Just like the title says. I'm tired of hauling a lap top that I know how to use half the time. I've looked at the viewers they sell at academy and don't see $80 worth. I saw some iPhone jacks that plug into the charging port and allow you to plug the sd card into it and view pictures that way. What's everyone's thoughts or what do y'all use?

We just swap out the chip and take it back to camp. We have a 19" TV with USB port and a USB chip reader the size of a thumb drive in the trailer. That I what we view the pictures on.

I use my camera in the field (if you have one), then back to camp and use lap top for larger viewings.

I've been looking at the ones on Amazon that plug into the power outlet on your phone. I'm kinda looking for something small like that but I'm not sure how they work or if the work all that wells

My brother bought an adapter that plugs into the bottom of his phone. It works, but it's pretty slow to move from pic to pic. If you've got a couple hundred pics, it takes a while. Other than that, he's been happy with it.

I bought the handheld wild game innovations and I like it well. The screen is a little dark so hard to see at times but took it to Missouri and it worked well.

This does not work, in some cases, for those who have game cameras that do not save the images in a DCIM directory. My hunting partner had this issue and could not figure out why his camera sometimes worked and sometimes didn't work for reading cameras. When I checked the game cameras, I discovered that his camera would not read only specific game cameras and the reason why was the directory issue. That was the only difference.

I have an old digital camera that doesn't care. It will find all of the images on the SD card, regardless of the directory structure/naming.

For Android phones, they need to have OTG or USB HOST capability. Apparently the Samsung Galaxy S4 (mine, old phone) and S6 did not have these capabilities. The S7 (what I have now) certainly does.

I use ES File Explorer to go through my images on the external card reader. It works very well and is quick.
