Help needed downloading photographs please

posted December 4th, 2016
I have a CANONSX700 HS camera and a Samsung Galaxy tablette. Is there any way I can load the photographs from card onto my tablette please?

Thankyou for the link. I now know that my camera does not have blue tooth so sadly the app they offer ihas no compatability. Thank you for your kind words.

@pennystot I email photos to my mom and then download to her tablet and mine. Only way I know of. Gmail allows for large quantities to be sent at one time.

I copy from my SD card to my laptop and then share them to my phone via DropBox - (so helpful for when I want to edit the photos with apps that are on my phone).

@pennystot Hmmm I'd struggle too - is there an SD card reader you that you can connect to you tablet via a cable or aren't there any cable ports on your tablet? (Sorry don't have one so not sure if it has any...)

Hi, try an eBay search for "USB OTG", which stands for USB "on the go". It is an adaptor that plugs into the micro USB socket on your tablet, and gives you a full size USB socket on the other end. You should then be able to plug your card reader to the full size USB socket, and get at the photos using a file manager utility. Something like http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-in1-Male-to-Female-Micro-USB-2-0-Power-Charging-Host-OTG-Hub-Cable-Adapter-USA-/331998216942.

Or, you could just get a dedicated reader: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/White-Micro-USB-OTG-to-USB-2-0-Adapter-SD-Micro-SD-Card-Reader-Writer-32GB-/131848286651?hash=item1eb2c531bb:g:d68AAOSwaB5XjYmy

Note that I haven't used any of this myself, but I would expect it to work just fine.

Before I had a camera with built in wifi, I used my RavPower FileHub to transfer pictures from an SD card to my iPad. I believe there is an android equivalent of their app. You plug the card in and connect the tablet to it via its own wifi. https://www.amazon.co.uk/RAVPower-FileHub-3000mAh-Internal-Battery/dp/B00AQUMZRA/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1480978867&sr=8-2
They are handy little gadgets too. I still use it as a battery backup to charge up my phone on long journeys without access to power. :)

Wow that looks very useful if a bit technical! Will read the instructions carefully. Thankyou for your response

Yay! Success! I've temporarily solved the problem by buying a micro SDCARD in a full size outer. Tis a bit fiddle but very cheap. Will save up for the powerhub! Thanks everyone.
