K-5 and Galaxy

WOW...Just received a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 for Christmas and Love it.
Hoping I might get some suggestions for ways to use it with my K-5, apps and hopefully connectivity, control, view camera screen etc.

Cheers

I don't think there's any wireless tethering support, but you can certainly link things up with an eye-fi or other wi-fi card in the camera.

Thanks Adam.
So I checked ebay. Is this a genuine item and not a cheap knockoff ?

Watch it! the mobi version only works with tablets or smartphones.. Have in mind if you want to use it with a desktop or notebook later...

Really ???.....That's confusing.
I mean the idea is to put this card in the K-5 and transmit directly to any of my devices with wifi, eg my desktop, laptop or the Galaxy tab. Desktop and laptop are Win 7 and of course the Galaxy is Android.
Galaxy or laptop in the field or desktop at home.

Hi

Snapseed is a must have. Rest are adwares.

I am not sure if this video will help.


Cheers!

I too have a new Samsung Tab 3, I just love this thing, got a good deal on it at Frys, they say it is not the greatest tablet but so far after two months of owning it, i have absolutely no complaints, this thing is awesome. I too am interested in a good PP app....gonna check out Snapspeed.
I would also be interested in a way to wirelessly send images tommy Tab 3
