So I'm preparing for a wildlife photo trip into Costa Rica in several weeks. One of the things I keep seeing while looking for photography tips both here and on other places on the web is to bring your laptop along and edit your photos while on location. This seems like a great idea, but I wondering if there is any real advantage to doing so?
I suppose the one benefit is that you can look at your photos the same day and see if there is anything you can improve on, shutter speed, focus, etc, and then work on that the next day while you still have the opportunity to do so.
The only drawback I can see is having to carry laptop, charger, portable hard drive for photo storage and the card reader. Altogether that should be less than 5 lbs of added weight, but flying with luggage restrictions I want to leave a little room to spare.
