How can I easily transfer photos from my Olympus Point & Shoot camera to my Android phone without a computer?

I am going to a camp/retreat with a group that I am a part of and it is not an appropriate setting to bring my computer. I will be bringing my Pantech Discover and my Olympus digital point & shoot camera. I am not familiar with the Pantech Discover as I am currently an iPhone user and the new Discover hasn’t even come in the mail yet. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can transfer the photos I take on my digital point & shoot camera to my Discover phone so I can send them to friends? Remember, I need to do this without using a computer. Thanks!

    Why not just take the pictures with your phone? The resolution is good and it eliminates the need to transfer them.

      That's actually what I'll probably end up doing. Thanks! (Way too

    Get an OTG cable like this one:, then use an USB SD card reader to transfer the files (pictures) from the camera's SD card to your phone. You would need to use a for explorer, but I would recommend either ES File Explorer, Astro File Explorer, or File Expert since these file explorers have more options.

      You are welcome. If not for this use, I would definitely get one just because, especially for under $10USD. You could always use it for quick and easy transfers to a flash drive, increase your storage through flash and portable drives, connect keyboards, mice, or wireless dongle for wireless keyboard and mouse, etc. There are many good uses for such a cable.
