    XE-1 - possible to connect to tablet?

    Hi

    Does anyone know whether it is possible to connect an android tablet to an XE1 so you can use it like a TV monitor?

    I know tethered or remote control is not possible but what about playback? It would be useful to be able to attach my 7inch tablet to my tripod and playback through the tablet as if it were a TV. My tablet is a Kobo Arc (nominally an e-reader but actually just an android jellybean tablet). It has a micro usb connector.

    Thanks for any help

    Not 100% sure if it will work with your tablet, but look into the Eye-Fi SD cards.

    Yes. I went down the eyefi route. It works fine, just a little sluggishly.

    Yeah, with file sizes constantly increasing and wifi technology remaining static it gets worse with each new camera. The convenience of no wires is great but the wait required can be a total pain sometimes.
