool 1.0 Hiren". Just Google for it. I had a Sandisk 32gb FAT32 formatted flash drive, and the iPad didn't accept it, until I reformatted it to FAT32 with this tool. When I previously tried to format this flash drive with Windows 7 built in format tool to FAT32, the iPad didn't recognize the drive. Same goes for my Sandisk 8gb and 4gb flash drive. Note that FAT32 enables a max 4gb per single file size. Also note that for some large drives, you have to wait about 20 seconds until the device is being recognized, so be patient.
Regarding to the “Cannot Use Device: The connected USB device requires too much power.” I found that if the flash drive is connected to a simple USB hub, it solves the problem for some flash drives, even if the hub is not externally powered!!! Same goes for flash card readers: Most didn't work until plugged in thru the USB HUB.
Regarding the maximum drive size, note, that you can also connect a 500gb (!!) externally powered 2.5" hard drive ( That has two male USB connectors coming from it, one for power and one for data ), format it to FAT32 using 'MiniAide FAT32 Formatter' or to HFS+ using GParted on linux.
I also managed to connect my PC keyboard to the USB. Worked great.
Note: This kit is for iPads. It will not work on iPhones.
Note: Use a genuine camera connection kit, as the non genuine kit I bought worked only for few of my flash drives, and the genuine kit worked for almost all my devices! …

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