Good Evening.....Planning to go Korea in early April. Wanted to buy a portable hardisk (20GB capacity) and a 2GB Ultra II CF Card. Anybody got any recommendation for a reliable portable hardisk and CF Card? Appreciate your reply and thanks in advance.

how many pics would you be shooting? if you don't use the highest JPEG quality, you could squeeze a lot of pics on a 2GB (I could get ~1k pics on a 8MP DSLR) and save on an additional piece of gear.

hey dude,

alternatively you could rent the portable storage device if you are going to use the PSD for just once......

cheers......

Hi Mpenza,

Mostly use large fine image quality and may take some RAW pictures on my 20D. Will be going for a 8 days trip and the main purpose is to take pictures on Cherry Blossom in Korea. I do not think a 2GB CF card will be sufficient.

no problem :) I usually use large normal image quality on the 20D as I find little difference in the final output. but that's just me ;p

do note that battery do not last as long in cold weather, so take care of batteries for the portable harddisk.

have a great trip :)
