I’m having soon a trip to Scandinavia and I’m thinking what to buy to back up my pictures during my journey.
Apple iPad is with me too and 2 Transcend 32GB SHDC cards for Leica camera.
Any suggestions from your side? Shall I take an external 2.5" USB hard disk?
MPG: Assuming that only modest computing power is needed, but an excellent viewing experience for RAW or JPEG, I’d skip the iPad and take an Apple MacBook, that is, a MacBook with 512GB flash drive (SSD) internally. At about 2 pounds, it’s an excellent travel companion, a real computer able to handle raw files and with a nice Retina display.
A card reader for downloading camera cards to the MacBook, but be sure to get the Apple USB 3.0 Type-C Male to USB Type-A Female Adapter or Apple USB Type-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for compatibility with the USB-C port of the MacBook.
For extended usage, get an Anker 20100+ USB-C battery for powering the MacBook in the field.
