    Hi, I'm looking for a cheaper lightning camera connector to use with my new ipad 4. These things are usually all over eBay but I haven't found any? I've seen the USB ones for ipad 1-3 and the lightning adapter but no camera connectors?
    I mean £25-£30 from apple is a little steep for a cable so was hoping for a cheaper option.

    Anyone point me in the right direction?

    Not many third party suppliers have produced the cords yet, possibly because of the authentication chip in each lightning connector.

    Wow.......cool.
    Never even imaged it was anything more than a cable with a connector at each end.
    No wonder it costs what it does.

    Thanks for enlightening us that had no idea this was in place. :thumbs:
    I agree you answered the ops question for sure.

    Thanks all, I've seen the lightning dock adapters which allow you to plug in USB would this enable me to sync my digital camera

    Following on from above, I've seen a 5 in 1 device that syncs photo, hdmi, audio, card reader which works with iPad 1,2,3 but not 4 as there's no lightning connector. Would it be possible to attach the regular lightning dock adapter to the iPad 4 then attach the 5 in 1 device into that then sync my digital camera via USB or card reader?

    I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work.
