Hi guys



I have been shooting with D50 for some 5 months now and am very happy with its performance. Now i am planning to ride a long distance trip. I have a 512 MB memory chip. I am riding to Kashmir, India. I am in Bangalore. I would not have access to computers there.

Now what i want to know is

" Is there any mechanism through which i can transfer the photos in the camera's memory stick to a flash drive or any memory storage without using a computer?"

thanks

Arvind

There are portable drive solutions like an Ipod photo, or some portable hardrive solutions that also let you view your photos. These options are not cheap and will run you at least $300 or more USD. Another option is to pick up some more SD cards. A 1gb SD card can hold almost 300 JPEG fine images. Two of these with your current 512 gives you nearly 700 images and would probably be the most economical solution.

if u want to view your photo in the storage device. just get the Ipod photo or creative zen..... this device attached with LCD panel and u can view your photo on the spot.

if u just only want a device to dump in all your photo and will open it only when u reach home, then "PD70X" is not bad. in s'pore here sale S$300 for 40GB. cheaper than the Ipod or creative. transfer speed also super. 1GB photo backup within 2 min. I'm using it....... :lol::lol::lol::lol:

There is a cheap box which does what you want - connects a USB device like a card reader to a hard disk for copying without a computer, but I cannot remember where I saw it. I think it was made by Belkin, but there may be others.

Get you a few of these and keep on shotting or invest in a laptop computer

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211314

some of the suggestions that were offered above were great but very expensive

here you can get a 2gb sd card @150x speed for less than $50 shipping and handling. Spend a few hundred on these items and you will always have them and can carry them with you for backup

I have 2, 2gb cards andI can get around 1500 pics at fine and large on them

sure it tells you that you are going to get about 567 pics when it is empty butI got 755 on one and 751 on another one.

If you then run out of space then start shooting in medium and fine

that will almost double your image count

Ialways carry my laptop computer with me and a small card reader to connect to my laptop, if yuou don't have a laptop then think about getting one. you can also use it to connect to the interet almost anywhere in the world now. I think it is a much better investment than the options given above

you can also pick up a old used laptop. When my daughter went on her honeymoonI let her use my old laptop and it worked fine for transfering pics and viewing them.

I just hate to spend $400-4600 on a little monitor that is only good for looking and storeing pics

you coudl buy a lot of 2 gb SD cards for that

let me us know what you decide
