Thanks guys.

I use my iPad for field review and I'm looking at that function primarily.

By direct transfer I mean using a card reader or a card reader plugged into a USB port.
As far as I can tell, none of the Android devices have this setup but, if I'm wrong I'd love to hear it. I've talked to various sales persons who have uniformly either had no idea or have told me it can't be done.

I've looked at Android versions from Samsung, Asus and several others.

I'm thinking that a Windows tablet which has a full USB port might be an answer with an SD card reader.

Any other thoughts?

I'm using a Samsung Note 10.1 and Samsung Tab 2 7.0. In the pic is what I use to upload images (and all files) to my tablets. The device on the right is a SD card reader, the device on the left a USB adapter. I use a Belkin multicard reader for CF cards.

My tablets automatically recognise the adapters and will open up in "My Files". It's then a simple process of copying and pasting the files into any chosen folder. You can also make extra folders if you wish.

It takes seconds to transfer a RAW file out of my cameras onto my tablets. I use cr2- Thumbnailer to view and convert RAW images.

Perfect. Thanks Jurgen.

I don't want to get into an iOS vs Android argument, but my wife bought me the top of the range iPad 2 a couple of years back. Lovely tablet, but since owning a couple of Android tablets, I'd never go back to Apple.

But and a big but,, I still love my iPods. I have three.

I do that with my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (the older vintage, not the 2014). I use a Samsung "kit" that plugs into the port where the charger normally attached. The opposing end is an SD card slot and it came with a "micro" to SD adapter as well although I have never had need for that. Also in the "kit" is another plug which also goes into the power port, then allows a direct connection to my 60D with a USB cable, which is the way I use the device.

Both pieces, as I bought the kit are on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com …ard-Adapter/dp/B0051D3KMG (external link)) for $14. As an individual component that enables solely a USB device to be connected the device is described/shown at
http://www.samsung.com …bsubtype=other-multimedia (external link). That also is on the Best Buy website at $10 (clearance) http://www.bestbuy.com …18363393359&sku​Id=2837365 (external link).

There is an app, both iOS and Android, to calibrate the tablet screen. Go to
http://spyder.datacolo​r.com …olio-view/spyder-gallery/ (external link). There may be others as well.

Dunno about the Android version (my 'droid hasn't been out for several months) but the iOS version only displays calibrated images from within the Spyder app. All other image display / editing apps are unclaibrated.

Has anyone used a Dell Venue tablet? They seem to be on sale for around $230. They run Windows 8 Pro, which should be able to support most programs. You can also install a micro SD card, and a USB drive. It seems pretty nifty for the price. Of course, i have not done heavy research into this.

The venue 8 quad core looks like a solid deal for the price the 11 incher would be better but isn't available for the price you listed. I don't have much experience trying to run photoshop or lightroom from something that low spec'd but in theory it should be able to handle it. Good enough processor and just enough memory(according to adobes minimum specs for CS6)

My bet is that it would be sluggish but that you could do some light conversion/editing on there. Only problem would be space, which you could solve with a portable external drive

I couldn't get a micro SD card in a reader to work with my Gaxlaxy tablet to send photos but fortunately it works in a phone and I can send it to the tablet with Bluetooth

If you're not absolutely after a tablet, consider an ultrabook. I have a model with an IPS screen, and it has USB and a full SD slot. It will run for 6 hours, and has lots of internal storage.

Another idea. Thanks.
