External storage devices

13 May 2009 - 01:46 AM

What is the current wisdom on external devices for storing RAW images separate from a computer?
I'm needing a second storage method (I already have a external FW drive) as a backup for my data storage.

I usually like to store my images on three separate devices while on a trip and am thinking about one of those devices that doesn't require a computer but can load my Canon RAW files from the CF card without a computer while oo a trip with limited access to power...

I think i need a 500Gb size or so.

How do I delete my user Account?

I'm giving up UW photography and moving on to more terrestrial pursuits.
Would really like to delete my WP account since I'll not be using it any longer.

Is this possible to do on a self-service basis or is it a moderator only function?

FS: Ring flash

07 December 2008 - 06:01 AM

$1200 including one S6 cable

Originally this was only available as part of a housing/flash combo but now it is available separately.

Custom built Ring Flash (from UK Germany) that does TTL on the Canon.
This is essentially a housed MR-14 EX flash.

The port mounts directly to a UK-Germany housing and I have no clue as to whether it will fit any others.

PM me if you are interested.

Using SDHC in CF cameras

17 November 2008 - 10:51 AM

I'm noticing that SDHC memory seems to be quite a bit cheaper than CF.

I'm wondering about the possibility of using a SDHC card like the 16Gb Sandisk Ultra II in my Canon 5D with some sort of a card adapter...
This card is around $90 and the same capacity Extreme III CF card is $150 and I'm contemplating buying a dozen cards so the difference is price is significant.

NDR: Video Cameras for Above the Sea

10 November 2008 - 05:22 AM

Since all the gear experts are here....

I'm kinda moving away from diving and doing more land stuff.
This means that instead of all my dive gear I have more opportunity to schlep camera gear ;)
I'm now looking for a reasonable Video rig suitable for travel (like safaris and stuff).

HD is not a requirement (but is always nice) and cost probably isn't too much of a concern either...but I'd like some opinions.

Were you to buy a camera that is available right now which one would you buy? Oh, nothing "Red" thank you!
