p.1 #1 · Portable photo storage options


I'm looking for a portable storage option that can back up from CF or SD cards with a color screen and that can read RAW images.

I'm looking for 250 Go or more capacity.

What are the options out there today ?

I've come across the Jobo Giga Vu Sonic, but is there anything else out there ?

Thanks

Mark

At those price points why not use a laptop? I use a laptop and an external drive. That way I have two copies of each image. Also for me 250GB is too small.

Depending on what you need the laptop to do they can be pretty cheap.

That's what I think I'm going to do...

I was looking for ultra portability, but as I already have a Macbook Air I'll take that and buy and external hard drive

Be certain to get a drive that is usb3 compatible. You want those files to move quickly.

I have 4 Seagate Momentus 750 drives in my laptops (my HP laptop holds 2 hard drives). They are awesome and super fast.

I put one Seagate in a $29 USB enclosure and take it everywhere I go.

Copy the files onto the portable drive.

Given that you can't hook a disk drive directly to the camera, I assume you're using a laptop or netbook to do the copying?

So, not really that portable, and not what the OP was asking for

I have been using a Hyperdrive Colorspace for a few years now. It has a decent screen and you can view jpegs as well as RAW files with it. I think mine is the 320GB model. It is about the same size as my iPhone. Very handy while traveling or shooting events.
