I'm extremely impressed with the $50 Amazon Fire. I was checking out my brother's Fire and would buy one except for the issue of uploading (or at least viewing) photos from a camera to the Fire without a PC. I want to take it on vacation and look at my camera pics every night. From Googling, I'm getting mixed messages whether it works or not. I was pretty resigned to it not working and me needing to get a different tablet, when I noticed on my brother's Fire an icon called Photo Importer. It wasn't really an app; there was just a picture of a Fire attached to an OTG cable.

Has anyone actually succeeded in uploading photos from a camera to the Fire without a PC? Or viewing them on the Fire? With other tablets, you buy an OTG cable connecting the Fire to the camera. Thank you. If it does, I'm definitely getting one.
