I'd say uploading to my PC as well, from the memory card

But isn't the computer making the request? If you're uploading images, you're transferring them into the memory card.

Actually, it's a sideload.

Quote:
Sideloading is a term used in Internet culture, similar to "upload" and "download", but in reference to the process of transferring data between two local devices, in particular between a computer and a mobile device such as a cellphone, smartphone, PDA, or portable media player.

Sideloading typically refers to media file transfer to a mobile device via USB, Bluetooth or by writing directly to a memory card for insertion into the mobile device.

I poked around and I don't see where I can. You should be able to though.

I have heard both and I think both are technically correct; it depends on which way you view it. However, I would say that uploading is definitely the most used and accepted. This probably has to do with the fact that the word "download" is almost always associated with the word "internet". Since the "camera" != "internet", people use "upload" and not "download"

I dunno about you guys but I use the force to transfer mine, works great, takes only a few seconds and I don't even have to remove the memory card from my camera....


BTW, I usually say I'm downloading them to my computer.
