    if you have an ipod, you can get an adaptor that allows it to store pictures from the cards.

    If you want safe storage,

    use 2x media card and 2x portable storage


    For me , I tried 1x portable storage for a few tours and never fail for me.

    Most of my friends are not using CF cards. I would not be bring a laptop along. I would bring my 3 year old portable digital storage along as backup.

    Guess I would need to visit Sitex this Thursday.
    SI... SITEX? This Thursday?

    Hmm.... Need some XD H-cards.

    Get extra CF cards. No need to download and mess with computer and power. Battery life is shorter in cold weather and you may need to charge everynight. If possible, shoot in jpeg and raw as you may want to do post processing. I think the sun sets early and you could be in the shadow a lot so you may have more flexibility with raw.

    whatever it is, D70 prob wouldnt fail on you. Your concern is pretty much just the battery and mem cards.

    Advice is:

    2 spare batts.
    4 x 4 GB cards or 2 x 8GB

    I shoot raw with 2 x 4GB cards and a 40GB digimate. Enough for many many days if you don't shoot superb amounts and esp. if you're using JPEG.

    At the end of the day I end up with a lot of crap photos. I transfer the whole lot to portable HDD. Then I protect my best photos on the CF and delete the rest. If digimate fails I still have my best photos on CF. My 21 day trip easily amassed a few k photos. But eventually I only really liked 100-200.

    Suggest you invest a couple of hundred bucks to get an extra 2 CF cards. Especially at high altitudes, JPEG, can shoot till your hearts content.

    He is going to Tibet where the temperatures are extreme. You'll need extra camera batteries as batteries have a very much shorter life in extreme cold. 1 battery definitely not enough, prob more like 3 and more batteries will be needed.

    Also it is wise to back up the images you have taken just in case of anything happening.

    Good luck on your trip. Be prepared for altitude sickness.

    Went down Sitex yesterday and bought 2 x 4GB Sandisk CF Cards. Could not find other booths selling. Seems like a little less "interesting" this year.

    Anyway, I am bringing a Nikon D70S and a Nikon Coolpix 5200 with 2 batteries each. Memory wise, I have 11GB CF Card and 10GB SD Card plus a 20GB portable digital storage.

    Flight supposed to be at 10.40am. SQ called at 7.00am informing me that there would be a 1hour delay. So here I am updating.

    Ok guys, got to go. Take care all.
