Geek Alert! Whoop! Whoop!
After a considerable delay due to a back order, I finally got my latest toy. It is a SD to Compact Flash card adapter.
My camera uses a Compact Flash card.
My smart phone uses an SD card.
I don’t wish to carry my laptop with me when traveling in order to read the camera’s Compact Flash card, and then download the pictures to a SD card just to upload the picture to the web with my smart phone. Especially since I have unlimited internet access with the phone. This card fits in my camera and writes directly to the SD card which the smart phone reads. I should then be able to upload pictures to the web while on vacation. Say, to a rally
This card was a little under $60. I saw cheaper cards, but the SD card stuck out proud of the adapter which meant that it wouldn’t fit into the camera. Google on SD-CF1 and Minolta. I picked a vendor from Amazon.com.
