    Best deal would be to take the laptop, but leave it where you're staying. If there is internet access you can:

    a. Set up a remote connection with your home computer
    b. Log in from abroad and upload/download files

    At the end of each day, set it and let her rip overnight...beam your photos out of there to a place where they will be safe. That way no matter what happens...even if you lose all of your gear...your pictures are home waiting for you

    *Fast internet connection required. Above represents ideal scenario and may not be possible at all locations on Earth due to technical limitations such as file size, internet availability and time constraints.

    Hmmm.... not sure I want to lug the laptop along, but it's not out of the question. It *is* my home computer, by the way. I've only got the one.

    Personally, I'd just get more CF cards. Either that or buy a portable hard drive solution and pray that nothing happens to it.

    I was going to say with 83 posts you're not hanging back as much as you claim till I noticed you got there in 3 1/2 years

    Personally I'd go for retaining originals on CF and keeping a copy on some form of portable disk. Oh and they'd never leave my person during the trip (short of not showering with a hard disk, I'd draw the line at that).

    So, come here often? What's a lady like you doing in a place like this?
    CDI I just love the way blokes manage to treat females over the internet the same way they treat males.

    And yeah I know you were kidding.

    I shoot in RAW only, I have several 8G Sandisk Extreme IV cards.
    I get about 600 images or so per card.
    My advice is if you plan to shoot RAW + JPEG, get a bunch of cards!
