    so far, it's just the memory cards for me, unless I need to bring along a notebook.

    The poll has missed out an entire class of devices - the stand alone memory card to CD-R(W) (and now DVD - R(W) ) writers.

    I use a Apacer CP100 writer. And make TWO copies on seperate CDRs every time I dump a CF card.

    I don't trust those HD based devices - all my valuable photos bouncing around in my bag on ONE relatively fragile hard disk. No thanks.

    On longer trips i've posted the 2nd CDR dump disks home and kept one with me. Offsite backup :-)
