fwiw, the last event I shot I hired a guy to press the button on the "red carpet" entry photos. It was monkey work but the client paid the fees. The took 300-400 pics, sometimes just one pic, sometimes 3-5 of the group or various groups. There would have been no time to download the images to a USB drive, and the thought of inserting 300 USB drives into the computer and manually copying the images to them makes me want to pull my hair out. Not that I have any to pull.
