I do not want to bring my computer on vacation. For me, the risk isn’t worth it and it’s more of a vacation without it. This presents an obstacle insofar as getting pictures from my Nikon D7000 to my phone is concerned.
Fortunately, I have a work-around.
The D7000 has two memory card slots. I can shoot the first card in raw and usually just use the second for back-up. Today I set the second to back-up in jpg small format (basic, is the setting) and thus ended up with one jpg and one raw of each image on two seperate cards.
Then I popped the micro SD card out of my phone and used the copy option in the playback menu to copy a selected file onto the SD card. A handy free android app called ES File Explorer lets me move, rename or delete files as needed. Then I can use the WordPress app to write entries like this and post pictures taken with my proper camera.
It’s clumsy, but the quality is far better. Or will be when I take the time to find non-canine subject matter and make something better than a test shot.
Saves me the risk of dropping my computer in the ocean, too.
