| p.2 #7 · Suggestion for a portable memory card storage |
Let me say that usually I travel for about 3 weeks or so and I tried to make my destinations very important to me. I just returned from Iceland (weather was not the best for shooting but I managed even to shoot the Northern Lights. On my trip to Africa I didn't see carrying any type of back up workflow.
I was camping during the 2 weeks safari so that was not an option. On the other hand, when I travel to less dramatic destinations then I carry less CF cards if I was taking my SLR.
But I have to be very honest, for the past few years I'm relying more and more on small point and shoot that shoots RAW. I either take the G9 or the new Lumix 5. They are very convenient sp when going to developing countries they don't know any better that they are high-end cameras.
Also, I wanted to clarify that I'm not borrowing or lending cards from anyone. I don't think I'd like to take that responsibility.
In reference to a suggestion that someone made about using a larger CF cards and not having to fill it all. I don't think that I'd like to add another tracking thing in my mind when traveling, and besides who would have that type of control to take out the card when the card is half full.
For my trip in April, I was going to take the Lumix 5 but since I'll be going to shoot some architecture stuff I am thinking taking my SLR and the Lumix 5 will be for walking around. I used the SLR in Africa only to shoot during the Safaris, but as soon as I was done with it I used my Lumix.
Since I don't shoot sports, and I'm not a happy trigger guy I don't think the card speed its a big issue for me. However, I do like to take extra cards in order to be safe.
The other suggestion made about transferring the images from the CF cards to a memory stick, that's not an option. "I'm not carrying a notebook period".
