Just curious what do ya'll use to view your pics? Wanna be able to look at em while at the ranch. I have nice digital camera but its too hard see in the screen when you got 5 guys wanting to look & 900pics to go thru on 3sd cards. Was thinking about laptop didn't wanna spend that kinda money just to look at pics. What are you guys using or do you just wait til you get home & down load em on the computer? Thanks for any advice or tips

Either take the laptop or just switch cards out and check when I get home.

I use my laptop. I like to be able to zoom in and look real close at the backgrounds of pictures.

All i do is insert the SD card download/delete pictures off the card. Re-insert and get the heck away from my feeder.

If you're going to buy a laptop specifically for this purpose only, just buy a card reader for $100.

Some else said they used those digital picture viewers. You can insert the card and then look. I don't think it's real easy to stop the display, since you have to set the display times for each frame. At least that's how mine is at home. They are from $30 to over $100.

Nah, you can scroll through the pictures as fast or slow as you want. Example of one:

Field Viewer

We just bring a laptop from home.

You could buy a laptop for this purpose for less than $200 probably.

Moultrie has a SD picture viewer for $120-150. I would be careful though, not having good luck with Moultrie products and customer service lately. The viewer is working, but sometimes you have to press button several times to get going, hopefully it doesn't get worse as its brand new.

Best thing you can do is use a Garmin Nuvi GPS or any that have the picture viewer built in (I think most Garmins if not all have it). I found this out last weekend and it works on Cuddebacks and WIldgame Innovations for sure becuase that is what I have and I believe it works on Moultries as well. I get to the stand switch cards and then look at the pics while I wait for the deer to show up. And best of all it fits in my pocket. Bottomline, save your money on the viewers and get one if you don't already have one because it doubles as navigation.

Digital picture viewers or those picture frames that take the digital cards work well and they are cheap. Pop the card in and set it on the counter while we are eating and everyone can see the pictures. I bought it for about $40.00 a couple of seasons ago.

Went with my uncle to check on his stuff the other day and he busted out his Ipad2. Was a great way to look at the picks and has a ton of other uses as well.

It is on my go get list. Been wanting one for reading books on anyways.

Apple makes a SD card reader that fits in the charge port on the bottom. Got one for my iPad.

TxBuck, I bought a $70 DVD player that has a SD chip slot in the back of it for this purpose. I had no desire to buy a $200+ laptop or one of those $150 viewers the cam Mfgrs sell with a 2" screen. The DVD player has a 7" screen and guess what............I can also watch DVDs on it. happy3

Yah, the card reader for the IPad2 works GREAT and it's a SUPER viewer. Just got mine a week ago and love it! Never had any Mac product before, but it's really easy to operate. So easy the damned thing doesn't even come with an instruction manual, which I wasn't too sure about to begin with. Never had an IPhone, which would have helped. Getting the new one in a week or two. Not a fix for a cheap viewer though, but maybe somethin for a wish list item. Pretty powerful little machine.

I have the iPad and attachment... I also have a sprint datacard/ WiFi thingy... So I can also email photos out as I go.

Only thing I don't like is with the iPad you have to upload all pics first...then delete.



Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

if you have a tv at your lease, you can by a cord at radio shack that will hook a digital camera to theyellow/red/white rc cables directly to the tv and then everyone can see easily. about $10
