Straight from camera using EOS Utility. "Keep It Simple S-----" is most definitely my motto.

Agree. What I do find interesting is early on the argument for using card readers was people snagging the camera to PC cable at their workstation and the camera falling to the floor. Then tethering came along and that seems to be OK. I was at an evening ballon festival where people had cameras on tripods, tethered to a tablet six feet away and the area heavy with foot traffic like kids running around. I wonder how many of those people used the falling camera off the desk as an argument for a reader 5 years ago?

Keep It Simple indeed.

Slip card into card-reader and the images are automatically imported into Lightroom.
What could be simpler?

Either solution is so simple that it really doesn't matter which you choose.

taking out the SD memory from the camera body and put it in the laptop
but sometime i put the SD memory in Apple reader to import the photos to the iPad then i transfer them to the iPhone by AirDrop
i have CF memory card but i dont like it because I'm afraid of bending pins inside the body of the camera , it's better to keep it inside the camera and transfer the photos by other ways instead of taking it out
the SD memory easy to take it out no pins inside

I never took the time to dig into this, but the USB cable connected to my 5D3 was simply TERRIBLE! It was slow, and half the time would not download all of the pictures, it would randomly skip pictures. I bought a cheap card reader from best buy, and it transfers the photos way faster and never skips.

Likewise

The only time I have removed the SD card from the camera was when I went from a 16GB to a 32GB card. And the next time it gets removed from the camera will either be when it fails or I decide to go to a 64GB card

I don't even do this. Card reader to cull my images and copy/paste images into a folder on my desktop. Do what I need to do by way of post processing, rename folder with date, subject, camera etc then move folder to where I keep my images and to a back up external hard drive.

All my computers have an SD card reader built in. I use that.

Yes, every PC I've bought in the last five years has an SD card slot.

wow no one so far uses the USB connected to the camera... (well i do but have a reader now). was just curious how many people do this....

I do, but I don't shoot hundreds of images at a session (maybe twenty-odd or so), so even though cable transfer from the camera is slower than a reader, the time it takes is little different from the process of: remove the card from camera, insert into reader, replace the CF card in camera.

My Canon USB cable is permanently plugged into a USB port and hangs down the front of the computer onto the desk where the camera sits during download. Not very inconvenient.

If I had hundreds of image at a session, I'd probably use the reader, however I spent too many years with film (44) to break the habit of thinking, planning, composing, shooting when each shot cost something and I only had 36 potential images per roll (sometimes only 24) and had to reload.

Another point; readers do fail, but I've never heard of a USB port failing (and besides, I have six of them on my machine).

I agree, you really have to be ham fisted or just not paying attention to bend pins. But that applies to the USB cable as well. I have never heard of anyone wearing out a USB socket. Now if you are clumsy, it's not too hard to snag the cable and knock the camera off when connected via usb.

Apparently there were more than a few ham-fisted participants on POTN five or six years ago because I read quite a few posts that went: "help, I bent the pins in my XXXD".

If felt sorry for the Poor bougers.

I'm no whiz but I do believe if you go on line the method of choice is via a card reader. My thinking
is why subject the camera and battery to unnecessary wear and tear. I've been using CF cards for at
least fourteen years have at least twenty cards and no bent pins,as pointed out ham-fisted could be
part of the problem.
