    Great connector

    • Written by from Savannah

    This product is great for the new iPad I bought! I received the message "requires too much power" and fixed that problem real quick. I went on my camera and changed the charging option to off. After that it has been flawless! I am ready for Germany now!

    I bought this today to go with my iPad mini. Just posting here to confirm that it worked flawlessly between my 40D (shooting RAW) and my iPad mini. I'm now on the hunt for apps that will utilize this cable for tethered shooting or other cool things

    works on 5d mark II and some usb card readers

    • Written by from Boynton beach

    I purchased this to transfer my Raw images and jpeg's from my Canon 5D Mark II to my iPad 4 and it works Great, I also tried it with my Kodak A250 50 in 1 card reader I can plug my CF card in and it works as well, any photographer using his/her iPad for photo viewing and minor editing this cable is a must. The only issue I encountered is that it did not work with the Eye-fi card.

    Worked just as advertised!

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I went to the Apple Store to purchase the item. Upon returning home, I connected it to my iPad/Retina display and my Nikon D3 and it worked just as advertised. It's going to work out nicely in the field as I'm a Pro photographer and will no longer have to carry around my laptop to show images to my clients.

    I will simply make the connection and display my images within seconds. Sure beats attempting to show images via the 3 inch LCD screen on the back of my camera.

    Thanks Apple!

    works perfectly once I changed camera communication setting

    • Written by from boone

    A huge THANKS to the reviewer who suggested this - the adapter worked fine with my newish Powershot, but using my EOS 20D, which is pretty old, I got a message that the device was not supported. I was ready to send the adapter back, because I really need it for the EOS, my main camera- I am going to England this summer and am only taking my iPad Mini, not my laptop, so have to have some way to back up photos (losing photos due to a lost/damaged card, camera, etc would be beyond tragic)

    Then I read the review that suggested going to the camera's menu and changing the Communication setting from Normal to PTP. Tada!! Success - the pictures loaded right up, I am very happy, and the adapter does not have to go back to Apple.

    A must have device for iPad owners.

    • Written by from Tel aviv

    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!

    Compatible with Canon 7D

    • Written by from carbondale

    Works perfect with the Canon 7D. I just connect it to my iPad mini, turn on the camera, and it automatically uploads the files. I believe if you are shooting in RAW, it uses the jpeg generated by the camera. Fantastic!

    Perfect for my Canon 5D Mk II & iPad 4

    • Written by from Montreal

    Purchased the adapter today. Plugged it to my iPad 4th gen. 128 GB. Plugged my Canon 5D Mk II into the USB side with the camera's cable. Turned the camera on; magic! Thumbnails of all the photos on the card (~225 RAW) appeared in less than a minute, along with a button to transfer them all to the iPad and one to delete all (from the camera). You can also select individual photos for downloading/deletion.

    Downloaded all photos in about 10 min., which is reasonable for me. Then hooked my iPad to my desktop, selected the photos from Windows Explorer, took about 2-3 min. Then erased all photos from the iPad.

    The cycle for me is complete, since I intend on using my iPad as backup during my photography trips. I would then download the photos to my desktop upon my return.

    The photos can also be viewed on the iPad in a really decent quality.

    All this with no apps to download (at least for the iPad 4) and no errors for me.

    Highly recommended, especially if you have my combination of camera/tablet or similar.

    People need to be a little more knowledgeable before leaving negative remarks. You might need a powered hub for this device, check with the manufacturer of your device, not Apple. Works great on Samsung TL225 by e way.

    Great Way to Run my iPad into my DAC!

    • Written by from Fresno

    I'm using this dongle to connect the audio output of my iPad Mini to my PS Audio Digital Link III DAC, and thence to my high-end living room stereo. It worked instantly, sending bit-perfect signal to my DAC. Unfortunately, my DAC does not charge the iPad through the cable, but otherwise I am thrilled. This way I can bypass the DAC and the headphone amp in my iPad and get right to the juicy, er, bits. I'm very happy about this, particularly since it lets me run Eno's amazing Scape app in very high fidelity audio.

    Awesome for GarageBand

    • Written by from Calgary

    I haven't used this for cameras but I used it to record my guitar in GarageBand. I have a Peavey Vypyr 75 watt amp with a USB output for recording. I hooked the amp up to my iPad mini via the Lightning to USB adapter and it worked flawlessly!

    Works great on my Finepix XP60 Waterproof camera!

    • Written by from Pueblo

    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!

    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.

    This cable works flawlessly with my gear. I can import raw files from my Nikon cameras, and even import raw files from my Fuji X-Pro 1! From there I can take my photos into Photoshop Touch or Snapseed for a quick edit and send. The lightning connector makes pluging in dead simple. Well done.

    Worked Great With My iPad Air and Olympus OMD E-M5 Camera

    • Written by from El Dorado

    Worked exactly as advertised. I was able to download both still images and movies in .mov format from the Camera to my iPad Air without a hitch. The SD card in the camera stays in the camera during this procedure and original copies of the images are retained on the SD card even after copying them to the iPad.
