Is there a way e.g. a reader that will allow me to view at least jpg's on a Smartphone? In my case a Samsung Note. If so I'd really appreciate a link.

Thanks but I'm not looking t operate/control the camera from the phone in this case, actually its for any camera. I want to pull the SD card out of the camera and view the pics on my smartphone. So I'm looking for a card reader that I can plug into the Samsung Note 2.

What about the eyefi. It works pretty well. Just don't expect to be able to have the photos instantly after capture. It takes about 8-10secs to start transfer from a "cold" start. But once started a batch of eg. 5 photos can transfer in about 10 -15 secs. Although transfer times may vary depending on the size of the photo. I use the eyefi in my 1dsmkii with Raw+ Jpegs. Jpegs are about 3-4 MB in size

That's a thought Tacoman, thanks. No need to transfer though. Just want to view the days shots when I pile up in the hammock / tent or motel room. I'm beginning to think I'm the only person who thinks there is utility or merit in reviewing pics on the smartphone.

I have a Samsung Note 2. The charging cord has a USB connector into an A/C plug on one end, and a connector to the phone on the other.

Just plug the USB into your PC, also insert your SD card into your PC, and use the PC operating system to copy your pics from the SD card to your smartphone. You should also have an exterior SD card in your smartphone to give you sufficient memory.

After copying. you can use your smartphone Gallery or file viewer to view as you please.

.... I don't do this for review, but I do copy pics to my phone that I want to have with me to show. It's like carrying an old-time wallet full of pics.

Fingers crossed it will work. I'll know in a couple of days.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I thought you were asking a software question. Yes, that adapter will work. The key phrase is the "OTG Host adapter". Should work fine.

not sure about the Samsung but to get similar OTG device to work on Google Nexus I needed to Root the Firmware to enable the appropriate apps to be installed and working... this was a first generation tablet though so things may be different on later models....

Any USB OTG adapter will allow any card reader to work on your Android device.

You know you can actually view your images on the canon remote app too?

But okay not the best solution since youve got a bunch of other cameras

The adapter arrived. Plugged it into the Note 2, took an SD card out of a 70D and moments later I was reviewing them on the phone. It's what I was after. the Note instantly saw the card/reader as an external device. I used Astro File Manager to open and view.
Right now I'm installing a 64gb micro-sd into the phone so push come to shove next week in Utah and I can back up to my phone.
I do think some of the phone apps for photo editing have come a long way, if I'd gotten a Samsun Mega I'd even cosider leaving the laptop at home.

My experience is exactly the same except as noted in red. Quick delivery, good price, works well ... +5 from me.

Friggin AMAZING !!

Because I'm an amateur and shoot only jpg, I only have about 56GB of photos ... plus about 12GB of music, plus about 1GB of personal data. As part of my backup program, I have a 128GB usb key to which I irregularly copy everything (my regular backups are to 2 external HD's).

I tried plugging that 128GB usb key into this adapter, and suddenly I have my entire laptop data viewable on my phone !!

That is so cool !! The phone file viewer handles everything just like my windows browser. :) :cool:

This opens a lot of possibilities besides just photo viewing.

EDIT: I tried plugging my 500GB Seagate HD, but all I got was flashing light on the HD - no recognition of the drive. It might have been trying to go through the whole drive before recognizing it.

EDIT 2: OK, on further study, this tech is about 1 year old ... I guess I should go back to reading online NerdNotes to keep up with what's going on. Oh well - I finally got it !
