This question is a duplicate. In particular a duplicate of these questions:
- How can I backup my RAW photos while travelling without Internet access?
- How can I backup my photos while travelling?
Both very good resources, but technology is always advancing, the 4 year old questions are not. The Stackexchange format doesn't take into account updates to older questions, hence I'm asking anew.
The options for backing up presented so far:
- Options where the backup includes sending home stuff or just being really careful
- Multiple memory cards
- Portable DVD/CD burner with integrated card reader
- Portable hard drive (HDD/SSD) with integrated card reader
- Netbook (this was 4 years ago, what to do today?)
- Options where the backup includes some online functionality
- DropBox / OneDrive / Box some cloud storage
- Custom NAS at home
The options for editing are pretty limited:
- Netbook (again, what to do today?)
- Some funky custom RasberryPi solution
Have I missed anything important? Is there anything new I forgot? Portable Blueray drive? Magic Internet able to upload Gigabytes of RAW images from the middle of nowhere?
When thinking of far-away travels in non-first-world countries I don't think the cloud solution is viable. Being stuck in some pretty awful (speed wise) Internet Cafes I know it is a hassle to upload just one image of 5MB. Now imagining backing one of my 16GB CF cards... Impossible. I think the only solution is to send stuff home. I like the idea of DVDs, but that would always take a lot of DVDs when using large CF cards.
Editing wise for e.g. Blogging there is no real way around taking a small laptop/netbook which of course sucks if you're doing longer travels.
