Hello everyone, I'd just like to find out how everyone here, both professional and amateur, handle their CF cards either when they're out on a job or out traveling. I have 2 x 2GB CF cards and they're obviously not enough when i'm out on assignment - even if i shoot Fine JPEGs.
I usually bring my 17" laptop around, both on assignment (leave in the car) and when i'm traveling (leave in hotel) and when my CFs are full i bring them back and load them up. However i feel this is an inefficient way, as i may fill up the CFs while i'm on the road and not have enough space for critical shots. This is especially true when i'm shooting RAW all the time.
So i came up with a few solutions:
1) Nexto portable harddrive that has a dedicated CF card slot - ~600 SGD , 80GB
2) Epson P5000, same as above albeit more expensive with a 4" LCD viewing screen ~900SGD, 80GB
3) Kohjinsha - one of the new UMPCs, also with dedicated CF. Screen size is 7" ~1.4k, 80GB
4) Buy many many many CFs, or 2 x 8GB
All these are small enough to fit into a camera bag, even the UMPC. I use a crumpler 7 mil. The kohjinsha is very attractive as it has everything a laptop has. Wireless, bluetooth, CF, runs on windows vista etc. Imagine bringing that small beast for travelling!
Just like to know how everyone else does it. Thanks!
