Does shutters still download photos to a disc? They did in the past for a cost.

I was going to post this tip, but since it doesn't help the OP, I didn't go down that path. Since the discussion has turned this way...
We have the Apple iPad camera connection kit. It goes on every trip we take, long with my iPad. I remove all music and most apps from my iPad to clear as much space as possible. Every night, my "job" is to back up and/or clear all camera memory cards (2 cameras + video camera) on to the iPad. The iPad then goes into the safe. The next night, repeat. Then when we return home, I get the fun (NOT!) task of transferring all pics and vids on to the hard drive at home.
The last part can be a pain if there's a hiccup, but it does work and I've transferred all successfully. We've done this for two cruises and two WDW trips. I take a LOT of pics and have a 64GB iPad. DH brings his iPad along as well in case we need it, which we did on our Alaskan cruise.
The peace of mind that our pictures are safely tucked away each day makes the extra work worth it. The iPad camera connection kit has two different plugs. It, along with a USB cable or the cable that came with your camera, or simply the memory card itself should work together. We have used ours with four different cameras over the years.
Yes they do... or should I say they did on the Fantasy back in July. They printed all the pictures as well as put them all on a cd.
FYI, DealExtreme and other Chinese sites sell these for less than $10, but you have to wait as long as a month to get them.
It's the lightning one too.
Need it right now? Apple.
I'm interested what happened after you noticed it missing? Did you report it right away? And what actions did the crew take (if any) to attempt to recover it? Many places on board have security cameras, there may have been something there.
That is absolutely terrible OP.
I can't imagine someone even thinking that way on a DC.
Oh well, Karma will come.
We were on the 3rd sailing of the Fantasy when my husbands sunglasses were stolen from the cubies at the Aquaduck. The cast member told him no glasses were allowed on the ride and to leave them there.
When we got off and went back they were gone. We checked with Guest Services everyday and no sign of them. Very disappointing!
I'm in denial that this happens with Disney. It's supposed to be magical people!
We bought our Apple Photo Connector from Walmart. So if you don't have an Apple store near you, check there. We love ours. The only downside is making the room on the iPad for all of the pictures to download. But it's a small price to pay for piece of mind .
So sorry about your camera getting stolen. I would be devestated.
If you have a label maker, put your last name and room number on your camera/electronics. If it gets lost, hopefully, altruism runs it's course.
The hardest part about a lost item besides honesty, is locating and reuniting it with it's owner.
Yea, but unfortunately...lost and stolen are two different things. If someone steals it, they won't care what your room number is...you're not getting it back.
True, however, my suggestion makes things easier if you have the time to do it and it does get picked up by an honest person.
Apparently Samsung makes a new camera that can automatically upload your pictures to a website immediately as you take them. I know with the Samsung phones you can already do this. If the camera get stolen at least you still have your pictures. Perhaps a solution for the future.
There are so many surveillance cameras everywhere today, you would almost think Disney could just pull up the footage check who did it and go and get it from them.
That's great if there is an internet connection for the upload to take place. I shudder at the cost and time necessary to do so on a cruise ship.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your view of such things), they aren't everywhere...especially on cruise ships.
We have a samsung galaxy 7" tab and the adapter so we can transfer pics to it. It was cheaper than the ipad at the time and smaller/lighter ( we bought it when we went to Japan when trying to pack light). We put highlights of our pics on each night since I take so many and could easy fill up the tab. But I'd have enough pics to not be too upset if something happened to the rest of them.
Op, I'm sorry your camera was stolen. What a lousy thing for someone to do.
The camera shop (whatever's it's called) should provide a service, charge a nominal fee if need be, to backup your photos/vids on your own USB should you desire.
It's just moving data, no special software.
The DIY way is to have a camera connector for your iOS device or use an android tablet that accepts SD cards for backup, next to bringing your own notebook.
That's a GREAT tip!!
I agree. With so many cameras looking alike, sometimes it can be difficult to know which one is yours.
I made and laminated a small tag with my name and cell phone number and tied it on to the camera strap. Think very small luggage tag. It could help.
I had a video camera lost at wdw and my homeowner insurance and the hotel I stayed at gave me money to buy a new one of cause I lost all what wa on video.If you but a new camera engrave you name and last four numbers of your SSI this way it would be hard for someone to take it to a pawn shop and sell it and also put you name and address in the camera bag and dont leave the camera unattented
