Can you save photos from K-70 directly to flash drive?

Hi, I travel and love to take lots of pictures. Is it possible to save photos directly from a K-70 to a flash drive without first saving to a computer? Thanks. Joyce Keay

The camera doesn't transfer images to external devices, the external device has to import them from the camera (sd card). So no, unless you have a powered flash drive that can import from an external source. I don't know if those exist. You could also just get multiple sd cards and switch them out.

The device in that link has an SD slot, so just plug in your SD card., , but putting a 256 GB card in the second card slot of a K-3, K-3II or K-1 would do the same thing, with no fuss at all.

I have an inexpensive Verbatim wireless media streamer that has a SD card slot and a USB port that I use with my iPad for editing JPGs on the go, using Snapseed. It's easy to plug in both the camera SD card and a portable 1TB hard drive and copy from one to the other using the dedicated app. The app's a little clunky but does the job. For simple copying jobs. You can use the app on an iPhone too.
