      I was waiting to see if this would solve my MIDI input problem. I have an Akai LPK-25 MIDI keyboard and an iPad 4 64GB. I wanted to play the soft synths. I had bought an off brand Camera connection kit from B&H for use with my iPad one and the LPK. It didn't work.

      I should have bought this a few months ago. Buy the Apple brand if you don't want problems with MIDI from an Akai LPK-25. That's my advice. Maybe I'll use it with other devices in the future. But for right now I'm quite happy that it solved my problem. I'm making music in iOS while I take care of my baby daughter on the couch. Pretty Cool!

      I bought this with high hopes. As an Apple fan, I have to admit this is mostly useless. Almost anything you want to use this for "draws too much power" and won't work. Forget it if you don't want to drag a usb powered hub around. Sorry Apple this is a big dissapointmet.

          Expensive for what it does, but it's all we got!

          It probably costs no more than three bucks to make!

              Like many Apple products you are paying a premium just to have that Apple symbol on the box. However , it works for it's intended purpose. I wish the cord was a bit longer, hence the four stars.

                Comments about Apple Lightning to USB Camera Adapter:

                For those of us who like to upload pictures from our digital cameras to our iPad this is the solution. In my case I like to upload images directly from my Canon 5d Mark II to my iPad 2 Mini's Photos app when traveling. To do so you also need a standard USB male to USB Mini B male cable to interface this adapter directly to the digital camera. Depending on what camera you have you might need a USB to USB Micro B male camera instead.

                The only negative thing I can say about this is the price. I use this to transfer my DSLR shots fire toy to my iPad. The quality if the item is great. It's small enough to put in your bag

                                        attaches well, works with D700 to upload photos. D4 would not upload to iPad and confirmed with Nikon that D4 is not compatible with iPad. Make sure your camera is compatible or it is a waste of money.

                                                      I was waiting to see if this would solve my MIDI input problem. I have an Akai LPK-25 MIDI keyboard and an iPad 4 64GB. I wanted to play the soft synths. I had bought an off brand Camera connection kit from B&H for use with my iPad one and the LPK. It didn't work.

                                                      I should have bought this a few months ago. Buy the Apple brand if you don't want problems with MIDI from an Akai LPK-25. That's my advice. Maybe I'll use it with other devices in the future. But for right now I'm quite happy that it solved my problem. I'm making music in iOS while I take care of my baby daughter on the couch. Pretty Cool!

                                                        I bought this adapter specifically to connect an Akai Professional LPK25 USB keyboard to my iPad Mini for use in Garage Band. Like all Apple adapters, it works flawlessly and is very high quality. I use my LPK25 keyboard to make music in Garage Band. Because the keyboard is USB powered, it requires no external power supply. This adapter supplies enough power from the iPad mini to allow the USB keyboard to work without issues. I haven't tried this setup with any other iPad models. Its fairly safe to assume it would also work with a 3rd gen iPad. This adapter is designed as a camera interface to transfer photos from a camera to a lightning connector-equipped iOS device. While I'm sure it works great for that intended purpose as well, I wanted to write a review for those who may be interested in using it to connect a small USB music keyboard to an iPad. Simply plug it in. No setup is required and it works with Garage Band immediately. For musicians on the go, this is the perfect setup. I highly recommend this adapter.

                                                        Purchased an ipad for the soul purpose of shring photos with family. I didn't want to mess around with i-tunes just to upload photos. Although that route would be cheaper. This allows me to upload photos without messing around with any software - failproof! I'm pretty sure you could find a cheaper (non apple) cable that does the same thing. This one is a bit pricey for what it is, you're paying for the brand name.
