I used a 10" HP notebook (10"x7"X3/4") and each night like clockwork I downloaded all the pictures (all shot in Raw) into it. It has a 130 GB hard drive. I then copied all the pictured to a Western Digital 500GB mini hard drive. I then formatted the cards and was ready for the next day's shooting. Lou
Very helpful info & Thanks mate

Wow! Just awesome! That Sigma sure looks like an awesome lens, one I'm seriously considering. Keep posting pictures like this and I won't be able to resist much longer (well, I got a new RRS catalog today and there's a number of things in it I want. Sigh! too many wants and not enough budget). Add on to all that being able to do a trip like this - double sigh! Guess I'll just enjoy your pictures.

I've love reading through your series Lou. Love the prologue here too - sets the scene.

Excellent series, I like the last two the best. The elephant herd with that great scenery in the background really puts the herd into perspective.

mtnman - Glad you are enjoying Africa through these photos. A map will be includes with my next post on Amboseli NP.

mtngal - With your 365 project and work to boot I admire that you can keep up with it all. Just throw away the RRS catalogue you will be able to narrow your choices. Go for the Sigma 150-500!

Kevin - Glad you are enjoying the narrative. The parks are all unique and I enjoyed learning some of the history and facts as much as I did taking the photos.
