Although the photography feature on today’s iPhone is probably not inferior to digital cameras, and for ordinary users, that is enough. But for photographers, or those who like to take pictures on professional DSLRs, the problem they face lies in how to transfer the beautiful photos on the camera to the iPhone in a simple way.
Here are 5 ways you can transfer photos directly from your camera to your iPhone without having to use iTunes.
The easiest way to transfer photos from camera to iPhone is to use this adapter. First you just need to plug the USB cable into the camera and connect the USB end to the Adapter. Then, connect the Adapter to the iPhone via the Lightning port as usual.
After the connection is successful, the built-in photo viewer application on your iPhone will automatically start with a button to confirm the image transfer process. You click that button and then choose to move all photos or move each image you want.
It should be noted that you cannot use this method to upload reverse photos from your phone to your camera.
This device basically works like its brother above, but instead of connecting the camera directly to the iPhone, you will have to remove the SD memory card from the camera, plug it into a card reader. , and then plug the adapter into your iPhone’s Lightning port.
Today’s modern technology completely allows us to transmit data wirelessly with ease. The wireless adapter is one such device.
A good example is the Nikon WU-1a wireless mobile adapter in the illustration. When this device is plugged into your camera, it turns into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot that your iPhone can connect to. However, instead of allowing internet access, this adapter helps you transfer photos from the camera to the phone.
But you’ll have to install Nikon’s Wireless Mobile Utility app (Download at iTunes) first to transfer images. Once you have access to the app, you can optionally move the photos to other photo apps on your phone or share them via email or social media.
Canon also has a similar device: the W-E1 Wi-Fi Adapter.
There are many types of adapters manufactured by third parties that allow connecting the camera’s SD card to the iPhone. One of them is Leef iAccess (pictured).
First, you remove the SD card from the camera. Then connect your iPhone to the card reader, insert the SD card into the reader, and start transferring photos. There are some adapters that require you to install an additional transfer application. For example, Leef iAccess requires you to install the MobileMemory application.
Using cloud services is also a notable method. For iPhone users, it is impossible not to mention iCloud Photo Library. In addition, Dropbox and Google Photos are also worth using cloud storage applications. Basically, you still have to upload photos to the cloud, then install the above applications on your phone and then proceed to download photos to your device.
In general, this method is not simple and takes quite a bit of time compared to using an adapter, but if you are someone who appreciates the security of backing up photos in multiple locations – on SD card, in the cloud and on iPhone – then this is a great option.
If you’re using one of the two adapters listed at the top of the article and the photo switch doesn’t show up when you’ve connected them to your iPhone, try the following troubleshooting steps:
