Hello, I am sorry to post a newbie question but what is the most convenient way to get the images off of a SD card onto your computer.

I read that you can connect the drone directly to a computer and transfer that way. I haven't connected it yet, in fact, I have to look for the USB port on the drone first... Today I went to a local park and flew two batteries. Was nervous as these were my maiden voyages. I saw thumbnail quality images on my phone, downloaded jpgs of two of them into my phone but that is as far as I have gotten. With my camera (Canon 5D2 and 1D2 ) I shoot RAW and pull the cards and hook into a card reader. I am guessing unless there is an alternative suggestion that that is what most here do.

Thanks for any comments or suggestions. I will read and appreciate all...

Great information. I was wondering if I could format the card. This being my first attempt, I only shot JPG and no video as I have a slow card, with a faster card to come. Am focusing on learning how to drive the thing with the photography coming later. Will try a website feature here and see if I can insert one of the photos I shot. EDIT - It worked. this image is the 10th one shot on the new camera, unedited JPG.

RE formatting card: I have had cameras that seem to prefer to be formatted in the camera, any issues with the Mavic and formatting sensitivity?
