    Canon EOS file transfer questions

    Canon EOS file transfer questions 11th Oct 19 at 9:53 PM
    Apologies in advance for what may be a long question.

    Situation is - we have a home in the US and are considering buying a second camera which we would leave there (canon eos as we know how to work it ) to avoid carrying our current kit backwards and forwards. I know it may seem frivolous and not at all money saving but it would make life easier for us

    We have a Samsung tablet at the US house which we use for web browsing etc when we are there (again to avoid carrying iPad etc).

    If we buy a second camera is there some way of uploading the photos from the camera to a website (or a free hosting service). Is the Samsung tablet where I could then access them back home in the UK, download, save to another device, print etc?

    Sorry if it’s a really basic question- at the moment I snap away happily on the existing Canon or my phone, upload to an ancient Acer netbook I have here in the UK and print or whatever from there. It would be nice not to have to drag all the camera kit every time we go to the house but I’d definitely want to be able to access the content from here.

    Advice welcome.

    Why not just take the sd card with you ? Oh and some cameras have wifi
    Edited again you could you a usb on to go cable perhaps and a usb card reader/adapter

    Jeez - taking the SD card (Iíd buy a new one), and then presumably inserting it into the Canon back here to download, hadnít even crossed my mind. Sometimes I over complicate things

    Thanks for a very simple solution!

    Make sure the canon you buy has wifi, then you can use the canon connect software to transfer to tablet.

    https://www.canon.co.uk/apps/canon-camera-connect/

    You can then use the canon gateway to upload and download your pics

    https://www.canon.co.uk/support/consumer_products/content/faq/?itemid=tcm:14-1309198

    or you can use google photos

    Yes many a way to skin a cat.....


    But if you value your pix consider the secure angle (such as sd card loss above)! BACKUP twice to different media locations!! Greatly increases chance of recovery if main means of storage is lost or fails!!!
