    Wanted to share something I started doing recently with you Guys and some of you might already do this...I started using the Micro-SD Cards with the adapter in My Trail cameras to Cut down on making several trips back and forth to the woods...When I arrive at my camera, I take the Micro-SD card from the adapter and put it in my Phone and whatever Pictures or Videos I want to save, I remove from my Micro-SD Card to My Phone and send to my Email to Save...I then re-Install the Micro-SD Card in the adapter, Place back in Camera, Format to Clear Card and Leave....Saves me time from Going back and forth switching out Cards and wasteing Gas Plus I have the Pics on my Phone to show my Friends at work,ETC.

    I do thing like that!
    I do something like that.....I have 2 cards for all my camers. I use my digital camera to view the pictures in the field. I bring the other card home with me and upload it to my computer. When I go in early in the dark to hunt. I switch the cards and after I'm up the tree I sit and review the pictures.
    A few years ago I did that and when I looked at the pictures a big bear was at the camera 15 minutes before I switched cards!!!! He must have heard me coming and bugged out.

    Check out amizon.com I bought 6 4gig sd cards for $5.25 each and with free shipping. I do just like viper said I have at least 2 cards for each camera. We still have 8 cameras out and we drive up to them and change the card and keep trucken and an check them on the couch at the house.

    iPad
    My wife and I recently bought an iPad and that's what I use to retrieve pictures from my cameras and clear the card before putting it back in the camera. Works great with an 8 1/2 by 11 picture that is much clearer.

    SD cards
    Yeah, I have done everything that you guys are doing by taking my Kodak Easy Share but at Times while I was viewing my Pics in the field, There would be only a few I cared to keep and share and couldn't unless I brought my card to the house and Uploaded them....By doing it the way I am Now, the Pictures are at the house before I am and waiting for me in Email...Think of this...Some of you know that I just had My brother Build me this New Computer..I sent him my Old one and he said it had TONS of crap on it from This Site LOL, Ebay and Deer pictures...He said even though you (Think) you Delete ALL this Stuff permanently.. It Will ALWAYS be in the Computer somewhere and as Many Pictures that I had is the reason it got worse and worse...I crashed it several times and he said, It don't matter, That it's still using valuable space in the Computer.. He said that's the Reason the Child Molesters get their computers took away at the First Red Flag and people like my Brother can go in and see everything that was ever put on it since it came outta the Box!!!My Brother is a Class A Licensed Electrician and Has a Computer Building Web-Site also, so I trust him to steer me right...I know that since I quit uploading all the Nonsense Pictures every week from my Trail-Cams that my Computer stills ZOOOMs..For example, The last time I had 104 Videos on 1 of my my Cards...88 of them was Raccoons at night...If I would have uploaded all those Videos then that would have took space away from my new Computer even after I deleted them and Emptied the Recycle Bin But If your Happy with the way your doing it now, then don't change,Simple... Just thought I would share.
