OTG Cable backup?
« on: December 17, 2013, 09:52:04 PM »
With ML having a File Explorer feature, would it possible to be able to use a OTG cable used on Android devices to backup the cameras memory card to an USB stick/device? We all know the rule of carrying more than one card, but say for instance one died or one was full and not backed up on a computer, Plug in the OTG cable with a USB stick, copy the contents over to the USB, format the card and carry on? The OTG cable is a great thing to own when owning a Android device and as there so cheap i could see it been a good little add on to the ML functions.

Cheers  :)

Get the DSLR Controller app and then you can do it.

Doesn't work with every camera or phone though, read the FAQs and try the suggested app for testing before buying.

Works like a charm on my 550D and Nexus 5
Canon EOS 550D / Canon EF-S 10-22mm 1:3,5-4,5 USM / Canon EF-S 18-55 mm 3.5-5.6 IS / Canon EF-S 55-250mm 4,0-5,6 IS II / Canon EF 50mm 1:1.8 II / Canon Speedlite 430EX II

Use that alot! never knew it had that function, but also found that Nexus Media Importer also allows this. Thanks for replying though.
