"Best Practice for short term storage/backup"


US
          

This is in reference to travel photography where I will be away from my desktop for 2-3 weeks:

I currently am using two cards in my D7000. Card #1 is 16 GB and set for NEF, card #2 is 8 GB and set for JPG.

I also travel with a 64 GB iPad set up for keywording and processing to Lightroom via Photosmith.

In the past, I've also copied my #1 (nef) card to a wolverine storage device on a daily basis.

I would like to "lighten" this process up a bit and am wondering, for prolonged in the field time, what is the best practice without employing a laptop.

Thanks -

How much storage capacity do you need?
The slickest system I have seen is the HyperDrive UDMA2
http://www.hypershop.com/HyperDrive-COLORSPACE-UDMA2-120GB-version-p/hdu2-120.htm

It can read cards directly, has Bluetooth connect to your iPad and has its own power and display with NEF Codec. You do not need a lap top but can sort, view, rename etc files without any external device. It is available with up to 1Tb of storage.

I have a 64 gig Ipad and that seems enough for me. Even if I upload a ton of photos I usually delete the losers so I stay fairly lean.
