So Chris J, who runs a hiking group I frequent, came up with the solution to: how to get pictures from my point-and-shoot onto the interwebs with just a smartphone and no laptop with me. Buy a microSD with an SD card adapter, put that in the point-and-shoot, transfer the microSD card into the smartphone and upload via 3G or Wi-Fi.
It's not the most elegant system for the camping days as the transfer with grimy, sweaty, or cold fingers might not be easy. But I don't have to take any cables or hunt for internet cafes. The one thing missing: auto-downsizing. I'd like to be able to take and store pics in 10M or 6M but upload to Blogger in a much lower res/smaller file. I'll play with the software after I'm done cleaning the above mess.
