The brief answer is no, you can’t. I’m sad, but that is just the best way it is.
On the other hand, all hope is not lost regardless of this terrible news. There are 2 main avenues you can go down.
The very first is to easily email the photos to yourself and then acquire them to the Kindle. This method will work fine if you only need several holiday snaps or pictures of your little nephew’s birthday or what, but its not much use for a large amount of pictures.
The 2nd method is a little more refined. Using a hard drive, you can transfer photos moderately easily from one device to another, this may help you transfer a better amount of pictures but will likely take a lot less time.
The most suitable choice, I believe, is likely the second, especially when you seek out the “eye-Fi” SD card, compatible with most up-to-date cameras (although, as always, it’s surely best to double check). Sime, of The Digital Photography School site, was obviously impressed. In the review, he said,
“With the Eye-Fi X2 card, I could upload full res photos from my NEX 5 to my iPhone and then do what I wanted with them [Instagram / Facebook / Flickr etc] when you’re using the X2 card, you can connect the camera directly to your iPhone / iPad without having to use a Wifi router etc… You can also use the Eye-Fi app on your phone [iPhone and Android] to upload your images to your computer / Flickr etc. Yep – works, works well”.
He then gave an individual account of the Eye-Fi’s usefulness, which I’ve re-printed here.
“My wife and I went to the zoo with our almost-three year old a couple of weeks back and I had a look through her images afterwards, realising that there were images from her camera dating back to… well, when I gave her the camera! She’s currently using a 32GB SDHC card in there, and just leaves everything on the card! When I asked if she had copied any on to her computer, I was told “That’s too hard / I don’t have time / Where’s the cable” (Yes, a combo of the three, I didn’t press for details…;) So – I cunningly swapped out the existing card for the Eye-Fi card, loaded the app on her Macbook and added it to start when her computer starts, but to hide in the background (This is an option in the application) so basically, the camera connects to her laptop whenever it can and copies the photographs across – they are there, ready to use. Guess who won ‘awesome technical husband of the week award?’ (Obviously a lot of you are tech savvy, but well… )”
In no way let it be said that I disregard an issue of yours devoid of making a suggestion of my own.
You’ll permit me a brief tangent, there is a line in a single of those beloved books of my teenage years ‘Have a Nice Day: A Tale of Blood & Sweatsocks’ by Mick Foley (which is a great book about life generally, although you are not a wrestling fan) in which Mick says, “I had always felt that it was not good enough to shoot something down – It was best to have a answer”. Take that and work with it, reprobates.
