Re: Uploading pictures

Thanks for getting back to me. I have a Fuji X10 and I am going travelling. I would like to get the pictures from my camera tdirectly to my Playbook. Someone on the forum has alreadtyadvised that I would need to upload my pictures on to a PC and then transfer to the Playbook. The problem is I will not be travelling with a laptop. So I was wondering if there was a more firect way to transfer the pictures directly to the Playbook.

Re: Uploading pictures

the PlayBook's media content can be accessed in read/write mode, using samba.

So if your camera is able to connect to a samba disk through the wifi network, you will be able to upload your pictures from the camera to the PlayBook.
