This is a brilliant little gadget. I've just bought one for my fujifilm camera & have found invaluable for easy tranfer of pictures. It is easy to use (no need to install any software/drivers) & compact - it also comes with an 'extension' lead so if your usb port isnt easy to access, then this helps. transfer rate was good & even better is that you dont need to connect your camera to your pc which saves on battery consumption. I was going to buy a power adapter for my camera (at a cost of £25, plus postage) but bought this instead - a lot cheaper & does the same job. My only niggle is that even though it does have a light on it (to let you know it's connected to pc), it doesnt flash to let you know its working - you have to make sure you follow windows instructions for disconnecting device, (i'm using Vista so its simply a 'click' to disconnect). If you need to transfer your pics to pc & dont want to waste camera battery, buy one of these.
