As cameras get smaller, the medium upon which the imagery is stored on must also get smaller. It is for this reason that the go-to storage format for many action cams and compact cameras are MicroSD cards.

Usually, when it comes time to offload these images onto a computer or mobile device, a converter is needed to turn the MicroSD card into a full-sized card. A new adapter from Lexar is looking to change that though with an adapter that lets you directly plug a MicroSD card into the Lightning connector of any comparable iOS device.

Aptly called the Lexar microSD Reader, this pocket-sized device will enable you to easily transfer photos and footage from cameras directly to your iOS device.

The advantage of this is that not only is a computer needed to sort through and edit footage or images captured on compact cameras or action cams, it can also be shared immediately with the wireless connectivity of iOS devices.

As for managing the files, you can either opt for Apple’s own means of organization or download any third party file management system from the app store, such as File Manager or FileApp.

The device is retailing for $30 on B&H. Head on over now to pick yours up.
