Depends on your needs.

Some people need to edit and share quickly, to keep their media stream active often, like on instagram.

If you're not looking to update quickly to a feed, then enjoy your trip, don't worry about editing.

A tablet or chromebook or something small and simple with an IPS panel display is a nice, light way, to simply review photos to see what you have before moving on for example. That can be useful if you have specific goals on your trip. I know a lot use ipad minis for this (LR app?).

I take a chromebook because I am a clunky tech user and don't care for touch-tablets. And I shoot RAW+JPG. I can review the JPG's quickly just to see what I have (better than the camera LCD). But I don't try to edit on location. I have no need to update a feed or media site on a daily basis.

Very best,

Where I'm going in Costa Rica, internet access will be very limited. So regular updates on my feed won't be feasible. Maybe in the evenings, if there is a good satellite signal for the internet at the lodge.

Even if the angle of the screen in consistent, would ambient light shining on the screen cause some changed to the colors possibly, particularly if those lights shine from different angles?

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.

Any thoughts?

What camera are you shooting with.
Since getting a 5D Mark III four years ago this Christmas, I record RAW to both the CF and SD cards. I now leave my old MacBook Pro at home. I then import into Lightroom to external drives upon return while on new 27" iMac Desktop. Calibrated with controlled lighting is consistent. If work must be turned in earlier, then I would bring laptop.


Canon 5D Mark III (x2), BG-E11 Grips, 7D (x2) BG-E7 Grips, Canon Lenses 16-35 f/4 L IS, 17-40 f/4 L, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 24-105 f/4 L IS, 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II, 70-200 f/4 L IS, 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 L IS, TS-E 24 f/3.5 L II, 100 f/2.8 L Macro IS, 10-22 f3.5-4.5, 17-55 f/2.8 L IS, 50 f/1.4, 85 f/1.8, Canon 1.4 Extender III, 5 Canon 600 EX-RT, 2 Canon ST-E3 Transmitters, Canon Pixma PRO-10 Printer

My main reason for carrying a laptop+external drive is backing up the photos (RAW+JPG from Canon 60D/80D).
Editing a few images for fun, but final editing at home.

I bought a second-hand hp laptop for the purpose, as I don't want to loose or risk damaging an expensive new one.

Downside: it is fairly heavy, low RAM
Upside: it is quite robust
Indeed this summer it fell down 5' out of my backpack onto a stone quay and from there another 2' on to the pebble beach below. I thought this was the end of it, but back at my digs I found it was still working perfectly.

I'll be bringing both my 7D Mark II and my 5D Mark III, I suspect the 7D Mark II will get the most use.

So did my 7D2. 90% of the work load. First shot in Palo Verde park on a boat cruise. Second outside the condo we stayed at.
