Screen scraping onto a camera

Google maps on a camera

Wouldn’t it be cool if I could:

  1. take a rendered Web page
  2. convert it to JPEG
  3. upload it to my digital camera (wirelessly)

So I could view the page on my digital camera, which is usually very apt for viewing images… compared to my crap mobile phone.

Or it would be great to have a fecking usable web browser in a mobile phone that doesn’t cost a fortune.

Instead as you can see from the screenshot. I just took a picture of my X40’s screen. :)

To conclude ideally the Canon’s transfer interface needs improving. Sometimes when I manipulate a JPEG and put the SD card back into the camera, Canon seems to think the JPEG is now incompatible.
