comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
beyond that virtual limit, that is only known to the encryption tool.In case someone would format the partition you simply recopy the tool and you can access your files again. This will actually increase your security not only against viruses but also against the authorities, if that would be any concern. You would need a special virus written for that scenario to compromise, but this simply too unlikely, as there is no benefit for the virus in it.

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
@Billy ONeal: I expect Internet Cafe computers to be already infected and therefore I have to expect them to be able to compromise my Stick. If you can disable autorun, my virus could enable it again. But that is not the real issue. Protection of your pictures is. The proper strategy works like this to protect an virus from wiping your stick: The virtual size of the stick gets reduced to a fraction of its physical size.this is where the de/encryption tool resides.The virus will think that this device is not bigger and could only wipe that part.The pictures are laying in a hidden part

comment How can I backup my photos while travelling?
Surely that is a good start and should protect you from some troubles, but please don't think that this is a swiss army knife that will provide unlimited protection. A good protection/usability ratio would be the use of a encrypted partition together with a gateway tool, that has exclusive writing permissions for that partition. This means no virus, unless written for your scenario, should be able to overwrite your data.

If they really laugh at you at NatGeo for that reason, then we have a clear evidence whats wrong with journalism...

comment What is “Highlight Tone Priority”?
Well it seems to restrict your ISO range, but apart from that it is nothing that can't be achieved otherwise. I have seen lots of video folks that are dealing with ALO and HTP when using their canon DSLRs since here these changes can have a higher impact on the results obviously.
