Can I transfer pictures from my digital camera to my Amazon kindle fire without using a PC

The short answer is no, you possibly can’t. I’m sorry, but that’s just how it is.

However, all hope is not lost in spite of this dreadful news. There are 2 major avenues you can go down.

The very first is to simply email the photos to yourself and acquire them to your Kindle. This method will work fine if you only need a number of holiday snaps or pictures of your little nephew’s birthday or whatever, but its not much use for the large amount of pictures.

The next method is a little more refined. Using a hard drive, you can transfer photos comparatively quickly from one device to another, it will allow you to transfer a better amount of photos but will likely take much less time.

The best choice, I think, is likely the second, especially if you search out the “eye-Fi” SD card, fitting with most up-to-date cameras (though, as always, it's surely best to double check). Sime, of The Digital Photography Educate blog, was obviously impressed. In his review, he said,

“With the Eye-Fi X2 card, I could upload full res photos from my NEX 5 to my iPhone and then do what I wanted with them [Instagram / Facebook / Flickr etc] when you’re using the X2 card, you can connect the camera directly to your iPhone / iPad without having to use a Wifi router etc… You can also use the Eye-Fi app on your phone [iPhone and Android] to upload your images to your computer / Flickr etc. Yep – works, works well”.

He then gave an individual account of that Eye-Fi’s usefulness, that I’ve re-printed here.

“My wife and I went to the zoo with our almost-three year old a couple of weeks back and I had a look through her images afterwards, realising that there were images from her camera dating back to… well, when I gave her the camera! She’s currently using a 32GB SDHC card in there, and just leaves everything on the card! When I asked if she had copied any on to her computer, I was told “That’s too hard / I don’t have time / Where’s the cable” (Yes, a combo of the three, I didn’t press for details…;) So – I cunningly swapped out the existing card for the Eye-Fi card, loaded the app on her Macbook and added it to start when her computer starts, but to hide in the background (This is an option in the application) so basically, the camera connects to her laptop whenever it can and copies the photographs across – they are there, ready to use. Guess who won ‘awesome technical husband of the week award?’ (Obviously a lot of you are tech savvy, but well… )”

Never let it be said that I disregard an issue of yours devoid of making a suggestion of my own.

If you’ll permit me a brief tangent, there is a line in one of those beloved books of my teen years ‘Have Nice Day: A Tale of Blood & Sweatsocks’ by Mick Foley (which is a immense book about life typically, although you aren’t a wrestling fan) where Mick says, “I’d always felt that it was not good enough to shoot something down – It was best to have a solution”. Take that and run with it, people.
