    Hi guys!


    I'm going on a trip this friday and I won't be taking my MacBook.

    I will take my iPad instead and during the trip I'd like to collect photos and videos from my friends cameras.

    How can I transfer that stuff from their laptops to my iPad without using iTunes (both Mac & PC).


    Thanks a lot!

    Well, I've never been in that position, but if it were me, I would make a folder on their computer with all the stuff I wanted in it, and just copy them over using airsharing, or a file manager app that is similar. They just need to create a wireless network.

    Use dropbox, the new version will automatically upload photos and you should then have access to them.

    I will transfer a lot of data and I will not have access to internet.

    If there's no Internet then I imagine the only solution is the iPad Camera Connection Kit. Seems pretty straightforward - what am I missing?

    Yeah that seems the obvious route.
    Of course one could also use an app that transfers via WiFi, but then his/her friends would have to install a "client/server" app on the Mac.

    An app like that would work.

    I can take the client/server on a USB stick.

    Although OP's question is no longer timely, I want to reiterate that the Camera kit is a great option - it works so simply - unfortunately, everyone has to have SD cards.

    When transferring, choose NO when asked if you want to delete photos from camera card, so you can use your iPad as your form of backup.

    Internet service is expensive on cruise ships and phone service is not readily available - the camera kit is an excellent alternative.

    Ubidisk is a free Bluetooth transfer system. Definitely not the easiest to use for me but it was free and works if I ever need it and have no internet.

    Ha, just saw this thread was a little dusty!
