My brother got my Dad a trail cam to take pics of deer in his back yard. It’s this one.
Problem is, my Dad is old, he has no dexterity in his hands, and can’t operate a tablet or computer pretty much at all. We can show him the pics off the camera if someone comes over with a laptop and uses a USB to see the pics, but that’s less than ideal since we’re not in the habit of carrying around our laptops and a USB cable.
At home, my Dad has:
- an Amazon Fire 7.0
- A first-generation (really!) iPad
- an Amazon Echo Show
- a bunch of kids who all have iPhones that we could use to show him pics, if we could easily get them on the iPhone.
None of those have USB ports as far as I can tell, beyond the one the Fire has that I believe is a charging-only USB.
The Amazon Fire has a MicroSD card. The card in the camera is a standard SD card. If I could find an adapter, that might work, but it’s not ideal to have to open the camera, remove the card, then put it back. Also, hell if I can find an adapter that I can buy with confidence. Every one I find on Amazon gives me pause for one reason or another.
Is there any easy solution I’m overlooking? A dock for one of the tablets? Some magic thing I’m not thinking of? I’ve spent a few hours trying to find something and am coming up blank.
