Hi Everyone,

I am taking my canon 7D out for shooting video and stills and was wondering if anyone has a solution for a problem I have. When I am on the road I will not have my laptop with me until I get back to base.

Is there a solution for plugging in a compact flash in to a reader and then in to a firewire/usb drive and initiating a copy, without having a laptop.

I will have 8 memory cards with me but if these get full and I want to copy off material without having a laptop with me, how can I do it...?

thanks!

Stand alone data storage devices. Just one of the many brands and dozens of models available shown below.

Check B&H for "Stand Alone Data Storage". From $125 on up depending on the storage amount and features.

but that would mean he would have to take an iPad with him... thus defeating the purpose of not taking a laptop ;)

photobank seems to be a popular choice in the UK, which is where I am.

If anyone has used photobank or wolverine. Will it do a copy of everything jpeg, RAW, MOV (quicktime movie)

some people have used the epson 2000 reader which does not copy RAW

The Hyperdrive Album appears to be discontinued. Too bad because it looked like a great device.

The Wolverine example I posted above copies anything and everything. Most, if not all of the newer model stand-alone storage devices will work with RAW and movie files. I have an older off-brand storage device and it doesn't mention movie file capability but it works fine for this purpose.

After all, the technology used in these devices is no different than what you have in HD's or thumb drives now. They will store documents, images and anything else you transfer to them. Some may have transfer rates that are faster than others which may be why a RAW file didn't work in your epson 2000 but it should be ok.

I have a hyperdrive and can say I'm a big fan. The Hyperdrive Colorspace UDMA is really fast, and if you get the casing you can buy a 500gb laptop hard drive for 80$ and put it in yourself.

This is the only problem I see with this... "Rechargeable battery - copy up to 15GB on a single charge"

Forget the Photobank, old, slow and past it. The iPad Hyperdrive does look very nice, and you don't need to carry the iPad everywhere. It'll function as a CF card backup without one. But that's expensive.

If you don't feel the need to be able to view the images (and I can't really see the point of looking at them on a piddly little screen) then the NextoDI ND2700 (external link) should be top of your list. Around £180 for 500GB of fast backup and a battery life long enough to backup around 80GB on a single charge.

I own one of these and a Hyperdrive UDMA. Although the Hyperdrive is slightly faster at copying cards the ND2700 is a lot faster at getting them onto the PC thanks to eSATA. It's also a lot cheaper.

I have an old Digimate which is self powered (internal battery charged via mains or USB) and will suck the images off a memory card of almost any kind.
I don't use it that often these days, it is a few years old now and I believe only USB 1.1 so takes some time to transfer 4GB (but not longer than it would takes to fill another 4GB card with photos) ... There is a later version kicking around (digimate II) that is USB 2 I think.
You can buy them empty or with HDD's already in there and when I got mine they were quite cheap (not like buying an apply product) which is why I got one.

I saw this one on amazon. Sure is a good price for a basic backup device.

But 5 MB/s means it'll take 20 minutes to backup a paltry 6GB. The hyperdrive will do the same In 4 minutes. That really matters in a portable device when you may not be able to charge it every day, or when you need a card backed-up quickly so you can use it again.

Here's a review of the photo-cube:

Slow, not compatible with the latest card types ...

But its a great price.
