CloudPic: a new KickStarter project....

Hi all,

I was cruising through PetaPixel and saw a blub about this KickStarter project that might interest you.

It is not specific to Pentax, but will work with all DSLR's if they have some sort of micro/mini usb port.

As I am a kx owner, something that could do what they claim would be great. One wish is that the phone could add GPS coordinates to the photos prior to uploading as I don't have that ability native to my camera.

The KickStarter project page link: CloudPic Mobile by Brad Hudes - Kickstarter

I hope I posted this to the correct section of these forums.

that's a very interesting project. Thanks for sharing! I could see this become quite awesome if combined with an iPad or - for a future version of this thing - with a notebook. No more "Did I get this picture or is it out of focus?".

Looks like a REALLY cool gadget. However I'm trying to decide if this is something I would actually use. I do agree with one comment however, the dongle needs some means to tuck up to the camera body instead of sticking straight out - be it an articulating USB connector or an optional short cable and Velcro patch, or some other bright idea.
