SD Card Reader to Micro SD Port Adaptor

G'day all. Whilst on my travels, I need an adaptor for the Surface Pro 4 to read my camera standard sd card through the micro sd port. I do not want to use a USB adaptor, as my prefered Lightroom workflow allows auto backup to a portable USB hard drive, which is plugged into the only USB port available. The MS multi-port assessories are too large and heavy for travel purposes. Can anyone recommend a simple adaptor suported by the Pro 4?

Welcome to the forum

If you can find one that meets your needs it will be compatible. That's not the problem. I can't see an adapter that meets your needs. You may want to consider a USB hub. Unfortunately that would also be bulky.

You could .... buy a good quality micro sd of the size you need. These usually come with an adapter that allows the micro sd to fit into a standard sd card slot. Put this combo into your camera and extract the micro when needed to go into the SP4.
I do this with a 128gb in one of my cameras (which takes an sd only)..... works perfectly including video.
Caution .... don't go cheap

Thanks for your comments. Ebay sellers are offering micro sd to sd card extention cables. I attach a picture. Does anyone have experience of these adaptors. I don't want to damage the surface pro4.
