    I'd be reluctant to storage 8GB worth of once in a lifetime photos on any portable media with no back up at all. Lose the camera on the plane on the way home and you lose the lot and the trip is not exactly like a day trip to Disneyland in terms of creature comforts.
    At the very least get an adapter for an iPod and transfer the images onto one of them or a portable storage drive that will allow you to copy from the CF card directly. At least if the back up drive is in another bag the chances of losing everything are greatly diminished.

    If you get desperate, shoot JPEG and just be careful of your exposures and white balance...ie chimp a lot.
    Ouch.

    CF cards are small. He can put 'em in a zip-lock bag (to keep them all together) in a zippered pocket on his person. Kinda hard to lose them that way. I have more confidence in flash memory than hard drives with moving parts...although I personally take a laptop and external drive to backup anyway, and keep the external drive on me instead.
    Ouch.

    Just to clarify... the he is a she.

    idnas = Sandi backwards.

    Thanks, all... and I'll be sure to keep my damage to a minimum at M.P. I'm really not a hooligan when I travel. And I don't litter.

    Oh so you're my age then.


    So, come here often? What's a lady like you doing in a place like this?
    Ouch.

    I could tell you but I wouldn't want you to get all pissy if it's the wrong brand

    Well, I'm really just a she, not a lady, per say.

    I'm here to annoy all the people who know what they're doing with silly questions like these. Mostly I just hang back and read, try to soak up some photog. how-to's and why-for's. Enjoy the photo galleries, too.
