- Being able to work with the Theta…directly from the phone or a tablet is great,…there's a lot I can do, it's a fast, easy workflow,…however, most of the time I also want to get the images…into my computer, for a few different reasons.…I might want to back the Theta up,…or I might want to clear everything off the Theta…so I can erase it, and keep shooting,…or, I might want to get something off…because I want to put it online somewhere…and it's easier for me to do that work on the computer.…Most importantly, I want to get images in here…so I can correct and edit them.…Now I could move images from the Theta…by first passing them to my phone wirelessly, like you saw,…and then transferring them into the computer…in any one of a number of different ways,…through a cable, through a WiFi connection, email, whatever.…
But fortunately, there is an easier way to do this,…which is to plug the Theta into the computer, using a cable.…There's a micro USB port on the bottom,…and with a micro USB cable,…I can just plug the thing right in,…
