I tried the wi fi on the D5300. It was spotty-sometimes it would work and sometimes it wouldn't. But what about older cameras that don't have wifi such as my D40? Can I get a SD card reader that connects to the phone with a cable? Or what about a wifi SD card?

Thanks Art. I don't have an I Phone. I have a LG K10 with a micro B USB connector.

Or what about this cable and the card reader I already have?

Bill, re the D5300... are you using SnapBridge to transfer photos?

 

That cable took like a HDMI to regular USB or v.v.???

I would try it. You couldnt hurt it.

All other options would require additional funds. Im not sure if any of the older wireless option of that time would work with the D40.

Thanks, Dennis.

Ok, maybe I'm not as tech savy as I would like to be, but I'm stumped by this.  I can understand why users would want to transfer pics from a phone or camera to external storage (computer, external drive, cloud storage, etc.)  However, why would one want to transfer pics from a camera to a phone?  Editing on a larger screen?  If so, why not transfer to an iPad or a computer, so that you can use a much larger screen, to show more detail?  Just askin'.  :)

I can imagine it for on-the-fly storage capacity. My Galaxy Note III has standard 32gb plus an extra 64gb SanDisk micro-sd storage card that I originally purchased for this exact purpose.

Haven't had the need to use it as yet but can imagine transfering between camera and phone via micro-USB cable.

I think for older dSLR's such as the D50 and D300 there is no wifi possibility unless a Wifi sd-card is involved. D300 having a CF card would need a CF to SD adapter card.

I want to transfer  images to my phone so I can email or post on Facebook and not have to wait until I get home and get them into the computer. I don't have a iPad or laptop and don't want to carry one around. I loaded an app in my phone that shrinks pics so I can shrink to a good size for posting and emailing.

Last week I got a cable that connects the card reader to the phone but the phone doesn't recognize the card or reader. So I have to try another way.

I'm not trying to be funny when I ask if there is an app for that?  I'm specifically thinking of a dedicated app that would allow you to transfer images. 

 

Bill, you that you installed an app that lets you shrink your images to a suitable size.  Is there a setting on that which would allow you to make that transfer?  :)

The WMU app. is not Snapbridge Bill... Snapbridge uses bluetooth and wifi and probably is no use to you(it will transfer 2megapixel images via bluetooth or full size via wifi). You might need an OTG (On The Go) cable... I think it feeds power from the phone to run your card reader...so an OTG cable then your micro-mini cable-card reader. OTG cables come with various connectors... but need to mention in their description that they are an OTG cable. You may also be able to 'tether' your camera via the OTG and USB cable to your phone and use 'DSLRdashboard' app.
