    Is there a device for connecting a USB stick to an SD in port in a camera
    thereby allowing direct storage and or contact from Camera to USB stick>?

    No, and why would you want to do this? You could copy to a USB stick via a computer.
    There are dedicated portable hard drives that can read and store the content of memory cards. People use them when travelling.

    You might be interested in "tethered shooting" where camera is controlled from the computer (via USB cable) and images are recorded onto the computer's storage systems. I believe that the facility is available on all Canon DSLRs and on some via wi-fi or bluetooth

    Nikon produce two ways of doing this:
    1. Camera Control Pro software run on a computer and connected via USB cable or, where available, Wi-Fi. It is relatively expensive.
    2. A phone App called WMU, Wireless Mobile Utility, that can connect to a Wi-Fi enabled camera and perform some of the same functions.

    I have both but neither is ideal for various reasons, not least that the wireless transmitters for the D3 and D4 are ridiculously expensive. I can't remember whether the D3200 is wireless equipped, if it is WMU might be useful.

    To answer the original question, no such device is available to my knowledge.
