On-the-road backup.
« on: June 02, 2018, 11:30:03 AM »

I need a way to back up photos while traveling. I have heard of units that consist of a self-contained hard disk with an integrated SD slot. Basically you insert an SD card and the unit automatically copies new files to the disk. Any recommendations?

I know the regular one it's more cost effective but I would get the the SSD version, more shock resilient and slightly faster.

Do you normally travel with a laptop or just carry cards? I usually have a MBP with me so I write in camera to both cards, MBP and external drive. If I only have the camera kit, Iíll carry enough cards so I wonít need to format until I return home.

I tend to go with the HyperDrive Colorspace UDMA3 with my own SSD:

You can also plug in a secondary drive and have the Colorspace back it self up to that other external drives.

You can also go with Gnarbox, their v1 is out and the v2 is on kickstarter https://www.gnarbox.com/collections/all
