Here's a storage process that is working for me...
If you have a decent laptop, with a burner, I found this program called Allway Sync (free personal use download or PRO version for $20). Here's the scenario:
- Insert CF into a PCMCIA Adapter, plug into laptop
- Allways Sync detects the card and syncs up to a location on the laptop
- Allways Sync also syncs up to an external 40 GB so I have 2 copies
- When my next card is full, switch cards, format in camera and go
I know this is not as portable as some solutions, but for weddings and other larger events, I usually have power on hand, or an inverter in my car that will run the laptop.
Cheap and quick if you have the laptop already. And I can view and edit on the laptop!
Just another idea to confuse you further.
