This reviewer indicate the adapter is more than just something for cameras.

Kids, this is the real deal. People make fun of Apple and their overpriced dongles, but this thing is magic. No really, I can't think of another tiny piece of hardware that has so drastically expanded what I can do with a single port.

This dongle hides behind the name "Camera Adapter", as if it were a mere tool for camera enthusiasts. I don't care about cameras at all, I've used this to:

- Attach a USB keyboard for use with my iPad Pro
- Connect a Blue Yeti USB Microphone to my iPad and record vocals
- Attach a USB MIDI Controller which then seamlessly hooks into Garageband's Synth instruments
- Connect to a USB-to-Ethernet hub and download stuff to my iPhone/iPad over Ethernet
- Oh, by the way, that hub I mentioned has 3 USB ports on it, I can connect stuff to **all three of them** and download over Ethernet at the same time.
- And yeah, maybe I'll try it out with a camera someday when I'm done rocking out with all these other peripherals... I wonder if I could plug in an Electric-Guitar-to-USB adapter...

FYI, the pic appears to be the original(?) version. I grabbed the version with USB/Lightning so I could power the iPad while it stream music through an external usb DAC.



Apologies to the anonymous forum member affected by my previous sig pic. It was my personal pic of a country expressing great grief as their leader, one of the most recognized people in the world, lay on his deathbed 8 years ago, days before he died. Like a naif, I did not realize it was offensively political, I considered it an expression of deep emotion and a reminder of the mortal coil's nature; that we all, great and small, can only hope to make a difference in our short time here, no matter the personal cost.

I'll post another pic from my work in South Africa that is, hopefully, apolitical.

Perfect timing! My wife is learning to play the piano through an iPad app, and for full function, it needs this specific cable to plug the keyboard into.

Apple Lightning to USB 3 Adapter

IIRC, I got it little bit cheaper from someone else, like Amazon, Adorama, or B&H.

I've been wanting a couple of these for awhile, but had no idea of the additional features.

Plugging a keyboard into my iPads is great.

All the BT ports on my Logi are spoken for.

In for two!

Thank you, pRICE!





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

There's a different connector for that. Much pricier but it works great. Plug in a powered USB hub and plug in whatever you want to that. I bought all this kind of stuff figuring out how to live stream.
