Ask the Expert: Storing Photos

 

I am going on a seven-day bus trip. I shoot a lot of photographs with my digicam. What do you suggest I should do to save the innumerable pictures I take while on the move?

There are several methods you can follow to ensure that you have enough storage space. One option could be to buy or borrow extra memory cards. You can also carry a laptop along. On the other hand, if you will have access to a computer at your destination, carry an external hard drive with you. As a final alternative, if you want to carry light and will not have access to any computer during your trip, it may be worthwhile to invest in a dedicated photo storage device like the Epson P-7000—these devices allow you to transfer and save pictures directly from the memory card, and also allow you to review them.
