How to transmit photos from my digital camera to my Kindle fire hd without using a laptop?

The short answer is no, you possibly can’t. I’m sad, but that is just how it is.

However, all hope isn’t lost in spite of this dreadful news. There are a couple of major avenues you can go down.

The very first is to easily email the photos to yourself and then download them to the Kindle. This method works fine if you simply need a number of holiday snaps or pictures of your little nephew’s birthday or whatever, but its not much use for the large amount of pictures.

The second method is little more refined. With a hard drive, it is possible to transfer pictures relatively easily from one device to another, this may allow you to transfer a better quantity of pictures but will likely take a lot less time.

The best choice, Experts say, is probably the second, especially if you hunt down the “eye-Fi” SD card, compatible with most recent cameras (though, as always, it is certainly best to double check). Sime, of The Digital Photography School site, was obviously impressed. In the review, he said,

“With the Eye-Fi X2 card, I could upload full res photos from my NEX 5 to my iPhone and then do what I wanted with them [Instagram / Facebook / Flickr etc] when you’re using the X2 card, you can connect the camera directly to your iPhone / iPad without having to use a Wifi router etc… You can also use the Eye-Fi app on your phone [iPhone and Android] to upload your images to your computer / Flickr etc. Yep – works, works well”.

He then gave an individual account of that Eye-Fi’s usefulness, which I’ve re-printed below.

“My wife and I went to the zoo with our almost-three year old a couple of weeks back and I had a look through her images afterwards, realising that there were images from her camera dating back to… well, when I gave her the camera! She’s currently using a 32GB SDHC card in there, and just leaves everything on the card! When I asked if she had copied any on to her computer, I was told “That’s too hard / I don’t have time / Where’s the cable” (Yes, a combo of the three, I didn’t press for details…;) So – I cunningly swapped out the existing card for the Eye-Fi card, loaded the app on her Macbook and added it to start when her computer starts, but to hide in the background (This is an option in the application) so basically, the camera connects to her laptop whenever it can and copies the photographs across – they are there, ready to use. Guess who won ‘awesome technical husband of the week award?’ (Obviously a lot of you are tech savvy, but well… )”

Never let it be said that I disregard an issue of yours devoid of making a proposal of my own.

You’ll allow me a brief tangent, there is the line in one of those beloved books of my teen years ‘Have Nice Day: A Tale of Blood & Sweatsocks’ by Mick Foley (which is a great book about life in general, even if you aren’t a wrestling fan) that Mick says, “I’d always felt that it is not good enough to shoot something down – It was best to have a solution”. Take that and work with it, reprobates.
