For the past trips I would take my Canon EOS, a few SD cards, shoot raw and review/organize/post-process images back home using Photoshop Lightroom. All my previous trips did not exceed 2-3 weeks and a couple of higher capacity SD cards were enough to fulfill storage needs.
This time I am planning to spend significantly more time (at least 3-6 months) on the road in Asia-Pacific. Sooner or later I will need to offload photos from SD cards to some other storage. I may also want to share some photos with others (do not want to give up ability to shoot raw, so this implies conversion to jpeg) and do at least some initial review / tagging while traveling. I do not plan to bring any mobile device larger than smartphone. Most of the time will rely on public wifi hotspots, some legs / weeks will be in remote places without any access to the Internet. This presents some challenges.
Currently I am evaluating these options:
A) External HDD
Pros: the cheapest option (actually would not cost anything as I have suitable drive already); Internet access is not needed;
Cons: provides just the storage; easily lost/damaged together with an entire archive;
B) Lightroom CC cloud storage
Pros: files are transfered to "safe" external location; ability to access, organize and share images from any connected device; ability to edit photos from any connected device; integration with Lightroom Classic and other software;
Cons: requires reliable net access; costs money;
C) general cloud storage (Dropbox, Goodle Drive etc.)
Pros: files are transfered to "safe" external location; ability to access, organize and share raw files from any connected device;
Cons: requires reliable net access; lower functionality compared to option B for similar cost;
At the moment I am leaning towards Lightroom CC due to extra features and flexibility, hoping I can find reasonably fast Internet connection every couple of weeks.
What other options may be worth considering?
