Carole Lloyd Posted July 12, 2015 Share Posted July 12, 2015 Hi There's probably an answer to my question on the forum somewhere but I can't see where! So I'll risk boring everyone and ask again in the hope that some of you will be patient and reply. I'll be travelling UK and Europe for 11 weeks in August and wondered what everyone does to store their photos while on the road. It's been 10yrs since I've had an extended trip (usually I'm only away a couple of weeks) and the last time I carried an average sized laptop which served it's purpose but felt like a couple of bricks in my back pack. I have a netbook with 250GB of storage on it which I have used in the past but didn't really want to take it with me as I'm concerned with weight and convenience of travel - increasing age bows the back as well as the legs I also have an iPad mini which has 64GB of storage, as well as numerous portable HDD (500GB and 1TB). I've never uploaded to the Clouds as somehow I've never trusted them for my photos and thought it would take too long to upload the RAW files. I'm not sure how to get photos from the SD card/camera to the cloud anyway although I'm sure checking the camera manual would no doubt help in that area! I have considered buying the Western Digital wireless HDD with the SD slot but it's expensive and without a laptop I'm not going to be able to see if the photos are actually on it before reusing the SD cards. If it's only got a USB charger I'm not going to be able to charge it without the netbook anyway. It has mixed reviews on the internet ranging from slow wifi, complicated to set up and limited battery life to excellent. I've considered buying a heap of SD cards but I usually manage to fill at least one or two 16gb cards in a day so at that rate I'll need a bag full of them! Is there any easy, relatively cheap solution to the problem? Has any used the WD wireless HDD or should I resign myself to carrying the netbook just for storage Carole Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
