Transfer photos direct from camera to iphone?
Sorry if this has been covered before but can you transfer photos direct from a camera (or SD card) onto an iphone, then have them sync onto your mac when you get home? just thinking it would be nice to be able to store and view them on the phone while you're out and about and then have an automatic sync (by wifi?) once you're near your computerfur bearing, drunk, prancing eurosnob

There is/was something like that for the reg. iPods... Naturally, no WiFi sync... Though, not even sure if the iPhone supports WiFi sync.
You could prolly just use the EyeFi SD-cards to get the WiFi autosync (or upload).
And yes, uploading the cards to iPhone on travels would be sweet...
If you find something, drop me a line as well.Originally Posted by RootSkier

email the photo to yourself, then open the email.
While viewing the email just touch the photo. Hold your finger on the photo until the save menu pops up.
Or, get the "airshare" app and possibly link your phone to your via wifi?
Your saved photos will automatically be downloaded when you connect your phone to your computer.

There are a couple battery powered external harddrive cases out now that will pull images off of a card and display them, but nothing will transmit via WiFi. The closest thing to that is having the EyeFi cards.
Using Canon's external media adapter (for whatever cameras it works for) it might be possible to dump photos via USB, but the iPhone would probable have to be jailbroken and then have some modified firmware in order to save the photos.
Apple did have the USB camera connector for a while that works with some older iPods, but nothing current. I didn't sell very well, and neither did any of the other variations of the theme, so Apple got rid of the ability.
With the processor and other chips inside the iPhone it is more than possible for something to work, but Apple isn't interested in making it happen, and the hackers are largely too busy with other projects to fool around with USB and other non WiFi networking methods. Also there is the whole problem that many of the people that seem to have that level of programing skill and are working on jailbroken iPhones don't travel anywhere without their computer, so they always have something to download too.

Not How do I "transfer photos direct from iphone camera?"
If what your sayings the case the question is still how do you get your photos off your camera not camera phone on to your phone to then email to your iphone and then why would you have a phone and an iphone?
Most Digital cameras don't have WiFi, yet, there are a few exceptions such as a Leica that uploads directly to Picasa Photo Albums.I ski therefore I am.

do it now.
that is all.

BUMPing an old thread. Anything better than Eye-Fi cards out there yet for going from camera to iphone in the field? One of my cameras uses SD cards so the eye-fi would be fine for that, but are there any that will work for cameras using compact flash cards as well?"Yes, what we do is dangerous, but I'm lucky - I know how to do it. It's changed the way we look at mountains. For me it would be crazy to live in a big city and work on Wall Street. That's insane. I would never do that. I'm living the dream. It's the greatest job ever."

Eye-Fi + SD to Compact Flash adapter.

To wi-fi synch you'd need something running iTunes, right? Unless you have a jail broken phone, then you could run it like an external HD and synch over wifi I bet.You're not a poet, just a drunk with a pen.

Why the fuck don't high end cameras have built in WiFi? Hell, my invisible dog fence does, fer chrissakes!

any other phone would have a micro sd card slot, and you could just put the card in the camera with an adapter. bwahahahaha.No longer stuck.

Never used it as I don't have an iPhone, but an eyeFi card can be run in "direct" mode which sets up an ad hoc wireless connection between the eyeFi card & your iPhone, and will allow you to transfer pics direct to your iPhone.
Even without ever having used that functionality, if your camera uses an SD card for storage, eyeFi is the tits.
I just have to turn the camera on when I get home, and the pictures are automatically xfer'd from the SD card to my desktop PC.Going where the wind don't blow so strange

I personally just use third party software, photobucket normally with phone pics, or if I want to store them in the cloud I use dropbox. Samsung already has direct sync software with their cameras and phones, guess apple has to play catch up
