I came across a very interesting device called "blue sync" at compass point.
The device is actually a small 'thing' that accepts USB connections on both sides.
One side plugs to the camera, and the other side plugs to your portable storage (eg: 2.5inch HDD casing). It costs $68 there and I haven't seen it at SLS or east gear. Anyone know or seen something like this around that costs cheaper? It beats carrying a laptop just to download my pics on a holiday.
