I don't think I'd want to carry around a hard drive when on holiday.
If a local internet cafe let you transfer files from a camera card or the usb connected camera to their computer you could then upload the images as e-mail attachments to your self to be opened back home -- or to the free storage provided by some e-mail providers or the image sites like Photobucket.
I suspect the simplest solution, though, is to buy the 4gig cards
MY girlfriend & I are planning a 6 week trip to tour Ireland.
I know I will be taking a zillion pictures on my digital camera (which has a 4g card )during that time frame so I am concerned abt backing up my pictures on occaision, say once a week.
I really don't want to bring a computer since mine is rather heavy and bulky,although if I am convinced its nessasary then I will bring it along grugingly.It does have a webcam.
I plan to use internet cafes for email.
How could I back up my pics while traveling? Do internet cafes allow you to backup pics to flash drives and other USB solutions (such as external HD). Should I buy a bunch of 4 gig cards?
I would greatly appreciate any suggestions.
