    Hey everyone! I'm thinking of getting the z30 and I'm pretty much sold on it. I was just wondering if someone could test or confirm something in regards to usb hosting. I have an older dslr and I use a usb cable to the pc to transfer pictures off of it.(connects like a us key, no software needed) Would usb hosting on the Z30 allow me to transfer pictures from the camera to the phone provided I had the right cable? The camera is a canon 20D btw.

    Thanks

    The title of the thread should be USB hosting. Stupid auto correct

    I'm pretty sure that it would, as the camera usually fallsback to a USB mass storage device if there isn't any manufacturer-specific program on the computer. Unfortunately I don't have a Z30 to try it... : /

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking, I just wanted to post to the forums and see if anyone else had tried this yet

    you can also try mapping the phone as a drive & if i'm not mistaken , the Z30 has wifi->pc file sharing...

    Nah, the OP wants to use the Z30 'as the computer' to access (and probably upload) pics from his camera.
