digital storage?Hi everyone,
I was wondering what digital storage people were using whilst in south America. I am flying off in April and will be planning to use a lot of gb's. my first thought was online storage (cloud) etc, but I fear the upload speeds might mean I would be sat by a computer all night uploading photos. what do most travellers do? I was going to take a hard drive but I wanted to send photos home but buying usb pens etc seems such a hassle.
comments all welcome,

I use a colourspace UDMA device. It's purely a backup device for memory cards. It doesn't do anything else like a laptop, but it's small, quick and designed for the purpose of backing up after a shoot or when travelling. I have the 500gb but you get up to 1tb I think. It will load a card up in 16mb per second, so an 8gb card is done in minutes.
Not cheap at 250-300 pounds for something so specific, but my photos are precious to me and so is space in my bag, so it worked well for my needs. Google it.
I keep my memory cards in a separate bag to this device so I have 2 copies when I'm away in different locations on my person.
