If you go to Big Cities like Jakarta, Bandung, Yogjakarta, Surabaya, Bali, fear nothing about memory card, since you can buy it directly in the mall, the price si good, and i'm sure that it's cheaper in Indonesia than in Sydney.

Tiny correction: Bali is an island, not a city :)

True that you can buy memory cards in the bigger cities, but I'd rather bring some that I know aren't knock-offs. Indonesia isn't squeamish about software piracy, imitation goods, etc., so be careful where you shop.

I think the PSD (Portable Storage Device) suggestion is a good one. When I went I brought one and a laptop to backup photos to, even though I had enough memory card storage space to not have to delete and reuse cards. But some would say I'm too paranoid :D In any case PSDs aren't a bad idea, and if you go that route to be able to wipe and reuse cards then consider bringing 2 so you have a real backup.

I spent 2.5 weeks traveling Indo shooting surf and fishing for mags. I pondered this same thing for a while and finally broke down and bought a Macbook pro. Problem solved and also kept me sane on the trip by soaking up some time editing and cataloging photos.

In 2.5 weeks, i shot over 8000 frames

How'd you find it having a laptop over there, with the constant threat of safety, etc? The only reason I don't want to take my MacBook Pro is for the fact i'm concerned it'll get pinched...

I won't be staying in decent accomodation, which is why i'm hesitant. The other reason is I don't want to get sucked into always having a laptop there at my disposal...I want to be out and about seeing things. I went to Europe last year and it was so easy to just come home and spend hours on the computer and waste time...

get a netbook instead, the hp mini with charger weighs around 1.3 kgs and add a portable hard drive on top to get redundant copies.
you can slip it in your bag anytime.

a macbook pro will bog you down quite badly.. wondering why apple dont make any netbook.


- i like taking pictures but not showing it to anyone - go figure :)

i bet u`ll spend minimum 8GB/day :)

120GB data bank is the smartest solution for long journey to the place like Indonesia :)

I'm traveling to China for 15 days...

100 images a day is far-far fewer that I will shoot in a photogenic situation. However, it depends on what your priorities are. My daughter was totally happy to shoot an entire two weeks in Europe with an el-cheapo dibital camera she picked up at a supermarket checkout stand. It had no removable memory and could store only 128 pretty low quality images. I don't think that she even filled up that camera.

When I go to China for 15 days; I will take 24 GIG of CF cards (I shoot with a 30D and a 40D). I will also take a notebook computer and a small physical size but large capacity external hard drive.

I shoot RAW and also shoot a lot of Pano strings. I will most often shoot AEB (auto exposure bracketing). My Canon DSLR cameras make shooting AEB as easy as shooting single shots. Just select AEB on the menu, then select burst mode and the camera will fire a burst of three shots with exposure right on, and +1 and -1 stop. Most often my right on exposure is correct but, why take a chance with a once in a life-time (at least for me) trip? Additionally, I might want to composite the AEB images into a HDR image.

I travel around with a 10" netbook which has a 160mb HD. Download your pics every night and you'll only carry a few with you. My top of the line netbook is only $400 and it's a full computer compared to a portable drive where it costs $400 for $20g.

so if he runs out of cards -- and my guess is he will -- and has files stored only on the hyperdrive would you say the files are backed up?

ed rader

Good point--no! What I would do in that situation is only format cards once you've filled them all. Only format the 1 or 2 you'll use that day. That way you can at least have SOME of the photos backed up.

A whole gigabite per day would be more than enough for me. On an average days shooting I will bring back at the most maybe 50 images. Even shooting MotoGP bikes non stop I have only once managed to fill 8 GB in 3 days. And that's shooting RAW.
