Backing Up Images

Jump to last reply

My trusty netbook is no longer trusty, so I’m looking for another option for backing-up images. Always looking to reduce schlep weight, I’m looking at tablets, with the Nexus 7 particularly in mind (I’m not an i-guy, so no -pads, -pods or –phones in my electronic armada). My reading says transferring images from camera (Canon 7D) to the Nexus can be done by connecting the camera’s usb cable to the tablet using an OTG cable, though it seems people’s experiences vary on how successful they actually are.

If anyone has experience with transferring pics directly from Canon DSLRs to a tablet, especially android types, I’d really appreciate hearing about it.

Thanks in advance.

Steve
