I've used an ipad mini for the past several years and love it, I can view the pics then transfer them to my phone or if I am connected to wifi I can email them. The only complaint is that you have to import all of the pics before you can enlarge them. My buddy uses a samsung galaxy tab 3 or 4 and he likes it, if something happens to my ipad I will go back with the samsung.

I purchased several new cameras this year and for some reason I am having issues viewing pics from my new moultrie cameras, moultrie isn't any help and told me to use a compter or their viewer.. I wouldn't have bought an ipad because I have no other use for one but when i bought my truck the bank offered me $100 cash or an ipad mini.. I went with the Ipad...

We bought a 19" TV for our lease trailer that has a USB slot. We use a thumb drive size chip reader and view the pics on the TV when we get back to camp.

On the wildgame can you save them to the unit or just look at them?

We just bought the Wildgame viewer and I can't stand it. Way too small to see any good detail, can't click through very quickly like you can on a laptop. When there is 2000+ pics it's going to take you 2 hours, and I'm afraid it's going to wear out the NEXT button as it clicks very loud now. We may sell it or return it and go back to using the laptop. Nice thing is, from the laptop we can send pics to our phones so we can have photos of the bucks in the field.

I also have the Wildgame Innovations card viewer. It serves it's purpose and that's all. I recommend a laptop or a digital camera to view pics on. You can't save pics to the device and it is hard to zoom in on pics. Also the screen scratches easy. Hard to see images in the daylight with the viewer. I have to find a shady spot to look at the viewer when I'm checking my cameras. Not a good viewer....😞

I use an old lap top. I have a 17 cameras so I needed a lot of memory. I have tried IPads and viewers but when you have upwards of 10k on a 32 Gig card.

I run a pc cable to the camp TV and show all members the decent photos after I cull the bad.

I use SDmicro cards with SD card adapters in my cameras and I use a 7" Android tablet(cost $50) with an SDmicro slot to view the pictures in the field.

I use a Toshiba Laptop to view my SD Cards. On making the rounds to swap out SD Cards can view the cards and save pics for further use. The hand held viewers don't show good details on all game, but the Laptop let you magnify any part of pic.

Yep, Sandisk also makes a plug in for your TV, complete with remote. Makes watching pics easy and it comes with zoom capability. I don't ever look at pics in the field, just switch out so cards and get out of there.

I bought inexpensive 7-in-1 model on Amazon for an Android phone for ~$12 earlier in the fall..works like a charm.

In the field, I save photos to phone, erase card and reinsert into camera. I'll use it tomorrow when I pull cameras and feeder for the season.

I got an iPad for Christmas, so I'll look into one for it too.

I intended on using one of these, but it was just as much to buy a 2nd card and swap them. Plus this way, I'm in and out quick.

My wife got me a cheap little ad card reader that plugs into my phone. Works great so far, I can go through the pics just as fast as I can on the computer. Works great for being at the property
