I am getting ready to tour Europe and I want to take lots of pictures. My camera has an SD media port. Is my only solution to buy lots of SD cards? Is there some kind of portable storgae device i can get that I can use to download my pictures after a day's shooting?

You need a portable disk drive with card reader and a copy function.

This is a link to some test of this kind of device:

I have a X'S-Drive VP-2030 with a 30 Gbytes disk. It copies a 128 Mbytes card in 2 minutes to the hard disk. When back from holiday you copy everything to your computer via the USB. Last holiday I took 2000 shots for a diskspace of 3 GBytes. I use the X drive as backup device for my shots.

Now you can choose some models with MP3 player, image viewer...

Hope it helps,

Check out my review of the original Vosonic XS-Drive:


I will also be reviewing 3 more portable storage devices during January 2005...

I think the new IPOD photo can read DIRECTLY from your camera with the Belkin adapter. And the PHOTOS look great on it. Small travel size compared to the other stuff out there.
