What are you guys using to check your cameras in the field? I currently bring along an older digital camera I have that I plug the SD card into just to quickly review the pics. I have an iPhone 4 and thought it'd be great if someone I could use that, but not sure if that's possible, so how are you guys viewing your camera pictures while still afield?
I run most of my cameras in video mode. I haven't found a card reader yet that can handle that so I have 2 sets of cards for each camera. Occasionally in the Summer I will pack in a laptop and review them in the field so I can determine if I need to move them or not. But that is a pain.

I switch cards so I can download on my computer. I tag the card as where it was from and then compare the pics so I can pattern their movement. I do use a card reader to check the one by my stand in the morning.
I have a stealth cam viewer, don't like it after the 1st time using it. Have to zoom in closer to get a better look at the pictures and to watch the videos, to small of a screen and i have to get the viewer just right to see the screen basically tuck it inside my jacket to get rid of the glare, nah not for me it stays at home now, plus it eats up the batteries real quick. I pack my lap top with me when i go check the cameras. Not when its raining or snowing. I run video's on most of them and i can see much better vs that little viewer. The lap top much easier for me.
On my digital camera in the field to determine, if I want to move the cam then I exchange cards to view on my computer at home and make a folder for review or to compare bucks from different cameras to determine if I have the same buck in different locations.
I switch out the cards and check them while on stand with a Wild game innovations SD card reader. About $40 on sale and it is pretty neat. Great battery life and zoom on it. Not glamorous but detailed enough to know that your stand is either hot or cold.
