Hey guys I'm trying to get an update on how folks are dealing with backups when travelling without a laptop. I'm thinking especially for the "newer" type cards: CFexpress especially. Going back what now seems like a lifetime, I had the excellent Nexto unit which packed up CF and SD without a fuss. I see Nexto have packed up; as has it seems, Gnarbox. Most things I can find on the internet are out of date or mainly apply to SD cards. So what the latest backup-without-a-laptop techniques and tools? I'd like to be able to backup a day's worth of images - say about 4-5 GB at a go - from an XQD or CFexpress card.
Hello, This is my first post on this site, and I hope that your experiences, expertise and suggestions can help me find what I need. I shoot all my pictures in RAW and generally also take some video footage. What I am looking for is the following: Tablet or laptop to backup and view the RAW (i.e., CR2) files Being able to install Lightroom would be great but is not 100% required, as long as I can at least view the images Having a USB port would be great for usign external hard drives, etc. The tablet/laptop should be light The item shouldn't cost more than $400-$500 I currently have the Microsoft Surface RT, which I HATE I am open to Chromebooks with an external drive (unless some have larger storage) but I can't seem to find out if they allow to view CR2 files Thank you very much in advance, I really appreciate your help. Best regards, Stefan
What fileformat is the best for backup and not get corrupted files over time? After seen: Trey's Variety Hour #79: Backing up your Photos - The Latest! Physical and cloud... I found out that Eric Cheng in this movie said that after time the data get corrupted. I'm starting to get many pictures in my backup and I can't afford to lose any of them. Perhaps Eric Cheng or any other can describe how to sett up a backup system that dos not get corrupted files over time? I'm using Mac with Lightroom.
