recently my company bought 10 digital cameras for our work use.

 

however, all the sets did not come with the USB transfer cable. (mini usb type)

 

so i emailed the manufacturer and a lady called me today.

 

she told me that due to overwhelming feedback from consumers, they no longer ship their digital cameras with the usb cables.

 

and the feedback was that consumers preferred to open up the battery cover and remove the sdcard and then download the pics using their computer or card reader, rather than plugging the usb cable between their computer and camera.

 

so what is your preferred way of d/l your digital camera pics ?

 

i told her that if i were to do that, i will be changing cameras very often as the battery cover will break or come loose more frequent too !

What brand ? I thought the cable should be quite standard.

 

But to your question. I'm like those customers, prefer to take out the SD card and slot it in the built in card reader. Faster transfer. Despite my preference, I still feel the cable should be standard as sometimes we need to update firmware.

I have at least 10 of those cables lying around. Hardly use. Very cheap to buy one also.

 

Me also take out SD card to transfer pictures because card reader transfer faster than from cam.

take out the card and download is faster than connecting cable to the camera.

I prefer wifi transfer. Wireless.

 

Can download photos to phone. Use phone to remote control camera. Wirelessly connects to laptop or PC.

I don't like to take out the SD card. So prefer to use USB cable transfer. Now the cam I download or view the most is the car dashcam. Take photos usually use hp.

Maybe that's also why the SPF took so long to access the hp last time?

I prefer to take the SD card out to transfer. Faster. Through the cable, always got to install drivers and then the transfer always seem slower also.

 

The cover won't spoil so easily la. My uncle who does wedding photography changes the cards and batteries a few times during each event. The cameras still last 2-3 years easily.

The USB cable connections aren't standard for all cameras.

My latest camera Casio ??? has a different connection to the two Canon and one Fuji which have the same connection.

 

I don't have a card reader.

I didn't know that consumers have such a strong urge to feedback or complain if cam maker includes USB cable or more accessories in their standard packing? :XD:

For me and most people, we will just chuck away if not using. Nobody will take the trouble to feedback on those extra accessories and parts.

 

 

recently my company bought 10 digital cameras for our work use.

 

however, all the sets did not come with the USB transfer cable. (mini usb type)

 

so i emailed the manufacturer and a lady called me today.

takeout card and copy... faster.

 

provided if one is transferring alot of pics lah .... for me i take pics for my shpts ... maybe 3 or 5 each time ... so its actually more troublesome to open and close the battery cover every time also.

 

so with the cable, its just a 5 sec thing to transfer 5 to 10 pics ... 

 

the usb port does have a rubber cover .... but its ok even if the rubber cover is dislodged coz (actually i pull out mine to get it out of the way and for faster access) it does not affect the use much. but opening and closing the battery cover very often causes more wear and tear and when the covers cannot close properly, the batteries will come loose and then, another paperweight.
