Anyone successfully use non-Apple camera connection kits for lightning?
No, only Apple work fine.
It's one thing to use a generic CCK to transfer photos from a camera or for a USB keyboard but it's another thing when you are relying on glitch free audio and consistent performance.
Always go with the genuine Apple CCK for audio applications. With generic CCKs, what you save in initial up front costs you end up spending on Excedrin anyways.
