Topic - Getting photos from CF card on to a tablet

JinjaCoo - on 02 Oct 2013

Has anyone found a way to get photos from a CF card on to a tablet at all?

I bought a tablet with a mind to being able to do some photo work each day whilst on holiday rather than being hit with the 'chore' of doing it all afterwards, but my initial research has proven to be wrong. I looked at availability of connectors to allow a USB card reader to be connected to the device's non USB power / reader port. All fits well, but the tablet will not read from a device (card reader) which itself needs power. Okay, I tried then to read direct from the camera thinking it has a battery so must be powering itself and again no luck.

Camera is a Canoe EOS 350D with old style CF cards and is not bluetooth able or anything like that.
Tablet is a Samsung S2

Anyone know of a device which can deliver what I need? I did wonder about a wi-fi or bluetooth card reader but can't find one which reads CF cards.
