Digital camera that can load onto a flash drive?
I've been using a Sony Mavica at my tradeshows that allows me to take photos and give the floppy to the customer. Now, I want take photos and be able to give a USB flash drive to the customer instead..

Is there a camera that you plug a flash drive and have photos automatically stored on there?..

Most cameras are firewire to USB, not USB to USB. As far as I know you would have to upload the pictures to a computer, then save them to your Flash Drive..

Might be time to upgrade camera's also. How old is your camera?Debbie..

I don't know of a camera that works directly with a flash dive, but you can always just give the customer the memory card. You wouldn't have a copy, but I don't think you did with the Mavica and the floppy either. An SD card and a flash drive are about th same price anyway..

No camera that I know of can transfer directly to a USB drive. One problem would be the plug/socket for the USB drive. Cameras use a mini/micro version of the connector, not the same as that found on a PC or a USB drive..

You would most likely need a laptop to transfer the images to, than from the laptop to a USB drive..

From what I've read, one of them has to be the "brains" of the outfit. When the camera is connected to the computer, the computer is the "brains" (has the software to read the camera). When the flash drive is connected to the computer, same thing. Camera to flash drive- neither has the ability to transfer the data. They do make larger, portable hard drives that you can download a camera to, but that wasn't the question.JonGive me something to shoot..

DSHarned gave you the correct answer. Get a new camera that uses SD cards. Buy a bunch of small SD cards. They are cheaper than flash drives! The only problem with this is that you customers will need a relatively new computer that has the 4 media slots...or a flash media reader box, which can be found for about $15..

I have a vague recollection of reading of a device that can read a card and transfer it to another. Can't recall the thing at all..

I'd suggest you have a look at portable photo storage devices - it might have been one of those..

You could certainly use a laptop, maybe a PDA ? .

Thanks for the response..

Yes, the Sony Mavica is quite an old model; but it's so cheap to give a floppy to a customer that has photos of my product on it; it's easy to followup with them..

Given them an SD card would be too expensive, and some customers don't have SD drives as an easy access..

The search goes on I guess, something I can give to a customer that costs about 0.50/each - $2.00/each but holds photos easily......

It's also completely useless, my last three computers didn't come with a floppy as standard equipment..

Uuuh, you were ready to give out USB flash drives, which are the same price as small SD cards or even more. I would say that some customers don't have floppy drivers too, probably more than ones who don't have a memory card reader..

Yeah, give them your business card with a link to your website where you will host the photos...

Are you taking photos that are specific to each potential customer or are you copying the same photos?.

There are stand alone devices that copy to a CD and also other portable CD copiers plus boxes that allow transfer USB to USB without a computer. If you are at an exhibition that could all be battery run and CDs are cheap and universal..

With a bit of planning you could use a CD writer on a notebook PC and download other demo files - all this onto a preprinted CD with your company title on it..
