Anything can crash, better to have 4x2G plus OTG HDD as backup on the move.
When you have OTG HDD to back up photos on the move, it is better to break out the memory into few smaller one, so that you can do backup of each card. If one big memory card, then everytime you do backup, it copy everything form the card to HDD all over again, it end up taking too long and too many duplicates.
1000+ photos? Wow... that's a lot to be shooting for 4GB. Do you shoot in RAW?I am not afraid of putting all eggs in one basket because I always do backup
My only complaint for large capacity is downloading is painfully slow
I am using a 4GB CF now and it easily fills 1000+ pictures, so it could take a few minutes just to do the transfer although the read speed of the CF and reader to be at around >15Mbps :sweat:
